Have you noticed Christmas items going into stores earlier and earlier each year? I think it was July when I walked into our local Hobby Lobby and saw the back area of their store had three rows of Christmas inventory. Soon stores will just keep Christmas stock on the shelves year round!
While I think that’s a bit too much, the thing is, I really enjoy the holidays. Christmas is only second to Thanksgiving in my book. One of the things I enjoy most about the holidays is getting Christmas cards in the mail. I think it was about 4 years ago I noticed our group of friends started sending photo greeting cards. I have to admit, I enjoy getting them in the mail.
We have friends and family scattered around the states and to get a photo greeting card from them makes me feel special. I love seeing how everyone has or hasn’t changed in the span of a year. The best part about them? They serve a double purpose. Knowing I’m not pitching them in the recycling bin after the holiday is over makes me feel good about getting them.
So with the arrival of Baby Girl, I’ve been thinking about sending photo Christmas cards. Around here, when you get pregnant, almost all the material marketed towards you includes a flyer for Shutterfly announcement cards, so this has been brewing in the back of my mind. When the Clever 1000 announced the opportunity to talk about Shutterfly’s holiday photo cards, you know I had to jump on it!
My only problem is choosing just one design. With over 700 holiday cards, it hasn’t been easy. However, I did narrow it down to these designs:
Help me choose! Which one should I pick?
