This Christmas Will Be THE Christmas

I am declaring it on the blog today. I WILL send out holiday cards this year. If I write it, I have to stick by it, right?

It's not that I'm not a fan of photo cards...oh, no--quite the opposite! Photo holiday cards are my fav! I love seeing all of the designs and my loved ones with their families. It's sentimental and getting mail on those days is extra fun.

So, why haven't I ever sent out those cards I love so much? Hmm, it's pretty easy to explain.

While I take hundreds of pictures throughout the year, I always seem to leave the husband y yo out of those pics. I have a few here and there, but I need to get a goodie. And then I gotta get Mr. Niko and Ms. Scout to make an appearance as well.

It's a chore, but I'm getting my Christmas cards done this year! It's a must.

And I'm using Shutterfly! Oooh, check out a few of my picks. Which one will I go with? Time will tell.




Heck, I may even spring for the holiday address labels!

Do you do holiday cards? Are you a photo card person? Do tell.

--Oh, and in case you haven't heard yet...Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly… sign up: !--

This is such an awesome deal, isn't it?

Um - thank you! Deal!

We are getting our Christmas photos taken this weekend. I'm trying to think of a good place to go in STL. Thinking "engagement style" but not that super cheezy kind.

I hope they pick me for 50 cards, that'd be fantastic!

Nice! I always want to send cards but don't want to pay for them. Looks I get to have some free this year. :) Thanks.

Hey Joi!!
I've been lurking the last few posts - sorry I haven't commented. I'm not a photo card person, but I do love sending and recieving Christmas cards. So, email me your address so I can put you on the list! :)
LOVE the stripes in the kitchen - genius!
And your beautiful artwork is amazing, and totally inspirational!
We're off to Winterthur tomorrow for the design conference I was telling you about.
P.S. - how close are you to Chicago?
talk soon,

That is an awesome thing those free cards! I always use, and I send out new years cards. Gets me past the rush of Christmas, but still lets me check in!

Photo Cards are so fun!! I love when I go to someones house and my photo card is on their refrigerator! makes me smile. I have to admit though my (dog)Marlee seems to be the star of our photo cards.

The countdown is a cute idea! Love photo cards!

Yes, we usually send cards. The last few years we have sent recycled cards, but this year with the deal, we just may send these!

I want so much to be a Christmas card person, but I'm just not sure.
