Today I walked out to mail box and had an incredible surprise - my first two Christmas cards arrived!
I proudly put them on my display and can't wait to watch it fill up over the next weeks.
I love getting Christmas cards in the mail - and while I love cards of all kinds, my favorites are the ones that let me know what has been going on over the past year. Photo cards and annual Christmas cards do that best - but they also seem like the type of thing you do when you have kids. So, our first Christmas, I wrote a Christmas poem and designed a Christmas card in powerpoint. I've gotten a bit fancier (now I use photoshop) but I still love designing our Christmas card and sharing a bit of our lives with family and friends and across the country who we don't get to see as often as we would like. I put our Christmas cards in the mail today so I feel comfortable sharing them with you. Yay!
Below you can see the card I designed and the poem I wrote to mail. I ordered them from VistaPrint (thanks for the suggestion Nina!) and they look incredible! They are the over sized postcards (6x9) and the colors look really bright and clean. I am thrilled with how this years card turned out!
