i realize this may be a bigger deal for you than for me, but… my christmas cards are in the mail!  about 5 years ago or so, we had family pictures taken, i ordered cards, then i couldn’t finish!  the thought of addressing about 100 cards by hand and then also the cost of stamps made me decide sending out cards wasn’t such a great idea after all.  i handed out as many as i could, but ended up throwing the rest away!

but not this year!  i am running a little late, but my cards are done and in the mail!  i ordered my cards through minted and could not have been happier with the process.  the hardest part was deciding which design to choose!  in the end, i ended up going really simple, with a gilded edge, which complimented our picture really well.  (thanks cameron, for the great pictures!

the standard paper is so nice and thick!  i also had a collage of pictures done on the back, but forgot to take a picture of that.

we also went fancy and did the gold envelope liners, which were way easier to put in than i expected.

we had a really simple message written along the bottom, and kept the overall design clean.

(please ignore the bad choice of nail polish – i have decided i am definitely NOT a red nail polish girl)

my favorite part was the FREE printed addresses!  i just typed in all the addresses and they came beautifully printed!  even better, next year they’ll still have all my addresses stored and the process will go that much quicker!

you guys, its not too late to order your christmas cards.  i mean, maybe call them new years cards if you want.  or my sister-in-law sends out groundhog’s day cards every year – do that!  i love getting cards during this season, even if they come after christmas!

    been following you for years now i think…
    The orange/rust waffle sweater you wore, I bought 1 each for my son’s girlfriends and nearly 1 for my daughter.
    Last nite, my daughter came home and said look at my cute sweater (she’s a big shopper like me) from target….i said, yep, i got 2 EXACTLY like it under the tree…..so ironic that I got to schedule a christmas breakfast for all of us because we won’t to see the girls open their presents…
    send me your email and I will email you a pic of the three of them with it on………

    Out of A L L the sweaters out there……my daughter got the same one I did…..
    Merry Christmas Stilson Family!
