Even though it isn't even Halloween yet, I confess that I've been thinking about Christmas cards, because it's a tricky thing, getting the Christmas card picture just right. I definitely tend towards the offbeat; last year's card had the kid riding a tractor and when she was two, she was throttling Elmo. Let's put it this way: I'm never going to be sending out a soft-focus commercial portrait (or even having that kind of picture taken in the first place).
The other day, I went through all the photos from our Canada trip, and showed one to my husband. "It's not very Christmas-y", he said. I pointed out that the girlie was wearing a green fleece hoodie and looks distinctly elfin; I don't think he bought it. I may have to keep looking.
In the meantime, I've been poking around at Shutterfly, looking at holiday cards and Christmas invitations and New Year’s cards because for the past five years, I've gotten my cards via Shutterfly. They're easy to work with, the cards are delivered in a snap, and there are lots of options.
I tend to go for a plain photo card like the "classic without edge", but a "gorgeous gift tag" on just the right picture could be perfect and stylish. Then again, I'm kind of loving the girlie in the sea in the "all wrapped up" card.
It's Christmas-y. Think I can talk my husband into it?
