christmas cards


I know, i know.  It's only October.  But I'm already thinking about Christmas cards.  I love the ones from minted and even tinyprints.  Do you know any etsy shops?  What do you do for Christmas cards?  (you're probably a normal person who thinks about this in the appropriate month of nov/dec but just in case you are nuts like moi)!  

also.
it's freeeeeezing here.  i don't know where fall went but i'd like it to come back for our last week in switz. please.

  4. Good for you! I finished buying my cards and stickers for them yesterday...even have my holiday stamps! :)

    It will be here before you know it...actually, my mother writes close to 200 Christmas cards every year with long hand written letters to each, that is individual to the person, so, she starts September 1st!

  6. So, I'm new to your blog but LOVING IT!

    I am so into christmas cards and have been looking for the right one this year since last christmas!

    I love the one you shared with from Minted. I don't think you can ever go wrong with a minted card. :0)

  8. Love the card! I like Tinyprints too! Usually I do a photo card from Costco (like everyone else we know). It's cheap and easy except for picking or taking the picture.

  11. I have a draft up on my computer right now. From Minted. They're expensive, but they're beautiful. I just wish it was possible to take a decent picture of all four of us (us and our little boys) together!

  16. i can't lie. i've been thinking about the Christmas cards too. but my hangup is this: is it crazy to think that amidst interviews for residency that I will actually be able to send them out?

    and secretly, i'm also wondering if it's dumb to just send out a card of me and the hubs. there. i said it. go ahead and judge me, newlyweds. i hate myself for it a little bit too.

    thoughts?

  17. OH! Your blog is just so sweet! I'm so glad I found you! I'm a bit ridiculous like you and am already thinking about holidays and cards too. I usually go all out but last year I just had my daughter, so we skipped the crazy/artsy (that I usually do) and went with a simple baby shot. This year I'm gonna step it up!! Check in on my blog and you'll see!

  18. Last year I sent out an Xmas card of just me and my dog...I felt like i had to send something! I've been dating my boyfriend now since April, but since we aren't married I don't know if it would be appropriate to send out a card with both of us on it? hmmm....

    I LOVE your blog! it's so dainty, vintage feeling :)

  20. I am already brainstorming our Christmas picture and getting a few designs bookmarked. I have a girlfriend who has her own etsy store and has made every single annoucement, invitation and Christmas card for me for the past four years. I check out tiny prints and other various websites and then send them to her so she can design something for me that is original!

  25. I must admit...I bought mine last year and I can't wait to use them! I even had them out the other day admiring them! They are of course of St. Nicholas (you must go to my blog to see why that is an "of course!")

  28. you're so smart.
    i'm one of those people who are constantly being drug behind life by my hair trying to catch up. Christmas comes and i go into panic mode and then i'm not really happy with any of the gifts i got anyone and i wish i'd sent more Christmas cards and i wonder where december fourth through twenty-fourth went...
    o bother.
