Holiday Cards in November?

Shocking. Yes, shocking because it is November and I already have my holiday cards. I'd love to say it was because I am uber organized and this is my norm but I'd be lying. I have never been big on the whole holiday card thing and apparently my friends aren't either. I usually receive cards from my college and graduate school, one or two friends and that is it. The only reason I have felt remotely compelled to send holiday cards lately is to provide updated photos to people that want to see my son.

My usual holiday card ritual has been - open the mailbox, see a card and come to the realization that I need to get my butt in gear and make a holiday card. The only year this year is different is because I am fortunate enough to have friends in high places. Okay, a friend at Tiny Prints that gave me the opportunity to try out the service.

I love the holiday card that I came up with and what really was impressive is that when I placed my order I was sent an email informing me that my photo is blurry. Although I knew the photo was blurry I think it is great customer service because it is clear that all of the orders are reviewed by a person before completion.

In addition to my cards, I also ordered really nice envelopes and matching address labels. Now I just have to make my way to the post office so that I can purchase the stamps. Um, yeah - check in on my after Thanksgiving to see if I've done that.

Remember my procrastinating ways? Yeah. I'm all over that. Stat!

In the meantime, aren't my regular address labels cute? I ordered these some time ago and I love the design. I used the regular delivery process and received them in about a week. However, if I needed an order sooner there are express delivery options.

Tiny Prints has a lot more to offer and if you are looking for stationary I suggest checking them out. And I'm not just saying that because they are my friends - as a matter of fact, remember that Happy Gram I received the other week? Primrose Schools chose Tiny Prints to make their cards and I had nothing to do with that!

A big thanks to Tiny Prints for providing me with the opportunity to try out the service.

Those cards are precious. I guess I better get on the ball. My youngest is 14 months and we haven't gotten any professional pictures of him yet.

I am getting nervous that I don't have my photo taken of my family, let alone the cards ordered! Thanks for giving a push!
