Everyone is in full Fall/Halloween mode now right? Well I am too but I'm also in full Holiday mode. Once Fall comes around not only am I thinking about the changing of the weather, the fall weather crock pot recipes and the trips with the boys to the pumpkin patch but I also start thinking about Black Friday shopping and preparing for Christmas. I know I can't be the only one?
One way I prepare for the Holidays is being prepared with my holiday photo cards. When Daddy B and I first got married we took both our Christmas card lists and combined (and shortened) them into 1 list. I would buy the cookie cutter same ol'- same ol' holiday cards in bulk boxes from Kmart or Walmart. Then one year we received cards from friends/family of the same card we had sent them! We joked that we all had the same great taste but I like being different. Then I decided no more bulk box holiday cards. I started sending holiday photo cards. What better way to be different than sharing family photos with those near and far that may not get to see the family often.
We usually end up recycling the Christmas cards we get and keeping the photos that were included in some. With the holiday cards from Tiny Prints no more tossing of cards and keeping the photos you can just keep the whole card. With the holiday cards from Tiny Prints you can customize your card front to back with photos and text- all for free. That is a sure fire way to know that you have a unique holiday card that's all your own. Yes the template ay be the same as others but the photos and words become all your own. Tiny Prints not only offers the flat photo cards but you can also get folded, tri-folded, postcards, flip cards and even circle cards. I love the idea of the circle cards the people that receive the cards can hang it on their Christmas tree instead of trying to find somewhere to keep the holiday cards. You could hang any left over cards on your own tree. I found a few designs that I like.
