I loved the idea that Kim had one year sending out “story cards”. They are Christmas cards that tell a story of your year. Last year I adopted the idea and people seemed to really enjoy them. I know it can get a little cheesy when all your friends and family are reading about your entire year and YES, they may think it is over the top, BUT I know the grandparents appreciate it and I like that I can save them over the years, looking back on the highlights of each year!
This year, I did a Top Ten in 2012. It turned out pretty cute. I got these from Shutterfly and although they are pricier than Costco or Sams, they always have coupon codes (if not sent to your email than google them). I saved $60 on my order with 3 different coupon codes! Yipee :) They print on super high quality card-stock and the pictures always come out great! I was able to get them all out in the mail today…. one more thing off my list of things to do!
Where do you like getting your holiday cards from? When do you send yours out?
