I have made my for the last several years. But it's expensive so in light of trying to cut back this year I bought mine last week. I try to get them mailed out just after Thanksgiving. You have to have a "target date" when you make them. It can be a long process!

I have most of my list ready to go. I was looking at mine for the last week saying I am gonna do that next weekend. After election day. So I guess I will be working on them tomorrow, unless I get more kids to babysit as some of the families need rest for those who had husbands as a candidate. Anyway mine will be addressed by Friday and print pictures Friday and Sign them Saturday and just wait to mail them out till BF!!

OMG you guys are a riot! But I love being able to post with people who enjoy the holidays so much! My husband is just no fun! I know in his own way he loves holidays, but he HATES to spend $$ and when I talk about holidays he wants to go another direction! I want to try and get my own pics of our kids this year and make some photo cards. My only problem is I don't have much natural light in the house, and I want to do it in front of the tree....but we don't put the tree up until Thanksgiving! I have all the camera equipment I need so I REALLY do not want to go to a studio..... Otherwise, I am all for getting Christmas cards ready NOW!

I am disappointed. We have experienced a COLD and a BIG SCRATCH one on each of the faces of my boys in the past week--and so I STILL cannot take the picture that I want to have printed and put inside my already finished cards.....
I don't know how to do photoshop stuff. I mean I can correct red-eye on digital pics, but that is about it. I can't fix a big scratch. :(
Not that it is late, I am just wishing to be done with them, you know.


Good for you jenrein and justjessie99, start the festivities ;) bring on the crafts :D
