Happy Monday! I’m feeling generous today, so I’m going to fill you in on a little tidbit of my life: I’m a procrastinator. I don’t mean to be one, but it just happens. Today I’m talking about one procrastination that’s actually turned out to be a good thing.
Everyone sends Christmas cards in December—my mailbox proves that in the weeks leading up to Christmas. But how many people send holiday cards…say…in February or March? I’m betting not many. So that’s what we do. Now my procrastination is our tradition! We’re such rule breakers over here—ha! (case in point: Holiday Card 2011 and Holiday Card 2010)
I designed these (based off a design I found from trolling pinterest) in December, but then life got in the way (hello, procrastination) and I didn’t actually get them printed until January. One thing led to another and I finally sent them out the last weekend in February. Admittedly, that’s a little early for us to be sending them out, but I wanted our friends and family to get them before the baby arrived. I actually impressed myself by getting them mailed that early.
Instead of using one of the popular card sites to get them printed from, I found a great discount code and free shipping with Vistaprint. I should’ve just gone for the “regular” postcard size, but I was being a little over-zealous and went for the “oversized” size. They were huge and required a regular postage stamp, but I think they came out looking pretty good!
sorry for the blank space on the right, but that’s a postcard for ya!
So there you have it—our holiday card for 2012. I’m already excited about our cards for this year when it’ll be the three of us (plus Bella). Now I need to work on our baby announcements! Anyone want to bet on what month I’ll actually send them out?
