Christmas cards have their own special place in our home. Taped to the door. It's how I always remember my mom displaying the Christmas cards our family received when I was young. My parents would get a lot of cards and I loved the way they made the door look festive. I've brought this simple tradition into my home and I think that while all the cards look great, don't you think photo cards look even more festive and special?

Last year, I had the full intention to mail out Christmas cards with our family picture on it. Only L wasn't here yet. I didn't have any good pictures of us and my belly. And, even though I love L's sonogram pictures - they look a little creepy on a card. I mean, she was actually looking at us and smiling in one! So, I ended up grabbing regular cards and mailing those out. But this year, I have no excuse. My beautiful girl is here and I have someone to take our family picture.

I am so excited to make our cards!

So, in my attempt to get ahead of things, I really need to get these cards made and mailed. Some will be traveling as far as Germany! Have you checked out Shutterfly's holiday card selection? You should! Seriously, there is such a huge selection to choose from. I may be on there all day...

I am partial to these though.

If you like the more traditional cards, they have a great selection of Merry Christmas cards.
I am really liking this one!

And, if you need any creative gift ideas, they've got the right stuff. I made M one of these photo mugs for Christmas last year. I LOVED the way it came out. I love giving personal gifts and this one was perfect. The pictures looked great and it holds up well in the dishwasher. M was really happy with his gift. It gives a little extra cheer to his morning coffee!

These mugs with a design would look great under the Christmas tree!

Planning on sending out photo cards this year?
