Speaking of lists, my Christmas card list is one of my favorite parts of the year. I love getting mail, any mail. I’ve been known to sing the Blues Clues song while sashaying my way to the mail box “Here’s the mail, it never fails, it makes me wanna wag my tail” but let that be our little secret, mkay?
I think that photo cards have pretty much dominated the Christmas cards category over the last few years and I have to say, I’m okay with that. I like seeing my niece’s cute mug on my refrigerator. Storkie.com asked me to check out their Christmas card selection and I discovered that the next best thing to photo Christmas cards? MAGNETIC PHOTO CHRISTMAS CARDS.
I don’t know Jake, Rosie or Tabitha but I know that I’d leave this on my fridge because hello, cuteness. And also because this is way more fun than magnets for the local pizza place.
I clicked around some more because they also offer traditional cards WITH FOIL, which makes me all nostalgic for the days of ordering Christmas cards from my school fundraiser catalogue. And then I found the baby section and immediately called my best friend.
Tiffani and I spent the rest of the afternoon browsing their baby shower invitations because they have super cute, customizable invites that we plan to use for her baby shower this fall.
But that has nothing to do with anything other than the fact that you can totally spend hours customizing illustrated pregnant girls to look like yourself and completely neglect to do any laundry.
My own Christmas cards for the past few years are tucked in a basket waiting for me to get my act together and make a cute Christmas craft with them. I’m a big fan of Ali Edwards yearly tradition of using cardstock + a square punch to create a layout using images from the christmas cards her family receives each year. Here is a great post from her on how she does it! This year I’m totally going to conquer this goal. Seriously.

I’m still in the list-making stage this year, gathering addresses from new friends, updating addresses of family that’s moved. I made this little Christmas card list planner to keep everything together.

Then all you have to do is choose which cards you’ll be sticking in the mailbox this year!
