I'm going to kick it off with a bunch of awesome ideas I've found having to do with DIY Holiday Cards.  As many of you know Christmas is my favorite holiday...and since Miss E was born I've wanted to commemorate each year with a special Christmas Card.  So far I've kept this promise to myself and I've got to keep the ball rolling.  Using my Pinterest Board "oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree" I've managed to keep track of my Christmas ideas all year long.  Here are some cool card ideas I came across...

This is probably the photo my girls would love to take.  Heh.

At this point I can only imagine two of the three girls eating the snow a\instead of blowing it!  Check out this website though, it has some amazing photos!

Six tips on family holiday photos.  Cute!

My personal favorite!

What to do with all those cards you receive???

Have an iPhone?  Take photos with your phone to make the holiday photo card show up as the contact photo when they ring you!


We Do This!  The girls love their book of cards from Christmas, Birthdays, Valentine's Day.  Using a hole punch and long ribbon I add on cards with each holiday.  They love reading their cards over and over and I don't have guilt about throwing cards from special family members away!

I love all of these photo card ideas! I have been so lousy at holiday cards! Maybe one year I will get them ordered in time and actually MAILED. Hey I can do the 22nd if you want. I finally almost have the Jacks done, and I thought of a couple of good ideas. :) Let me know. Hope you had a good Halloween, and are drying out. How'd you fare in the hurricane?

Those are all pretty nice cards. I am guessing it is fake snow, however.

Your picture choices are fab and the card book is a great idea! Hope you are ok :)

There, in a gloomy street not far from the monastic walls of the Sorbonne, he pursued his favorite speculations. Sometimes he spent hours in the great libraries of Paris, those catacombs of departed authors, rummaging among their hoards of dusty and obsolete works in quest of food for his unhealthy appetite. He was, in a manner, a literary ghoul, feeding in the charnel-house of decayed literature. Flights to Douala
