christmas cards

If I were going to send out Christmas cards this year, this is what I would do:

I would have my friend Christine make a sketch of our family, instead of trying to get everyone to look at the camera with a decent expression on their faces all at the same time. I met Christine when I was going to school in Berkeley a million years ago. She is still the most creative girl I know. She can walk into a thrift store and in two seconds find a semi-decent looking item and turn it into something fabulous in the blink of an eye.

The only problem with Christine is that she lives in Washington and I live in CO, so the odds of us being neighbors again are pretty slim.

The decision to skip the Christmas cards for right now has made things much more relaxed around here. Maybe we'll go for Valentine's Day.

I am skipping them this year too. I will make up for it with a baby announcement in March. Some times something just has to go.

I have a love/hate thing with Christmas cards... as in, I love to dream and scheme about them. Heck, sometimes I even love stamping/making/assembling them.

But when it gets down to it, to the actually having to write a name and address on an envelope and mail it out... that's when I start hating.

I think I might copycat a friend of mine, and opt for the ever-so-personal E-Christmas card. I'm thinking that's my best option for doing them this year!
