Christmas Cards

Here's my favorite photo from our photo shoot, but oddly it is not the one I chose for our cards. Colin was unwilling to pose with CRB, so I may end up doing a few New Years cards with just Colin. After all, he's my boy too ;-)

Sunday we took photos, and I got the cards and envelopes printed. Sam's Club won my business because I was able to use an online tool to design the cards and pick them up in one hour. A side benefit was the 100 cards for $25 dollars, including premium envelopes. Since I am a geek, I have the addresses for most everyone in an Access Database, and I use Mail Merge in Word to print the return labels and addresses on the envelopes. Once I had made a few updates to the address, six minutes later I had envelopes. Now I just need stamps and Ho, Ho, Ho I am done with cards.

If anyone would like a card from us, just send me an email with your address to classicrockbaby@gmail.com

No time for

Christmas cards? Since about 2003 I have really taken pride in creating a wonderful holiday photo card. For several years Colin graced the cards. The past 2 years Colin has had to share the spotlight with CRB. This year, I have no photos. Now that my grades are submitted I have time to do this but it looks like I am late for getting these printed. I guess I could print photo cards at Target again but I always am nervous about how under/over exposed my cards will be. There is a photo store in town, but gosh, I did not have any luck there last year. I really wanted to do some cards through Tiny Prints but I would need to complete the order by tomorrow. Yikes. New Years cards?? Are those cool? They don't exactly say Merry Christmas to me.
