I ordered holiday cards. Already. Usually, I'm frantically throwing together a card right around Black Friday to catch a deal on photo sites and make sure I'm getting the cards in time to mail out.
This year, my neighbor mentioned she had ordered her cards by Halloween, which prompted me to start thinking. Maybe I don't have to stress myself out 3 weeks before Christmas. Maybe, I can plan ahead. Maybe, I can take my time and get it all done now.
So I did. There was still the requisite gnashing of teeth over which site to use, several projects started with various layouts of photos, and the final version that typically ends in "good enough!"
