November 1 does not mean it’s time to start celebrating Christmas.
But. (I’m sorry.)
There are a couple things that I do early in November to help make Christmas a little easier, and one is order Christmas cards as soon as possible*.
This is the time of year when lots of sales are running, which I’m sure helps alleviate last minute stress for stationery companies. My problem this year is I have this adorable child, whose photo must grace our card, and this opens up a pretty much infinite number of possibilities.
So I decided I’m getting a card from Paperless Post. I have used Minted, Rifle Paper, Pinhole Press, and Paperless Post over the years, and there is not one company I prefer over another. I choose my cards based solely on design. But I knew that if I didn’t narrow down to just one website, I’d be lost in a sea of great cards, and 85 tabs open on my computer, until I found the right one. Which I would then second guess after clicking order. You do what you gotta do.
Besides nothing beats the crisp, white and gold box from Paperless Post. When it arrives, my heart does this warm, fuzzy, jumpy thing, I get so excited to open it.
(I really want this photo to be black and white)
So all my favorites are from their site, but you can find great cards just about anywhere.
*This is also the time to order those Peanuts stamps you had to run to 5 post offices to find last year, just saying.
