Yay! It's December. I can official start getting ready for Christmas and celebrate Hanukkah!
Actually my traditional start to the holidays is over Thanksgiving weekend. After I've stuffed myself with turkey and watched some football, I start writing and addressing my holiday cards. Since I buy my cards the year before (after Christmas when the deals are good), I can get them in the mail at the beginning of December.
Confession: I dislike photo cards. I know. I'm like the only person in the world that doesn't like photo cards! Probably cause I don't like most photos of myself, I don't want to send my mug out to everyone. Perhaps if I had kids or pets I might be more interested. Anyhoo, I love plain ole holiday cards like these:
one can't be sent to everyone but Tai loves a good joke one for me to send out.
If I were going to buy holidays cards from Etsy, I would check out ChellyBug, Shop Hearts & Anchors, Faroche, Big Red Scraps, Silver Light Photo, and SimplySilverton.
