This is just in case you didn't get my card in the mail this year. I swear I sent it!! I would suggest hunting down your mail carrier and asking him/her what happened to it. Cuz I sent it. I really did.
I will say this is my easiest card I've done in a looooong time. It helps to start with a gorgeous picture and work from there (thanks to my SIL, Chrissi!). Oh how I love having a professional photographer in the family.
As for the cards I received.... here was my mirror about 9 days into December....
And here it is now....
What in the feelin' the love is going on around here??? LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas cards! I ignore the mailman all year until Christmas card time and then he's my BFF. We are now back to the ignoring stage. I hope he doesn't care/notice.
I'm also going to do a little project this year. Since I don't scrapbook anymore (haven't done anything for the past 3+ years...poor Beebs has no baby book), I've decided I need to do SOMETHING to keep track of the family's comings and goings and tidbits. Here is what I've decided.... I'm going to take at least ONE picture every day. Some days I'll take tons just because something is going on (but only pick one photo each day) and other days I'll take only one picture specifically for this project. I have a folder called "A YEAR IN PHOTOS" and then, within that folder, I have a folder for each month. Then, the file name I save the pictures under will be the date were taken. For example "1_3_10." Finally, I have a Word document open on my desktop at all times called "A YEAR IN PHOTOS" where I will write a little blurb about each photo under the date it was taken. HOPEFULLY at the end of the year I can upload all the pictures to Snapfish (or whatever) easily, cut & paste the text I already have written and make a fun photo book for each year.
I can do this.
I'm hoping to get some funny random pics I would never take otherwise in there along with some posed ones to document how the kids have grown. I guarantee I'll have a few of the kids sleeping because I will have forgotten to take a picture until after they go to bed but that's all part of the fun, right?
I promise I won't bore you with lame "Photo of the Day!" posts but here are a couple I've taken thus far as examples...
January 3rd: Beebs' s First Day of Primary!!
January 5th: The Poopy Dog Looks Cute So I Got the Camera
I also wanna recommit to Blogspot. I've been accused of not doing so well as I've tried two-timing Blogger and FaceBook. I don't want to break up with either of them so I'm going to try to make each one feel special. Because I'm in love with them both. They both complete me.
Here's to a better documented 2010!
