My Holiday Cards

It took me a little while to pick out my holiday cards. Originally I wanted to do a photo card; I don’t have a significant other and I thought sending a card with just my picture on it might be weird. Plus I needed to order my cards early so I could send them out for the Christmas Card Exchange.

In the end, the card I chose was originally designed to include photos, but I removed the stock photos and thought it still made for a pretty card. I ordered my cards through Zazzle and it was my first time using their site. It was pretty easy to customize my cards and the whole process was pretty quick- I received my cards less than a week after I ordered them!

Did you guys have a good long weekend? Mine was pretty relaxing and it was great to have a little break. I spent Thursday baking up a storm for Thanksgiving, then the rest of the weekend was pretty quiet with lots of tidying up around the house, knitting, reading, and watching movies on Netflix. Did you score any great Black Friday deals? I did some pre-Black Friday shopping on Wednesday and then I didn’t buy anything else. Tell me what you bought!

    • Thank you Merritt! I’m so in love with that Anthro mug- I’m considering getting a second one!

  • The cards are so cute!

  • Ah I love these! You can’t ever go wrong with white and gold. I’ve never really thought of sending out holiday cards on my own but you’ve made me think otherwise…it would be nice to check in with a note to family and friends who I don’t get to see very much anymore!

    • Thank you Jackie! I totally agree- I love sending little handwritten notes anyway and what better excuse to do so than the holidays? :)

  • Jenmarie

    I love your choice of cards! They are elegant and super unique. Whoever is receiving these will keep them forever, I’m sure! :)

    • Thank you Jenmarie! They’re very different from previous years but I do like the simplicity :)

    I have spent the past 3 days searching for holiday cards this year and thank goodness I found your post! I ordered these with rush delivery today! Thank you for sharing this great find. I am also single, and love sending out holiday cards, but it’s always a struggle to find ones that aren’t awkward as a singleton. :) Love these!

    • Hi Michelle, I’m so thrilled I could be of some help! Glad to know that I’m not the only one in that boat :)

      I hope your cards arrive very quickly and that you love them when they do :) Happy Holidays!

  • Gorgeous! I need to pick my holiday cards :)

    • Thank you Kim! Can’t wait to see what you pick out :)
