There's only 45 days until Christmas (as of 8:00am, November 9, 2011)!
Yikes!! Lucky for me, I have been doing my Christmas shopping all year. See...

Thank you sales, consignment, birthdays, & craigslist!!
PS - We may be holding a few toys back for Charlotte's birthday.
I'm pretty sure I'm done with my daughters! I only have a few more gifts left to get, SWEET!
Now it's time for the Christmas cards.
For the past 15 years (or so), my family has been mailing out photo collages. At the beginning they were literal collages (you know, like taking actual 4x6 photos and trimming around the people and fitting them together) color copies and inserted into store bought Christmas cards. We did collages because between the 5 of us, there was so much to share about the year (graduations, proms, dances, sports, family trips, etc). Mom even included a caption to describe what each picture was.
Once I got married, I continued on the tradition of the photo collage (see *unfinished* collage to the left; I couldn't find my final copy), however things have gotten MUCH easier now.
Speaking of which... have you heard of Tiny prints?
I had the chance to review their 2011 card line and I am impressed! Here are a few of the photo collage cards that caught my eye (You can easily narrow your selection by photo count, card shape, etc along the left hand side).
If you can't pick your favorite pose :)
LOVE this one! Simple. Classic. Adorable!
Love the simplicity!
This is just so whimsical and fun!
Just gorgeous! I love the snow flakes!
I must say, these cards are so much easier than the original cut, paste, color-copy OR when I attempted to make the collages myself. I love how simple it is to add your pictures to the cards.
