Our christmas cards are done!!!!!!! Well, they are printed and in my hands. All that’s left to do is address and send. Yes, I am that ahead of schedule! Woo hoo!!!
I had a tough time trying to figure out what photos to use for our cards this year. Adelaide grows and changes so stinkin’ fast that the photos we took in August aren’t “up-to-date” enough for use on Christmas cards. Not to mention, they’re very summer-ey, and I have a fundamental issue with using summer images on winter cards.
My solution: spontaneous photo shoot in the backyard.
I threw a red sweater over her denim jumper and switched her pink chucks for black mary janes and VOILA! Holiday appropriate attire. I am lucky enough to own a 10 mega pixel digital point-and-shoot, so I knew that as long as I could find good lighting and manage to get the image in focus I could probably get an image or two worthy of Christmas cards.
I got eight! And lots more that are cute, but not card worthy. Check out my favorites in the new gallery. And no, I’m not telling which one(s) were used for our cards this year. You’ll just have to wait and see!
