It’s beginning to look a lot like Chr…hold up! We just got done with Thanksgiving. Let’s all take it down a notch. It’s not even December yet. We have plenty of time.
Er, sort of. Actually, no, no we don’t. We do not have plenty of time. Feel free to panic. and then feel free to release the Christmas Kraken!
Hey look, don’t worry about us. We’re totally ready! I mean, have we done anything except cut down the tree and put lights on it? No, no we haven’t. Have we added three kids to our house since last Christmas? Yes, yes we have. Hmm…guess I better get cracking.
I definitely haven’t picked out our Christmas Cards. Last year we used Minted and found the coolest card. I’m the worst about choosing just one photo so I always have to choose a card with several photo spots on it. Here’s what we chose last year.
Cute huh? Look, don’t ask me what the ‘May’ means at the bottom. This was my proof from last year and somehow the ‘may’ snuck into the proof. I was probably trying to say ‘May God bless you’ or something. Or, I fell asleep and nodded off the word MAY as my head hit the keyboard.
Minted has so many awesome Christmas card ideas. The absolute best thing about them? They have free recipient address printing. It looks so good! And, come on, it’s free.
What I absolutely love love love is this foil pressed art work. Squee! It would make a great gift.
What I will be taking advantage of is the ‘buy now, personalize later’ option. Since I absolutely excel at procrastination (yeah me!) I’m going to buy it now to lock in the Cyber Monday savings and then I can spend the rest of the season worrying about it.
Raise your hand if the word cyber makes you think of Doctor Who.
Yeah, you know it does. The word cyber is down right creepy. Look, don’t get on to me for going off the subject on my post about Christmas cards by mentioning how creepy the word cyber is. Last year at this time I wrote about how a sea cucumber threw up on me so really Doctor Who isn’t that off base. Be glad you don’t have to hear that story again.
I’m a sucker for these silhouettes. We’re getting some for the girl’s room.
And if you want to be totally swank, and who wouldn’t want to be, you can get this personalized wrapping paper. Yeah, you know the in-laws would love it.
Tree? Check. Anything else Christmas related? Definitely not a check. Good thing it’s Cyber Monday!
Oooh! And he could help me hand the ornaments high on the tree and help us hang the lights outside. Look at all those arms!
That’s it. I’m asking Santa for a Kraken for Christmas.
