Family Christmas Card Ideas
I guess it isn’t surprising that family Christmas cards are really important to me. Even though I struggle to come up with family Christmas card ideas, I love sending and receiving cards every year! I’ve been sending cards every Christmas of our married lives…next Christmas will mark the 30th! The list has changed over the years and new friends have been added. I used to meticulously make each and every card myself by hand, but like the saying goes, “the shoemakers children never have shoes.” As eWillow.com has grown, I’ve spent tons of time creating cards for others and although I still make our cards, they certainly aren’t as elaborate or as creative as they used to be. But I guess the point is that I still send our family Christmas card every year, and I hope you send cards, too. Isn’t it fun to go to the mailbox every day this time of year and see hand-addressed envelopes? I love it!
Here are some of our Christmas cards from over the years.
We didn’t start doing a picture every year until Adrienne came along. The first year, she was the only one in the picture, and the year after that is when we started including a family picture every year. It has become so much easier over the years to take the picture. It used to be the worst day of the year with all of the chaos, but as I look back on these family Christmas cards from over the years, I’m glad we never broke with tradition.
And with that, I’ll now go and have a panic attack and obsess over finding our cards from the missing years. Where did I put them?!
(Send me an email or leave a comment to put in your order for your cards for next year! I start making them in the summer, hence the saying, “Christmas in July.” Now I know what it means! 🙂
