I always think holiday cards sound so easy to do, with the entire family looking fresh and relaxed for the season, and all in our friends and families’ mailboxes the first week of December. But then when the season is upon us, the fact that I thought it would be easy is laughable. Finding time to take a photo with everyone, settling on outfits (of course that can never be an afterthought for me), ordering the cards, and then addressing and sending them out is no small task at the busiest time of the year. But with our families spread out in all corners of the world and now that Sailor has grown so much since last year, it just felt necessary. I was excited to learn that Max was offering mini photo sessions at the Platform holiday bazaar, so it was the perfect opportunity to get this handled. 20 minutes, in and out, and it made for a fun family day out. We printed the cards with Artifact Uprising and they arrived within a couple of days so I could quickly get them addressed and sent out. I’m so happy with how they turned out. Maybe next year will be the year we don’t end up scrambling? Cautious toothy emoji.
