Christmas Cards: Paula's Easy Action Plan

If you have struggled with meeting your goal of sending out Christmas or Holiday cards this year, now is the time to lay out an action plan. I've broken down the steps for you. Do one or two steps a day.
  1. Locate the cards/envelopes you will be sending out. Using a photo card? Decide on the picture you would like to use. Even if you will be getting prints made at a later date, you can still complete steps 2-6 in the meanwhile.
  2. Compile your list.

  3. Determine the date you will be putting the cards in the mail.

  4. Create a family letter if you will be including one.
  5. Address envelopes
  6. Buy stamps
  7. Stamp and send the cards out by your target date.

Or, try something new this year. Send Out Cards is a fantastic service that allows you to send a printed greeting card with your message in Less than 60 Seconds. It's super easy!

  1. Choose your card

  2. Write your message

  3. Click send

  4. Send Out Cards prints it, stuffs it and mails it, all for less than a greeting card at the store. Interested? Want to give it a try? Learn how you can set up your free gift account with Send Out Cards today.

How funny that I happened to read this post today because I awoke at 3:00 am this morning panicking over the fact that we need to get a family picture done for our Christmas cards!!!! I can't believe it's already that time to start thinking about it!!

*sigh* - I'm a horrible wife and mother. I haven't sent out Christmas cards in years. Every year I think about it, but then I just don't do it. (hangs head in shame)

Creative Junkie,
There is no rule that you have to send out Christmas cards! It's OK not to send them, really.
