I did the Snapfish thing too and was so happy not to have to worry about standing in line at the kiosk to print them or buying envelopes. Yeah. And I got my stamps tonight, the holiday version, so tomorrow they can fly away.  :D

If anybody still needs to get their cards printed, PM me. I just got the friends and family link to the company I used last year, which is great quality for personalized cards and cheap with my link

Jeff came home with the mail yesterday and Kelsey and I pounced on him.  There was mail flying everywhere as we searched.  there was one card from DaneInsane.  Kelsey and I fought over who was going to open it.

Kelsey won.   ;D

Okay people...put away the glue sticks!!  Upload a picture to snapfish.com, select a card, and have those suckers printed!!  It really isn't too bad and they run all sorts of special deals.


Oh why didn't I read this before I started cutting?  Actually, I was going to use a picture of Harley but he doesn't photograph well - no eyes and all black body kind of looks like a sad blob.  So I bought cards and will include a blob like photo of Harley.

Chanukah starts Tuesday so I'm buying and wrapping and my darling kids have so much going on that I bring the cards with me everywhere in hopes of getting a few done!!

If worse comes to worse I can do them at work on Monday...oops I mean on my lunch hour at work

Looking so forward to the happy mailbox!!

HEHE We celebrated both holidays in my house so we'd wrap each gift half in hannukah paper and half in christmas paper. It cut out buying double gifts for everyone and made both sides of the family happy we were celebrating "their" holiday. We're going to have dinner all together (those that are still here anyways) on Wednedsay.

As far as the cards: I took mine with me everywhere and finally had to say "No one bother me. I'm writing cards in the living room so unless you want to get put to work, find somewhere else to be!"

Ah yes.  The black dog blob.  I'm quite familiar with it.  You can go even further and do what I tend to do - take a picture of the blob on a dark blue carpet in front of a dishwasher with a black front - and then wonder why you can't seem to get a decent picture of your dog.  LOL!

That's her favorite spot to lay, so most of her cute facials and positions are there.  It's either try to get  a clear shot of something cute or no pic at all.

LMAO I do the same thing with a red dog and reddish cabinets. "Why isn't he showing up well?!" Ugh  ::)

I wonder.  My mother is going to the States tomorrow.  If she mails them from the U.S. would she be able to use regular U.S. Stamps?  Even with a Canadian return address on them???  Hmmmmmmm....

I don't know who is enjoying this more me or my husband.  At this rate I'll have him thinking of another big paw by next year at this time.  He's loving the pictures of the pups as I am.  Thanks everyone !  I got my SS out yesterday and whoever suggested the reciepient's (sp and I'm not looking it up) address as a return .. thanks !  Take good care out there everyone and watch out for those gumpy mall shoppers .. OUCH

I got all of mine in the mail today!!!  I'm s proud of myself, this is the first time EVER that I've said "I'm sending out Christmas Cards" and actually done it!!  I'm apologising right now to those of you who will not be able to read my hand writing, I was enjoying some Christmas Cheer while writing them all out!  :D  I also got my SS out today as well.  But I think I might have botched on the rules of that one... :-[  I put a return address on it, and signed the to/from tags on the gifts... :-[  whoopsy.  So sorry to whomever receives from Naja, Moo and I.  I'm terrible for keeping secrets.
