In the words of those adorably, squeaky little chipmunks, “Christmas, Christmas time is near.” We passed the 100-day countdown mark about a week ago, and the days are going to start flying by as we head into the heart of the holiday season. If you like to send out personalized photo Christmas cards, now is a good time to start thinking about which ones you want and getting your order in before the mad rush begins.

Every year, I plan to have all of mine written up with a nice, personal message, addressed, stamped, and ready to go by the time Santa comes down the street in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Yet every year, I’m hustling to just sign my name quickly and get them out before Santa comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve. This year I’m really going to try to meet my goal. I’m going for the whole “less frazzled” season. I work as a manager at the local Pictures with Santa set, so every year seems to be a mad rush to get everything done because I have to do all my shopping and decorating between work hours.¬† This year, I’ll also be keeping up with my blog and writing at least 20 articles a month for one of my freelance writing clients to stay active with them, so I’m really going to need to stay organized for once.

Tiny Prints has a lot of really cute personalized photo Christmas cards, and the hardest part of the whole ordering process is deciding which one to get. I really like the idea of the circle card to the left because it can be hung on the tree. Every year, I get a lot of beautiful cards, but I never know how to display them. I usually end up taping them up all around a door frame. This year, in addition to actually following through with my plan to get cards done early, I would also really like to find a more creative and pretty way to display them. I’m open to ideas on this, if anyone has come up with something awesome, I’d love to hear about it.

Tiny Prints also has tons of traditionally shaped cards, of course. Their selection is huge this year, with over 430 choices. Like I said, the hardest part is picking your favorite. Luckily, the filters on the left hand side of the Christmas cards page make it a lot easier to narrow down your choices.
