Our Holiday Cards
I've been sending holiday cards for years and years but never made my own. When the baby was born I was inspired to choose my favorite personal photo from the year and make a card to send to our family and friends. This has become one of my favorite traditions of the season. I am notoriously indecisive so choosing a favorite is rarely easy but the process has become so much fun for my husband and me. I usually put together a top five and then we pick our favorite of the favorites together. This year we chose a photo of Lucia fearlessly walking toward the ocean last summer. She fell in love with the beach this year and I love that the photo really shows her independent spirit and adventurous personality.
For the last two years I've been making my cards at Pinhole Press and if you follow this blog you probably know how much I love their products. The holiday cards are no exception. The paper quality is so thick (my favorite) and super fancy and I love the design on the back of the card we chose. We also made our address labels with them. Instead of using a family photo I used one from my archive of New York photos - I'm very proud of this picture that has done so well in a few shows this year and I think it looks so cool on the label.
Pinhole Press is offering Free Shipping through December 15th on all their products.
I've made so many things with them over the last year (like this, this, this and this) and recommend them to clients all the time.
