Christmas card ideas
These proud grandparents had a lot to share, and their Christmas card shows it. So many beautiful grandkids! And they managed to get them all together in one great photo, which we know isn’t easy to do. Kudos to them, both for the photos and for finding the perfect card to show them off. Janice, the industrious grandmother, explains how they managed to get everybody together.

“We scheduled a photographer to meet us during a family reunion in Park City, Utah. She photographed us in two nearby locations, first, using an old barn as a backdrop and second, in a horse pasture with the mountains as a backdrop. The hardest part has been keeping the photos “under wraps” until the Christmas cards were mailed, so it’s exciting to finally be able to unveil our wonderful family pictures.

Christmas card ideas
The Modern Storytelling Photo Christmas Cards appealed to this mom because she had a lot of news to share, from a new home and new schools for the kids, to future travel plans, to her wonderful news of a cancer-free prognosis in 2014–all summed up in one card. “I saw this newspaper format and knew it would be perfect,” she says. “I send a photo holiday card every year. Friends and family are always commenting on how creative our cards are and how great the photos are. This year I used AGriff Photography and LOVED the photos. I can’t wait to send these cards to our family and friends. We’ve been through a lot in the past 2 years and I want to share our joy and how well we are doing. This card was the perfect fit for us.”

Christmas card ideas
Talk about taking a theme and running with it! This family went all out to create a vintage theme for their Christmas cards, right down to where the family photo shoot took place. Says mom, Jennifer, “When we began thinking about ideas for a Christmas card in 2014, we really wanted to do something unique and very different than we had ever done before. We like our Christmas cards to tell a story, and so together as a family we try to think of fun ideas or themes. This year our 13-year-old daughter came up with the theme.

What it means to be Heirloom, what it means to be something unique

We had our first official snowfall of the winter this week, which means that my husband’s garden has gone from being officially “on its last legs” to officially “dead.”  It’s been six weeks since our last tomato and although by this time I’m tired of eating kale and brussel sprouts, it still makes me sad.  Five or six months (at best) until our next fresh greens, which translates to five or six months of grocery store produce.  Not that our grocery store and local food co-op don’t stock the good stuff.  It’s just that once you’ve eaten straight from the garden it’s a hard adjustment going back.

Andrew’s been taking the loss particularly hard.  We’ll talk while he’s cooking in the evening and without warning he’ll transition from chatting about how our days went to lamenting our lack of fresh apples and heirloom veggies.

I still don’t get his fixation with heirlooms, and it drives him crazy.

“What is there not to understand?” he asked the other night.  “You of all people should get this.”

I’m not a Foodie (though I’ve eaten enough meals to know his are better than average!), and I pointed this out.

“It’s not about being a Foodie or not being a Foodie.  It’s about having a love and a…respect, I suppose, for something unique.”

And he’s right.  I, of all people, should understand.

Christmas birth announcement idea
Is it a birth announcement? Or is it a Christmas card? It’s both, as this busy mother of three writes in the card’s greeting. “Life is busy, so consider this also an early Christmas card!” The family photos and new baby girl theme work beautifully with the pink and green striped border and linen-look background on our Stitched Stripes Baby Girl Announcements.
