If you’re like one of the gazillions of people that got swamped with all the holiday craziness this month and didn’t quite get to that “Send out Christmas Cards” line item on your to-do list, you’re definitely not alone! I was talking to some of my friends about this recently, and every single one of us had noticed a major scale-back in the holiday mailbox greetings this year, which we concluded was probably due in part to 2 things: 1) cutbacks in holiday budgets, and 2) the fact that Christmas was so close to Thanksgiving this year, which meant it crept up on us quicker than usual.
Some good news though – if you still want to send out holiday well-wishes, it’s really not too late… because you can always opt for a “Happy New Year” message, which is actually a great way to kick off the new year on a positive note! The New Year’s photo card, foldover note, and address label pictured above are part of the “Sparkling Start” collection from Polka Dot Design. And more good news: Polka Dot is offering HWTM readers 20% off with the promo code “HWTM1208″! (Polka Dot’s digital photo cards only take 1-2 business days to process and start at $1.19 each.)
