Xmas Cards?


I have been busy working on my Christmas Cards today. What better to think about while doing mindless work? My Blog!!! I was curious how many people send out Christmas Cards?
Am I the only one sitting here writting address after address?
How many do people usually send out???
Does anyone send out ecards instead?
Let me know people and please tell me someone out there is feeling the penmanship hand ache as well!

I send Christmas cards and had every intention of doing mine today, but did not get to them. I send about 40 or so and get about that many as well. I love to send them and recieve them. I need to get on mine by no later than this weekend. Take care and see ya.

Yes, I send out Christmas Cards. & Yes, I hand write them! (I feel your pain!)
I send out about 85! I know a ton, but we both have big families & we've moved a ton & have at least a few friends we made from every move. So, we send out a ton.
My sister in law did an ecard last year. I just love getting cards in the mail & seeing pictures of everyone!
I LOVE Christmas Cards!!

I have good intentions to send out Christmas cards every year. Every year about December 23rd I remember that I haven't done it. I stink.

We send out about 50, but I cheat - the letter is typed, as are the address labels (putting all my addresses in Outlook and setting up the mail merge on my computer was well worth the 'me' time sacrified to do it!) I do sign our names and write little notes in some of the cards. Every year I intend to make things a little easier, but I get so much joy from the cards that we receive that I can't help but hope that others feel the same way and are glad to get ours.

I do them too. I send out about 35 or so. I usually do a picture and a letter. I think I write a letter more for me than anyone who I send it too. It gives me a chance to rethink all the good stuff our family did this year.
I prefer getting cards in the mail rather than an e-card. It seems a little more personal. I would rahter get an e-card than nothing though.

I send out Christmas cards and I make them myself (I started in July this year though haha). I usually only send out about 25 though, i can't imagine 100+ - eek!

I send out cards, I ordered 50 this year, but I have a stash for those that might have been forgotten or ones that I send in a pitty kinda way. You know if they send me one then I feel bad if I didn't send them one originally. So yeah, I have spares for those types of situations!

I send out about 25 cards and I hand write them. However last year I didn't get them done, I suck.

Oh, you're a good soul doing all that writing, yikes! (and with four kids and a sick baby to boot!) I do send Christmas cards, and try to include update notes for family and friends that we don't see much. I haven't even started mine yet, ugh. Usually send out about 50.

Ok, so I am NOT crazy enough to hand write 100 cards- nope I cheat- photocards. It's my way of making sure everyone gets an updated picture of the kids each year. I have decided not to do a Xmas letter this year, I just don't have the time and creativity for it. I have to be in the mood, and I just don't feel it this year.
