Then another year I did actually print cards and mailed them out, ONLY because I found a coupon for 100 free cards AND free shipping (lemme know if you find any of those this year!).
Then one year I had them printed from Costco and only mailed about 5 of them...ended up throwing about 100 cards in the mail. So sad to see my family's faces being dumped so wastefully into the recycle bin.

SOooo...this year I'm vowing to make no more excuses. We WILL have a nice letter. We WILL have a photo card. I WILL have them printed by Thanksgiving and mailed by December 4th (random day I chose...gives those receiving enough time to get my card and reply address in case they missed sending me a card with all our address changes).
I'm still cheap and probably won't fork out $.50 per card (or even $.25/card). I'll just create my own and have it printed from Costco or some online place (wherever I can find the best deal...cut me some slack! Stamps are expensive!).

Are your Christmas cards ready? Where are you having them printed? Any amazing deals out there right now?
