It seems to be a less common practice every year, but I always send out Christmas cards and I look forward to the holiday season because I know that at least some of our friends and family will also be sending cards. Any card is appreciated, but I particularly look forward to the homemade or photo cards to see how each family is changing and growing as the years go by. This year I was given the opportunity to create double sided 5x7 holiday greeting cards from MailPix, which are the best Read more [...]
