holiday salutations


The holiday cards are in the mail (above is the front of the card we sent to our families), the shopping is done, the tree is up (our first real tree!), plenty of snow in Maine is right on cue and, aside from a pesky cold that won't go away, I'm ready for Santa to visit!

Thank you so much for the great holiday cards that have been cramming my mailbox for the last few weeks. It's so fun to see how many of my clients used an emilie inc. wedding or portrait image (and an extra special thanks to those who credited emilie inc. too!).

For the first time, I did not include a traditional year-end letter in my holiday cards. In a modest move to be more green, I thought it would be best to save on paper since you all follow my every move on this blog anyway (Anyone else feel a tad guilty sending cards this year? I hope it's not too long before a more environmentally-friendly way of sending holiday cheer is en vogue. Maybe just postcards? Or something a bit more personal than e-cards?)!

I did, however, take my own advice from the blog last year and order some personalized stamps. Too cute!

It's a tall order, but I'm going to do my best to take some time away from the computer for a few days next week to visit with family and friends and soak up the spirit of the season. If you are able, I encourage you all to do the same.

Hugs, happiness and health to all! Cheers!


  1. ps- Sorry that those little screwdriver icons are scattered about the blog right now. Apparently it's a big within Blogger and they are looking to get it fixed.

  2. Too cute card and stamps! Adorable! And great advice too. Peace+Happiness

    I loved your card, Em! And thank you for this post, which gave me a new excuse for not sending cards myself: I was being environmentally conscious. (Okay, fine, I was being lazy, but the other excuse sounds better.)
