Stuff the Envelopes and Deck the Halls with Mpix

I try to respect the turkey, but if I can get a bulk of the Christmas done early you'd better believe I will.

When I was able to cross off holiday cards, holiday thank yous, and an update on family photos, all before Thanksgiving, I was pret-ty pleased.
Way back in September we had family photos taken, and as soon as I got them back I could not wait to dive into creating our holiday card.

This year, while selecting a card I knew I wanted something modern, clean, and simple. Our photos were all taken at various colorful locations, so I needed a card design that would showcase our photos, not steal the show.

Mpix came through huge. There were limitless choices that fit my bill. I mocked up at least a half a dozen different cards. The hardest part of the holiday card process wasn't finding an Mpix card design, it was selecting just one.

While I'm chomping at the bit for a full reveal of our Mpix holiday card, a sneak peek will have to do for now.

Next on my checklist of must-haves for paper goods was a Thank You. One of my favorite family photo "hacks" is utilizing a photo I love (but don't use on the holiday card) and turning it into a Thank You. I've mentioned this in a few different places already, but I love the idea so much I had to share it here, too.
Again, Mpix nailed the Thank You designs, and it was another difficult decision narrowing down my choices to just one. As the kids (or Scott and myself) receive gifts throughout the holidays we'll snag one of these cards, write a personal note on the blank backside, and drop it in the mail. Viola! Another fun use for family photos.

Last, but most certainly not least, was the print made from our family pics. I've been making a conscious effort to print a photo from our photog session rather than just let them sit on my hard drive. Mpix offered a variety of print options: canvas, metal, acrylic, wood... We've never opted for an acrylic print, so I figured we'd give it a go.
I. LOVE. IT. It is the coolest print I think we've ever had. So clean and sleek. It even comes with a handy little level, which will save a lot of arguments and time in this house.
