I'm making a list....

by Linda
Did you gasp at today's photo? (I thought I heard a scream!)

It's no secret that "that" season is quickly approaching. My 7 yo grand has been inquiring (daily) if I have seen anything suspicious, anything that looks out of place or red. (the color of the dress on her elf-on-the-shelf)


I apologize for springing a Holiday photo on you this early! Now that you've recovered from the sight of it, I have a question for you...

Do you have your Holiday cards selected?


Have you selected the photo you want to use and ordered your Holiday cards for this season?


Have you taken the photo you want to use and ordered your Holiday cards for this season?

(I know too many questions)

If you feel overwhelmed at the thought of trying to make time to fit this in an already over scheduled season, just browse your Holiday photos from years past. Send it to your favorite photo printer or print your own.

Or select a box of cards from one of the millions of displays at every store. (I apologize for that suggestion)

Once you have your selections made and printed (or almost printed!) we invite you to join us in a Holiday Card exchange!

Interested? Here's all you have to do:

Starting today, email me the following (

your name
your mailing address
your email address (I promise not to spam you or publish your email address)

I will collect this information through the end of the month-November 30.
I will compile a list and email the list to you the first week of December, no later than December 6.

Then it's your turn again! Send out your Holiday Cards to everyone on the list and wait for your mailbox to fill with Holiday cheer!

Easy peasy! And fun!

All types of Holiday and non-Holiday cards are welcome! It's a simple way to say hello put a smile on someones face! There's just something about getting real, paper mail!


Did you know that you don't have to be on Instagram or have an iPhone to join our Focus on Phoneography flickr group? That's right! Share your "Gratitude" phone shots there too! Or show us a new technique you have learned using your phone as your camera!

I do love this idea. I will have to look through my images and see what I can come up with.

Oh, Linda! This is such a great idea! I need to first recover "ALL" my photos from my mac that unfortunately went down…on my way to the Apple Store! I love the thought of sending and receiving some beautiful cards and " In the mail box" is so exciting and fun. Count me in :)

This was so much fun last year and I'm excited we are doing it again! In this day and age of everything being digital, it is wonderful to receive real mail! Thanks for organizing this, Linda. Should be fun!

I'm hoping to get my act together so I can participate this year, so fun, and love your card...such an old fashioned feel to it!

ooooh! I love that photo, Linda! And, yes, the card swap was so much fun last year, I'm glad we're going to do it again. Some of the FOL family live outside the US and I always love getting international mail. I hope a lot of you will join in.
