The rabbit doesn't always win the race! Sure your mantel may be filled with beautiful cards picturing smiling children wishing you a happy holiday, but just because you didn't get around to ordering your family's cards before Christmas, doesn't mean you've lost the race! A new tradition — sending New Year's cards — is gaining momentum and procrastinating mamas are loving it!
I spoke with Meg Bohnert, Shutterfly’s card stylist, and learned that the sending of New Year's cards is growing in popularity. She said, "New Year's is a time to start fresh and wish family and friends well — it's an optimistic time for many, and they want to express that in their holiday card and greeting." As far as when to send them out so recipients don't think Mom was just late in stamping her holiday cards, Meg said, "If you want to send out a New Year's card and make it look intentional, you should have the greeting 'Happy New Year' in your message to friends and family and send it after Christmas."
Take a look at some of the New Year's cards catching my eye right now, and don't worry; I won't think you're late if you start sending them out now!
