Christmas Cards & the New Do

Over Thanksgiving I asked my sister-in-law to take a few pictures of our family.  Of course I didn't plan the outfits to co-ordinate so I had to make the images black and white to avoid looking busy.  Choosing Christmas cards is never easy for me, but Personalized Greeting Cards from Tiny Prints  makes it a little easier.  You can choose the style and colors, and upload the photo in no time.  I must have had 15 favorites.


Here is the one I finally settled on.  Now for the Christmas shopping...


And finally, here is the new do.  Not a major change, but I am happy with the length.  Maybe next time I will go a little shorter in the back to look a little more like Gwenyth

  6. Your card looks really great Rene! Quite the handsome family you have. I'll also be doing Tiny Prints for our cards as well (I think). I had my haired styled very similar to yours and I really liked it. Then I went a lot shorter and now I'm itching to grow it out again.

  23. I just want to know what face cream you use? You are glowing and hardly look old enough to be the Mother of these handsome children.

  25. Very pretty do, Rene. I also do like b&w pics as one notices the smaller details more without color.
