It's Not Too Early - Is It?Wednesday, November 05, 2008
---I knew I wouldn't be able to put any new posts up with the new baby home, so I did a few before the new baby came, using Blogger's feature to publish posts automatically for a date in the future. ((Just so you aren't wondering how I am able to do this with a newborn!))---
A couple of weeks ago, the holiday catalogs for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago came in on the same day - and I couldn't wait to see what holiday cards they were featuring this year.
Last year, I sent out letterpress holiday cards, and this year, thanks to all the beautiful pop-ups in both catalogs, I think I want to order 3-D cards:
I love almost all of Robert Sabuda's things - he makes all those great pop-up books and these notecards with pop-up cakes. On his website, he even has a section on making home-made pop-ups. Can't wait for the boys to get big enough so we can try some of those!
If you order cards through Hallmark, they even have a service available to mail cards out to your recipients on your behalf - although that seems a little like cheating, right!? Plus there's no way to add a little personalized, handwritten message inside.
I think I need to go ahead and get my pop-ups on order.
