If you make your holiday cards when do you start?

I usually start in the summer, looking for ideas, doing mock ups and ordering supplies. Most of the work gets done in the fall. I used to go to a crop every October and that was a great project to do there - didn't require a lot of attention so I could chat and I knew exactly what to pack. No plans for a crop this year, so I'm going to have to set aside some time to work on them.

My cards are very photo-centric, so I have to wait until I have the photo(s), taken specifically for the cards. When the boys were little I wanted a very recent photo, so I'd often take the photo in November and then make the cards once I got the photos back. Now the boys don't change quite so quickly, so the photo could be a few months old and it wouldn't matter.
I usually start looking for ideas over the summer, but don't start actually making anything until November or so. It usually means a few late nights at the beginning of my winter break, but I've always had them in everyone's mailboxes by Christmas Eve!

Our cards are photo-centric too. So, I usually wait until after Thanksgiving because that's when we get the best family shots. Or, we have the tree up and some great photos in front of that.

I have been thinking about this as well! I'm going to go to Phoenix for Thanksgiving (for my husband's family side) then on to Las Vegas for a week for our 30th Anniversary-- this has sent me into a frenzie- because I usually put up the tree on Black Friday and do 1/2 my shopping, on black Friday and then the next weekend my Christmas cards-- and into the next weekend as needed.
This year I really want to have my shopping DONE (mostly) and my cards ready--I usually print a Holiday letter- and I"ll be sure and have most of that done with last minute pictures so I can print/fold and send
I have the Iris folding kit from Anna Griffin from last years buy-- I am thinking of getting going on that and making them my cards this year....

I'm planning to start my cards in the middle of October. I'll be making about 40 so that's usually ok. I'm the worst at getting them in the mail when they are done! This year I have a plan. I'll pop them in the pile of work mail that my bookkeeper takes when she does the office work!
