most holiday seasons i have the grand plan, i want to be super woman...fantastic home, gourmet food and just all around hostess with the mostess...

but while i can usually get the food thing done and get the flat fitted out with lights and other bells and whistles, sending out greeting cards usually totally slips thru the cracks...

so this year, i am hoping a few apps on my good ol iphone will help a sista out...

here are some of the apps (and notes from their download pages) that i am testing out (well in advance?) that will send the cards out for me (winning)!
