I hope you all had a great weekend! Did anyone decorate their house for Christmas? I know that was the plan for a few friends of mine but I am holding out. I always wait until after Thanksgiving…so this upcoming Saturday and Sunday will be Christmas extravaganza time at our house!
The start of the holiday season also signifies that time of year when we get to spread cheer to all our family and friends. Soon, our mailboxes will be flooded with Christmas cards and party invitations…I get excited to check our mail every day! With that being said, I haven’t even picked our cards out, yet, so I guess I need to get on that!
I just asked Lee, this past weekend, what our plans were for our Christmas cards. We normally do photo cards and I planned to do the same this year…I just like them too much! It’s always fun to drag our pups with us somewhere and make someone try to get a photo of us…even though, after our little shoot is over, we end up with one picture that might work and 1,000 pictures that look like this…
…someday, I’m just going to put one of these on our card. We like to keep it real.
This year, I am turning to Minted.com when the time comes to order our cards. I love their products and the idea behind their company – they use designs from independent artists in an attempt to share their creativity so that they can gain exposure and build their businesses. They, also, spread the love by donating a portion of their proceeds from works of art to Every Mother Counts, which is an organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. Beautiful products to choose from and beautiful ways to support others; sounds like a win-win!
Minted.com has their new holiday collection out and they have some awesomely festive designs! They have so many different ways to display your favorite photos, they have fun fonts, colors, and textures to choose from, they have unique card shapes, and, what I love the most, they have new foil-pressed accents that add some shine to your greetings!
Today, I want to share some of my favorites with you and, maybe, you guys can help me choose by letting me know which ones you like? Because I’m, like, reeeeeally bad at making decisions.
Our Favorite Time
Merry Christmas Happy Year
…and there are SO many more! I know I’m going to have the hardest time deciding!
Also, Minted.com offers art prints and gifts for the home and I have my eye on two foil-stamped art pieces that are from a collection called “Constellations.” I would love to get the constellation prints for my sign and Lee’s sign and hang them in our bedroom! They also offer stationary like business cards, thank you cards, notebooks, and planners. I can’t say enough about the designs and the variety of products that you can find! Check them out and make sure to pop in and see them on November 30 for a big Cyber Monday promotion!
I know I’ll be on their site, again, soon, so I can upload the one picture that we get out of the million we try to take with our pups for our Christmas card!
