‘Tis the Season


this post is being brought to you by Minted

Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Nor Cal.

Sunny. Warm. A perfect November afternoon.

The kids had a half day of school, and we spent the afternoon cleaning up the Halloween decorations in the front yard and raking leaves. There was even time to make a Thanksgiving table runner.  We spent the day enjoying all things fall.

Today Stella woke me with note…it included her Christmas list and the number 53. There are only 53 days until Christmas.

Just like that we have moved from fall to winter.

I used to be SO organized.  I used to have my shopping completed by the end of October, and cards written and addressed shortly thereafter.

USED to.

Lately, I seem to be a last minute shopper, and last year didn’t even send cards, and I LOVE Christmas cards.

To make up for my lack of card last year, I wanted to put a little more thought into my cards this year.

Minted has got the largest selection of designer photo cards I have found. They are all stunning.  I had so much fun browsing for our cards, but must have spent hours, and yes I do mean hours, looking at each and every design {all 591} . I think I have finally found “the” one

I LOVE the idea of an ornament card



I happen to love sending and receiving photo cards, but that may not be your cup of tea.  Minted also has hundreds of holiday greeting cards.


isn’t this reindeer gorgeous



With so many custom shapes, backing, liners, and labels, there is truly something for everyone.

I’m so excited to see our cards, and know that this years will be one I will keep forever.

Happy Shopping!
