Christmas Cards On My Mind + a Minted Giveaway

I’ve always believed that once you do something three times in a row, it becomes a tradition. And so, as of this year, ordering holiday cards from Minted is officially an annual tradition for us! 

This isn’t our 4th year with Minted just because though. I return because their photo card options are totally my style (and truly get better year after year), the design process is easy, and the quality of the final product is out of this world. From their thick, signature paper to their top notch photo printing, every detail with Minted is exquisite. Plus, through Minted, I get to support small business artists because that’s exactly who Minted partners with. In fact, one of my top design picks this year is from an artist in Seattle! So close to home!


I know, I know! There is no doubt I’m enlarging and displaying THAT photo of my trio! A huge thank you to LCS Photography for capturing their unique personalities … Reid’s squinty-eyed grin will forever be a favorite of mine! I can’t wait to send their little grins far and wide this Christmas season! Actually, this photo is the only peek I’ve seen from our shoot so we’ll see what I actually land on when all is said and done. It wouldn’t surprise me if there is another gem hidden on Christine’s camera, she always manages to snap at just the right moment!

Back to Minted. The other giant, amazing, super fabulous perk of Minted is their address service. I log our family’s address book in a Numbers spreadsheet and I can upload that directly to Minted. For no extra charge they print all my addresses on the envelopes! It’s the best! This year you can also take part in Minted’s free concierge address book service. If you send them your addresses (in any format!) they’ll create your Minted Address Book for you. Seriously! Sending out holiday cards couldn’t be simpler. Or, more beautiful. Take a glance at just a few of the designs available for 2016 …


There are almost 1,000 options so give your favorite designs a Minted “heart” and narrow down what photo will be the perfect representation of your family this year! Trends say midnight blues, graphic black & white, and botanical wreaths are going to be top picks as well as the classic and chic foil-press in fancy metallics like gold, silver and rose gold. It’s a hard choice, for sure, my favorites log currently has 14 and I’m adding new ones every time I look!

Get ready to share your favorite and you could win $100 to shop at Minted!
