Yes, yes my friends. It’s that time. The holiday season is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to do with all those darling photos you’ve gathered throughout the year, or, recently received from your photographer from your fall shoot. One has to be normal looking, am I right?
Every year I stress over the holiday card waaaaaay more than needed. My husband thinks I am deranged but hey, your holiday card is a statement. And it can go so many different ways. You can lean silly, or natural, or traditional. My head starts to spin and it’s only October. Ok, ok, I started in September.
I am that girl. Deep breath in. I have to start with our vision. Yep, this is what I tell myself. About a holiday card.
I never promised you I was normal.
With moving into the new home and the boys being at an age where they can, for mere moments, actually sit still and actually smile like normal breathing humans I thought it might be a good year to lean traditional. Not all the way, of course, we do have two boys.
I still have a few options floating around in my head of exactly what I’m going to end up with but meanwhile, here are some of my favorites I have hearted over at Minted. Take a peak, if you’d like. I’ve used them every year and could not be happier with the quality and design options. The Minted envelope is one of a kind. They offer letterpress stationary as well for that lovely texture look (see #7 below) and this year, they even have glitter foil. Oh my heart!
And now the good stuff. Just like every year I’m offering a $250 credit towards Minted for your own holidays cards. Yippee!
