Christmas Cards

Thanks to Minted and their fantastic Holiday Photo Cards, I am on a roll! My Christmas cards are ordered, and have already arrived! And we’re talking before Thanksgiving even got here, people! Do you understand how crazy that is? I’ve written this date down, because never have I been ahead when it comes to Christmas cards. I’m usually ordering them at the last minute… and there were several years when I had to send out “Happy New Year” cards because I just couldn’t get it together before Christmas. But not this year! No siree. They are already here, waiting to be addressed, and they’ll go out right after my Christmas tree goes up. (Which is always the day after Thanksgiving.) I can’t wait!

Want to join me in my excitement, and get your own household ready for the holiday season? Head on over to the Minted website and check out all of the fantastic holiday photo cards they have available. But, let me warn you, their website is highly addictive. I spent a good hour plugging my family portraits into different cards to see how they would look. And then I ended up loving them all.

I narrowed my choices down to 10. And then 5. And then 2. Finally, after polling my husband, and all seven of our children, I decided to go with the photo card you see above. But, I really liked my second choice too. You can see it here:

I love the simplicity of both card styles, and I love how easy it was to create a custom card for my family. Once I finally settled on the design, it took me less than 10 minutes to customize the card, add it to my cart, and place the order. I love when websites make ordering easy, and Minted absolutely does!

I had the option to have a proof shipped to me, but I opted not to. I had edited the photos myself, and triple checked spelling and the text on the cards, so I didn’t feel I needed a proof.

I placed my order on Saturday, November 16th, and the cards were delivered to me on Wednesday, November 20th. (And that was with FedEx Ground shipping, the slowest option for shipping.) I am REALLY impressed.

As soon as I got over the shock of receiving the cards so quickly, I opened the box to discover my cards beautifully and safely packaged. The cards were sealed in plastic wrap, and there was lots of bubble wrap in the box to keep them protected. Everything arrived in perfect condition, as if I had picked them up straight from the printing department myself.

The cards are a beautiful quality as well. I can’t wait to mail these out to all our friends and loved ones. The paper is thing, but not flimsy, the colors are beautiful, and everything looks perfect. I can’t express enough how much I love these cards. The envelopes are thick and perfect for sending out these cards. Overall, I am beyond impressed with the quality, the service, and my entire experience with Minted.

I hope that you will check out all of the holiday photo card options available on the Minted website. Whatever holiday you celebrate this year, I’m sure they have a card just for you. And, if you’re expecting a new bundle of joy, celebrating an engagement, planning a wedding, or have another special event coming up, Minted will have the perfect card just waiting for you to customize.

Thank you, Minted, for helping me get my Christmas cards out early this year. I can’t wait to show them off!

25 Free Mommy Cards from Minted

I am all about Mommy Cards. I think they are an excellent resource for any mom blogger to have. Mommy Cards are a great way to leave your contact information {and your blog address!} in the hands of potential readers, playdate mates for your kids, and friends.

mommy cardsNormally, I don’t leave the house without my Mommy Cards, but since I’m being honest, I’ve got to admit: I still haven’t updated mine since I switched blogs and Gage was born. (Gasp!) Shameful, I know. So I went to a huge event (the #DisneySocial) without a single Mommy Card on me.

I recently found out about Minted, and they have got some absolutely beautiful Mommy Cards. They’re fun and unique, and if you opt to get their tiny little logo on the back of your Mommy Cards, you can get 25 for free – or take $30 off your order. It’s a fantastic deal, and it’s a great way to try out Mommy Cards for yourself and see how they work for you.

Now, you do have to pay shipping, and it’s around $8. but, $8 for 25 professionally designed Mommy Cards is really a small price to pay.

If you’re hesitant about how useful Mommy Cards can be for you and your blog, head over to Minted, grab 25 free cards and test them out for yourself.

You can bet I’m getting in on this deal!
