This Is Where You Belong (At Christmas)

One of my favorite aspects of the holiday season, amid all of the flurry, is the fact that getting the mail becomes a treat again. Each day you wonder what surprises will await you in the mailbox. You remember the stories and triumphs of each family as you gaze at their cards. You relive the cherished memories you've experienced together as you open the envelope. You get excited about the possibilities of the new adventures to come with these special loved ones in your life. It always brings a smile to my face when we display the treasured greetings from our friends and family in a special spot. Holiday cards are such a central part of the season for me.

It is no secret we adore Minted around here. Since today is Black Friday (what, you didn't know? ;)
I thought it would be a wonderful day to share some of my favorites from them. Today they are offering a special of 20% off holiday card and photo art gift orders of $150 or more, and 15% off $100 or more. We have used Minted for our Christmas cards for the last few years and they keep us coming back for more! The designs are simply fabulous! And the quality is impeccable.

Here are a few of my favorites! :)

I love the idea of ornament cards for a fun way to change things up a bit! If you've never done this type of card before it could be something new to try this year!

This swanky snowflake design is one of my favorites! I love the shape and the combination of black and white and gold.

Minted also offers a variety of real foil pressed cards for some added glam to your greetings!

I love the simplicity of the gold Merry on this one. Anything metallic is fine by me!

Another creative idea for your holiday card is to create a mini book and include a little summary of your year.

This wintry mix holiday mini book instantly makes me feel warm and cozy. How darling is the mix of the creatures with the snowflakes and trees? Love it.

A few years ago when our Christmas time was so chaotic (I was so sick with my gallbladder issues and we were looking for a new house!) we went with a New Years card. We were also able to send them out with our new address. Deciding ahead of time that we would send out a New Years card for a change that year was a huge stress off my shoulders during a crazy time in our lives. I think this option is a wonderful one to have!

The lettering on this design is perfect for bringing in a fresh new start!

I still haven't quite decided on the design of our cards this year. Tell me some of your favorites from Minted? I would love to see them! :)

Happy Black Friday!
