One. Christmas Cards…A Paper Junkie’s Fascination
I finally pulled the trigger on our holiday cards last night. Please tell me I am not the only one who goes CRAZY in anticipation of attempting to try to find the perfect card each year??? Yes, I scour high and low but always return to my favorite online card shop, Minted, to order because I know the quality is superior, the cardstock is thick (a must in my book), and the turnaround time is always super fast…and no, they are not paying me to say this. Here are just a sampling of a few that caught my eye this year (but sadly, not the “chosen” one…stay tuned for ours once they are mailed out)
Interested in seeing our family cards from years’ past? Check out my posts from 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.
Saturday mornings at my house are much happier when this lady has a mimosa or two…and I saw this the other day and wondered how in the world I never thought to do this before. Hello happy happy day! **and perfect for holiday celebrations, events, and get togethers, too
Five. Weekend Family Fun
This weekend, I have vowed not to work, not to do the unnecessary things that take over our day, and to enjoy a carefree weekend with my little family. These event-free weekends are few and far between, especially with the coming holidays, so we will be decking the halls in the house putting up all our Christmas decor, snuggling up with some popcorn and hot chocolate watching our favorite holiday movies, and enjoying being in our pajamas…sometimes the simplest of days make for the most memorable!
My friend literally had me over for wine to help her choose her christmas card. LOL
Poor Carson!!!! I cannot WAIT to see your Christmas cards…I know they will be just perfect!! And those ice cubes…DUH! What a perfect way to start a day 😉
Those cards are all beautiful, I bet the ones you picked are stunning. I decided that after we get married next year christmas cards will be a must && it will be a lot easier since we will have all of the addresses. Happy Friday! 🙂
mmmmm that corn pudding!
Great find on that article, reading it now — filled with gems!
I am (impatiently) waiting to get our pictures back from our family photo session so I can get to working on our Christmas card! It is one of my favorite things.

Hello Dollys are a must and corn pudding is so amazing. I want to make the champagne ice cubes.
Love all of your past Christmas cards! I've got the template you used last year in my "Saved" folder at Minted…decisions, decisions! I just need to commit and be done with it!
Champs ice cubes?! Genius! I love all the cards! I ordered ours again this year from Tiny Prints, but also love these Minted designs. Can't wait to see your final product!

I'm so behind, I haven't ordered our cards yet. In fact, I just thought about it this week. Those hello dolly bars look amazing, I might put those on my holiday baking list.
Love the Christmas card picks! Too cute. I'm sure yours will be stunning! I actually make my mimosa ice cubes with the orange juice instead because the champagne is my favorite part ;). Haha.
