Check out the Minted 2013 Holiday Card Collection

I feel like the holiday season has gotten here so quickly and it almost feels like time is running out. I do my best to always show family and friends that I am thinking about them at Christmas and New Year's through a greeting card. Nothing says "I care" more than personal photos and sweet messages. Minted offers so many options for every taste from their 2013 holiday card collection. We did not have time to take any organized holiday photos this year so I thought about a collage of photos from different occasions we took throughout the year. I think this one below would be a great choice. I love how you can personalize your family's name as well as the colors.
I have noticed the hot trend in holiday cards have been the Ornament cards. How adorable is this one? Makes me wish everyone sent these out! They would be so cute in our Christmas tree. has such a user friendly platform. It makes the stress of ordering cards less of a headache. I love the variety, color options and styles. There is still plenty of time to order those cards. Check out Minted on the web, Facebook and Twitter.

I will receive a thank you code redeemable for items from for spreading the word about their 2013 Holiday Card Collection. 

Own the mantel with the help of #TopoftheMantel #sponsored

Luckily, Cardstore is here to save me and the many procrastinators of the world.

This year I plan to own the mantel! See how you can create your own cards at Cardstore.

Holidays 2011 with Shutterfly {Giveaway}

**Contest Closed** 
Winners are #12 #35 and #30~ Congratulations!
It is hard to believe that the Winter Holidays are not too far away. I have already been thinking about having a family photo taken for cards to send out to family and friends. Hey, you can never be too early! I browsed the 2011 Holiday card collection from Shutterfly and just love all of the beautiful designs!  There is everything from traditional as well as many fun, contemporary styles to choose from. That is going to be the hard part-- choosing! Look at how cute these are!

I have to figure out of I want to go with a folded type Christmas card or what we have been doing for the past few years-- the flat Christmas photo cards. I am going to pick my top 3 favorites and let the family vote. I think I might choose something that we are able to add several photos in more of a collage instead of a single photo.Now all I have to do is get the whole family together at one time to take some photos. Quite honestly, that might be the even harder part!
