Confession: while John & I have been together for seven plus years, last year was the first year we sent out a holiday card. I always felt they were a huge pain in the butt and an added expense I didn't need. However, when we were living in NYC this time last year where everything was so decked to the high heavens for the holidays I was inspired to send some out. So I quickly gathered addresses of friends & family and turned to Minted where I had a huge selection of designs, was able to customize the design with my desired color scheme and the best part...they addressed all my envelopes for me! I have since used them for art, party invitations, moving announcements as well as this years holiday card. I picked a few of my favorites for all you last minute shoppers because let's face it, it's nice to get mail that isn't a bill. Merry Everything friends, I hope you have a great start to the holiday season!
