$150 Minted.Com Giveaway!

It's that time again! Ever since the leaves have begun to fall, holiday cards and all things paper have been on my mind! Having procured everyone's  outfits for this year's family picture months in advance, I managed to cut down some of the stress associated with taking the perfect picture for that perfect holiday card. 
minted


You know what else cuts down on some of that stress? Minted and their amazingly beautiful wide array of both personalized and customizable holiday cards. They've been the go-to holiday paperer for our family for the last several years and we continue to receive compliments on their work long after the holidays are over. 

Not only do they have an incredible unique array of designs but they support some of the most talented indie-designers around. Perhaps you're in the market for a non-photo holiday card or other personalized stationery, Minted has you covered. 

Check out some of the beautiful Minted designs of 2013 that I've included below. 

If you've been following the paper trend as of late, you'll notice that pressed foil is all the rage! This first card below is in the top running for this year's M Family Christmas card. After all, it meets all of the credentials: It's a) beautiful b) says the requisite "Merry Christmas" and c) makes the family photo of choice the centerpiece of the card. It's a win-win all around!

  9. One of my favorite holiday traditions has always been that before we open our gifts on Christmas morning we all sit down in front of the tree and read Luke chapter 2, the story of Jesus birth. It's one of the ways we try to remind ourselves of what the Christmas holiday is really about. We also started a new tradition last year with our daughter on her first Christmas, and that was getting her a new pair of pj's on Christmas eve! We will definitely be continuing that this year as well!

  73. We do a Christmas ball. In the middle is the biggest present (wrapped), then it is wrapped with some yarn and another present is added. That is wrapped with yarn and another present it added....keep going until you have a big ball of wrapped presents and yarn. Then the youngest kid starts and pulls the yarn until a present falls out. Keep going until all the presents are out of the ball. It is a fun way to keep kids entertained, everyone gets a little something, and laughs are had when someone open something the other gender would have much preferred :) We have been doing this my whole life. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I typed this up before but don't see it now. If it is a double sorry!

    For as long as I can remember we have done the christmas ball. In the middle is the biggest present (wrapped) then yarn is wrapped around it. Add another present, wrap yarn, keep going until you have a big ball of yarn and wrapped presents. Then the youngest kid starts and pull the yarn until a present falls out. They pass the ball along and the next person pulls until a present falls out. This is a great way to keep kids entertained, everyone gets a few things, and laughs are had when someone gets something that would have been better for the other gender :)

We've now continued this tradition with our two children and it's the best!

  168. I have to choose one?! I love seeing my children dig through the ornament boxes, squealing in delight as they rediscover them and I secretely adore the always heavily one-sided decorated tree that results from their decorating skills.

  171. Baking cookies with my mom and sisters is my favorite. I missed doing this last year being 6 hours away, but hoping we are able to do it and get together this year.
    Mostly it's my one sister and mom doing most of the baking and my other sister and I making other foods and taste testing

  174. Having kids, my favorite thing to do on christmas morning is wake up before them, put in the breakfast casserole, turn on christmas music and all of the lights in the house, and then make sure I have the ipad ready to record them as they walk down the stairs. Seeing their faces as they turn into the living room and see the presents and half-eaten cookies is something I want to remember forever, so I always record it.

    My favorite holiday tradition is going to Christmas Eve service, then looking at Christmas lights on the way home, eating appetizer food and listening to Christmas music with my husband! This will be our baby girls first Christmas.. so many new traditions to be made! :)
