How in the world is it December and time for selecting a Christmas Card?! I mean how?! I feel like we went on vacation to Arizona for Thanksgiving and our warm Fall weather didn’t return with us. It’s cold, there are Christmas decorations all over and the stores are just insanity. I personally would rather skip the store whenever possible so I shop online. There is nothing like a late night internet shopping session when everyone is in bed and reality TV is on in the background. First thing on my shopping list every year is our annual Christmas Card. I’m usually left scrambling for a photo though so this year I came up with a brilliant idea to shoot last month. My Dad happens to look very similar to a certain Jolly bearded man and has the coolest vintage truck. We joined forces and the kids turned out some adorable photos for this year’s Christmas Card printed by my favorite online store, Minted.com.
I have the hardest time deciding on just one photo to represent our entire year so I selected this folded card with lots of space for additional photos. This past September we took our family to Hawaii for the first time so I included lots of photos from our trip.
It also has a section for custom text so I included some highlights for each child, likes, dislikes and a little about our trip.
Possibly the greatest feature Minted.com offers is addressing your envelopes for you. One year I didn’t even send cards out, even though I ordered them because I couldn’t get around to addressing them. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate not having to do this final step. Just stuff envelopes, stamp and pop in the mail.
