 Tiny Prints is a long time favorite of many, for good reason. Their Studio Basics designs are the most affordable holiday photo cards and are also super cute.

I had to show this design too even though, a little more pricey. Just fell in love with the barn door…

Minted “Find It Fast” Feature

By far, my favorite feature of designing holiday cards with Minted is their “Find it Fast” feature, which allows you to filter your holiday card design search depending on different parameters like number of photos, type of card, photo orientation, price, etc. Then, click “On” at the bottom for the Find It Fast feature, and it will populate your photo(s) into a ton of different designs.

I can’t tell you how much this  cuts down on the time spent selecting a design! You can actually see your photo in all the different ones to quickly sift through and find the ones that work.

The Personalization Options are Endless!

When you see a design(s) you like, select “personalize” and you will be taken to a screen where you can further customize your card.

Many of the designs have different color options you can try on, different border choices, zoom options, font choices and options to edit text or wording.  I heart options.  Make sure to keep clicking “save” so you can save some favorites to share for opinions if you wish.

On to the Back!

Once the front of the card is complete, you should be  ready to print, right? WRONG! Minted gives you a ton of personalization and customization options on the back too!

Did you have a hard time choosing a favorite photo for the front? Add some photos on the back! Want to share a few highlights from 2016? Add some text! So many fun choices to make your card special.

The Envelope Please…

But folks, there’s more! Now comes the envelope!

Minted’s Address Assistant and FREE recipient envelope printing is another HUGE benefit to choosing Minted to print your holiday cards. The matching envelope elegance just puts their designs over the top!

A few years back I entered in all my recipient addresses so now when I order my cards, my friends and family’s names come printed FOR FREE in a darling matching design on the envelopes!  Do you know what this means?  I no longer have to get in a fight with my computer printer while attempting to print my own labels! Hallelujah!

After the envelope is gussied up, your design is complete! This year they even have matching POSTAGE designs! Wow.

Our Family’s 2016 Holiday Card

When scrolling through all the designs, this design grabbed me. I love the “Love is All Around” wording, because of the love we have experienced from so many people this year with loss of my beautiful mom.  Love truly has been all around us.

Happy Holidays from my family to yours this season and I hope you have the opportunity to design your own Minted holiday card. Good luck on the giveaway!

love is all around

Personalized santa video

Santa Claus is coming to town, but before he does he wants to send a special personalized Santa video made especially for your child.  At Portable North Pole -(PNP) – the magic of Santa in all his holly jolly glory come straight to your computer or mobile phone with a customized greeting for your child.  It’s darling. Beyond.

However, only moms-in-the-know who sign up to use Santa’s special portal will receive these messages, which is why I felt it was my duty to share these special personalized Santa videos with you.   The “starter” videos are free, and super cute, but if you wanted Santa to get more specific and include more photos and information, including a verdict as to whether the child is on the “naughty” or “nice” list, there is a small fee.  Because, I am sure as moms, we can relate to just how busy Santa is this time of year and these videos take longer to create *wink wink*. This year I sprung for the little extra, it was worth it.

Click here to get yours and watch your child’s eyes sparkle with the magic of the season. xo

What Are You RSVP’ing to This Month?

holiday perspective

Can you name 2 – 3 Christmas gifts you received five years ago? Or even one?

I can’t. In fact I can’t even remember anything I got LAST Christmas.

At church last weekend our pastor had anyone who could remember Christmas gifts of 2010 raise their hands.  Only 2 people out of huge congregation said they could. The majority couldn’t recall one gift.

But looking back, I can tell you the people we were with that year, the traditions we carried out, and memories of things we did together.

Bottom line?

People trump presents. 

It is so easy to get caught up in the buy, buy, buy craze.

But what really matters are the people you spend time with this month.

RSVP to People, Not Parties

Our church urged us this month to think carefully when RSVP’ing to things.  To think about the events, the people, and the connections that are meaningful to us.  RSVP “yes!” to those people.  Carve out the time for soul-fillers. 

December is a ridiculous month of social obligations, right? I give you permission to RSVP to that party you are not super excited to attend.

Book a date with your bestie, hubby or kids instead.

Happy holidays my friends.  Thank you for reading my blog.  Thank you for being soul-fillers to me!

20 Amazon Holiday Gifts for Girls 2015

Holiday Gift Ideas for Girls

Having two girls ages six and nine,  I wanted to put together an Amazon holiday gift ideas for girls post to give you ideas for any girls ages roughly 6 to 10+ on your list this year.

 

And, I chose all things from Amazon for easy holiday shopping this Cyber Monday.

Holiday Gift Ideas for Girls 

 

1. Diary with a lock  – Super secretive and super secure. Hee hee. But the girls think all their innermost thoughts are completely private given the lock and key function.  Very intriguing.

 

2. Full series book box sets (For younger girls Kinder – 2nd we love Junie B Jones, 2nd – 3rd graders Magic Treehouse series, 3rd – 4th grade American Girl series ) – For kids it is super fun to have the ENTIRE set and I think encourages reading in order to make their way through the box.

 

3. Create your own messenger bag – These will entertain my girls for hours. Fun art project + keepsake bag.

 

4. New set of quality colored pencils – Coloring is all the rage these days, not just for kids, but adults too.  A good quality set of colored pencils is sure to get a lot of milage.

 

5. Pair them with an intermediate coloring book like this one and it’s a great Christmas break activity (for the girls and you too!)

 

6. Lanyard & Lacing How To Book – Making lanyards was the Rainbow Loom of 2015.

 

7. Kinetic sand – This almost gave my clean freak husband an anxiety attack but the kids absolutely love it, so it’s worth it.  Setting it up outside is ideal.

 

8. Shopkins – These are really the silliest little things, but for any girl who loves to “collect” things, she will love the Shopkins.

 

9. Maga-tiles – My girls love making houses with Maga-tiles for the Shopkins.  Great to fine tune those engineering skills.

 

10. Little girls who love being active will love some new pieces of activewear. I love Limeapple for the prices.

 

11. Lately my girls have been really into looking up astrological signs and birthstones so birthstone earrings would make a fun gift.

 

12. Then put them in keepsake jewelry box for an extra special treat.

 

13. Tetherball system. This is on my 1st grader’s Santa list this year.  Tetherball is all the rage on the recess playground.  She wants to practice at home to become “Tetherball Champion” at school. For real.

 

14. And for a soccer-loving little girl, this soccer net  is a great backyard addition.

 

15. Melissa & Doug Peel & Press kits. Back to the craft world, these full peel & press kits are like painting by number, only with stickers.  They make a fun piece for their room when complete too.

 

16. My oldest saw me writing this post and yelled I WANT THAT!! When she saw this sleepover duffel (lots of cute prints). Great for quick overnights or weekend trips.  Consider taking it to your local embroidery shop to personalize, which would be a really fun gift.

 

17. Yahtzee. Best. Game. Ever. Not only is it fun but it is FANTASTIC for math skills.  My 6-year-old just learned so great for any girls 6+. Not to mention my husband and I love playing too! Yahtzee!

 

18. Charades for Kids. Another fun board game for family game nights.

 

19. Molding Clay Model Magic.  Think “play doh” for the older girls. They can make all kinds of cute creations and lots of fun clay accessories can go with if they want to make and fire real keepsake figurines.

 

20. Amazon bookmark gift card  – My girls LOVE getting Amazon gift cards. They are so fun for older kids because you don’t have to drag them to a store in person and you can shop by price range so they can truly pick from so many things.  I love that Amazon does cute bookmarks to make it more than just a gift card.

 

Happy Shopping Mamas!
