We say it every year and I’m going to say it again: Where did the year go?! I blinked and it was Halloween and we’re now three weeks before the start of the holiday season: Thanksgiving. Which means: it’s time to get the holiday cards started. The year went by so fast that I didn’t have a chance to get professional family photos taken. Well, thank goodness for Minted, a design marketplace that connects you to the best indie artists; and their designs can make any picture look gorgeous enough for a Christmas, Holiday or New Year’s card. Thank you to Minted for sponsoring this post.
So back to the fact that I have NO professional photos available for my holiday cards. I went through all of my pictures and the only family picture I have of ALL of us is the family-selfie I took when we were at Disney World and went down Splash Mountain (minus the one of me in a bathing suit and that definitely doesn’t qualify). It’s a happy picture, but definitely not worthy of a holiday card.
Luckily, The Hubby caught two amazing photos of the girls this past winter, playing in the snow in my mom’s back yard. I also found a picture of the girls looking all sisterly during our Turks & Caicos vacation, so I decided to use those.
Because Minted has beautiful, unique holiday card designs and they make it so easy and intutive (more on that below) to design your holiday cards, I quickly found three designs that fit the pictures and because they came out so beautiful, I couldn’t make up mind…so….
