Last night we were talking with the boys about our favorite parts abour Christmas.  Bradley asked me what my favorite part about Christmas was, and while it is hard to narrow it down to just one, I told him that I loved getting/sending Christmas cards.  The creative side in me loves prepping the outfits for the shoot and selecting the design for the card.  There is something so nostalgic about filling each envelope with your card and physically sticking them in the actual  mailbox.  We have had so much fun checking the mail each day and finding cards from the people we love the most.  I usually leave the cards we get up way past Christmas.  I just have a hard time parting with them!

This year I collaborated with Minted and I have to say, I was so thrilled with how they turned out!  From the thick card stock, to the gold-leaf script, to the gold glitter lined envelopes.  My favorite part might be the fact that all I had to up was upload my address list at the time I ordered the cards, and they all came to me addressed!  As much as I love cards, I usually spend the most time trying to get my printer to print correctly onto the cards, so I was thrilled to not have to go through that headache this year.

While most Holiday cards are already mailed off by now, Minted is graciously giving away a $100 to spend on their custom gifts section.  I browsed through this section of their site last night and was blown away at what beautiful products they offer!  Some of my favorites include the stationary (loving this this, and this) and the amazing custom kids prints (I might need this one for my boys room).  They also have personalized calendars and  wrapping paper.  They would make great gift for Christmas (or yourself!).  If you do plan on ordering for Christmas, make sure you check out their Christmas deadline ordering form.   

To enter, just visit and leave me a comment telling me your favorite design (good luck picking just one!)  For an extra entry, like Minted on facebook  leave a second comment letting me know.  I'll post the winner next Wed.  Good luck!
