It has been so busy the last two months my head feels like it is set at continuous spin mode. Between end of school exams, preparing for graduation & all the chaos that goes along with it, college prep and new jobs I feel a little disorganized! I mean, I even forgot to go to work one day last week. Yes, FORGOT! I mean, WHO FORGETS TO GO TO WORK?! Never, in all my years of employment have I ever done THAT! At least I didn’t miss the whole day; just an hour- but STILL…
I’m usually pretty organized…I like things to be set and in its place. A list where tasks can be checked off as mission accomplished is one of my favorite things. If I can get a task finished way ahead of time? That is a true bonus in my book.
A few years ago I thought it would be pretty awesome to have my holiday cards done early. We were on vacation at the beach and I figured we could take a fun family photo in a beautiful setting and make that our greeting to friends and family. How nice to reminisce the warm days of summer while December usually has a blanket of snow covering the ground. It was awesome- cards were done, addressed and ready to be mailed after Thanksgiving. One holiday ‘To-Do List” item checked off and accomplished. Yay me for thinking ahead!
Last year did not play out so well and as a result- No cards were sent out at all! Nope. Not a single one.
Fast forward a few weeks ago and enter a lovely company called Minted.
Minted is an online stationary company that has beautiful card designs, paper products and even hosts design submission challenges. When I went to their site, I loved their Christmas card designs so much that I thought maybe this year I can try to revive the Christmas in July of a few years ago and get my cards done early!
It’s a simple process really- Upload a favorite photo into their design template, choose your greeting and viola! You’re done! What I really liked about the options is the detail to the back of the cards! Yes! If you click the little arrow that says “show back” you can see the what the back will look like! Not your typical plain white with company computer stamp, but something that looks pretty!
Minted offers so much more too- baby announcements, birthday cards, wedding…you name it, it’s available!
