An Old-Fashioned Tradition...and a Giveaway!

It's late October and, like me, some of you are beginning to think about your Christmas cards.

I love receiving old fashion style (aka non-virtual) holiday cards from family and friends.  
I have a few that still include a letter sharing all that has happened in their family during the past year.

There are lots of ways to display those tangible tokens of love and friendship.
I've created a Pinterest board here if you need a few ideas.

It's such a sweet tradition that, so far, hasn't totally been absorbed into the virtual world.  Hey, I'm all about the convenience of online but sometimes old-fashion ways are refreshing.

That's why I'm partnering with minted.com to bring you a $50 giveaway to use on their website.  The ease of online ordering and the beauty of a special, personalized holiday cards to mail to family and friends.

Now these aren't just your ordinary holiday cards.  Minted is known for its high-quality paper and printing. Minted’s Signature paper is thick and luxurious with a creamy cotton texture, and has been optimized for photo printing. You can also choose 100% recycled paper, Pearlescent paper which adds a subtle shimmer, DoubleThick paper or even TripleThick paper. Minted also offers 9 unique die-cut shapes. A variety of backer options allow you to add additional photos, text, and customization options to your holiday card.

We source creative content from a global community of independent artists, then sell the best content in the form of art, home d├ęcor, and stationery, directly to consumers.
