Cyber Monday and an I Love Lucy episode

It's CYBER MONDAY!  Are y'all online?  I've got to do most of my shopping online this year so I'm all for finding bargains.  I'm popping on quickly this morning to see what deals are out there.


I saw this on Amazon this morning and couldn't help but think of an old I Love Lucy episode.  The one where she and Ethel are trying to lose weight and Lucy gets stuck in the sauna. Lol!

Gosh! After looking at this sauna, I think I want one!

What good deals are you finding online today?

If case you missed it, check out yesterday's post about Christmas cards.  I love the ease on creating mine online with the great sites out there like minted.com.

Ok guys, I'm off to work.  Hope to be back soon!

Hugs,

Angie

Christmas Cards - Sharing Our Year with Loved Ones

The following is a sponsored post but all opinions are 100% mine!  

"Stainglass Rejoice" - Full-Bleed Photo, Modern Christmas Photo Cards in Robin's Egg by Coco and Ellie Design.

Wow!  Thanksgiving is over and that blur of a moment between Thanksgiving and Christmas has begun.  As most of you know, I went back to work this past year.  It's been great but not without the challenges of juggling schedules, errands, and, well, just everyday life.  (Cue the "Life Goes On" song)

"Peace Faith Love" - Animal, Bold typographic Christmas Photo Cards in fir by Karidy Walker.

Sometimes I feel like our lives are on a huge conveyor belt and we're grabbing whatever things we can as life moves along.

As busy as life is for everyone, this time of year is the perfect time to pause and reflect on the past twelve months.  How the children have grown. New jobs and new opportunities.  New family members.  Graduations.  New homes.  The list goes on and on.

"Wonders of His Love" - Bold typographic, Modern Christmas Photo Cards in Wintermint by Erica Krystek.

One thing I've especially enjoyed is sharing this with others through our annual Christmas card and receiving theirs as well.  I have one friend that has their card made into an ornament and hung on a tree just for their cards.  It's fun to see how everyone has changed over the years.

"Heart Snapshot Mix®" - Foil Pressed Photo Art Print by Minted in beautiful frame options and a variety of sizes.

Last year I used Minted.com for our Christmas cards and I have to say I was so pleased with them.  They offer a wide variety of themes and styles as well as coordinating envelopes.  You can even send them your recipients list and they will address them!  All very beautifully done by the best independent artists around.

I'm using Minted.com again this year and can't wait to see my order.  I'm just a little behind schedule.  You know, life and all.  But, they should be here soon!!

"Bright Spirit" - Floral & Botanical, Hand Drawn Christmas Photo Cards in Ink by iamtanya.

 I hope you'll check them out.  They offer a variety of items, not just Christmas cards!


This is where great design comes from.
Minted connects you with the best independent
artists to bring you endlessly fresh,
truly unique art, stationery, and home decor
you won't find anywhere else.




Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas y'all!!  I hope I won't be such a stranger around here.  I appreciate each of you!!!  Thanks for sticking around all!!

Hugs!
Angie
