In keeping with sharing our family traditions for the holidays, our annual Christmas card is a fun way to share the love with our family and friends especially since we live afar from everyone these days. For years I’ve used the services of Minted for various projects and each holiday season I am always excited to browse through their new designs and I love they enlist the creativity of featured artists from all around the U.S.
Last year we opted for a Year In Review card versus the traditional Christmas card since we had just moved and were traveling for a wedding. It left us with little time to prepare, but luckily Minted was there to the rescue! Here’s our card from last year…
This year we’re settled and I finally had time to pull this together! These last 12 months have been exciting, but transitional, and I am eager to share in our excitement of Greyson’s arrival in March. What better way to do that than through a simple photograph? We had the lovely help from a friend take some photos of us in our courtyard and I am so thankful to have these moments captured as we move through our pregnancy (and it’s always a bit tricky taking family photos with a squirly pup!). On the back we opted to share our sonogram photo from our 18 week appointment, which will be a great keepsake for our parents (our next sonogram is in 2 weeks!).
So without further ado, here’s this years Christmas card!

Other great aspects to ordering with Minted is their free address printing! I love how they match your chosen design and it really takes the muscle work out of addressing all of those envelopes. I also chose the wrap around return labels. I look forward to getting a personalized address stamp, but until we settle down for good I’ll just stick to my stickers.
