Are you sending out really cute Christmas cards like these this year?

I have had really good intentions to get Christmas cards out the past three years. Pictures were taken. Cards were designed and ordered…late. But I just KNEW I would get them out if I threw myself into a time crunch, or not. I have three boxes of really adorable Christmas cards sitting under my desk.

Some hail, “Happy New Year! Love ~ The Curtises”. Others say, “Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year!” With all of those exclamation points, you would think I would have motivated to get ‘er done. Nope.

THIS year is different. WHY you ask?

1) It is November 12 and my cards are designed and ready to go. Yup! *pat pat pat*

2) The kind folks at Minted gave me an offer that I couldn’t resist. *pat pat pat*

3) I have my address list (from the last two years) printed out. *pat pat pat*

4) Stamps are purchased. *pat pat pat*

5) YOU will all pressure me to get this done! *pat pat pat — for you*


Ok, so you might have caught that little bit about Minted. Incredible folks over there. It’s the “make a list” time of year. So here are the 5  reasons I really adore this company.

At Minted, we love the idea that our products will find their way into your most personal celebrations, and we don’t take that honor lightly. That’s why we only use fine paper stock, rich inks, and crisp printing methods. We guess you could say that quality is an obsession for us. We stand behind our products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Find out more about Minted.

You aren’t limited to holiday cards either. There are so many personalized cards and gift ideas on their site.
