Holiday Cards Made Easy

This post is sponsored by my friends over at Minted.

Every November, I mentally commit to crafting holiday cards. And then the frenzy of December happens, so I’ll swear I’m going to get busy making my New Year’s cards. Take a guess if either actually get done. (A: Nope. Never.)

So this year I’ve decided to let the professionals handle the job. Check out these cards that just arrived in the mail from Minted. Part of my lack of organization with holiday cards is that I’m never actually looking for the typical “holiday card photo” throughout the year. Lucky for us, my kids and their new bedroom were featured in the August/September 2016 issue of FamilyFun magazine so I got a slew of amazing photos from the photographer, Biz Jones. This one didn’t run in the issue but it totally captures Oliver and Sommer as their goofy, yummy selves.

We sat down this weekend to write notes and stuff the envelopes (of course we had to add a little sparkly confetti to each). Oliver and Sommer were excited to pen messages to their friends on the backs.

And then, I tried to capture a photo of them in the same position, but as you can see, there was no recreating that perfectly sweet, joyful moment. Instead we made about sixty more (mostly blurry), with these nine being my faves.
