You know how difficult it is to get 3 children & a toddler to pose (in a somewhat uniform fashion) for the family Christmas photo?
I took these whilst on our Thanksgiving excursion.
This was before Thanksgiving dinner & the kids had been playing with their cousins. Everyone was dressed up in a costume & didn’t want to take them off.
So, instead of fighting with them about it, I thought, eh, what the heck. Let them wear the costumes. It’s more authentic, more memorable. That’s what I tell myself.
This year I’m sending out holiday postcards, rather than a Christmas card, letter, & photo.
Holiday postcards are a somewhat new concept to me, but I think it’s brilliant–less postage, less waste. You can include a photo (or 2 or 3) & you still have the option of writing a mini-version of a Christmas letter on the back.
I’ll be ordering mine from Minted*. Have you seen what they have to offer?
I love the variety & style of their photo cards. I am a fan of their typography–stylish, elegant, modern–you know I’m a sucker for good typography.
And oh, the options. I still haven’t buckled down & made my choice yet. But they have a “find it fast” tool where you can upload your photos & see multiple holiday card designs at once. Makes the whole process so much easier.
You can personalize the design you choose, & they make it easy to do so. Their prices are extremely reasonable & their products are high-quality & professional. Love Minted!
I’m thrilled to be able to share the Minted love & offer a $43 gift card (the amount to purchase 25 holiday postcards) to two bring joy readers.

Had I not been approached by Minted, I would still buy my postcards from their company, as I think they offer the best product on the market. Everything in this post is written by me.
