Holiday Cards with Minted

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the place, families were scrambling to keep up the pace.

Two Christmas cards were already here, but we haven’t started our holiday cheer.

Okay. Enough rhyming. Let’s get down to it.  Ordering our holiday cards was a cinch this year thanks to Minted. With their variety of unique designs from a community of independent artists, the hardest part was picking which beauty we would use.

Now that we have a couple of weekends with fairly minimal plans, and the house has been painted, we’ve finally gotten around to hanging things on the walls! It’s really nice to see our house become more of a home and less like a boring, beige staging area.

We got so excited about all our work that we are thinking of doing a small housewarming. (We’ll see if we can find the time.) So, in the vein of warming homes, I’d like to play a little good idea/bad idea on housewarming gifts.

Well, what is wrong with you?!?! If you have a collection of any kind, I would highly recommend showcasing in some form or fashion. This kind of memorabilia deserves to 1. be shown off properly, and 2. is a great conversation piece for any room.
