One of my favorite things about the holidays is sending and receiving holiday photo cards.  It is so fun to see how our friends and family have grown over the year.  We open the cards together every night and almost fight over who gets to open them!

I’ve partnered with Minted again to create our family Christmas photo card.  Their website is so easy to navigate, design your custom card and place the order.  This year, I’m taking advantage of their addressing service!  For years, I’ve had my address list in an Excel spreadsheet but never thought to use this free service!

Instead of using a professional photo as I have in the past, I chose a photo from our family vacation taken my iPhone X.  It turned out great!  Yay for the bellman at the hotel with mad photo skills!

Minted is a community of independent designers who share the most creative designs for cards, stationery and more.  The ability to show cards in different colorways with your photo and in different formats is my favorite option on the site.  The sorting tools make finding the perfect card a quick and easy.

Minted is currently offering 15% off all Holiday Cards with Code: SHINE.  And no worries if you don’t have your photo ready.  You can purchase your cards before you’ve chosen your photo! Just choose the card and purchase with the option to finish later.  Now, all you have to do is let everyone know to be photo ready at Thanksgiving!

Cheers to beautiful holiday cards and a great discount, too!

Color Crush: Coral

Color Crush: Coral

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
