Today, I’m continuing with my early Christmas prep theme! Being focused on my goal of having very little on my Christmas To Do list in December when my daughter gets home has me thinking ahead. With Thanksgiving being so late, it will be a crunch anyway! One big item is off my list now. I’ve already designed a beautiful holiday photo card with Minted and had them address my envelopes, too.

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 all rush to open them each night!
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. Minted’s talented, independent designers provide so many options for card designs, 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. I love how easy it was to find a design to coordinate with their outfits.
This year, I’m taking advantage of their FREE addressing service again. It makes that task so much easier! For years, I’ve had my address list in an Excel spreadsheet but only last year figured out how to use their FREE addressing service. It’s such a time saver and easy to use! You can even go in throughout the year and update the addresses right in the database in your account.
Don’t have your addresses together or like to hand address but still want the cute imprint on the front? No problem! You can create a “contact” with just a . as their information and either put your label over it or just simply address as if it wasn’t there! I do this for all my extra envelopes or when I realize an address in my database is incorrect.
This year, I used a photo that James French, our favorite Dallas photographer took of the girls before my oldest left for college. These photos are so special to me. James has taken photos of my girls since my oldest was 3 months old. They know him well and are always so at ease with him making the photos show their true personalities. If you are in Dallas, call him asap! He still has openings in time for Christmas cards.
Last year, 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!

Beautiful Christmas card! I love the quality of Minted’s products.
Another vote for Minted. Have uses them for holiday cards and various invites, always good quality. This year I had a minor issue with an order and their customer service resolved it so well and so promptly. Also love the preaddressed card service. Looks great and a huge timesaver!
I love this. It’s awesome that you mentioned your photographer and how special the relationship is that you have. I’m sure it means so much that you treasure the pics he’s taken of your family through the years. What an insightful post.
