Hello there!!! It is snowing like crazy here in Kelowna today and it has me in the holiday spirit! LOL! If you saw my blog yesterday you’ll know that I chatted a bit about our FIRST family holiday card photoshoot … we dressed the part (Nacho included) and our photos turned out AMAZING!!
Ever since I can remember I have ALWAYS been jealous of family holiday cards, it might seem like a strange thing to be jealous over but I was pretty much single until I was 33 … and by that time I thought I would already be married with several children … LOL!! So needless to say, every time Christmas rolled around and one showed up in my mail I was a touch bitter about it.
Fast forward a little bit and I met Justin, we moved in together and we got Nacho … YES!!! This meant we could pull off a Christmas card … right?! LOL!! Well … things got even sweeter … as you all know, this past year has been unreal for us … we have little Leo, got engaged and renovated our first family home … and created our FIRST FAMILY HOLIDAY CARDS!! OMG … HALLELUJAH!!
We had our photos taken, once I had these in my hands I sat down at my computer, logged in to my Minted account and created our holiday cards … it honestly felt so surreal … like a dream come true!! Creating these cards on Minted was so freakin EASY … there were so many design options to choose from, I actually felt a bit spoiled … and then torn because I had THREE end results to choose from and I went back and forth for a bit (I mean, this is a big deal for me guys … LOL!!) before I chose “the one” … here are the options I was playing with …
Cute right?! I mean … how can you not just sit there and play around for HOURS when you have so many ridiculously adorable template, fonts, and colours to work with … lol. All said and done, I went with this one and I really think I nailed it …
As soon as I got them in the mail from Minted I tore the box open and just stared at them, I was so happy with the design and the quality of the photos, I started writing some right away and then got distracted with Leo … and Nacho … and my work/life balance in general so chances are I probably won’t even get around to writing more until after I get back from my vacation in December … and who even knows if I’ll even get the chance to pop them in mail, but hey … I FINALLY have my first family holiday card, and I couldn’t be happier.
Do you make family holiday cards every year??
