No-Hassle Classroom Valentine Cards For Kids:MINTED Round Up

It's getting close to that time of year where we get to celebrate LOVE on it's own special day - Valentine's Day! I remember when I was younger, Valentine's Day was such a treat! I couldn't wait to decorate my shoe box (usually left over from Christmas) and express my inner artists with cut-out hearts galore and rhinestones that would make you go blind! The best part was opening it up after school and reading all the sweet and loving words from my classmates and the candy...oh the candy! I mean what is there not to love about "LOVE" day?

As a mom with two kiddos now, outings with them can sometimes be a little rough. So if at all possible, we try to do most of our shopping online. With that said, you have no idea how thrilled I was to find out that my all time favorite stationary site, MINTED offers CLASSROOM VALENTINE CARDS!!

They offer an array of unique designs by Independent Artists making them truly unique and like no other valentine card you will find anywhere else.  They cost less than $1 each and can be personalized and customized to better suit your kiddos style! The best part about it, you don't have to leave the house! They arrive at your doorstep with envelopes included so they can easily be assembled and ready to be passed out! Today I'm sharing a few of my favorite designs, although I could include every one as they are all so adorable!

MINTED. Our 2016 Family Christmas Card + Review

Hi Friends! Last week I shared our Family Photo Session Adventure and to my delight I had more than one descent photo to choose from, which never happens! The Cherry on top - I already have them in hand and I have half of them mailed out already! I know, crazy fast!!  Thanks to MINTED.'s Holiday Card Shop the process of uploading our photo, choosing a design and adding their convenient FREE RECIPIENT ADDRESSING to our order made it a headache free process and took no time at all!

I chose a simple, yet whimsical design from graphic artist, Carolyn Maclaren! She has a beautiful collection of award winning card designs in MINTED's AMAZING Artist Catalog.
MINTED thinks of everything when it comes to a beautiful stationary package. After you work your way through the card design process using their lovely FIND IT FAST tool, you are offered a variety of "add-ons" to fully complete your Christmas Card Suite! From Coordinating envelopes & envelope liners to their FREE RECIPIENT ADDRESSING feature that is also designed to coordinate perfectly with your card design, MINTED leaves no stone unturned as far as customer convenience.




Did I mention their quality? MINTED's thick high quality paper comes in a variety of sizes and formats that allow you to customize and create a Christmas Card unique to your taste and style! I chose to shape our card using the wave-frame silhouette. It adds a fun element to the whimsical theme we went with this year.

With MINTED, your Christmas Card doesn't just stop at photo upload! You get to accessorize your card suite with accents that make your Christmas Card not just another envelope to open, but a holiday treat to display!

Return Address is also an option that makes mailing them a breeze and another weight lifted off your shoulders!




For the past few years, we have used MINTED for all of our stationary needs and couldn't be happier with their easy-to-use website and amazing customer service!

Outdoor Christmas Family Photos

"It's the most wonderful Tiiiiiiiiime, Of The Year!" 

Are you like me and look forward to having your family photos taken, even though you know they are not going to go as planned and will most likely not match the dream image you have in your mind? I usually take our photos myself every year simply because committing to a scheduled session is not in our family's DNA.  We barely remember to make it to our Dr's appointments even after they call the day before to remind us. For some reason though, I get excited about this time as I seem to think it will be an experience filled with sugar plums and rainbows with everyone in the best mood and on their best behavior! 9 times out of 10, it usually ends up with someone crying because they have to sit still for longer than a second or someone not in favor of the outfits I have picked out or someone running around like a chicken with her head cut off because she knows she only has a short amount of time before chaos starts to rain down. With that said, no matter how our family photo experience goes, I treasure these moments together and I find it amazing how every year our photos always seem to beautifully reflect this perfectly imperfect moment in time that I our family will cherish forever!

Here are a few that I was able to capture before the kiddos went wild in the woods! I'm still trying to decide on which one we want to use for our Christmas Card so Stay Tuned!!
