Hi guys, it's me, that girl katie, Receiving holiday cards is one of my favorite things about the Holiday Season. I see them as pure & simple little gifts. For me, getting them is like an advent calendar for adults during the holidays.

Sending out holiday cards is a tradition I grew up with and now I am doing it for my family. Obviously, everyone over the years has learned to play along.

I always start brainstorming for next years card right after the Holidays. And this year I already have a few ideas tossing around in my head thanks to Minted.

I love this one because you can make it a little more personal with your top highlights of the year. I always have good intentions to write a note to everyone but in the end I run out of time.

I love, love, love cards with humor and this one has my mind thinking.

I am a sucker for a splash of color mixed with hip font and for that I dig this one. Plus I have a huge soft spot in my heart for the Golden Gate Bridge since I lived in California for 10 years.

Minted has tons of awesome designs that you will love as will everyone on the receiving end. Yes, sending out holiday cards is a lot of effort during a super busy time of year but Minted can help make that process a lot easier.

Maybe you aren't brain storming next years holiday card but instead fixing up a space in your home like me. Minted also has a large art marketplace that will help any space feel more personal and cozy.
