I walked into CVS today and almost jumped out of my skin because of the scary Halloween figure they have greeting you at the entrance. Not only was I ready to scream out loud, but it dawned on me how close Halloween is, which means the others are right around the corner.

So then I came home and jumped online where I was immediately greeted by Facebook ads for holiday cards. Is the world trying to tell me something? Does it know that I haven’t even thought of a costume or where I plan to spend the holidays? Needless to say my inner Christmas geek lit up and I clicked on the ad.

What I came to was a site I had never been to before, Minted (.com). Have you visited this site before? I was completely in love with EVERYTHING, not just the holiday card selection. Minted is takes actual artist designs and sells them on their site. Like I said, there is everything from photos, frames, cards, and custom pillows. I love the photos and handmade frames A LOT. However right now I think my focus will be on their holiday card selection.

The last time I sent out holiday cards was when I was with my ex. My current man-slice and I have yet to send out cards because truth be told, he’s rather a Grinch. However, I was thinking that it might be nice to send out a few cards this year, especially with the selection on Minted.

So after poking around the site for a bit, I fell in love with these 3 card/styles. I’m leaning more towards #2 because of our semi-long distance relationship, but I need YOUR HELP! Help me choose which holiday card we should send out!

Choice #1
Choice #2
Choice #3


The possibilities are endless and I’m really looking forward to hearing what you guys think!! Please tell me your pick in the comments below!

    I just discovered the site too….it’s so awesome. I’d definitely pick number 3. I always like to see the photos of people on the cards I receive.

    My initial reaction: No. No, no, no. It can’t possibly be that close to Christmas!! I’m still waiting for a week without a day over 90 degrees! Agh!
    Then I saw your pictures and realized that I need to get on this like yesterday. I didn’t send card last year (or many of the years before that) but I did talk about it. I talked about it through Thanksgiving, then through Christmas, but I never acted. I haven’t visited Mint, but it looks like a great place to start. Oh, and I like number 3.

    Oh…so cool, thanks for introducing me to Minted…I like #3 but #2 works as well. I love getting snail mail holiday cards and ecards and send both myself. It is so fun to send one with a favorite man-slice on it too! πŸ™‚

    I have never sent out Christmas cards before! Now I am thinking that maybe I should this year! I really like option 2. Especially if a lot of friends and family live out of state. I really like the changes to your site and blog name πŸ™‚ I haven’t been around the blogging community in a while so I’m still catching up on things haha. I’ll continue to look around on your site! I hope you are doing well!
