It isn't too late. They still want to hear from you.

It is ok.  You don't need to worry so much.  I know the mailing window for Christmas cards is officially passed -- you know it is today, right??  USPS gives you until the end of the day today to get those cards in OR ELSE.  Or else what, you ask?  They won't arrive by Christmas - DUN DUN DUN.  You DO know that the friends and family that you are sending cards to are OK with getting cards after Christmas, right?  They just want to see your pretty picture of all those kids, or get that handwritten note from you, or have just a token from you that you are thinking of THEM.  It is OK if it didn't get there before the Christmas presents were ripped open.  It really is.  They just want to hear from you.

So today, we are going to tackle those late but lovely cards and not only that, but today A Nest for All Seasons is teaming up with Minted. to help remember those January birthdays.

Confused?  Don't be.

You know that one person  in your life that you just KEEP forgetting to buy something for because her birthday is in January?  (I have two in my fam!)
  I have the gift for you.

You know those Christmas cards you though you would order last week but never quite got around to it in time for Christmas mailing?  
Got you covered.

Get writer's cramp hand addressing envelopes?  No worries.  Got that covered too.

TODAY friends, one of you is gong to win $150 to the Minted. store AND two FRAMED art prints.
  Yup.  I am hooking you UP today!  First, though, I am going to show off the loveliness that is Minted.

I have wanted to work with Minted. for a long, loooooong time.  I love them.  I think they are classy and beautiful and far cooler than me.
I love just about everything on the site, and yes, choosing which prints and designs to order is the hardest part of ordering from Minted.

Let's start at the beginning, shall we?

This year I knew I wanted to send Christmas cards (some years we just skip!) because we have our new little baby girl.  So I took our five minute photoshoot with the kids (see last year's  five minute Christmas card shoot HERE) and loaded the best photo into Minted.  I knew instantly that I wanted to go with the glittery ornaments, but the question was COLOR.  Red or gold?  I might have vacillated between the two for OH 25 minutes straight.  The decision?


These cute little cards look like glitter, but they are actually just a print the looks like glitter.  
Perfect for writing a little note on the back with some Metallic sharpie (I LOVE me some Metallic Sharpie!)

Your order comes packaged with these beautiful fabric ribbons for hanging...

Of course, I couldn't pass up the cute little stickers for the envelopes (find them in the Minted. party section), 
one with a Christmas theme from the Silver and Gold collection, the other in a cute floral.  Aren't they adorable?

You WILL want some type of closure for your envelope because the ornaments with the ribbon end up being quite thick and the extra 
security of a sticker holding the envelope closed is necessary.  (Otherwise Mr. Postman will end up with an ornament photo of you and yours.)

Another added bonus?

Minted. will address your envelopes for you.
You type in the addresses to their database and they show up looking all professional-like.

Once they arrive, they go straight to the Christmas tree -- fun, eh?

Of course, I am not only behind on Christmas cards, but of course the gift list is NOT quite finished yet.  
So shopping way I went on Minted. and I got LOST in the art print section of Minted.  Seriously, GO LOOK.
I was so impressed by the selection of original art prints from really cool Indie designers.
This one titled "Swift Fox" by Natalie Groves gets me every time.

...but it is rude to talk about things without offering some to YOU, so enter below for YOUR chance to win TWO art prints (FRAMED!) shipped straight to your front door, IN ADDITION to the $150 you can spend on cards to family and friends, more art prints or whatever your little heart desires over at Minted.

Make sure you ENTER before Christmas (even if your cards won't get there before the big day!)
Now let's get Minted. shall we?

Still wanting to try for Christmas delivery?  Here is the schedule from Minted.
