A $200 Giveaway with Minted!

I’m thrilled to announce that Lyz is the lucky winner!

Thank you Minted for the fabulous giveaway, all of you for entering, and random.org for choosing a winner!

Just once a year, I love having our family’s photo taken by someone else.

Not so I can get that just-right-pose, but so I can see my loves through someone else’s eyes.

Perfect in our imperfections.

Full of fun, and whimsy, and ahem independence.

Once every one of my heartstrings is pulled,

And every single gem is, indeed, captured,

It’s finally time to do something with all of these treasures.

And that’s where Minted comes in.

We ordered our holiday photo cards from Minted this year, and I’m thrilled to share themย with you. Their style is stunning. Their quality is incomparable. And their service is phenomenal.

For me, choosing a design to love, was the easy part. Choosing just one, was the problem.

I was drawn to so very many of their unique colors, fonts, and formats.

But finally, I did fall in love with the Warm Wishes Holiday Mini Bookย for our holiday cards. It was “The One” because of the space inside to capture each of my children -slowed down, zoomed in, and shared- in photos and words and wishes.

I couldn’t be more excited to announce that the lovely folks at Minted are offering one of you $200 towards your cards -Thanksgiving, Holiday, Celebrations – whatever your heart desires, because that’s what they’re all about.

Everyone (everywhere) is eligible, just leave a comment below to let me know that you’re interested, and (hopefully!) your wish will be my command.

A winner will be randomly picked and announced first thing Friday morning, November the 18th.

And just for the fun and the whimsy and the Oy factors- can you find Brody here?

  39. Loved the photos of the family. “Perfect in our imperfections” describes my family to a tee, but I can’t get them to participate in one photo let alone in a book. Thank you for allowing me to be a brief part of your family. I feel like I’m there in the scene, and it was a happy way to spend my Saturday afternoon.

  84. Those cards are beautiful! This is the first time we have not moved right before Christmas in four years. Instead, we will get to celebrate in our new home without having to unpack. I am so excited for this holiday season and to get to be HOME. Last year, we were moving to Alaska so Christmas cards got left behind. It was so sad! I must check out Minted for cards, I love it!
