Our family Christmas pictures this year were more work than I imagined they would be. You see, we had just gotten a good amount of snow and Caleb not only was sick, but wasn’t a super huge fan of standing still for more than .00001 seconds. Thankfully, my friend Meg snapped a few great shots of us as a family. They may not be perfect, but this is us and I love them. Bella even got in on the action, and I snapped a few of Jonathan and Caleb playing, one in particular is is my new favorite of him and also the middle photo on our card.
For the past two years I have been using minted for all of my cards– Christmas, baby shower, invitations, etc. I have used other online card shops in the past, but I really feel like minted continues to step up their game with unique designs and touches. In fact, our card features the font Asterism, which is by my friend Molly Jacques (who will, by the way, be teaching at THIS La Petite Bloom this May in Grand Rapids at our workshop! <— plug. nailed it) I also am obsessed with the matching card inserts and the amazing address sticker band– honestly, if I had to address these PLUS write my address in I would die. It’s so sad that when I write for more than 3 minutes my hand starts to cramp. I don’t think I have done much actual handwriting since I was in college! Aaaaand, I officially aged myself.
