It’s December Already!?!

Wow – it’s really time to think about Christmas! Yikes! I’m not feeling on top of things this year. Luckily for me, other people are on top of things!
Just Believe
Have you heard of the site Minted yet? This is a site whose mission is to “connect the world’s best design geniuses with a community of design-savvy customers…” What a great idea! And, let me tell you, they have definitely found amazing designers and products.

I am kind of a sucker for pretty papers and artwork, but this site really blew me away. I was mentally doing quite a bit of shopping while I looked through the site. I went to “Art Prints” first because I have been trying to hang pictures around here. There were so many things I loved, but the best part is that you can get prints in a variety of sizes and prices. So impressed!

Of course, seeing as how I haven’t done a single thing about Christmas cards yet, I had to check out the Christmas cards. And, get this…you can upload your own picture and see how it looks in all of the cards at once. My favorite part of the whole site! There are so many amazing and gorgeous choices. Here are a few I love (and I could pick a whole lot more – there are hundreds of choices!) :

Merry Typography
It is going to be really hard to choose this year. I’ve never even thought about a postcard-style Christmas card, but I am really loving that option. I might have narrowed it down to these designs:
Pom Pom FunPostmarked
Santa Stop

So get to Minted and check it out! They have a blog, too, which is amazing, of course. I was really taken with the name of it – Julep – as well as the blog itself. Again, beautiful artwork and designs along with great DIY ideas and freebies. I liked this idea for illustrated portrait place cards:

Minted and Julep are well worth the time to sit and look a while!
