A Confession.

This Christmas season has been a total whirlwind for me.  Our weekdays and weekends have been jam packed, leaving little time for certain items on my to-do list.  One of those things that still isn't done...our Christmas cards.  I mean, I completed part of the job.  I personalized a design from Minted, placed my order and it arrived on our doorstep Tuesday.  Now I need to find the time to address and send them out. People may get our cards on Christmas, or even the day after, but I am determined to get them out.  You hear me?  D-e-t-e-r-m-i-n-e-d.

Ahhhh, now that I've got that off my chest, I'll leave you with some time to browse Minted's fabulous website.  It's seriously amazing.  {I was not compensated to endorse Minted.  They have absolutely no idea who I am.  I just love their stuff and wanted to share with you guys!!}


PS-Perny really needs to pull his weight around our household.  Maybe I should teach him how to address cards so he can help me out instead of doing this all day, every day....


He's lucky he's cute. ;)

Anyone else feeling overwhelmed with to-do lists lately?! Tis' the season!!

  1. You are so right! I always send out photo cards for the holiday, but this year we have been slammed packed so I just picked up some simple cards from Target and sent them out. There is always next year. And I looovveeeee Minted! They have great prints, too!

  3. Christmas cards are ALWAYS the first thing to be dropped in my house when things get crazy. This year I made sure I ordered them early (from Minted too!) and had stamps and return address labels ready to go. I got them out last week, but my house is not decorated at all, haha. I am soooo not ready for next week. Hopefully a lot of magic happens this weekend.

  4. You know I Feel overwhelmed. But I think if I'd look at Perny my stress would melt away. My cats don't snuggle around like he does. They like hiding under beds when the kids are around ;)
    Love the minted cards.

  5. I don't know how anyone has time to blog during the holidays! I can't even see straight I have so much going on, and I think I am going to send out New Years cards because I totally missed the Christmas boat!!
    Perny is so cute I want to give him a squeeze!

  7. Don't feel guilty - we haven't even gotten the cards we ordered yet! I'm hoping they show up on Monday and I can turn them out immediately since I have off on Monday. They may arrive after Christmas, but what can you do? December feels like it passed too quickly!

  8. Glad to see a few pics of Perny I haven't seen any in a little bit. My cat's take up similar positions all day. I'm only doing a few cards this year. I really need to get those sent out. :)

  12. My sister is a photographer and did our cards for us this year otherwise I'm not sure it would have happened! I still had to address and send them, but sometimes just ordering them is half the battle. I love the cards from minted! Oh and I just love Perny and I don't even really like cats normally! :)

  13. I've definitely been feeling overwhelmed! We spent the whole weekend watching movies at home to cut down on the stress, but now I'm stressed that I didn't get anything done. Oh the holidays...
