Christmas Cards…I need your help! *UPDATE*

It turns out you an get $25 off your order at Minted if you refer or friend or if a friend refers you! I wish I’d known, as I already ordered my cards… 😦 But if you want to order through them, please let me know and I’ll send you a link so you can get $25 off $50 or more.

I’m in the process of hunting for a good christmas card layout. We’re celebrating our 3rd Christmas married and I think it’s time (we think it’s time) to send out our first round of Christmas cards! Here’s my favorite websites:

Sadly, though Costco is by far the best deal (50 cards & envelopes for $34.99) but they lack in unique style. Minted has the best designs, but also costs the most. Shutterfly is a good mix of the two. Does anyone know any coupon codes for a good Christmas Card site, at either Minted, Shutterfly, or another awesome company? PLEASE let me know!

It’s been a crazy few months, otherwise you know I’d love to design my own card. But it’s already Dec 4th so I need to get REAL and realize there’s no time for that this year! So far I like this one from Costco and this one from Minted . (yes all these cards have babies on them, and no I don’t have my own babies so put on this years’ cards… here’s to hoping there’ll be a Gene baby on next years’!)

hugs, hanalei.

It is quite a change to come to a much smaller, more intimate school. It’s right next to Antique Row, which I will certainly post about soon. Hope you had a lovely weekend!
