Minted. All You Need in One Site

Around October I start to panic about our Christmas cards. Where will I go for them, who will I order from, who has the best prices? I look for great pictures on my phone and search for the best designs all over the internet. And then it snowballs from there. Teacher gifts, neighbours gifts, daycare…

2012

This year did not fly by for me, it dragged its ass and punched me in the face. More days than not I struggled to make it through to the next, fighting to keep my head above water. I sat at rock bottom and climbed to the mountain top….then rolled back down to the bottom….

A1 Christmas

This year is the first that our daughter really showed excitement over leaving cookies for Santa, gifts, and the baby Jesus. We might have confused her a little because now she thinks we’re going to Jesus’ birthday party everyday. It was also the first year that Brian and I had butterflies as we prepared for…

Christmas Card Fail

Every year I carefully select the perfect cards, write personalized notes inside, and send them out to my family and friends. For the past two years I have created picture cards with our family photos on the front. I have spent hours browsing through layouts and colour options, sucking back bottles of booze hot cocoa,…
