*WARNING THIS IS THE FIRST HOLIDAY/HOLIDAY RELATED POST OF THE YEAR (Sorry it's before Thanksgiving)*
I'm sure many of you are familiar with Pinhole Press. They offer so many simple and well-designed customizable paper goods. And it's not just cards you know? They have tons of other cool things like wine labels and notepads. The look is pretty modern and fresh which is nice in a world of overly designed and downright cheesy holiday cards. So when the lovely people from Pinhole Press offered to let me explore their site and pick some holiday cards for myself, I jumped at the opportunity. Well, that's not exactly true. I struggled with it a bit, only because doing a holiday photo card with a picture of just me all by myself seemed a bit odd. I'd never seen one before and it all felt very Sex in the City when Carrie registers at Manolo Blahnik. Maybe it was just too weird. But then I thought, sure I'm single and without child and that's fine. In fact, that's terrific because it's where I am. And I'm happy and I definitely still want to send out festive holiday greetings to all my favorite peeps. So, at the risk of being weirdo single lady on a holiday card, I'm going for it. One holiday card starring yours truly coming right up.
I won't reveal the design I selected yet. But I can't recommend Pinhole Press enough. The site is easy to navigate and there are tons of choices. Plus if you're indecisive (ahem) you can upload different photos and try a bunch of different layouts before making a decision. And the site will save them all for you in case you want to go away and come back with fresh eyes. The hardest part for this lady (who may suffer from a tiiiiiny case of vanity) was selecting the picture. Ultimately, I decided NOT to take myself too seriously. Which probably doesn't surprise you.
So here's some of my favorite holiday card deisgns from Pinhole Press. I'll share my own personal finished product closer to the holidays. But until then, knock yourself out with all of their fun holiday card offerings.
