Deck The Halls, Y'all

In honor of what I personally consider to be the official start of the holiday season (Thanksgiving and no sooner), I am hosting a fantastic giveaway from minted. If you don't know minted you really should. They are a fabulous company and I'm not just saying that because they're sponsoring this giveaway or because they are covering the costs of my holiday cards (which I'll share soon). I am saying it because it's true. They offer beautiful, modern, well-designed high quality paper products. And they do a particularly phenomenal job with holiday cards. The cards offerings are plentiful and unique, and minted is always offering something amazing and cool that makes you say "they do that too?" Last year it was personalized wrapping paper. This year there's a whole slew of new features and products. Here are my favorites: Matching envelope designs and recipient addressing I know it will be a pain it the butt to enter all the addresses in but it beats handwriting them all and let's be honest, even the envelopes should be lovely:

Ornament Cards isn't it high time your kid (or you) become the star of Christmas trees everywhere?

Foil Pressed Cards after all there's not such thing as too much sparkle during the holidays:

Are you excited? Is your stationary and paper products loving heart full of joy and delight? I hope so because I am teaming up with the amazing folks at minted to offer one lucky reader a $250 gift certificate towards the custom holiday cards of their choice.

So awesome.

All you have to do is take a look some of minted's offerings and leave the name of a design you love a lot in the comments. If you share a link to the giveaway on Facebook or Twitter I will add your name a second time just make sure to leave that in the comments as well.

I'll pick a winner on Wednesday, December 3rd. Good luck!

And happy holidays (officially).
