Ready, Set, Mail

I’ve been writing out and sending Christmas cards since my early teens. What can I say, I love sending mail! In all those years I’ve never once ordered pre-printed cards, but I thought this might be the perfect year for it with how busy I’ve been. I immediately knew that Minted was my destination, their extensive collection of holidays cards is always top notch.


I chose this clean, modern design by Kelli Hall, I love the sentiment. Minted also offers an amazing triple thick paper as an option, it makes your cards feel like a million bucks!


The address wrap and kraft paper envelope option gave my cards just the feeling I was looking for. My only regret was not ordering an extra 25, seems I completely underestimated my mailing list!


Happy Thanksgiving

ART: Dear Hancock’s Thanksgiving Cranberry card

Happy Thanksgiving, America! How are you spending your day? It never feels like Thanksgiving until I’ve watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, so that’s first up. Then later I’ll be heading over to my mom and stepdad’s for a feast (my mom’s sage stuffing is out of this world). I hope whatever you’re doing and wherever you are there’s lots of love, food, and thankfulness all around you.


Happy Weekend

01/ Why Tea Is So Very Magical.
02/ World’s Best Father!
03/ NYC’s Hamburger Alley all mapped out.
04/ Love these Bad Girls Throughout History postcards.
05/ Bath Boat!
06/ Wonderful Life with the Elements, an illustrated book about chemistry.
07/ This glass sculpture looks like cotton candy.
08/ Geometric painted walls.
09/ Tree Ring Lights.
10/ What do you measure? Measuring the Universe.

There’s nothing quite like real mail. A good email can be exciting, but being able to hold a tactile piece (that’s not a bill) is so much better. Opening your mailbox to a surprise card or letter can’t be beat.
