There is something so special about the holidays. Doesn’t matter if you celebrate Kwanza, Hanukkah, or Christmas there is no denying people tend to have pep in their step around this time of year. It doesn’t look like we’ll get a white Christmas here in MA but we don’t need that to know that the holidays are in full swing. Storefronts are decked out with special decorations. Lights adorn trees and bushes. Christmas trees hold tightly to the top of cars. Ooohh the holidays!
Since my daughter was one we’ve created holiday cards for our friends and family. It’s always been such a fun process, getting photos done, choosing the photos, and designing the card. I have been so busy at work securing my promotion (which happened Friday!) that I have been slacking heavy on our holiday cards this year!! I usually have pictures taken in November and I always like to aim to have the design done by December 1st. Well not this year!! Time has slipped out of my hands and I’m scrambling to get everything together!
This year we’ve decided to send New Years cards (which gives us more time) and I think it’s a great alternative! I’ve gone through our address book and we’ll be sending a little over 60 cards this year – ahhhh. So I’ve got my work cut out for me, and will be designing our cards this week!
I am so happy to be partnering with Pear Tree this year! Not only do they have fresh designs but I stand 100% behind their story:
There is a moment, it happens every day, that makes us feel like kids on Christmas morning. The anticipation of something unexpected, something special. This moment happens just before opening the mailbox, hoping for the envelope that’s a little thicker, feels a little softer, and isn’t branded with bulk mail bar codes. Wishing for a card, just for you.
We at Pear Tree believe in this moment. We believe that lives should be shared, with style, at prices you can afford. We believe in the power of connection. We believe in that magic moment, the pause, that makes us all just a little giddy.
The story is in all of us. The story that bonds us. The story of You, Shared.
These are a few of my favorite designs from their site:
