**** The giveaway is now closed****
Hello October! You've caught me quite by surprise. I was pretty sure it was just August and I'm not sure how I missed September but here you are, and you are here to stay... well, at least until November takes your place in my planner.
So, I'm feeling a bit behind. It's October 4th and I haven't done a single new Fall or Halloween project. I have a list of them on my "to-do-someday" list but they are still imaginations that are in waiting. Instead I'm dreaming up other creations and even thinking about Christmas - eeek! Now that is a bit scary but that's kinda the point of my post today.
We've been busy here at my house, lots of things happening but mostly this time of year we are busy doing photo shoots. My cute hubby and I have a little photography business and it seems late August through mid November we are busy with shoots, edits, proofs and all things photo. I LOVE IT!. I love photography and I love capturing little glimpses into who people are, their family dynamics and their beliefs. Here's one from a session we shot last week .... love the message and fully know that this mom believes it.
We always try and ask our clients what they will be using their photos for. Our sessions lately have been mostly about Christmas cards. It's just that time of year. Families want photos for their cards and yearly newsletters. I'm no different. I've found myself more than once checking out websites and card designs. I've been dreaming up my own family Christmas cards and as luck would have it, I was contacted by the fabulous www.minted.com/holiday-photo-
Their designs are amazing. You can pretty much get anything you need there, well maybe not milk, but if you need Stationary, business cards, holiday cards, wedding invites.... you get it, they can do it. I've been tempted to order some mommy cards because I think that's just how all the cool mommies roll.
These would be so handy for every time my kids come home saying they want to have a play date with someone but didn't know their friends phone number. I could just send them to school with one of these cute cards and yes, then I'd be a cool and organized mom. (hahaha)
And check it out. Minted has just rolled our their new Holiday designs for 2012. I've been spending some time narrowing down my favorites. These are at the top of my list for Christmas Card designs.
I love all the stats in the left column. Our family would totally say +2 for guinea pigs.
(We kind of love our little piggies and that was a big thing for us this year.)
Or this one. I like how the "Merry" anchors the photo and is quite clean looking
And, I love the playfulness of this one - so, so, cute.
To be honest, they had so many, I was having a hard time choosing. So, while I ponder my choices, how would you like to win a gift certificate to their site? Of course you would LOVE that. And, guess what? I have one that I get to give away.
