I absolutely love this time of year! It just feels if love! I love opening my mail box, like everyday, to more and more Christmas and Holiday cards from our family and friends. I love seeing how big everyone's kids have grown and what they are so grateful for this year! From new jobs, homes, travels and of course kiddos - there's just so much that happens in a year! Especially for us! This time last year we were just talking about expanding our family, and now look at us! We welcomed the sweetest guy into our family on September 30th, Bennett Daniel!
With this being his first Christmas we realized there's something's we need to do to celebrate it right! We need to take family photos for our Christmas card, go meet Santa, find a first Christmas outfit (thanks to Aunt Mel we have one), bake gingerbread cookies, listen to Christmas music, watch our favorite Christmas movies. And one tradition I can't wait to do when he gets to be a little bit older is open matching pajamas on Christmas Eve! Does your family do that? Mine never has but I've always liked the idea, and now that we have Bennett to celebrate with I'm excited to start a new one with him.
So picking out a Christmas card from Paperless Post for my C4 Styling clients was actually way easier than I expected! I knew I wanted to share a family photo with them but also wanted to card to reflect the brand. And everyone knows how much I love a black and white stripe, I mean who doesn't!? So, when I spotted the gold polka dot design mixed with pine needs and a striped envelope I knew I had found the perfect Holiday Card! I just uploaded our family photo that I turned black and white to fit the overall look of the card better. Added our message of gratefulness to our clients, and updated the quantity and submitted the order! They arrived super fast and in a gorgeous white box. I love how it all arrived so clean and crisp. The cards are super thick and the gold polka dots pop off the card! They are gorgeous and I can't wait to send them out to my personal styling clients. I also loved the white box the cards arrived in, I know I'll reuse this box for presents this year!
Oh and just as a fun tip - I keep my Christmas list in a goggle doc so it's super easy to update all year long!
