Happy Thanksgiving Week everyone!!! I’ve been a little MIA on my social media as of late, because life has been a little hectic lately. Not only was I not getting enough sleep as a result of Miss K’s night terror, I’ve also had an unexpected car accident. Though it was just a minor fender bender and I came out with no bodily harm, it was still a scary incident and I had to deal with extra drama because the other guy doesn’t speak a word of English and his insurance was iffy at best.
The incident was a good reminder to always be grateful for what we have and never take anything for granted. That said, I was thankful to have received my custom ordered Holiday Photo Cards from Minted. They turned out beautifully and I love the luxe card stock and the gold foil press shimmers. When I ordered the cards, I upgraded the back of my photo card to a printed design to give it a more interesting vibe and it was fun and unique.
The iridescent envelop also adds cheerful vibe with its subtle shine. Since I’m lazy and doesn’t want to hand write each envelope, I had our address printed on the back (hey, busy mom has her own hacks right?) I’ve also spotted some modern paper ornaments while I was browsing through the site and couldn’t resist myself. I was so impressed with them when I received it with the order.
They are a fresh take on the traditional ornament with festive holiday designs printed on unbendable, luxe matte coated paperboard. Each ornament is pre-strung with white velvet ribbon and finished with a silver and gold grommet. They are a great addition to the Christmas tree. What I love about them best is that they are made out of paper and I won’t have to worry about my kids breaking anything.
Also, on the day of my accident, I received a special surprise package from Tractenberg & Co. I was too shaken up and busy that day and didn’t had the chance to open it until the weekend. What a wonderful surprise it was. They had sent me Robin McGraw’s new Me O’ My box filled with practical yet fun goodies that busy moms would enjoy. How appropriate is it that the box is titled “Sometimes life is tough. Let’s make it easier and have some fun too!”
The box contained everything that is currently on her website but my favorite has to be the sticky stackers. They are cute little sticky note with 12 inspirational and encouraging messages such as “Dream Big”, “You are Fabulous”, “Be Fearless” printed on them. My favorite one? Anything is possible!! This is such a great box and perfect for moms!!
