Our 2016 Holiday Card with Tiny Prints

Hi friends!!  I am so excited to have received our 2016 holiday cards from Tiny Prints.  I am in LOVE with them.

I bit the bullet this year and got professional photographs taken.  I haven’t done that since my girls were 3 and 1. Let me tell you, it was a challenging photo shoot when they were that young, and we truly only got one good shot of all of us.  Shall I say I was a bit too confident this year.  I thought to myself, “This is going to be a breeze now that they are 7 and 5.”  “Wrong,” I say now back to my smug self!

About 5 minutes into the shoot, my girls were lovingly hugging for one of the photos.  Then the photographer says, “Now make a funny face.”  My 5-year old Audrey proceeds to jump up, hitting my 7-year old Charlotte in the jaw, causing her to bust open her lip.  This is blood gushing all over the outfits I painstakingly planned to match but not be to “matchy-matchy”(everyone is as neurotic as me and does this, right?)  Then, to make matters worse, while my husband and I are taking solo shots (to let the bleeding stop, of course), Audrey proceeds to get into my purse and “apply” my lipstick all over her face.  I don’t think I will take professional photos for another two years!

That being said, our photos and our cards still turned out lovely.

This year, I went with a very simple card that speaks for itself.  I really wanted the photo to shine. We went with a personalized gold foil option and it is so chic.  Tiny Prints has an amazing selection of holiday cards, especially unique ones such as personalized foil, glitter and laser cut that are hard to find anywhere else.

I hope that you and yours are truly enjoying your holiday season so far.

Until next time . . .
