Raise your hand if youΒ totallyΒ missed the boat on mailing holiday cards this year? (Umm, me). I managed to bust out a few cards to my nearest and dearest at the very last minute, but totally failed at the usual mass mailing to my larger group of friends, fellow bloggers and favorite people I’ve worked with […]

    Very cute! I print out a group picture of my running team and send those out at Christmas. People rarely print photos anymore, so it’s always appreciated. But that’s about all I do for Christmas cards. But I do send snail mail during Lent. It’s my daily sacrifice; I give up a few minutes of my day to send a quick hello and mention to family or friends how meaningful they are to me.

    This overachiever ran out of stamps at 7 Christmas cards. Seven! These pretty little wonders would certainly make up for my lack of postal holiday cheer. Lovely find, Cassandra!

Last year the holidays really snuck up on me (as in, nobody even got a Christmas card) so this year I’ve been determined not to let that last minute shopping, card sending, party throwing and cookie baking wait until the week before Christmas. Thank goodness for Tiny Prints. With a list a mile long of […]

    My son is turning 6 next April and we are having a spooky Halloween theme party here. The trick or treat pumpkin invitations are adorable. I love the fact that Tiny Prints sends internationally and the cost is very very reasonable to Australia. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  2. Keri

    I think I’d go for the Journal Entry or Baby Figures birth announcements, for our new little one on the way in January!

  3. celia

    I’ve totally got my eye (and check out basket) on Quite Plaid. I’d really really love not having to spend MY Christmas money on them though!

  4. rolala

    The Embellished Border flat cards are fabulous! I would love to get some of those and some stationery cause I would like to get back into the practice of traditional correspondence.

  5. katie beth

    so many great designs! i am planning my wedding and could definitely use this giveaway! not sure which i would pick for sure, but loving the antique border!

  6. Unknown

    I love whispering snowflake! I would use the $100 towards my order of 100 Christmas cards that need to get done. We have a 2 month old baby and this would be amazing!

  7. Unknown

    in love with the holiday return address labels. i always look for ways to dress up the outside of a boring white envelope! the custom stamp has been on my wish list for awhile now too! and who knows….maybe i will need some save the dates in the near future πŸ™‚

  8. seaj636

    I love the calendars! They would make such great gifts and you can personalize certain dates–how wonderful!

  9. Elisabeth

    I think I would choose the Joyful Highlights card. So cute! I have never sent holiday cards before and would LOVE to do so this year. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  10. ashley

    LOVE the Chic Sophistication card… and I have the perfect photo! Great giveaway, love Tiny Prints.

  13. aimee

    Tiny Prints has so many great options. I have been one of their customers for so long … they have cutest birth announcements! This time, I’d go for the Holiday photo cards. The chilly branch design seems just about perfect. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  14. T

    I LOVE Tiny Prints and have ordered a ton of stuff from them before! Their quality is superb and I am very very very excited about this giveaway! Thanks for hosting it!

    My $100 would most definitely be going to the Merry Slant holiday card! I lurrrve it so much! If I don’t win, I may just end up getting it anyway!

    PS Thanks for the reminder to get onto my holiday cards! Must start getting addresses organized, stat!! πŸ™‚

  15. Meghan

    Historic Charm : Kiwi is my choice–love the flip photo aspect! Although if I didn’t want to include a photo I really like your choice too, nice and simple.

  16. Jess

    My fave is Banner of Dreams. I would likely spend $100 on cards to send family and all those folks I still owe baby gift thank you cards to.

  17. Kate {domestikatedlife}

    I would definitely order holiday invites for my annual New Years Eve party, they have some really cute ones!

  18. Cait

    Love and Cheer, Banner of Dreams,
    too many to pick! My husband and I just got married in June and want to send out Christmas cards this a Mr

  19. Amanda @ Simple Street

    I lOVE the banner of dreams card ( It’s amazing. We just got married so I’m really looking forward to sending out christmas cards this year =) Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  20. Joanna

    I think I’d go with “Divine Night,” but I like “Blissful Christmas” and “Noel Night Sky” as well.

  21. Jeannine @ Small and Chic

    I’ve been so busy at work and with wedding planning that I haven’t ordered our Christmas cards!

    I was looking for something a little different and I found plenty of options on Tiny Prints. The Thistle Pattern might be my favorite. I love the rounded corners and the fact that the back has a design on it.

    smallchic {at} gmail

  22. Katy

    That’s an easy answer for me! I adore all the cards that were designed by the Rifle Paper Co. Festive Wishes in Olive is my favorite today. I would spend the $100 on holiday cards and a few photo gifts. Love Tiny Prints!

  23. charms

    I love the soft snow: basil card! I’d use this towards birth announcements for our first baby due any day! πŸ™‚

  24. April T.

    There are so many great designs to choose from! I really like the ‘Colorful Letters’ and the ‘Simple Merry’. If I won, I’d like to use the prize to get some Christmas cards and a return address stamp…I’ve always wanted one of those.

  25. Vanessa C. Kepp

    I love Classy Wishes!

    We used Tiny Prints last year and loved them. Can’t wait to put our wedding pictures on this years cards!

  26. Ashleigh

    I’d love to send the Banner of Dreams design using one of our engagement photos we just got back! It’d be the perfect way to share our love with our family and friends for the holidays!

  27. Katie and Jayne

    What a GREAT giveaway! I would choose “Be Blessed” or “Sweet Stitches.” Thanks! Your cards are gorgeous too!

  28. Lauren

    I like the gingerbread party and the sweet sweaters cards. we’re hosting an ugly sweater/cookie decorating party so either would be perfect. thanks for the great giveaway!

  29. Liz

    My favorite has got to be the Banner of Dreams! So simple and beautiful on the front – perfect for a holiday family photo – and the pattern on the back is just so chic and perfect!

  30. michelle

    I adore the Deco Type, Banner of Dreams, Edgy Name…The list goes on and on! I’ve been on the site for close to an hour now!

  31. Bunkey

    I LOVE the Retro Wishes design. The $100 would go towards creating our very first Christmas cards are Mr.

  32. Sandra

    Partridge Pear Tree is super cute, and I love the more sophisticated designs as well, like the Luxuriant Wreath card and the one you chose. Gorgeous designs!

  33. guitarpicksandbobbypins

    These Christmas Cards are SO CUTE! The Banner of Dreams card is my favorite! I can’t wait to put one of our wedding pictures on the front! πŸ™‚

  35. MCC

    I love Tiny Prints so much! My favorite is the Banner of Dreams style, with the Sweet Watercolor being a close second.

    All that’s missing is that perfect washed out wintery picture!

  36. Diane

    I would re gift your wonderful giveaway to my son and daughter in law who are having a baby boy due on Christmas Day! “Plush Presents” would be perfect for Christmas/New Years and a Baby Announcement all in one!

    Love Banner of Dreams. Also the custom stamps and photo books would make great gifts!

    larkspurpurple (at)

  38. me

    I must do christmas cards this years as last year na nope didnt get it done. This are perfect. I love the photo ones but we have a blended family and are not married so it gets tricky as to not offend anyone.
    Hope I win

  39. John

    Love the Retro Wishes. We have an extensive list of family and friends we like to wish the best during the holidays. $100 covers a lot of that. πŸ™‚

  40. justmanette

    I LOVE Fantasy snowflake and Everything is gravy. Then again, I love them all! Best company for card design EVER!

  41. null

    So many great choices! I feel like I need our photo selected before I pick a card, but my faves so far are Banner of Dreams and Retro Wishes.

  42. Laura

    I’m pregnant with my first baby, due in January, so I’d choose birth announcements – I love the Baby Bouquets: Lightest Turquoise card!

  43. christina {simply modern weddings}

    for the holidays i love the noel stripes! but for our 1st baby that’s due in march i would spend it on the bright hello birth announcement!!

  44. DiamondsInMyCoffee

    So many gorgeous styles to choose from! I think I’d have to go with the Sweet Watercolor in Evergreen as my favorite.

    I’d be spending that $100 on a whole bunch of those as a way to remind family and friends near or far that they’re in my thoughts during the Holidays!

  45. elissa :: ebb

    i’ve seen the ‘banner of dreams’ floating around on pinterest and i absolutely love it. being recently engaged (!!) i’d love to send that out as our first christmas card together. and $100 to make that happen wouldn’t hurt! crossing my fingers. have a great weekend!

  47. Monique

    I love the Sophisticated Cheer cards and would use every cent to get as many of them as I could to send my holiday cheer, Thanks

  48. null

    We love ‘Counted Blessings’ – great inspiration on the back of the card. I plan to use a photo of my 5 year old son on El Matador beach (we just got back!)

  49. null

    I have an adorable Golden Retriever that would look so good on the “Patterned Delight: Kiwi”. love this company!!

  50. Katharine

    Oh I hope I win! This is my baby’s first Christmas!! I love Love and Cheer, Wonderful Things, Simply Merry..and on and on! It all depends on the photo we get this weekend, wish us luck! (Good ole’ Dad is doing it!)

I am absolutely loving these beautiful save-the-date cards from Spencer Studio, who just launched their new website…They’d be absolutely perfect for any fine fete! Like… perhaps a house warming party? (*ahem*). I may just have to commission a little something!

Hey Sailors, It’s Allison here from The Social Type. I’m stationery obsessed and would love to share a bit of my world with you. With all this warm weather in Los Angeles, I totally have summer on the brain, which means my entire wardrobe is full on navy and white stripes. Lately I’ve seen a […]

    I love the ‘Hey Sailor’ one and the one that looks water colored with the red striped envelope! Sailor items just make me happy. πŸ™‚

  2. Her name was Lola

    I’m leaving for the Côte D’Azur on Saturday and would love to bring any one of these anchor notes to write my family from the yacht we’re staying on! How lovely. xo Lola

    very cute! Check out Boatman Geller when you get a chance too, they have some great nautical and beach designs. You can find them on the web, and on facebook

    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, donÒ€ℒt know how to cook or clean, donÒ€ℒt want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    what super adorable stationery! great for summer BBQs and long weekend parties! i wish i owned a boat

I was very happy to spend a few sunny evenings this weekend with my girl Kelley, who is officially making her move to the NYC in a matter of weeks (we’ll miss her so much!). Which begs the question…Which coast is the best coast? I’m a born (in Santa Monica) and raised (in Seattle) west […]

  1. Luciane at

    Wow.. hard question! Especially for me, since I live in canada! πŸ™‚ But when it comes to Canada, I must say that I LOVE the west coast. I live in the east now and I miss Vancouver so much. It’s more peaceful, life is more fun and relaxed. Everything is more on the go in the east and it’s colder also.
    Although I love our lobster here! πŸ™‚

    Wishing you a very blessed week!

    I’ve lived in the “Fourth” coast area (Texas — yes, we have a coast too!) for eons. Love NYC and so many East Coast areas. But I’ve dreamed of being a California girl since third grade. Love Carmel and Monterey Bay, Newport Beach and all the sunny California beaches. I’d give up square footage to live in a quaint bungalow or cottage on the West Coast any day — as long as someone else is paying for it. Can’t beat the cost of living and taxes here on the Third Coast.

  3. chanteusevca

    Have mercy! I meant Third Coast — I’m sleep deprived and should not have answered without some caffeine assistance. So sorry!

  4. Jenie

    I love both coasts, but I feel like I have to take a stand for the Midwest here and say…

    …there’s no coast like no coast. πŸ˜‰

  5. Allison

    Wow, this is a question I’ve been asking myself for a few months now. I’m an East Coast girl born and raised–my whole life is here–but lately I have been struggling with the itch to move West (although, it has waned a bit now that the weather in New York is getting warmer). I admit that I have the best of both worlds where I am situated on Long Island…a short drive to the east and I am lounging on the beaches of the Hamptons, a train ride to the west and I am taking in the sights and sounds of the West Village. Even though I’m pretty content at the moment, I still can’t help but think that the second I hear another one of those weather reports calling for 36″ of snow I’m going to pack my bags and move it on down to SoCal.

  6. Lindsey

    I love these prints! I’m from the DC area but went to college in SoCal and while I had sort of planned the move to CA to be a permanent one, once I was there I realized I was too much of an east coaster for Orange County! While I’ll always have a soft spot for CA, I’m now back in DC with a new appreciation for seasons and all things east coast!

  7. sleaf

    I was born and raised in Seattle and currently live in Philadelphia – I love the east coast but am so so thankful to have grown up with a mountain view, an ocean view and a forest view. I love the energy I get from the East Coast and the perspective I get when I go back West. I’m so excited to explore the South and Mid-West in the coming years as well as spend more time in those lovely western states.

  8. April

    Love the bustle of the East Coast. The varied geography of Cali is amazing. But…. I’ll take our SW Florida Gulf Coast chillin attitude

  9. Andrea Reh

    So I know this really only applies to Americans… but I’ma go right ahead and say East Coast (of NZ) for me.

    Andrea x

  10. cassandra @ coco kelley

    i’m loving everyone’s heartfelt answers and how many of you have experienced so many different areas too! cait, i think you’re right… and i consider myself lucky enough to have friends at both ends to visit either way!

  11. Corinna

    california girl through and through. and married a california boy. so i think we will never leave! both of our parents are in the state, and I can’t imagine a life away from my family!

    (p.s. I haven’t really done the east coast, but from what I hear about the cold winters, I would not be able to handle it!)

  12. Amanda

    Oh gosh, definitely the West Coast! πŸ™‚ Northern California and Oregon girl here, although I did spend my college years in the Midwest and all my immediate family now lives on the East Coast. While the rest of the country has its perks, this is home πŸ™‚

  13. cait emond

    I am an East Coast girl anxiously preparing to move to the West Coast this fall. I live in Boston and love this city with all my heart but NEED to see what all the hype is about over there.

    I think the answer to this question depends on where you are now. Similarly to how girls with curly hair wish they had straight and girls with straight hair would do anything for a few curls. You always desire what you can’t have (or where you don’t live) πŸ˜‰

  14. Maggie Rose

    I might not have a fair place to judge from – I’ve never been farther east than Chicago. But I love Seattle, even the rain. I feel completely at home here. I would like to visit NYC and Maine though. Maine has always sounded nice.

  15. Golden Girl Olive

    I live on the West Coast, (and love places like SF, Montecito, Vancouver, and Seattle) was born in the South, and raised in the Midwest…but I think my heart will always belong to NYC. There’s something about the energy in the air there that you just cannot find anywhere else.


  16. Estelle

    Love New York and Boston but my heart belongs to California, Santa Cruz beaches will always own me. What a great question…

  17. katie kate.

    i’m a midwest girl, through and through. i’ve lived on both the east and west coasts and my heart remains with the midwest. i’m one of those midwest farmers daughters…
