Spread Joy During the Holidays #TinyPrintsHoliday

The magic of the Holiday season has arrived in our household. It is one of my favorite times of the year. One of my favorite traditions is to Spread Joy During the Holidays by sending Christmas cards to family and friends. Holiday cards are such a simple way to add a smile to one's day and they let your friends and family know that you are thinking about them. Tiny Prints, 2015 Holiday Collection offers spectacular designs that are trend-forward to make your holiday cards stand out from the crowd.

With Tiny Prints Christmas Cards the process of choosing and ordering your cards is easy. I had a more difficult time deciding on our family photo. We didn't have any professional photos taken this year so we had to get creative. We love photo booths! Every year when we go to the state fair we pile into the booth and get a strip taken. I've added the strip to our family photo wall each year. Then I had a light bulb moment; I decided we could each do our own photo strip! And our holiday photo was created!!! 

After I designed my cards, I picked out finishing touches that would help spread joy during the holidays. I chose coordinating return address labels, stickers, and personalized postage

I've continued my yearly tradition of adding photo ornaments to my Christmas tree. I selected a few favorite photos taken throughout the year, paired them with Tiny Prints Holiday ornaments, and received beautiful ornaments to display on my tree for my entire family to enjoy. 

Tiny Prints also offers Custom Gift wrap. The weight of the paper is high quality and the paper cuts like magic! No struggling with uneven cuts or paper cuts! On the white paper there is a place to write who the gift is for and the sentiments reads, "be merry with, love the perry family".  The black paper has a variety of holiday jargon written on the paper and the sentiments reads, "Love THE PERRY FAMILY". 

One of the most important ways that we can Spread Joy During the Holidays is by simply saying Thank you. Two simple words that mean so much to so many people. These words are often over looked and forgotten let alone written down. Take the time, write the words down, and make someone smile. Tiny Prints has an amazing selection of Thank you cards that can be personalized. The Thank you card is the perfect finishing touch to show your love and appreciation this holiday season.

Can you think of additional ways to Spread Joy During the Holidays? Tiny Prints has given me a head start this year and I can't wait to hear the reactions of my loved ones when they get their cards in the mail! Happy Holidays!

Spooky Outdoor Halloween Decorations

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. I love transforming our home and yard for this ghoulish holiday. The temperatures in Arizona have finally began to drop below triple digits in the evenings, so one of the traditions my family enjoys is going on "Halloween walks". We scout out neighborhood homes with spooky decorations for fun. Today I have 10 of my favorite Spooky Outdoor Halloween Decorations I have found online.
