Christmas Card $50 Giveaway



Above is our card that we designed.  My daughter is having fun imagining snow falling in Hawaii.  Minted made that happen with their snow Merry Christmas design that we selected. 

MINTED IS A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF INDEPENDENT GRAPHIC DESIGNERS AND AN ONLINE STORE THAT PRINTS AND SELLS THE BEST OF THEIR DESIGNS IN THE FORM OF PAPER GOODS.

I have been having so much fun picking out our Holiday Card using Minted.com.
There are so many to choose from that I have literally tried our photos on each unique design.

Family Fun
If you're like me, then choosing only one photo can be a difficult task.  Never fear, Minted.com offers cards that not only have the collage feature but also have an added option on the inside of the folded cards where you can add a personal message and more pictures.

Overflowing Joy Christmas Photo Cards



I love their year line option and their storyboard ideas.  It really allows you to make up for all of the pictures and events throughout the year that you haven't shared with your family and friends.  Now, it's a whole lot easier and beautiful!



One of my friends who is a fabulous photographer is featured with her family all over the site. I knew instantly that this was the right place to order my Christmas cards since she has great taste and her card last year was my favorite. The paper is thick and lovely and the picture quality was bright and perfect. I am so excited to get my cards. As soon as I do I will be gushing...oh, I mean blogging about it!
In the meantime, start early and check out holiday cards at Minted.com.

Joovy Babasling Review



theBabaSling Baby Carrier by Joovy
Baby wearing is so beneficial for mom and baby.  It no only allows baby to feel safe but it also frees up the caregiver's hands.  

I tried out the Joovy Babasling this week and we are loving this hammock style sling. 

You can tell by the smile that she loves it!

It's perfectly shaped to support a newborn’s developing spine while providing essential closeness and bonding between parent and baby.  With five carrying positions and easily adjustable straps (can be worn on right or left shoulder), theBabaSling is so easy to use it can be safely shared with grandparents, older siblings and caregivers.

FEATURES



- One size fits all with fully adjustable straps and dual railings
- Fits left or right shoulder
- Five different carrying positions and two breastfeeding positions
- Allows you to breastfeed discretely
- Shoulder pad is extra-padded for comfort
- Padded infant head support and railing
- Pocket to help position infant properly
- Easy quick-release buckle will not wake
-up sleeping babies- Second safety buckle for added security 
- Made of 100% cotton, machine washable (hang to dry)

What I like is the five different carrying positions (which are pictured below).  I tried out all of them with my 3 month old.  She prefers the little joey and koala cuddle.  I love the thick comfy shoulder strap and the soft stylish material. I have many other baby carriers but none as comfortable and lightweight as the BabaSling.  It's also much easier to wash.  Also, I noticed how easy it was to travel with the Baba because this sling can roll up whereas others are much bulkier.
To view the BabaSling or to purchase one (they run between $99-$119)visit Joovy today!
