MINTED AND HIP HOLIDAY CARDS has some of the coolest holiday card choices (besides mine on etsy, of course!)
The design I chose was by French designer Cecile @ Paper Lounge. Love her style! 
I then uploaded my photo (I had a lot of fun being creative with photoshop to add my face to Jackie's bod to create a sort of retro-spoof card this year) The process is so easy and snag-free. You basically just pick a winner from one of their hundreds of hip designs and upload your own photo (or in my case, just my face to someone elses' photo!) You add the text desired and they send you a proof via email for approval before it goes to press.
Easy as pie, quick as a wink and cute as a bug. I was very impressed. 
Check out their site for both HOLIDAY and NEW YEARS cards. You won't be disappointed!


It has become a tradition now for me to create a new holiday card each year. I have already been bombarded with loyal clients asking me when this year's cards would be available, so today marks the debut of my 2011 Holiday card on my Etsy site. These are also available with personalized printing. For more info on personalization, feel free to contact me here. Also, the cards from previous years (below) will be available as well, so order now and get a jump on the Season!
Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone!


I started a holiday tradition last year of debuting at least one new set of Christmas cards a year.  My new "Merry Christmas" cards are available now in my store. The new card features a classic French chest topped with a marble bust, rose bouquet and gift packages. Above it, an old-fashioned banner reads "Merry Christmas".
They come blank inside, but custom printed messages are available for an additional fee. Contact me here for details.

Also available is last year's design that remains a classic Annechovie favorite. Both are available here.

I'd also like to thank my friend and fellow blogger, the ever-gracious Courtney Barnes for her mention and post last Friday.


Lately, my friend Courtney over at Style Court has been featuring some great gift wrapping ideas, as well as sharing some background on cards and holiday gift-giving. I just love how she lined the red envelopes for her holiday cards that I designed for her (above). You can check out her post and blog here. (photo by Courtney Barnes)


Holiday Interior

Cheery Christmas

This year, I have designed several holiday cards and they all are available for purchase on my Etsy site. 3 are very non-traditional with brighter colors not usually associated with the holidays, but very fun!!
Then there's the "Holiday Interior" that is classic in every sense. It features a elegant entry hall with a striped chair and a carved console table with red gift package below a mirror reflecting a holiday bough.
They all come in 2 different sizes, 4.25 x 5.50 inches and 5 x 7 inches. The "Holiday Interior" design also comes in gift enclosure size (3.5 x 2.5). Look for many new gift items to be added to my shop in the coming days.
