So I know this girl named Katy.  I think she is pretty rad.
She had me at hello when I read this post.
It changed everything for me in this weird world of blogging.  Everything.  Turned it all upside down in the best possible way.
I am thankful that I can call her a friend. 
She is a gracious hostess.  Makes a mean salad.  Agrees with me that paper straws are only good for looking pretty in a jar.  Loves her husband well.  Is a phenomenal mother.  Is crazy for Justin Bieber.  Possesses no love for cats.  Is hilarious.  Has a giant heart.  Makes really, really, really, pretty things.

Here are some of the said pretty things.
Pretty Christmas cards to be exact.
One of which is going to be our Christmas card.
Yessssss.
God bless the USPS.




Remember that big, giant, beautiful heart part?
Two of her designs are benefiting two of my favorite causes.
Did I mention they were super pretty too?
Love.
So perfect.

She even loves to make custom holiday cards.  You know, in case you are dying for a Justin Bieber card.  She can totally make that happen.  Unless it is a Justin Bieber card showcasing photos of your cat.  That is where she draws the line.

Katy has graciously offered one winner their choice of premade card designs.

  47. I just rec'd my first print from Katy's shop a couple days ago and it is absolute perfection. Packaged adorably, high quality, and looks fabulous in my home. The best part? It reminds me of things I need to remember ("All of my life in every season you are still God"...in charcoal, of course:))

    ReplyDelete
  48. The cards are beautiful.....I need to get beautiful pictures taken like hers too.

  60. I can't believe the gorgeous designs all over the blogosphere this year! I feel like I need to buy one from each designer or I'll feel bad! But if I win a design from Katy... Well that'll make me feel better :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love those cards....wish I had some professional shots of me and my kids now!

  65. Oh, I'm so excited for this! I've been intending to order something from Katy for Christmas this year...but maybe I'll win! Thanks so much to both of you.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Katy's blog and etsy shop are delightful! I have a confession to make. Last year I bought these super cute eco friendly Christmas cards at Target. I bought Christmas postage stamps at the post office. And I didn't mail one card out. Yikes. I have super adorable five year boy/girl twins that I'm sure would smile gleefully for a Christmas card to mail out - double sided - all I need to do is get them printed!!! Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  67. You were right-- she does make really, really, really pretty things!

    ReplyDelete
  68. She is incredibly talented and I loved looking at her shop. Too many cute options, don't even know which one I would pick :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Seriously! I hope I win this! I have been looking everywhere for gorgeously design Christmas cards that are Christ-centered and I think I found what I am looking for!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love that these are about Christ (rare) and that it's a digital copy! It's always such a mess to try to figure out how many cards you actually need AND then there's always those that send you a card that you didn't expect! Hello run on sentence!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Katy and her work are lovely. The cards are great, and seriously, I need those encouraging prints in my life, in every room.
    Thanks Julie,
