favorite christmas card designs {and a $200 giveaway}

Don’t you just love receiving holiday cards in the mail? I know we’re in an age of digital delivery, but I sure hope this tradition of sending actual cards in actual envelopes that you pull out of an actual mailbox never stops.

It’s about that time to start thinking about Christmas cards and Minted is one of my favorite sources for amazing designs, quick turn-around and affordable prices. And they really have something for everyone.

Here are a few of my favorites this year {how am I ever going to choose just one for our cards this year?!}



So cute, right? There are a million other great designs with fun options for colors and shapes and they even offer envelope addressing for free.

You can order your cards now

three final giveaway winners and a freebie for you

Hello Saturday! I hope you find yourself enjoying this weekend – resting, playing, creating, sharing, celebrating. I have two things to chat about today:


Here are the last three winners for the 20 days of summer giveaways:

noonday necklace // Ellen Lyle

beach body oil // Grace Adkins

lisa leonard gift card // JJ Blandford

Congratulations ladies! Please email me {} with your address and I’ll send out your goodies.


As the end of summer vacation approaches, I feel this need to reorganize, set goals and start fresh. It happens each year – does it happen to you as well?  The kids head back to school, summer adventures wind down and it feels so good to take a look at our routines and make changes to make things better.

One of the things I want to take a closer look at is the direction of JDC.  I will always blog my heart and share creative ideas here because that’s just what I love, but I also want to know what you, the readers of the blog, like best. I think I have a pretty good idea of who you are, but most of that is based off of assumptions and I might be totally off. I’m kinda all over the place with blog posts and if there are some categories that are much more interesting to you than others, I’d like to know so I can focus on some ideas more than others.


We’ve come up with a few questions that will help us get a better idea for who you are, what you love about JDC and how we can make things better. Would you take a few minutes to fill it out?

As a thank you for your time and answers, you will receive this super cute printable art print {from the JDC | Monthly August Collection} for free.

Just fill out the survey and at the end you will be able to download the pdf to use as you wish.

Thank you!

the FINAL summer giveaway with lisa from lisa leonard designs


 We did it! 20 days of AWESOME giveaways. Thank you to the lovely ladies who let us into their lives, for their summertime item suggestions and congratulations to all of the winners {your prizes are on their way!}.

To wrap things up I have a special guest who is just about as inspiring as any woman I’ve {virtually} met. She has a sweet family, a fabulous online business and is the type of lady you want as your friend. I’m so pleased to chat with


She answered a bunch of my random questions and her answers just confirm what a talented, sweet, down-to-earth person she is.



We’re in San Luis Obispo, on the central coast of California. Summer means trips to the beach, camping, ice cream at Avila Valley Barn, fresh strawberries, lazy mornings and roasting marshmallows after the sun goes down.


We all gather in our family room/kitchen area and it’s the heart of our home. But if I want some quiet time, we have a cozy couch in our living room with lots of natural light. I love to sit in there with a good book and a cup of coffee.



Story. I want to hear your story and know who you are. The heart of our stories—that’s where we connect.

{Lisa and her family have a pretty inspiring story. Read more here}.


I love DIY! This jewelry stand is super easy and functional.



 Honest, imperfect, generous, creative, loving.

{funny thing is, I don’t even know Lisa, but this is totally how she comes across on her blog/social media. I love that she is herself and that it translates over the internet}


I love creating unique jewelry and gifts. I want my designs to be truly original and fresh. When I see something go from sketch, to model to finished design, it makes my heart happy!


{See more of Lisa’s designs in her fabulous shop}

We’re excited to finish out this series with a great giveaway to Lisa’s shop:
