Alright, so I suppose I’ll dedicate this week’s posts to the Christmas preparation season… Monday was dedicated to Christmas gift shopping, and today will be dedicated to Christmas CARD shopping!!

My friend Christine Arbogast of MakariosStudios.com is an amazing and talented artist, and has designed her very own Christmas cards that she is selling on her website.  Let me just say, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!!  Original paintings, printed on high quality card stock, and personalized with any message, verse, or even your name (makes sending cards THAT much easier).

Have you bought your Christmas cards yet?  If not, head on over to MakariosStudios.com and purchase your unique cards today!

AS AN ADDED BONUS, just for being a part of TheStrivingWife.com, Christine is offering a special gift for those of you who purchase (and mention this blog)!

  • A FREE GIFT!!  That’s right, she will send you a FREE GIFT with every purchase made!
  • A DRAWING FOR A FREE BOX OF CARDS!!! If you purchase anything off of Christine’s site, she will enter you into a drawing for a free box of cards!

Also, sign up for her newsletter to be entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to her site. Pretty great deal!

So, I need you to head on over to MakariosStudios.com, sign up for Christine’s newsletter, and check out her supply of Christmas cards and other artwork in the online store.  Maybe you’ll see something you like!  If you buy something, don’t forget to mention TheStrivingWife.com to get your free gifts!

Enjoy your day…. and check back tomorrow for this week’s version of why My Husband Rocks!! :)

Keep on Striving,

Heather :)

One Response to “Christmas Cards With a Twist”

  1. Hey Heather! As you know I’ve already purchased 30 cards from Christine. They’re beautiful! The designs are beautiful and there are a lot to choose from. I chose the design you have up and two others and because I was making my Christmas letter to stick inside I asked for the cards to be blank. They were shipped to me promptly and Christine even put a sheet of address labels in there for me!! The process was simple and the cards are very professional! An all-round awesome experience!! I usually make all my own cards but this year was struggling for time. I’m SO glad I bought Christine’s cards!! I don’t have to feel guilty about buying mass-produced, boring cards for my friends and family - I bought Makarios Studios designs!
