Michelle, product designer at Pear Tree, lived with her husband and his roommate for TWO WHOLE YEARS after they got married and before they had a place of their own to move into. Michelle admits they waited that long “to find the perfect fit, knowing we didn’t want to go through the painful moving process more than once!” She was so excited & happy to move into her newly built home, which explains why her most important words of advice are, “LOVE where you move – to avoid future moving! ” Continue reading
We’re profiling team members at Pear Tree Greetings to show you which unique Christmas card ideas they chose and how they personalized them.
About Dani: I recently moved into a new house with my fiance, Scott, and our 5-month old puppy, Lola. We are excited to share the news of this new step in our lives with family and friends.
Card she chose: Cozy House – Holiday Moving Announcement
Why did you choose this card?
I was looking for cute moving announcements that could double as Christmas cards. This one is perfect to say happy holidays from our home to yours, while giving people our new address in a welcoming way. It looks like a Christmas card, but technically I found it in our moving announcements collection.
Did you do anything special to personalize it?
Not too much! I liked the Christmas colors and wintery theme of the illustration. Other than changing the text to say ‘Happy Holidays from our home to yours’ and adding our new address, I didn’t change a thing!

Moving to Colorado was a big change for this month’s Featured Favorite. Debby, our creative customer, wanted her family’s moving announcements to have a little more meaning than a change of address. She liked our Paint Swatch Photo We’ve Moved Card, but they hadn’t painted their new house so she came up with her own moving announcement ideas to share with family and friends. “I wanted the card to have some meaning and I’m really into storytelling,” says Debby. “It hit me that what’s important to us is the ‘color’ of Colorado because it’s so new.”
