I decided early in the Christmas card-sending season that it just wasn’t going to happen last year. Honestly, I just couldn’t put together a
boring joyful card that I didn’t love when I wasn’t feeling joyful at all. I was so bored with the lame same old card selection at the mega-store same old online photo shops that I’ve been using for too many several years.
That’s because I didn’t know about Minted. Minted is an online stationery, art, and party store powered by a global community of independent designers whose purpose in life is to uncover exceptional design from all over the world and bring this to savvy consumers who won’t accept anything else.
You guys, my life has been changed forever. This stuff is amazing.
I mean, let’s forget about my revolt on holiday cards for a minute and talk about what I’ve spent hours looking at over the last few months since I first heard about Minted. Here are some of my faves right now:
- Birth announcement postcards, because, obviously. I love that they are postcards, but printed on fine, quality stationary rather than thin, cheap postcard stock.
- Journals – my girls love notebooks, so I’d love to get them started really writing. Especially Alaina, since she’s starting middle school in the fall.
- Custom Art Prints – just look at this – It’s called Family Tree Rings. I die. I. WANT. NOW.
I just love the unique and creative designs that are all over this website. I just keep getting lost in all the amazing work. I don’t even need moving announcements, wedding announcements or party invitations, but you bet I’ve spent too much time browsing all the designs. It’s really inspiring!
I also love that I’m giving away $50 to Minted! All you have to do is comment below on what you might buy from Minted if you won.
Be careful. You’re going to get sucked in. I promise.
