Those of you old school readers (as in, from seven years ago or so) may remember that I have a thing for pretty paper. I don’t write about it like I did back in the stone age, but my craft room is still full of more pretty paper than I will probably ever use. Thankfully, I have a daughter who loves to do arts and crafts and she is helping put a dent in my stash. This frees me up to purchase even more paper products to make sure that we never run out.
The lovely Madeline (She’s Canadian!) emailed me to ask if I’d be interested in doing a review and a giveaway. I’ve been a fan of Minted for a long time, even though I’ve never purchased from them. I have friends who do and every time I receive a card or an invite, I marvel at how sublime their products are. If you’ve never heard of Minted, they are an online stationery, art, and party store powered by a global community of independent designers.
They are promoting their wedding invitations, as it is the season, and it being almost thirteen years (!) since my wedding, I wondered if I could write about wedding invitations. Then I looked at them. YOU GUYS. Nothing even remotely as awesome as this existed thirteen (!) years ago and then I started looking at the inspiration boards and, well. I want a do-over.
(Not on the marriage, for the record. Just on the fun planning stuff and the pretty paper involved.)
They’ve given me a credit to use (Full disclosure) and I spent almost TWO HOURS yesterday lost in the rabbit hole of their products.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because they want me to give a $50 credit to one of you lucky readers and it’s really easy to enter.
Go to their site (http://www.minted.com/) take a look around and tell me what you would spend it on. That’s it.
If you love them as much as I do and want to follow them in all of your social media circles (as I do), here’s where you can find them:
Contest closes on Sunday, March 24, 2013, and is open to residents of the United States and Canada.
