Generously Minted - Giveaway

Raise your hand if you're ready to leave this frosty season behind! While I do my best not to obsess over winter's chilly bite, it's definitely easier to appreciate when you can find some springtime inspiration. Kind of like the gorgeously refreshing light to look forward to at the end of the icy tunnel.

So, when Minted contacted me to talk about their products, I hopped over to their website and found immediate inspiration, all with a gleam of springtime freshness and warmth. In case you don't know, Minted is a fun company that offers beautiful invitations, cards, party products, home decor and art, all from independent artists' designs. The fact that they have a Tree Planting Program that works with Plant-It 2020 to plant trees in order to supplant the paper that they use (some of which is actually made of 100% recycled paper) makes it a no-brainer to work with them.

And talk about gorgeous stuff! 

Here are just some of my favorite art prints that I'm having serious mental back-and-forths about choosing:




Don't they just pull you out of the winter doldrums?? They're all beautiful, but I'm leaning towards Float with its bright retro watercolor vibe and Indigold with its fun, floral 1960's mood...although I've always had a soft spot for Forsythia.

Speaking of springtime, Minted's Wedding Invitation Collection is sure to fit the mood of any theme you might be planning. Designs range from simply elegant to modern, graphic and colorful. No matter the design, all are of the highest quality.  Seriously, if Dave and I were planning our wedding today, I'd use these guys.

That said, aside from pretty spring art and wedding invites, I'm loving the kiddo stuff. I find myself falling for the birthday invitations (I'm mentally planning Had's third birthday already!) as well as the adorably quirky nursery artwork since both my sister and sister-in-law are expecting babies.

As always, I'm having a hard time deciding.

And, guess what. One of you will get to experience the same wonderful "I can't pick just one!" feeling. Yup! Minted.com has generously offered a $50 credit to one of my lucky readers! How excited am I?

  7. I'm looking forward to visiting my local botanical gardens- every spring my fiance takes me once the weather warms up- I love going through the gardens and taking a nice walk, and then after we usually go see a play or watch a movie- it's too cold right now to do that though! So I'm definitely looking forward to the weather warming up

  9. I'm most looking forward to taking my baby outside on walks! he was born about a month ago and i hate going out when it's cold (let alone with an infant). I'm also looking forward to opening the windows in our home and letting in some fresh air (it will probably be mid june before it's warm enough for that, but oh well hahah) :)

    1. Ohhh, I hear ya! I can't officially "spring clean" until the windows are swung open. And I hear you about taking a little one into the cold! It's so much worse for them than for us!
