people I heart + a giveaway {minted}

minted giveaway

I have a confession to make: while I frequently utilize many of the conveniences of our digital age- social media, text messaging, and email invitations are the first to come to mind, there are few things that I love more than mailing out unique, quality notes, cards, and invitations. My go-to place for these paper goods is a company you probably already know by name-Minted!


Whether you’re looking for kids’ thank you notes (it’s never too early to ingrain the practice of gratitude!), birth announcements, holiday cards, or even art prints, Minted has you covered. They pride themselves on being the world’s premier marketplace for independent design, finding artists and designers from all over the world, and sharing their work with those who love great design.

I love that when you purchase from Minted, you are supporting an independent artist or designer; currently, Minted artists represent 42 countries! I know that when I go to Minted’s site, I will find modern, on-trend stationary, prints and paper goods for any occasion. And, today, Minted has generously offered one of my readers a $50 shop credit!

Good Luck!
