Review: MINTED

I’m always happy to do a review when I think the product or site is something my readers are into.  Minted carries a huge selection of greeting cards, birth announcements, wedding invitations, journals, art prints, decorations and more!  Many of their designs are customizable and there are lots of options to fit anyone’s style.

One of my favorite aspects of Minted is that they use the work of independent artists for many of their designs – which adds an originality and personal element to the products.  They hold Design Challenges where artists submit their work, fans vote, and the winners’ works get sold on the site!  Pretty cool.

The customization is super easy.  Just select a card, upload your photo, edit colors & text (if you want to), and you’re finished!  You even have options for changing the shape.

I thought this Classroom Valentine I started working on was super cute.  Great idea for handing out at school!

I had no idea they also had party decorations like these – I can’t resist the gold circles.

Some pretty stationery designs.

More party supplies!

Unique and large selection art prints.

So I guess I have nothing bad to say about Minted – They really do have a great selection, are easy to use, and support independent design.  Three cheers!!  XO

Windy Days

It’s been quite windy here in the Windy City and I’ve been trying my best to remain indoors [wouldn’t want Ava to blow away –wink].  Here is some blustery inspiration so you can enjoy the beauty of the wind without it mussing up your hair.  :-)
