I'm Addicted To Pretty Paper. A 75 FREE HOLIDAY CARD GIVEAWAY!!



It's no secret that I have an unhealthy obsession with fine paper goods. It's true, I am addicted to paper. Flat note cards, folded note cards, mommy calling cards, monograms, embossed letters, ribbon embellishment, you name it. I practically have hoards of stationery overflowing from every little crevice in my house. Why? You never know when you're going to need to quickly write up a tiny thank you or a quick note of love and mush. 


I even have stationery stashed beneath the bathroom sink. Well, that's mostly because if The Husband finds another piece of pretty paper, he threatened to throw it out. But, as I was saying, you can never have enough stationery. 


Speaking of stationery, it's creeping up on that time of year when I begin thinking about all of the holiday cards we will send out. And not just Christmas cards, Loyals! We're talking Halloween cards and Thanksgiving cards, too! 


Here's when Minted comes in. If you haven't yet heard about this awesomely unique paper company, you're truly missing out! How could you not love a company who refers to themselves as "a haven for paper lovers?"

"What makes Minted so unique," you ask? Each and every single one of their designs is sourced from indie designers all over the world. In fact, that's what is most important to them. Fine paper and a really good design. How can you argue with that?



I was first introduced to Minted when I ordered a set of Mommy Calling cards and was just pleased as punch when they arrived. The feel of the paper and the textured font was divine! From that moment on I was hooked.

It goes without saying that we will be ordering our Christmas cards from Minted this year, as soon as I can narrow down my ever-increasingly long list of favorites! Here are just a few that are in this year's running:



"Beautifully Penned"

"Gallery Classic"

"Holiday Letter"


"Joyeux Noel and Reindeer"

"Trimmed Wreath"

Each year, not only do I stress over the family picture but the cards! The paper stock. The colors! Will I go with a monogram or perhaps a wreath? Horizontal layout or vertical? With Minted? I don't feel stressed. I trust their quality and know that our card will be a total stand out on the fridges and cardholders of our family and friends worldwide.


Be sure to check out Minted and their simply amazing collection of fine paper goods. You won't be disappointed. And when you do? 


Come back and enter to win 75 FREE Holiday cards of your choice! 


That's right, Loyals. All I'm asking is that you visit Minted.com and come back and tell me your favorite holiday card. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, you name it!


For 1 entry: Visit Minted's website and come back, leaving a comment about which holiday card you would choose! 


For an additional entry: Click to "Like" Minted's Facebook page. 


For extra good juju: Tweet about this giveaway. 


This giveaway will be open until Monday, October 24th. A winner will be drawn and announced Tuesday, October 25th! 


Happy Wednesday, Loyals!
