  Back to school with Minted.com + giveaway


It’s the time of year when many of us find ourselves clearing off our desks, purging summer stacks of magazines and catalogs and making room on our desks (& in our backpacks) for fall “back to school” supplies.

The other day as I was organizing my home office, I found myself going through stacks and stacks of random, this and that notecards and notepads that I had acquired over the years. Being a professional designer, collecting paper goods is sort of an occupational hazard (said the girl with a few rubbermaid totes full of party plates and napkins!…I digress) although one that typically causes more joy that harm. As I went through this and that notecard and such it came to me that I didn’t have anything really special to just me. You know, sort of like a monogrammed card or a personalized pad. It was like my fall must-have’s were craving for a few custom paper odd’s and ends and so where else would I have turned but my ultimate favorte paper and art outfitter, but Minted.com.

IMG_7417Minted.com is a site dedicated to uncovering exceptional design from all over the world and to bring these designs to people like us; savvy shoppers who expect amazing stuff! Especially when e are talking paper and home goods…this site is typically one of my it 5 go-to for great patterns with regards to custom fabrics, drapes, holiday family cards and let’s not get me started about their incredible section of patterned lampshades…more to come on ones we got for our new house soon!

IMG_7415So…I “needed” a few thank you notes for new house warming gifts and fall happenings. I wanted a new notebook to kick off my September/fall note taking in style. Minted had so many awesome cards designs, made by other independent designers I could not pass up scooping up a set of pretzel stationery by Jordan Sondler and a custom notepad by Alethea and Ruth. Would you like to win a $50 gift certificate to minted.com for  few new school supplies for you…or your little ones?  Hooray, you’ve come to the right place.

Personally, my weekend flewby prepping for old St. Nick as well as wrapping up some fun work projects before our holiday break.

  Holiday cards + Minted.com $250 giveaway


Hello friends. I’ve heard that some of you have actually started to decorate for Christmas while Thanksgiving is just a few days away. I think the early snow put all of us in the holiday mood for sure. The other night while the white stuff piled up outdoors I was snuggled on our couch designing this years first family photo holiday card from Minted.com. It was such a hard decision to choose which card we would send as Minted has so many gorgeous card layouts even this graphic designer was impressed.

While I typically wouldn’t share a card that I am just getting ready to send off in the mail to my family and friends (what’s the point right?) my friends over at Minted.com are offering one lucky iheartcleveland.com reader $250 towards their holiday card order, so I couldn’t help but share. MORE! →
