Marvelous Minted + Giveaway

I'm the worst when it comes to pictures.

I love to take them and I love to look at them in frames around the house, but the majority of pictures I take just stay on my computer.   They're not doing anyone any good there.  I'm not a fan of scrapbooking and who honestly looks at photo albums, anyways?  Not me.

I have 198 pictures from our Christmas Disney trip.  

I've been struggling with what to do with them.  Print them out and keep them in the photo graveyard drawer with the rest of the pictures we never look at?  Leave them on the computer and look at them every 2 years?  

Then, I came across a brilliant idea in my Instagram feed.  Minted has the cutest photo collage I've ever seen.  It's 30 pictures, arranged in a heart shape, framed on the wall.  Perfect!




I picked my 30 favorites, downloaded them to the site, placed them in the collage, and voila.  

I ordered the 16" x 16" print with black frame.

I can't wait to hang this beauty in our upstairs hallway.  Our wonderful, Disney vacation will forever be preserved and enjoyed rather than stuck in the archives of my computer.  

I may do this with all of our vacations!  It would be great for school, dance, and sports pictures throughout the years with older kids.   What perfect Mother's Day, Wedding, Valentine's, and Anniversary gifts these collages would make.  They offer tons of different photo collage options and the possibilities are endless!  

While working on my collage, I took some time to play around on the Minted website.  There is so much good stuff and I could get into a whole heap of trouble if I ordered everything I like.

I need these gorgeous, personalized Thank You cards to keep on hand!  Maybe they would motivate me to practice good etiquette and actually write them once in a while!



I'm madly in love with this change of address announcement!  Maybe one day soon (if we ever sell our house) we'll get to use it!



Minted is one of my favorite sources for stationary, invitations, artwork, and even fabric.  

I've partnered with Minted to give one you lovely readers a $25 Minted gift card!  It's super easy to enter.  Just visit the Minted website and tell me what you will order when you win.  The contest ends at midnight on Thursday, March 12th and the lucky winner will be announced on Friday the 13th! Please make sure you include your e-mail address so I can get in touch with you!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because we're on episode 8 of House of Cards and it's finally getting interesting!  Are you watching?
