Minted for the Holidays

[box type="shadow" align="aligncenter" ]Disclosure: I was provided a gift certificate as part of a product review.[/box] Have you received my beautiful holiday card? You haven't? Are you sure? Go check your mail right now. Go ahead. I'll wait!

Yeah'm playing. With everything that's been going on this past month I haven't done anything that would remotely qualify as getting out cards. I guess looking at a Target postcard giving me a discount for portraits could count. Maybe.


Being a resourceful human being, I've decided I have a quick fix for this. Minted! Do you remember me telling you about Minted before?

They are fabu. Their photo holiday cards make me wish I'd taken a proper photo for the occasion.


But even if I didn't, I can still send some great looking cards. And you know what? I can send out Happy New Year's cards, right? I'm thinking this cheers card would do the trick.


I love that I can select the card shape. I also love that they have tons of New Year's cards designs for me to select from. I'm thinking of taking an awesome picture filled with the Frog Princess's laughter. Because I think that's what 2014 is going to hold. Laughter, beauty and lots of love!

I think the hardest part now is selecting a design. The bestest part is about the history of this company. The fact that they use designers and that all are welcome to enter Minted's challenges is so cool. I know some designers and believe you me, this is great. Consumers and designers then curate Minted's product assortment by voting on the entries to each challenge, ensuring that the best designers and designs are surfaced and represented on Minted. Finally, Minted produces and sells the winning designs, paying the designer a commission on every sale.

Tell me, have you sent out cards yet? Feel free to lie to me to make me feel better. I'm okay with that.

Disclosure: I was provided with a Minted credit in exchange for this post. All opinions, thoughts and design crush are purely my own. The lateness of the cards though? I wonder if I can just blame Minted?
