oh, paper!

It's been baby city for my family lately. To be specific, my sister and two of my cousins were all pregnant this spring. Two babies were born last week, with one more to come at the end of summer. And this means - yes - there were be three newborns at Thanksgiving this year. I might actually try to hold them all at once. (!!)

This also means that my mom and aunt have been busy throwing baby showers left and right. Each time, they've enlisted my help with the invitations because, although it's not technically one of the five languages, I think paper suites are mine. 

I fall for paper products like I do restaurants: it's all in the details. The little things and the ambiance are what get me. 

And although I was once an equal opportunist (Crane! Kate Spade! Paper Source!), I have become a one-company kind of woman recently. Minted has my heart in every way possible. It's a community of independent artists who upload their own designs. And they have thought of every detail - from colored envelopes to invitation liners to addressing the cards for you (for real!) and everything in between, Minted isn't messing around.  

They even have super cute Father's Day cards! I didn't use them because I wanted to hand-write my note. But if I had, I would have done a little something like this:

That's mostly all I wanted to tell you today. Other than that you can get $25 off an order (jump-start those Christmas cards, my friends!) if you click here. And don't be fooled - I'm not getting anything out of this, nor is Minted asking me to promote them. I'm just that hooked.
