minted stationary.

i race to the mailbox every day when i get home from work and search through the magazines and envelopes to see if any of them say my name. not just say my name, but have my name written in a fun, familiar, handwritten font. personal letters from friends, new and old, absolutely make my day. the fact that someone took the time to sit down and write, not type, words to me, makes my heart smile. in a world that is always racing, i think it's good to take time to say the words we want to say. to write them down, stick them in the mailbox, and wait three days for them to arrive at their destination. the time it takes is what makes it so meaningful.

"there are many things that can change a life...a letter is one of them."

of course, it's fun to have pretty paper to write notes and letters on, and when i think of pretty paper, i think of minted. i absolutely love them. they have a vast variety of products and every single bit of it is made with superior quality. earlier this year, after changing my blog name and design, i ordered my first set of business cards from them! i absolutely love them and actually need to order some new ones soon...i'm running low!

i have also been eyeing minted's super cute personalized stationary for a while now, but there are so many great choices that i haven't been able to make up my mind and pick one! you guys know how much i love me some snail mail, and i would love to have some pretty, personalized stationary to send out to you! i thought i'd ask all you lovely people to help me choose! here are some of my favorites that i've found so far on minted's site.

#3!!!! And I wonder if we'll always be so excited about going to the mailbox?! My dudes love going out to meet the mail lady on the days we're home. So fun.

2, 3, & the last...my favorite. i'm actually pretty sure i'm smitten with #2 ;)

Madison said...

I love them all... can't decide!! I guess #2 and #4 are my favorite! I have only looked into minted for wedding invitation inspiration, but I need to check out their personal stuff too!

I love #3 and #4! They're so fun! They'd be perfect for different occasions. Casual hello letters vs. congratulations, etc. I love them all.

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

Snail mail is the best! I always get so excited when I get things in the mail from friends! 2 and 4 are my favorite! ... PICK 4 !!!!!

Jess Elyse said...

Two or three! Three is actually my favorite because the pattern reminds me of Arizona which is where I went on my first mission trip and fell in love with all things "aztec."


I've actually been looking at Minted a lot lately. I would love to get some new stationery, because you can never have enough and writing letters is so much fun! I'm also thinking about getting something for my best friend who is getting married next month; something with her new name on it! :)

Jess Elyse said...

AND I just re-checked out your post where you got your business cards...absolutely LOVE those! Love the bright yellow and then bam! that beautiful picture!

Kiki said...

They're all so pretty and I looove the ones you narrowed down. It's always hard for me to choose things like Minted products because there are so many great options. If you're still taking 'votes' i have to say that I love 2 and 3 the best. You'll have to let me know which one you choose!

Lauren Cornwell said...
