Paper Addict for Life {Minted Review and Giveaway}

When I got married 12 years ago I remember making a special trip to the wedding and stationary store. The girl working the counter asked me a few questions about what I liked and then said, “I think you’d probably like this company. Or maybe this one. Or this one.” And with each one she mentioned, she handed me another ginormous binder of options. I could hardly see her over the stack of books but she helped me find a spot and my mom and I started looking. I’m a picky person, but I’m not a very patient one. After a few minutes of searching I was over the whole process. My mom saw one that was white with silver embossed daisies. I liked daisies. I liked silver. SOLD! Now let’s go eat lunch. Compare that to my friend who got married a few months ago. She sat wearing pjs in the comfort of her house at midnight when she ordered her invitations. She could easily click back and forth between her favorites and email her husband-to-be with options. She proofed it right then and there and it was at her house the next week. Mine took something like 6 weeks to get to me. Did you know that with Minted, you can get your invitations in 5-7 days?

And they don’t stop there. Minted has something for every stage and age. After you get married, you may need baby announcements. Minted has some lovely clean and simple options and this telegram one? LOVE! And get this? They offer FREE recipient address printing so tired moms and dads don’t have to worry about writing 400 addresses!

They have birthday party invitations and decor. They have art prints for your walls. They have stationary for all ages and styles. They have graduation announcements and moving announcements. They really are a one stop shop for all your stationary needs plus they have tons of pretty things for your house. Just look at these super cool family tree prints.

But the thing I love the most? The journals! I’m a journal girl. (You’re shocked, right?) And they have a huge assortment.

Wedding journals. I really wish I’d had one of these. Think of all I’ve forgotten since then!

Baby journals. To jot down all those sweet little moments.
(You think you’ll remember them, but you won’t).

Kid journals. For you to write down all the funny things your kids say or for your kid to start his or her own journal.

When I was 16, my grandmother took me on a trip to Europe – just the two of us. She loved to travel and always bought a new travel journal for each trip. She made me keep one the whole time we were gone and I thought it was ridiculous back then, but I am certainly glad to have it now. Look at these cool travel-inspired journals.

They even have the option for lined, plain, or graph paper.
I’m a lined paper girl for writing, but I love plain paper for doodles. And I do love to doodle.
