Paper & pen (with some affiliate action).


I have a thing for paper and pen. Although I have been having a serious affair with my laptop and social media since back in the days of college, nothing makes me feel more free than to hold a pretty pen gently against a blank piece of paper. Oh, the possibilities! Lately, I have been noticing that my beautiful two-year-old daughter shares this interest, too –in fact she often carries a pencil and/or notebook with her wherever she goes– and I could not be more proud. Will she want to be a writer like her mommy? Or does she simply like to have a pencil in her hand at all times so she can jump at every opportunity to write on the wall or kitchen table when I am not looking?

After leaving a handwritten note for my sister last month to celebrate National Sibling Day, I decided that I need to start sending handwritten notes to others more often. A handwritten note is more personal and can’t be seen by everyone else. A handwritten note might be stashed away in a drawer, only to be re-discovered years later. Or it might be tucked away in a safe place to revisit when needed. It might also end up in the trash, but the words may be ingrained in one’s heart forever.  If I am going to send handwritten notes out, why not order some beautiful, personalized stationary, right? This is where Minted comes in.

Hold up. Yes, I am finally able to announce that I have the opportunity to work with Minted as a member of the site’s affiliate program. I get to share my own views and opinions about the lovely products featured on Minted’s site, and if any of my readers decide to make a purchase from Minted after clicking on affiliate links (which are included in this blog post), I will be compensated. Boomshakalaka! It’s really not a big deal, but I’m pretty excited about this opportunity for my little blog, especially since Minted is focused on giving indie designers the exposure they deserve for their beautifully crafted designs. Minted sells stationary, limited edition art prints, wedding invitations, personalized nursery art prints, and so much more. Let’s just say that you may need to start a new Pinterest board dedicated solely to all of the Minted products you will want to buy for yourself (and maybe others, too). As Donna from Parks and Rec would say, “Treat yo self!”

Well, I will. Back to ordering some personalized stationary for all of the letters I want to send to you. Take a look at these beautiful pieces featured on Minted:

Handpainted Botanicals Personalized Stationery

 Oh, the things I would write to you…

Lace and Kraft Personalized Stationery

Oh, the words I would use…

Hello Birdy Personalized Stationery

Oh, the way I would scribble your name…

 Love to Learn Business Stationery Cards

I’m swooning over here, and not only because Minted offers a variety of delicious stationary designs. You also get to add personalized touches, such as changing bylines, choosing the type of paper your stationary is printed on, and modifying your color scheme. I’m in love. Even better, you can use the code DAD2014 now through June 10 to receive 10% off of a personalized Father’s Day gift for the man in your life who has been a wonderful mentor to you or your children.

Who would you like to write a letter to? What message do you want to send? What words would you use?
