Minted’s Personalized Stationery is a special treat!

May 10, 2014

I am loving this year’s collection of personalized stationery by Minted! Each year, the designs get better and better, thanks to the growing community of designers! There is seriously one to fit every member of your family; even your kids can each have their own.

Here are my top 3 favorites at the moment:


“Sanibel Island Stripes” by Jennifer Wick
(I ordered some of these with my daughter’s name on it, and they are so adorable!)


“Sliced Citrus” by Kristie Kern


“Paris + from Stripes to Chevrons” by Emily Ranneby

And below is the children’s stationery I created many moons ago, after Caleb was first born!

a la Minted: “A luxurious treat for yourself or a friend, Minted’s Personalized Stationery is printed on high quality paper stock with designs created exclusively by independent designers. Express yourself with a chic flat monogrammed design, or opt for a bold illustration on a folded card. Choose from 7 unique shapes to make every note special. Whether you use your stationery for thank you notes or every day note cards, you can be sure to reflect your style with Minted’s unique designs.”

minted launches + life updates

May 6, 2014

I apologize for the HUGE lapse in blogging and updating my website! I’ve been busy with moving and all the packing/unpacking that goes with it. My family relocated to Houston, TX (as you’ll notice from all the minor updates to the company description) in February, waited a month for our house to be completed, officially moved in during the first week of March, and are now finally starting to feel a little settled. My office is still in boxes, but at least everything else in the house is pretty much out of their boxes.

During the last few months, a few Minted items have launched, and I finished up some wedding invitations (which I will blog about later) that I’m really excited to share with you!

First up…well, here in Texas, I feel like it’s already summer! I’m sure I will get to experience the crazy humidity that everyone seems to talk about, but up until now, it hasn’t been too bad. In fact, the weather reminds me a little bit of my childhood travels to Hong Kong, where it’s “sticky” as soon as you step outside. Some people tell me that it’s not half as bad as Hong Kong/Asia, but others say it’s worse. We’ll see! Anyway, back to Minted launches. My Summer Popsicles Children’s Art Print launched not too long ago (after some minor delays), and I love looking back at its cheery colors to usher in summer!

I don’t think I ever posted the below launch, but it’s of the Kitchen Tools Personalizable Wrapping Paper that launched last Christmas! It was so exciting to see my designs on wrapping paper, of all things! I seriously never even considered designing wrapping paper, because patterns is just so hard for me to do!

And to go along with the wrapping paper are these cute little gift tags and stickers.

And last, but not least, is the Modern Banner & Stripes Children’s Birthday Party Invitations, which is even classy enough to use on non-children’s invitations! I really love the scallop die-cut on these, it really adds so much to the invitation!

minted // Christmas Morning inspiration board

Nov 7, 2013

I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner!! Seems like it was just yesterday that we were celebrating Caleb’s (now 2.5 years old) first Christmas. I can’t wait to continue (and establish new ones!) our Christmas traditions this year, and we have definitely started playing Christmas music in the house. Pretty soon we’ll be pulling out all the decorations, too! In the meantime, enjoy a brief glimpse of Christmas over on the Minted’s style boards! Here’s mine below, styled around my Monogram Wreath design.
