We're BIG on card sending and note writing around here.
I thank my mom, who always encouraged us to write thank you notes and sends me snail mail all the time. I also thank the fact that I moved across the country right after college and despite the fact that we had a million digital ways to connect, I became penpals with one of my fellow paper loving girlfriends, veronica.
"Can I top her last card?" is something both of us think frequently... though we probably would not admit it.
Even Ellerie has a penpal! veronica had a baby boy in December and we love writing letters from the littles to each other. Crazy, of course, but also sort of awesome (and hilarious).
So when Minted asked if I wanted to order some stationery and share about it on the blog, it was a no-brainer; my only question was if I could order some for Ellerie too.
I love the options... I was able to order kraft envelopes for Ellerie's and I added a backing design (which TOTALLY makes the card) and rounded corners to mine.
Obviously we've already mailed a bunch (and have heard back rave reviews!). Card sending is addicting. I made the executive decision that I'm going to order custom cards for the Grandmas for Mother's Day this year. If you're interested in doing the same (or just want that awesome Indio set for yourself!), Minted is offering my readers 10% off their stationery order plus free ground shipping with code BLAHA10FS. Discount works on all flat and/or folded personal stationery and kids stationery orders and expires 4/25.
*Minted.com and I teamed up for this post: they sent me the stationery in exchange for me writing and sharing my thoughts. I used affiliate links throughout this post because Minted is a rad paper company that I love and shop through often. As always, opinions shared are my own.
