Minted.com Holiday Cards Giveaway Monday, October 10, 2011 ~ 8:43 a.m.

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty restful at home...Dale and I spent a whole lot of time working on A Paper Proposal! Most of the changes are behind-the-scenes (we switched servers) and coding stuff, but you will hopefully notice a few improvements visually :) I'm just glad it's finally done, because it took a whole lot of time! My husband is pretty much the greatest. ever. But I'm excited to launch a brand new section to the site tomorrow, with a special little gift for you guys - so be sure to check back! ;)

Now, I don't know about you, but I love a good giveaway. Even though it seems like I NEVER end up winning them - I've never been very lucky in that way! What I love even more though, is a giveaway that lots and lots of people can enter! Whenever I plan a giveaway, I always try my best to make the prize appealing for as many people as possible. For instance, I would never want to enter a giveaway to win a veil, however beautiful it may be, because I'm recently married and I already have a headpiece sitting in a drawer somewhere that I don't know what to do with! For that reason, when I was approached by the amazing stationery website, Minted.com, I thought it would be a good idea to give away something other than wedding invitations or save the date cards. Although their stuff really is amazing, and definitely worth taking a look!


This week, I'm excited to partner with Minted.com to giveaway a $100 credit toward the purchase of any holiday product. Minted offers a ton of great holiday and Christmas cards, which you can personalize with your family name(s) and photo(s). There are even some cards designed specially for all of us 2011 newlyweds!
