Notebooks, Framed Prints, and More from {Giveaway}

Thursday, June 4, 2015
A few months ago when I was searching for some business stationery, a blogging friend told me about She had partnered with Minted to do a review of holiday cards and was thrilled with the outcome. I decided to check out Minted, and I was pleasantly surprised by the array of items.

I am a collector of notebooks and journals. By collector, I mean that I have lots of them in different styles and colors, and I actually use them. They are not expertly displayed on a shelf for all to see, but they are neatly stacked on a shelf in my office, and whatever mood I am in, determines which notebook I use that day or week.

Minted has a fabulous selection of journals, and they offer personalization on each one. From your name to initials, you can choose from different ways to personalize your notebook to make it uniquely your own. I had a difficult time narrowing down my choice. There were just so many that I loved.

I ended up deciding on these two journals. One is a very classic, conservative choice, and the other is fun and whimsical.

The striped notebook is perfect for work. It's professional and fits nicely in my purse for meetings.

The Paris-themed notebook is better suited for my personal notes, grocery lists, and to-do lists.

I thought Minted was primarily stationery, cards, other papery. In addition to all that good stuff, Minted also has an amazing selection of art, especially map art. You have the option of purchasing framed or without the frame. Again, there were so many fantastic prints to choose from. There were color photographs, black and white photos, paintings, and more. And each artist is highlighted so that you get a little back story on who took the photos or painted the pictures. I loved being introduced to artists who I can check out a bit later.

I have an affection for California. When I was a software consultant, I spent a lot of time in southern California at client sites, and I fell in love with the area. The climate, the people, the vibe. I really wanted a print that reflected my love for the state. I chose this gold foil-stamped map of California. I love the way the gold shines. This is the white, framed 8x10, but there are other sizes and frame options available.
I hung the print in my office above my bookshelf. It's a bit small for the space, but it works for now until I find a small area on the wall for it. There are other states available and some cities too. I love the way the gold foil looks against the white background and white frame. Lately, I am loving the combination of black and gold, and since most of my office is decorated in this color scheme, this print works great in this space.
