In one of my earliest posts, I professed my love of Minted. Many of you are no stranger to this lovely website, but to those of you who are, you're in for a fantastic surprise...

...because I'm hosting a Minted giveaway!

Yes, that's right. You can choose up to $35 worth of goodies from Minted
I mean, who doesn't love personalized stationery?

{This includes anything you see under one $ on the left side bar!} 

Here are my current personal faves...

{Gramercy Personalized Stationery by The Social Type}




But their skinny-address labels are hard to beat too...

sigh. I want it all!
