I love beautiful things and I especially love beautiful things that make my day happier or my life easier. MInted can do both of these things and I've long been a fan. The only difficulty is choosing amongst the nearly endless choices. Everything else is easy. Minted makes ordering invitations, art, fabrics and a whole lot more so easy. You can choose the design you love and customize it to be exactly what you need. There is so very, very much that I love on the Minted site. Be it party invitations & party decor or a beautiful print, fabric by the yard for perfect curtains or pillows or even great gifts. You can even create inspiration boards that help you visualizes your choices (you'll see a few dropped in below).

I've mentioned the Minted before and I've been meaning to do a feature because it's just so amazing. Coincidentally, I was just contacted to do a review of Minted's lovely products with the offer of credit to place an order, so I can give my full impressions. So, consider this part 1 of the review I guess. I really love the Art Marketplace, but there's so many, many wonderful things to be found at Minted and all can be customized to suit you perfectly- sizes, shapes, colors, personalizations. I also love that independent artists create the designs. Their new Wedding Invitations are beautifully unique. As someone who was married at City Hall, I'm not really big on the traditional wedding plan, so these designs really appeal to me. They feel much more personal than your standard invite. They even have a print your own option which is a fabulous idea. I also adore the fabric by the yard and the designs for children, all great ways to  easily pull together beautiful, unique, customized looks for you life, home and family.

I've been perusing Minted quite a bit lately. We've been living with the bulk of art paintings, prints & photographs boxed up until we paint all of the walls in the house.  As we get closer to hanging time, I've been thinking about what I'd really love to add to our collection. What I love about Minted is that I can think of the basic idea of what I want and find something that fits. Then I can choose the size, have it framed or not and often even choose the color. Right now I really want a few larger pieces with some impact as well as maybe a few smaller abstract pieces, be it prints or atmospheric photos, to mix in with what we already have. The options to customize make Minted a perfect choice. So, something from the Art Marketplace will likely be the focus of part 2 of my review, but you never know.
