5 days of giveaways: Minted

Hoommmmmeee stretch!

A month or two ago, when Joe sleeping in a bassinet/swing/my bed started to wear out it's welcome, I decided to carve out a little "apartment" for him. Ok well, that's not quite honest. The big move was actually because Peter climbed out of his mini-crib for the first time, requiring me to set up the regular-sized crib for him, requiring me to find a place for the mini-crib. Hence, Joe's apartment. Being that our home is (small), what he ended up with was a corner in our bedroom. And he seems quite happy there, thank you for asking.



His lodgings are comprised of mini-crib and small basket containing diapers and a sound machine. It's very chic and minimal.

But every baby needs a lil' something something to make a space special so I turned to my favorite art retailer and ordered this super cute framed photo to hang above his crib. It's so bright and serene and funny. I didn't realize when I ordered the photo, but the man in red has his back to the Louvre and is holding a camcorder up to his face in the direction of the photographer. It feels like what is happening between the two of them is even more special than the backdrop. I just love it.



And that brings me toooo Minted.

I was lucky enough to win a giveaway for Minted once and I got a few framed photos and a few prints and I love them for so many reasons.

Not only is their selection incredible (SUCH beautiful photography and art), not only do they give you the option to have your art framed (HALLELUJAH), but each piece comes with a little bio on the artist including who they are and where they are from and why they are doing it. And I adore that. It feels super special to be able to buy from real working artists and to know their names and where they are from. I think it's rare to get to have a direct, personal shopping experience with art and Minted does an awesome job getting us close to that.



And soooo... wanna win a hundred bucks to Minted?
Why is this even a question?

Thank you for this, Minted!

And thank you to all my other friends in on this giveaway week! Copper Pearl, Hatch Prints, Whole Parenting Goods, and Ashley with Young Living. You were are so thoughtful and generous and we love what you do.

Make sure you get in on all the giveaways after you enter this one...

  112. From view, I think dr. wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com deserves an award for saving lives, relationships, marriages, carriers and more. I benefited from his spell, my lifestyle changed and I now live like a Queen.
    I learnt from my past experience with dr. wakina that good and trustworthy people still exist, I gave dr. wakina my total trust and heart, but he didn’t disappoint, he protected my heart like an egg and respected my emotional feelings, by telling me the truth, working according to his word and bringing back my husband at the appropriate time and date. It was as if I was dreaming when my husband, who left me for almost two years (without a phone call or text) came back on Christmas Eve.
    I was filled with gratitude when I remembered dr.wakina promised me the best gift for Christmas, he proved to me why I should still trust and hope for better days, why I should never give up in my dreams, and why I should also recommend his work to my friends and family and to entire universe, to email him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com, I promise you won’t regret ever contacting him, he is good and never disappoint from what I have seen and read about him.

  113. ED Reverser Review

    Going on a date, especially a first date, means that a guy wants to be prepared to make the best possible impression. That's why reducing the possibility of unwanted penis odor is so crucial for a man. When a guy has neglected proper penis care in this area, it can have disastrous consequences - sometimes even before the trousers come off.
