Minted journal love

 while these images are sorta crummy,
i wanted to share one of my favorite gifts i gave the girls at Christmas.
minted carries the cutest journals ya'll, 
the cutest!

you can personalize the cover
the interior
& choose lined or blank pages.
all for $16.
they're a no brainer.
they recently listed several cute ones for valentines too.

{i can't believe i forgot to mention...
if you order now through my link,
you'll receive $25 off your order!!}

i had a great time picking out the perfect one for each them.
on the inside page you can add another image
or a little book plate design.

i ordered one for me too...forgot to photograph that one. shoot.
was out christmas shopping & they even called to make sure one of the words/phrases was correct.
excellent customer service too!

i also 
wanted to share how i presented them to the girlies on christms eve.
they each had a little silver box with a piece of jewelry to open
& one of the journals beside their place setting.
the journals are delivered in a little white sleeve.
i simply added one of the glittered letters i've had for years
from wendy addison
& the little angel wings were from pottery barn.

we ordered our Christmas cards & my business cards
from minted & will most definitely return!

you can access Minted here

Paige: Thank you so much for letting us know about this website. I just spent the last several hours checking out the entire sight and ordered two journals. Your other readers might be interested to know that I received a $25.00 when I set up an account. So.. the two journals only ended up costing. $7.00 - My total order including shipping was $14.95.

I know that you enjoy all things white, so I also wanted to let you know about Kringle Candle Co. It was founded by the son of the Yankee Candle founder. All of their candles, every scent, is white and they seem to glow from the inside. All of the labels pull off easily which means that you can display pretty jar candles without a distracting label. (My peeve!) The candles that come in pottery were made to reuse and most importantly, they smell delish! Destiny

I just bought a few of the journals. They are perfect for a small Valentine gift or to put in the Easter Basket. I got 25.00 off my order so that was even better!!! Thanks for the idea.
