Minted Giveaway

May 15, 2014

I’ve got a really excellent giveaway for you today. Minted is the sponsor and they’re offering a $250 gift certificate! Plus, this post is extra fun because I’m going to share a few photos from Design Mom Readers — photos of Minted Art in their homes. I’m telling you, good stuff today!

You probably know about Minted’s excellent selection of customizable party invitations, birth announcements and gifts. But for this post, I’m going to talk about something you might not know they offer — Art Prints. They have a Limited Edition Series, and a Custom Art Series.

Minted Art in Homes

The Limited Edition Series is Created by independent artists, printed on archival paper, and available in multiple sizes. I featured some of my favorites in this earlier post, and can also include these Abstract Circles and Dandelions among my favorites.

The Custom Art Series is created by independent artists as well, and includes options for adding words or names, and changing colors, too. Animals Alphabet, Family of Oranges, and Summer Picked Poppies caught my eye.

UPDATE: To enter the giveaway click this link. Good luck! I hope you win. : )

And be sure to keep reading to see what Minted Art is like in the homes of Design Mom Readers. Such great submissions! I wish I could feature them all.

These first three images are from Naomi Lansing. I asked her to tell us a little about them and loved her response:

“The tapestry piece (on the ledge next to the mustard chevron) was one I loved because it really looked to me like a vintage tapestry, and had a kind of homey feel to it. Living in an apartment, where I can only change so much, I do what I can to make my small space feel warm and cozy, and this print had a nice look that made me think of a little cottage. I also loved that it came in a few variations color-wise, so that I could coordinate the tones with my paint color and existing art.”

“The arrow print was a whim purchase, I just loved the look of it! I also liked that the lines of the arrows go with some of the other patterns I have in my decor. You might not be able to tell from the photo, but there’s a bit of pink in that one, and I’m not a very girly girl, so I liked the idea of having just a small dose of it. I went back and forth on whether to point the arrows up or down, and once I decided to hang this piece above my favorite chair, I thought having them aim down at it would be a fun touch.”

The next two images are from Renee LaReau. Here’s the charming reply she sent when I asked her about why she chose these prints:

“The bike print, with its trio of bikes, reminds me of my three littles, all at different “cycle” stages. Right now we have a toddler riding in a bike seat mounted on his dad’s bike, a preschooler riding a tricycle, and an almost-kindergartener who just shed her training wheels. Though our kids are at very different stages, a bike ride is something they all love. I paired the print with a photo of my maternal grandparents biking to remind us of the shared joys that connect families across generations. I believe this print is meant for a child’s room. To make it appropriate for a common living space, I chose it in gray and, in lieu of a child’s name, I added the text ‘Let’s go.’”

“I chose the wood-grain heart print to hang next to my grandparents’ wedding photo because I wanted to pair something contemporary and graphic with their very traditional portrait. I thought the olive and grey color scheme and the wood grain detail kept the hearts from looking too precious. I suppose I could have hung the heart print anywhere on the gallery wall, because above all, it’s a collection of people who fell in love!”

The next 3 images are from Abby Burba. It was fun to read why she picked these prints (Goodnight Moon is one of our favorites as well!):

“The large alphabet print in Lily’s nursery was originally intended for my older daughter Annabel’s room. I wanted something interactive. She’s 3 years old and loves her alphabet!  However, it works great in the nursery because we spend so much time in there and both girls find it stimulating!”

“I picked the print of the cow jumping over the moon as a nod to my daughter’s favorite bedtime story Goodnight Moon.”

And lastly, here’s an image from Liz Redd, and some sweet words about her print:

“I just got this flower print this week and I love it so much! I put it in my room at first but I didn’t notice it as much as I wanted to. Then I moved it to the kitchen, right above the sink where I see it often. Right in the light, on that yellow wall, it’s so bright and cheerful, I smile every time I see it. I know it was a great choice and I just think it’s so beautiful.”

Thank you so much to everyone who sent in photos! I truly loved seeing the artwork in your home and getting a bit of insight into what the prints mean to you or how to picked them out. I hope we do this again!

Goodness. I’ m new to Minted, but how cool! I’m in the process of putting together my very first nursery (we find out boy or girl tomorrow!). I’d love to find some engaging prints to hang on the walls.

I love Minted! Our master bedroom is in serious need of art!

Oh, how fun. I think our entryway needs something. We have a raised ranch, so you walk into the house right into the mid-portion of a staircase, so that little wall area stares blankly at you, and right now it’s SO boring. It’d be nice to make the entryway look inviting and intentional, haha. Neat company!

I LOVE minted, and have used their services for invitations, thank you notes, birth announcements and holiday cards. OBSESSED. Not only are the designs fantastic, but their customer service is on point. This give away is happening just in time for our big move into our new house!

Our living room walls are barren and would love this.

I’ve been eyeing a few prints on Minted for weeks now. They are exactly what I need to finish my gallery wall!

Our family room is desperate for art. Desperate. And I would like to start investing in larger pieces for sure.

I am loving their Limited Edition Series!

My family room is in need – I actually don’t have a single thing up on any of the walls in this room. It’s sad! I’d love to finally decorate with fun and pretty art from Minted!!

I love the variety of art prints available! I’m currently dreaming of overhauling my kids’ rooms to make them more personal and expressive of each of their interests. I love the children’s custom art as well as the custom family trees. And with $250, I could even afford a little something for the grown-ups’ space, too.

Although I love filling my own home with art, I’m most excited about picking something out for my nephew. I got my own daughter a piece of art for her first birthday, and I’d like to continue the tradition! So many cool pieces to choose from.

I never win anything, and this give-away would be an awesome way to break my losing streak!!

Love love love that Minted has artwork now! I have used them for Christmas cards and invitations in the past and the quality is really superior to other companies. I would love to win some artwork for the new baby’s room arriving late this summer (he will be our third so he won’t get much “new” stuff with all the hand-me-downs)!

Lovely. It is hard to pick one. My white walls scream for some artwork… and now I know where to shop. Thank you.

It’s hard to pick just one room, but my bedroom could use some new art and decor!

I’ve loved Minted for some time and think the hearts are a great pairing with old photography! We have a gallery wall of framed family photography that it would be great to put it with. Thanks!

Those pictures of the little girl’s room and nursery are so darling! I want to see the rest of the house in a Living With Kids post!

My husband is an amateur artist so 99% of what is on our walls are his own creations!

Our bedroom needs some more art for sure. I have two small prints creating a nice vignette in one corner but the walls are otherwise bare.

The wooden hearts framed is a perfect touch to a wall gallery.

I am really happy to have clicked through the Custom Art series – I will be returning for baby gifts! I LOVE the “Rainy Day” print – so cute! And the “Violet Intertube” print in the Limited series, as well.

Minted products are always TOP quality.

We just finished a quick update on our bathroom and the walls are bare. Would love to add some artwork!

I am moving in the not too distant future and am desperately trying to add some personality on a budget. These pieces by independent artists are ones I would want forever. I absolutely love Erin Deegan’s watercolor series. What an amazing group of independent artists. The design your own board feature is wonderful as well!
