I’m a bit of a journal hoarder from way back. There’s just something about a brand new journal that’s full of possibilities. Do you have a favorite texture? I do: a page that’s been written on. Running my fingers over the indentations, the permanent marks of my stories, my secrets is blissful. Stationary in general is kind of a turn on. The pen aisle at a Staples or Office Depot? Heaven. I’m not saying I’m a sure thing if after dinner you take me to an office supply store instead of a movie, but I’m not not saying it either. In fact, one of my favorite moments with Casey took place in a stationary store while I was
caressing holding a journal. Putting pen to prettily bound paper will forever be one of my favorite activities.
Enter Minted, who upped the ante on my love of bound paper. They’ve got a little bit of everything from wedding invitations, and Father’s Day cards, to business cards. But what’s currently making my heart beat a little faster are their custom journals. Dude, you guys. I DIE. If I want a journal with my cat’s face on it? They can do that. Making good on my threat to immortalize all my godson’s funny sayings into a book that will follow him around until he’s 80? Done. The possibilities, they are endless.
So, here comes the fun part: I’m giving away $50 to Minted. I KNOW, RIGHT? All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you’d buy from Minted. Are you a journal hoarder like me? Are you a lined paper, graph paper, or blank paper person? Or are you more of a card person? Maybe you need new business cards or need party decorations (you guys, they totally have that too). Whatever it is, I’m dying to know. No, seriously. I want to know. You have until next Sunday, June 9th to enter.
Super fun disclaimer: I was gifted with a Minted credit, but was not compensated in any other way. All opinions and inappropriate feelings towards bound paper are my own.
