I am one busy mommy. Being a mom of an 8-months old baby who is now on his “I-want-mommy-only” stage, I have my hands full. I am currently juggling work as a doctor in a busy clinic, doing my blogging duties, going to meetings for collaborations with my blog and household duties (no, we don’t have a nanny or a helper at home). Adding to the list of things to do this month is planning for Naj’s Baptism which is scheduled at the end of this month. I have to admit to myself that I need reinforcement because I can’t do it all on my own. I got a party-in-a-box supplier that will provide me of party supplies for the baptism reception without breaking the bank and still make it look D.I.Y.. I also wanted to make Naj Baptism Cards but I lack the creativity and artistry. So I am very happy to discover this site: www.minted.com.
Minted is an online stationery store powered by a global community of designers. My husband and I love the site so much! First of all, I love the name Minted. My blog has minted green and blush pink color scheme. So I got won over easily. The collections are just so beautiful and resonates with our taste. We were busy the next few days looking at their collections. There were invitations and cards specifically for baptism but my husband also saw they got birth announcements cards that can be easily be customized as a baptism card or a birthday card. So far we got three options.
Dear Family & Friends, can you help us choose?
It can be in mustard or grey color but I prefer it green. We can personalised it by having it as INTRODUCING TO THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY. We love the map with the heart in it. We can put baptized at time and date we scheduled. And in the weight and height column, we can delete that and put the church and reception instead.
This is just so ethereal. This is from the baptism collection. We love the embossed gold script font BLESSED. We already have the picture for this. We have to get the earlier pictures of Naj when he would often just sleep and sleep.
We can put WELCOME TO CHRISTIAN THE WORLD. We will delete the slots for stats and siblings. We will put baptized on instead of born on. We will add in a nice quotation below the picture.
What do you think? Please tell us which option you prefer.
It is great that paper products takes 2-3 days to print and international economy shipping will take about 5 days. International priority can make it even faster. So we still can get Naj’s baptism card on time. Yey!
Minted is perfect site for you to go if you are planning a birthday party for you or for your kids. They also do wedding invitations (letterpress & foil-pressed), save-the-date cards, place cards and even inspiration boards when you are still starting to plan for your weddings. Shucks, I wish I discovered this site earlier when I was still planning my wedding. Calligraphy is such an “in” thing these days and there collections have a lot of beautiful calligraphy in their products.
They also have lovely journals, address books and planners in different designs. You can opt to put your picture and your name in front and if you are getting a planner, you can choose if you want a weekly or a monthly planner or if you want it in spiral-binding or grommets.
They also make business cards and stationeries. I been asking around where to get quality business card printed. I been needing business cards for my blog because in blogger events, fellow bloggers and brand managers would ask me for my business card and I would hand them an embarrassing printed paper that I cut crookedly.
They also have photo arts which are perfect for gifts. We are currently renting a condo but when we get a place of our own, I will definitely reserved a wall for photos of my family like below.
