Go Big or Go Home

Recently Minted reached out to some of us Blogpodium attendees if we would like to review their site and product! Well...they didn't have to twist my arm in the least. I have admired Minted for their cards for quite some time, and to be frank, was a tad jealous of ALL the other bloggers who got to order Christmas cards and art with Minted. Little did I know that Minted also sells art created by independent artists. Being a mom of a daughter who loves to draw and paint, I know how much work, time, energy and soul does into a piece. Being able to support an independent artist is really important to me. So I did not skip a beat!

After browsing their artwork site, which has oodles of fabulous artwork by independent artists, I found one that caught my eye. I love black and white artwork, particularly sketches, and this piece reminded me of my European upbringing. You can choose your size, frame colour/type OR simply order a print. I ordered a 30 x 30 inch sized print with a black frame. It came matted, framed and ready to be hung within a few days of ordering. And Minted doesn't even skimp on packaging, I loved what I saw when I unwrapped the artwork!

The inside of the box!

All I had to do was find the right place for it.

This large art piece fills up this nook in my daughter's room/guest room beautifully!
She arrived home a few days ago from travelling and studying in Europe for 7 weeks, so the timing couldn't be more perfect. In the fall when she goes back to school. If she likes this piece she can take it to create impact in her suite! When you live in a rental place, sometimes if you are discouraged from hanging art because of nail holes, a large piece can create a lot of drama with just one nail hole.

Thanks Minted!
