That's mint!

I'm probably dating myself by using the word, Mint to describe something that I find awesome, but oh well. I just looked up the word Mint in slang terms and it comes up a reference for the 80's. We'll I didn't start hearing it till the early nineties so maybe I'm not dating myself too much.

One of my new favorite activities that has been catching my attention for a rather lengthy amount of time while at work is going onto Minted the latest in fashionable paper invitations and photo cards. I have yet to order anything, because I don't really have any events going on in the near future, but I do enjoy looking at all of their latest design challenge contestants. They always have a different theme contest going on either designing a birthday invite for the princess of the house or a bridal shower invite for a fashionista. I love looking at all of the entries and seeing what all of these amazing graphic designers have thought of.

While on this site I not only found a graphic designer that totally fits my style to a tea, but I was happy to find out that she was also a fellow blogger.

Enter, Ciao Tay ! How cute is she! She is a petite, color obsessed, pattern loving, graphic designer from down south. She also looks like quite the fashionista from her pictures and totally a girl's girl. As you all know I'm in the process of starting my own business and one of things on my to-do was to find a graphic designer to help me with my website. I think I finally find a web server thanks to much help from Cassandra and Michelle and now I think I've meet my match with Taylor.

Now all I have to do is actually find the time to call up Ms. Taylor. With the busy holiday season and I couple of swamped work weeks we have yet to speak, but have exchanged emails so I'm hoping she'll be able to help me out with Effortless Style Interiors!

Totally your style!! Awesome. I can't wait to see those professional pics too.

Thanks so much for telling me your story on my blog today... It sounds like it was totally worth it for you & I think we'll feel the same. I'm so happy you finally got your house because I know how much fun you're having & I know that it's so much more than a house to you. We'll definitely have to meet someday because of our parallel lives! :)

ps- I don't think I ever heard of "mint"- haha I was never very good with in-words. I'm even a little uncomfortable saying "chic" even though sometimes it's the only word I can think of to use for something! haha
