Julep Blog and Holiday Cards from Minted.com

I'm so tickled! One of my favorite purveyors of uniquely designed customized stationary, Minted.com, reached out to me this week to ask if I would help spread the word about their fun design blog, Julep. I immediately jumped at the chance! A sponsored post for a company I already know and love - yes please!!

If you love design, Julep is absolutely the place for you. Move over Martha, and get your Pin boards ready because this blog is filled with beautiful Design & DiY inspiration for your home, weddings, and parties.   Julep is like hitting the indie coffee shop with your best hipster friend to have some comfortable conversation sparked with inspiration.  Following this blog will help you breeze through this holiday season with style and ease.

Every holiday season I'm on the look-out for fantastic hostess gifts that are a little more unique than wine or cookies.  Julep posted a simple and stylish way to thank the people who want to share the holidays with you.  These paperwhite bulbs wrapped in vintage hankies are pretty and charming without braking the bank.  Want to see more?  head on over and check out the fantastic posts from Julep had in December 2012 - there's more of this pizazz on the way for 2013.

Minted cards have a way of letting you express exactly who you are while still offering a luxe paper product.  Just check out this mischievously inspired card we created for Katie.  Minted's community of thousands of independent designers offer some of the most unique designs you'll find from a print on demand stationer.  Currently the whole gang is geared up for the holidays.

Have you bought your cards yet?  Why not pick a few of your favorite family photos from 2013 and head on over to see what inspires you!  I love seeing family travel memories flood into my mail box via holiday cards, it's like sharing in all those wonderful vacations.

find inspiration - create beautiful things - get minted

'Dog With A Blog' is a Fun Family Hit - Only On The Disney Channel

I know that you love blogs – after all you’re reading mine!  But did you know that there’s a ‘Dog With A Blog’?  Oh yes there is!  His name is Stan, and not only does he have his own blog, but he’s the star of his very own show on the Disney Channel.  
Currently in it’s second season, this Friday night hit is fun for the whole family.  Be sure to watch tonight’s brand new episode of ‘Dog With a Blog’ is a big one because older brother Tyler (played by teen heart throb Blake Michael) gets a job working on a food truck!  To make the new job more perfect, things get even better when he hits it off with the cute and cool Emily, unfortunately, she's the boss’ niece!  
Will hearts break across the country tonight if Tyler gets a girlfriend?    Tyler Gets a Grillfriend” airs on Friday, November 1 at 8:30pm ET/PT only on The Disney Channel!

The Disney Channel is a staple in our house, with its 24-hour kid-friendly shows that are clever enough to hold the attention of the grown ups too.   Even though my kids are getting older I can honestly say that we’re still watching the Disney Channel on a daily basis.   Fun family programing like ‘Dog with a Blog’ is just one reason we continue to be a Disney Family.

And if you want to read Stan’s Blog – you and your kids can find it at SeeStanBlog.com!  There you’ll find tips and advice from everyone’s favorite furry fellow, fun games, full video episodes and information abut the show.   

Go check it out – and tell Stan that The DVCMom sent you!
