This just makes me smile! We’ve got a very special guest on the blog today for our very FIRST Mini Mint Chick Feature: Miss Macey Johnston.
Last month (oh my goodness it’s already literally been over a month) I headed out to Orlando to have some fun in the sun – (though it rained through most of our trip) with Mint Chick Mary Jo Johnston. We had an absolute blast at Disney World. I shared some photos in our Facebook Group but I will post more on the blog tomorrow. But first we have to talk about little miss Macey.
When I arrived in Orlando to meet Mary Jo I was greeted with a collection of amazing handmade cards that MJ’s daughter Macey had made just for me. I was blown away by the detail and her amazing creativity. If you’ve been following the blog for a while you might know Mary Jo as Peppermint Creative’s resident Queen of Cards. Clearly the creative apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. This little girl is talented!
I couldn’t wait to rush home to photograph them so I could share these cute cards with all of you:
Macey hand made each card and included great artistic touches like the layered vellum balloons above and the hand written poem below. So sweet.
Don’t you just love the cloud cut-out windows on this one – signed by the artist of course.
I will definitely save these in a special place. Thank you Macey for the beautiful cards. I was so impressed by your attention to detail and your beautiful designs. I was so flattered that you took the time to make these cards just for me. I know that everyone who sees them will be inspired by your creativity! I can’t wait to see what you create next.
Do you have creative kids at home?
They could be our next Mini Mint Chick!
I happen to know that many of you DO have super talented kids at home and I’d love to see what they’re creating!
Give them some Minty supplies (either digital or pre-printed) and submit your kids creations by email (email@example.com) or in the gallery. It’s never to early to get them crafting.
Can’t wait to see what your little ones are crafting up!
