Happy Mother’s Day from Minted!

Mother’s Day is a special time at Minted—not only do we get to celebrate the wonderful women in our own lives, but also the amazing community of women that make Minted what it is. We asked our Minted community—our designers and artists, customers, and fans—to share a photo of themselves with their mama along with a fond memory or their best piece advice, and we were so moved by everyone’s submissions! Here’s just a snippet of the heart-warming entries we received; you can see all the submissions on Instagram via #mintedmoms.

1. @goosenpumpkin: Anytime spent with my mom, my sister and all our kids (8 between the two of us) is a great time. Lots of noise, Grammy cooking up a storm and playing with the kids in between it all. She is pure joy. I have never met anyone harder working, more generous, more gracious or more self-sacrificing than my mom. She is adored by everyone blessed enough to know her and, obviously, just beautiful; inside and out.

2. @smile_peace_love_creative: My mother, my guardian angel, has inspired me to follow my dreams. Her words, and her grandson, that she never had the chance to meet, have inspired me to move forward in my life.  With her passion for life prominent in my memory, I strive to push myself and follow my dreams.

3. @HolliejngAround the time this photo was taken, I remember being bullied by some kids in the neighborhood. I came home crying and my mom gave me a cuddle, some M&Ms, and taught me one of life’s most important lessons: Chocolate makes everything better!

4. @DjFalconer: One of my favorite pictures ever. Me with my Mom, my Grandmother, & my Great-Grandmother {1979}. Everyday, but especially on Mother’s Day, I feel incredibly lucky to have had them set a shining example of what it means to be the world to your children.

5. @maraboudesign: I attribute all my success to my mother’s moral & intellectual guidance. She is the epitome of grace, style & beauty. Her mother passed away when she was only 3yrs old, and my grandfather never married again. Though she never experience the security of having a mother’s love, she never allowed her loss of that bond prevent her from being the best mom a girl could wish for.

6. @Mothershrummer: Introducing my mom to a “selfie” and her smile when she sees us together! [Especially sweet] when they have dementia…. These are the moments!!

7. @jan_vilkin_kessel: My Mom-mother of 4 outstanding individuals:), was the Mom that all the other kids wanted. “I wish my Mom was like your Mom”, they all said. Everyone was always welcome at our house. My Mom was an outstanding mother, and a wonderful human being. She was a friend to everyone.

8. @leslieannjones: Even at the beach, a mom’s work is never done. So thankful for this lady and all that she’s sacrificed for me over the years. Thirty years later, and she’s still helping me to stand.
