Celebrate good times

Celebrate good times

Come on! We're turning one this month and are grateful for your support. That's why we're using this month's post to make it official that now through Christmas this year, we'll be offering different surprise deals. Please check in again soon, but start with our BOGO deal from 11/13 to 11/17. (No code needed!) And here's my must-try list for decorating for a celebration at home, especially when short on time with limited budgets:  1. Party favor/thank you gifts - something practical like a pen, lip balm, candle. Or something edible (that doubles as dessert!) 2. Fresh flowers for ambiance...

Full Circle

Full Circle

Dear Friend, What goes up, must fall down. But when you're down, you get right back up. Then again, that's so much easier said than done.  Fall season has always been one of my favorites. However, somehow this year, I'm feeling so extra overwhelmed. Hence feeling like there's so much weighing me down. I must admit that the strengths I prided myself in the past are areas where I feel I can barely get by in the present. Those skills included multi-tasking, organization, attention to detail, thoughtfulness, resiliency, and resourcefulness/creativity (I was once a Peace Corps volunteer who had to make...

Energy + Motivation

Energy + Motivation

Work smarter, not harder. That's something my family and I have talked about a lot, but especially more so lately. When we're feeling stretched thin, it's hard not to be more snappy and irritable. Then we end up wasting the little energy we have left trying to make a point we later realize wasn't really worth it. If you've never felt this way, please comment with your secret(s)!  Coffee has helped us get our days started: pour-over, French press, AeroPress, drip. We'll take it all. :-) But that's not what this is all really about. I wanted to take this...

Good ol' days

Good ol' days

You're just in time for our June/July post. This reminds me of the '90s when I couldn't wait for the snail mail so I could receive the summer issues of YM and Teen People magazine (don't judge!) But, seriously, I did look forward to seeing how the publishing world would justify two months worth of "swoon-worthy news" in just one issue. Be it the latest advice for handling a zit crisis, my numerology summer forecast, or new quiz on which boy band member was the one for me.  How time flies...there's something about summer and nostalgia. Perhaps because adulting doesn't...

Rainbows Ahead!

Rainbows Ahead!

With Memorial day around the corner we're getting ourselves pumped for sun, sea,  and most of all... summer + parties. In between sand castle construction and summer reads, we can't wait to keep our party favor bars going. We enjoyed setting up earlier this month for a Lego-themed birthday party (pics up on the party favor bar page.) We're prepping for a Caribbean-inspired birthday later this summer! From graduations to birthdays to milestone life changes, we want to celebrate with you. Please reach out if you have an event that could use some rad stationery favors! And while, right now,...
