I told myself that this year I will stay ahead of the holiday rush! I want to buy thoughtful gifts, hang the stockings with care (i.e. buy the proper 3M hooks) and maybe even elevate my go-to rice krispie treats. My first tackle, though? Updating my holiday card address list! Getting properly festive is important to me, but as a stationer I truly love getting and giving holiday cards!
Let me share our best practices for planning your holiday cards—from your family photo to the card design, where to begin and what to consider. And as a bit of encouragement, all holiday card orders placed before November 8 will receive free machine calligraphy! (No more hand addressing those envelopes!)
Back to school season has always felt more invigorating to me than January 1 when it comes to recharging and refreshing! Maybe because it’s not so cold outside and the weather is beautiful? Or maybe it’s because the focus is more on school and work than on hitting the gym and drinking less wine? Whatever the reason, it’s my favorite season and it totally gets me in the shopping mood. Wanna see? Scroll down!
What I’m wishing for!
I’m on the “notify me” when this Clare V phone case is back in stock. I love Clare V stripes (see my office wallpaper below) and this just feels like a “boss lady” phone cover for fall!

Once you become a parent, Valentine’s Day becomes less about the roses (though still nice!) and more about creating fun cards for your kids to give their classmates. (Plus, chocolate! February 14 is always about the chocolate.) Our boxed sets are playful and interactive – you might call them light DIY. Have fun filling them out together!
We’ve done cupid-y cards for kids in the past, but as we were brainstorming for this year’s collection, it became obvious that the little-kid version of grown-up romantic love—the one we all grew up with—felt forced. Were we designing our cards that way because that’s how Valentine cards for kids had always been done? Kind of. What we learned: Kids don...
We found a few fabulous ways to display holiday cards. As creators and collectors of holiday cards, we decided to see what other folks do and how we might be inspired.
From the mailbox to your mantel and beyond, how will you show what was sent your way? If you love to give and get holiday cards, here are a few ideas for incorporating them into your decor.
String lights on the wall, perhaps shaped like a tree and clip the cards on. Clever! Add bows to hide the tacks and ta da, so darling. This looks great against the green malachite wall, but any wall will work. We think multi-colored lights would also be fun on a white wall. There is something so throw-back and fun about colored lights.
Feast your eyes on our Easter Collection. More fun than hot cross buns! In partnership with Maisonette, we created some Easter items for this Spring holiday.
When we brainstorm product ideas for our collections with Maisonette, we try to focus on two things: 1) What will be fun for kids? 2) What will be a breeze for parents? We landed on Easter Egg Dying Placemats and an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt Game!
The placemats are perfect for an afternoon activity of egg dying and decorating. If you have your neighbors, friends, or cousins come over for an egg dying party, these mats add to the fun! Kiddos can play word games, tell jokes, trade fun facts, do a maze, and draw out their Easter egg des...
