WHAT..... 4 Months Til Christmas????????

I was sitting with a friend during a play date and talking about how fast this summer flew by. She said, "Can you believe Christmas is only 4 months away!" My gosh were does the time go! My partner and I have 5 active kids between us, we are starting a business, and she already has a full time job. Its no wonder the time went by in lightening speed! The time has come to gear up for the holiday season because before you know it, we will be saying where did those 4 months go!!

Here is the start of our check list:

1. Start thinking about a family picture to send out for the holidays. If you're going with a photographer you may need to reserve a date. Estelle at EZ Photography is already starting to book up. Hopefully she saves a spot for ME!!

2. Make a list of friends and family you would like to send holiday cards to so you have an idea of how many to order.

3. Start looking for the perfect holiday card or holiday photo card to send out to all your friends and family. Be sure to check out our new selection of photo cards!! We are adding more as I type!

4. Labor Day is coming up and there are usually SALES!!!! Consider doing a little holiday shopping to save a few dollars and to avoid Black Friday (I personally LOVE Black Friday). This also helps alleviate last minute shopping.

Ok, here is the list so far. I can't imagine it is complete and am sure I will be adding to it. Make your own list and if you feel I am forgetting something let me know!!

Tropical Storm Fay

For us here in Florida, a little tropical storm is usually nothing I would bat an eye at. After going through all 4 hurricanes in 2004 with a new born baby, I feel like I can handle anything a tropical storm can throw at me. However, Fay is deemed to be a nightmare! As I sit here typing this post I am watching the national news reporting from the very town that I reside. "X" marks the spot of my home town which is on a barrier island along the coast of Melbourne. Here in Melbourne Beach, we received 16 inches of rain in 36 hours. Aparently it is what we would normally receive in 6 months!! A couple of towns north of here received 28 inches and flooded so badly that the national guard was called in. People have lost their homes and cars! I feel so fortunate and blessed and am so thankful to Fay for showing mercy on us b/c she wasn't as kind to others!!

Stationery Makes A Great Gift

Do you have a friend who is getting ready to have a birthday? Is mom always there to lend and ear or a helping hand? Where you invited to a party and would like to bring the hostess a gift? Do you know someone having a baby and want to give them something truly unique? Would you like you show your appreciation to your childs teacher for taking such great care of your precious little ones?
Gift giving isn't always the easiest of tasks especially for someone who may have "everything" or for someone whom you don't know very well. Giving a personalized gift of stationery is the perfect way to say Happy Birthday, Thank You, I Love You, or I was thinking of you! Check out our selection of child inspired unique prints designed by Vana Chupp and her beautiful collection of Personalized Stationery cards.

In an era of digital communication...

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." So in an era of digital communication where most correspondence is done though telephones and email, where does that leave stationery? I asked myself this question when I was offered the opportunity to start a stationery business. Though I thought it would be difficult, I was excited by the notion of bringing back excitement to an age old practice of giving and receiving beautiful, hip, modern, clean, high quality paper! I can think of a few more adjectives, but I think you get my drift. I love pretty stationery and believe the trail creates is one everyone will want to follow!
