After a wedding, home purchase, bun in the oven and site redesign I am finally back up and running. Boy does life happen fast! But when you are busy and happy who can complain, right. I have so much to share with you and will make up for lost time, promise! What better way to start my resurgence than with a visit to the #NationalStationeryShow today. It is like Christmas for paper lovers. Stay tuned for favorites from the show, a new marketplace of ideas, a recap of our wedding festivities, home decorating and the planning and prep for baby #1 due September 1st. I better stock up on the #sugarfina I have a lot of work to do!
A special thank you to everyone that came out last weekend to celebrate Spring, Moms and a love of paper and florals. Lots of love and snail mail to be made by all and the uber talented Karma Flowers taught the group how to make flower cloches, each one unique and lovelier than the next. Hosted at My Social Heirloom in Upper Montclair, a great workspace for rent and Ashley the shop owner has a wonderful pop up shop of local artisans. See her calendar of other enticing and upcoming events here.
There are some great new scrapbooking papers in market right now that include special features like foil, texture and glitter. I found these 12×12 sheets that are perfect to make DIY gift tags out of. Each 12×12 sheet cuts down to 12 tags, perfect for a little Mother’s Day gift.
It is almost Father’s Day, gift your stylish Dad a pocket square and show him how to fold it.
I pulled a few instructions offline and made a pocket square wrap download the printable 11×17 template here.
Feeling really blessed today. Life is ever busy and evolving and although I struggle to keep up sometimes I have the utmost support from those that surround me, including you – for this I am most thankful and appreciative. So much is on the horizon for impressed inc in 2015, a wedding (he proposed in October!), a site redesign, a small stationery line, all good things I can’t not wait to share with you! Thank you for inspiring me to be creative. Wishing you and yours a blessed holiday. Xx Jaclyn
