S+K Holiday Cards Sneak Peek

Another summer comes and goes… I am always so sad to see summer leave and school start back up. I feel like there is never enough time to do everything. This summer seemed to fly by extra quick! One thing I do look forward to though is the winter holidays. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas! We always start designing our holiday cards in April and May which seems crazy. By the time the holidays come around I’ve forgotten what we designed 🙂 Here are a few cards from our new collection. I’ll update with links once they go live on our various sites.

Graduation Gift Ideas

Hard to believe another year flew by so quickly. As your kids get older time really does move at the speed of light. My middle daughter is graduating from high school this year so we are in college decisions and party and gift planning mode. It can be a super stressful time for teenagers to make such a big transition. Here are a few ideas for graduation gifts. – I saw this book in a magazine and thought it would be great, click here to order. You could also do Dr. Seuss “Oh the Places You’ll Go” with a special note. – How about a personalized pet pillow so they don’t miss their furry friends as much, buy here. – A pretty tapestry to decorate their dorm, buy here. – A portable phone charger, I’m pretty sure they will all need one of these, buy here. – A Shadow Box bank, buy here. Or make your own, directions here. Add some cash and fun gift cards and they are set. – A basket with handy items for doing laundry (quarters, dryer ball, bleach pen, etc.) – A monthly subscription so they have something to look forward to. There are many to choose from – snacks, a magazine, beauty products, art supplies, candy, etc. – A relaxing Spa Day before they had off to college – A photo book of their life so far. These are super easy to do especially if your pictures are on a site like Shutterfly. You can even include a few of their favorite recipes. Got any great ideas? We’d love to hear...
