Summer Parties

Summer Parties

Summer parties are here. I can’t believe I just typed that! It seems like a month ago that school started. Time flies by so quickly. We always spend summers in the pool with easy bar-b-ques and lazy days. Our meal planning usually consists of bbq hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken. We always have a fruit salad that gets devoured fast and usually some corn on the cob. Ice cream and popsicles always round out the day. Here are a few of our newest party invitations to get your shindig started on the right foot. You can find these at FineStationery.com. Need some party inspiration? Check out our Pinterest...

Imagine – New Year, New Outlook

Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet? I usually don’t make any except maybe a couple of silly ones, like always buy the correct sized clothes – I sometimes grab things just because they are on sale 🙂 I make a lot of lists so I feel like I cover most things in my lists. I have a house list, a garden list, a books I want to read list, movies I want to see list, places to visit list and of course a work list. One of the things we are trying to figure out at work is if we want to manufacture and sell our designs on our own as well as license. It seems like these days you have to try a little bit of everything. If you have any thoughts to share we are all ears. I’ve read a lot about picking a word for the year, to live by. I’ve decided that my word will be Imagine! Isn’t that an awesome word?! It holds so many possibilities and it can mean so many things big and small. What about you, have you picked a word? We didn’t go out of town over the break, just stayed local, but looking at my camera roll, it feels like we did. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world. Here are some pictures – from a crazy, huge, amazing rainbow (we finally got some rain here in California), to hiking in the mountains, to days at the beach. It was a great break. I can only IMAGINE what 2015 will...

Last Minute Gift Ideas

  8 more days until Christmas!! Yikes! Sadly I have not done our family Christmas Card yet. With one kid in college the photo opportunities happen less frequently. For some reason we could not find the time at Thanksgiving. So if I do a card this year it will have to be a New Years card, we’ll see how motivated I am after the holidays to get that done! 😉 I usually buy a couple of extra gifts to have on hand in case I’m invited to a party or one of my kids are invited to something. There are a lot of super easy gifts that can be had either by baking or just running to the grocery store. Here are a few of my favorite: 10 Last Minute Gift Ideas 1. Magazine subscription – This one is so easy. Just grab their favorite magazine at the supermarket  and wrap it with a note saying it includes a year long subscription. 2. Food Basket – Got a foodie on your list? Head to World Market or Whole Foods. Buy flavored oils, salts a nice balsamic vinegar and toss in some crackers or bread. 3. Food Basket 2 – Got a sweet tooth? Gourmet chocolates from Whole Foods, yum! 4. Coffee or Travel Mug – You can fill it with hot chocolate mix or Starbucks gift card. 5. Fun Socks – Perfect for kids. There are tons of fun patterns, you can’t go wrong. 6. Office Supplies – Head to your local office supply store and pick up some fun note pads, quirky paper clips and writing utensils. 7. Baked Goods – Everyone loves home made cookies, candy...

Pantone Color of the Year and Cool Designer Gifts

Every year Pantone chooses it’s color of the year. This year the color Marsala was chosen. Here is how Pantone describes Marsala, “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.” I’m not sure about all of that but I do know that it is a major transition from the colors over the past few years which were brighter, happier colors. Are we seeing a trend back towards earthier colors over the next few years? Is Avocado Green next? 🙂 Pantone also has some really fun gifts that any designer on your list will drool over! Check them out...
