Back to School with Simon+Kabuki

I must admit that I love when my kids are on summer break and totally dread the first day of school. The summer flies by and there is never enough time to do everything we want to plus work and take care of house duties! I always say we’ll hit the beach once a week or go to the park or hike but something always gets in the way. We have gone to beautiful Lake Tahoe and Santa Cruz and we are going to San Luis Obispo for a weekend soccer tournament so we have been doing some things, I just wish summer was longer! We also have to start stocking up on school supplies. Every teacher gives their list and we all head off to Target or the office supply store. I love getting them some fun and funky school supplies to start their year on the right track. We designed several Back to School Collections. Here are a couple of new ones. Check for sales on back to school and the rest of our collections. Too Cool for School Collection can be found here and The Prep collection can be found here.

Every time I go on Pinterest I feel like I’ve died and gone to design heaven. I never get bored of going through all of the beautiful pictures I’ve pinned and all of the new ones I see every day. There are amazing kitchens, quaint reading nooks, colorful gardens, to die for vacations, gorgeous typography and so much more. I wish I could redecorate my house every day in a new style! One of my favorites is florals. I love all florals but especially cottage florals. Here are a few that I’ve pinned and you can check out more on the S+K Pinterest page, here. And don’t forget to check our Where to Buy page for some fun S+K designed florals.

Simon+Kabuki Holiday Sneak Peek

Screen shot 2014-07-16 at 11.44.15 AM Here at Simon+Kabuki, we spend a lot of time during the Spring and Summer months coming up with new Christmas designs. Sometimes it can be hard to channel Santa when it’s super sunny and our beach chair is calling. But somehow we make it through! :) Here are a few of our custom card designs for this season. One of the trends that will be hot this year is bright happy colors. There will still be the traditional red cards with snowflakes (see below) but there will also be lots of white with pops of bright colors. Even traditional sayings are being replaced with playful wording. As soon as these go live I will post their links.
