Work, Play, Stray - photos from the week of May 5th

Happy spring!

Mark your calendar for the HeARTalot Photamerica showcase
on May 15th. Follow @joshhailey on instagram for more information

Modern calligraphy is growing in popularity which thrills us.
We had the most lovely time swooning over this amazing
calligraphy by artist Chelsea Petaja during a recent consultation.
Her designs for Bella Figura have always caught my eye.

This week we re-stocked on some goodies for the
Stray at Home music festival and some other shows
we will be doing this summer. Our colorful
Mississippi napkins are back in stock!

In lieu of business cards, we took these frost cups
to the Stray at Home music festival and handed them out.

Debuting at Stray at Home were several new and exclusive
gold foil prints that we designed.  This one was purchased
several times and given for Mother's Day!

Adding any casual frame makes this a delight to display.

The National Stationery Show is right around the corner,
and we are anticipating it's arrival by sending a little love
to some of our vendors via a fun poem with a NY theme.

On the design front, monograms continue to fascinate our brides.
One bride had a friend in Dallas create this lovely duogram for her wedding.
We used it throughout invitations, programs, and cups & napkins.

A more contemporary monogram adorned this suite
that we developed for a bride in the DC area.
We handled the full service of stamping, sealing, and mailing these for her,
so she never even had to come visit our store!

Instagram is one of our favorite ways to stay in touch
with what our favorite designers have been up to.
I have always loved the creations of Mae Mae Paperie,
and she constantly inspires us with her color choices.

Wondering what to give the person who has everything
and is so hard to shop for? Give them a return address stamp
kit - it includes the stamper, plus a pre-paid promotional code
so they can pick out whatever design they want - you don't have to guess
what they would like!

We'll leave you with a few photos from Stray at Home
where we had a booth along with so many other talented artists.
The fundraiser was to help finance improvements to Smith Park.
The music was amazing, and so were the organizers.
We hope to see you there next year!
