Happy Memorial Day blog friends! How will you be celebrating the day this year? Barbeque, picnic, family potluck? I for one know that whatever is on the menu, it’s always fun to have some party music playing in the background.

So here is this festive and adorable radio by Evoke Mio. I’ll be adding it to my growing wish list and as always, dreaming of how awesome it would be to design one using Kathy’s gorgeous prints.

So here we are folks…3 days away from the wedding! I can hardly believe it. I don’t think it has quite sunk in yet. We are feeling SO excited and nervous and honestly, slightly overwhelmed, but mostly we are feeling really really blessed.

Our family and friends have been absolutely INCREDIBLE throughout the last year. So, for my last official ‘Wedding Wednesday’ I wanted to take this opportunity to publicly thank all of my wonderful family and friends and coworkers for making me feel really special, especially these last few months. My heart is full of gratitude for you all.

To my mom, Kathy Davis, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. You have gone above and beyond to give us what will be the wedding of our dreams. Words cannot express my appreciation.  Love you, Mom.

Lastly, thank you to all of you readers who have commented, shared your opinions and given me invaluable advice. I feel lucky to have had this platform to share with you all my thoughts and ideas.

Here’s to new beginnings!

We are through day one at the National Stationery Show in New York and it has been great! We have a busy few days ahead but we wanted to take a moment to share our booth with all of you. When we return we will have plenty of fun stories and photos to share – so stay tuned!

If you’re at the show please stop by, say hello and grab one of our give-away bags. We are in booth 2658/2759.


As a fan of all things picnic, I was excited to find this amazing Lilly Pulitzer basket during my daily rounds on Pinterest. But as it often happens while online browsing, I quickly learned it was sold out – a limited edition never to be stocked again.

So I got to thinking… wouldn’t it be fun to re-create this with a little sewing DIY? All you need is waterproof fabric and some crafty sewing skills and you could give any basket you already own a trendy update. For ideas, check Kathy’s own laminated fabric here – I’m sure you’ll find something fun to inspire you!


We’re headed up to New York City this Sunday for the National Stationery Show. If you’re coming to the show be sure to swing by and say hi. We will be in booth 2658/2759. Check out a little sneak peak of our booth below. We’re excited to put on the finishing touches this weekend!
