My Thoughts…

I was able to review a couple of products of my own choice from PaperSpring and choose to go stationary since my stash is getting low. I also went with their address labels since we moved not too long ago and I know I’ll be needing them with Christmas just around the corner. Christmas is by far the time of the year where I send out more snail mail than ever!

I was very intrigued by a product they offer called Sticky Stock . It is an innovative and fun paper that lets you affix your card or stationary anywhere like a post-it! I loved that I choose to have my stationary paper sent to me in this way. I can easily write an I love you note to my husband  and put it anywhere like on his computer screen without any worry of looking for tape or leaving a sticky residue! Truly awesome, if you ask me… you just peel and stick! There’s even a video on their website if you’d like to see how it works!

I am also thrilled with the quality of the address labels I received…they are going to look great on the envelopes I send out this year with my Christmas cards! I really like the selection of products and designed over at Paperspring. And I also love that they offer Free ground shipping on all orders no matter how big or small! Check them out for yourself as they just might be your one stop for all stationary and card needs!

Pear Tree Greetings – Thank You Cards {review & giveaway}

Do you remember a special Thank You card you received? It could have been from a friend, a family member, or from someone you may have impacted but had never personally met. I recall a thank you card I received several months ago from a dear friend. I was very touched that she had thought of me and personally gave me a card that I  hold near and dear during the struggles and hard times in my life.

A card as little as is holds the power to truly impact someones life in ways that may never be personally seen. A simple thank you to someone can bring a smile to their face and truly be remembered during those certain dark days in our life. It’s nice to appreciated. Honestly I think a lot more thank you card should be given to those you care about. Everyone deserves a thank you!

If you are looking for a place to purchase some great looking thank you cards, I would highly recommend you check out Pear Tree.

Pikme Papers | Little Notes {review}

Simple &  Sweet is what you’ll find in the designs over at Pikme Papers. This company specializes in notepads, little notes, tags, stickers, and photo cards.

They have a beautiful selection of watercolor images drawn by owner & artist Kirsten Reynolds to choose from. Some of the designs includes a mermaid, a lobster, a mailbox, a stack of books, a ballerina, and more.

Pik Me products are great for friends, family, teachers, and more! I know I personally would welcome any of those 100 sheet note pads that come two boxed per set, I could keep one for myself and give the other to someone I know!

I  think that the mermaid tags that are placed into  a cake are a fantastic idea for a themed birthday party! The possibilities of uses are clearly endless! I encourage you to check out Pikme Papers today.

Kind Notes review

The History Behind Kind Notes…

The first idea of Kind Notes began four years ago as a gift the Founder had made for her then-boyfriend-now-husband. She thought about the pleasant feeling of receiving a personal letter in the mail each day, but soon-after thought the long letters might just scare him away instead! So she wrote 31 short notes onto small pieces of paper, stuffed them into plain miniature envelopes and put them in an embellished jar. Her husband then began each day with a note that made him smile.

My Thoughts…

I was sent the Everlasting Memories jar from Kind Notes to review. I must state that even before I received the jar to review, I had fallen in love with the sheer idea of it. How heartfelt any of these jars would be as a gift of encouragement to a very special person in your life.

The jar I received was filled with 31 envelopes with little notes inside featuring quotes of encouragement and inspiration. I love the fact you can order the notes blank and personally write on them yourself or that you can have Kind Notes personally hand-write them out for you. Kind Notes makes it easy to find quotes and sayings that fit the receiver, as there’s an over 400 message list to go through located directly  on their site.

Overall, I love the jar I was sent and think it’s such a creative and unique gift idea. Kind Notes is a gift that is sure to make the receiver feel extra special! I can just imagine  the smile on whomever receives the jars  face each day as they open a new note.

Interested in purchasing?

Kind Notes jars come pre-made or you can create your very own in as little as 5 steps. With the high quality beautifully patterned envelopes and top quality card stock embodied into a special jar, these jars make an ideal gift that will be cherished for a life time.

You can purchase these jars from $26.00 and up directly at the Kind Notes website. Also, if you are needing refills on the envelopes, you can find those as well as other  special gift ideas.
