We love Instagram. We check our feed first thing every morning and today we awoke to this festive end of summer party idea courtesy of Tiny Prints. How fun would it be to send off summer with a toasty treat by setting up a stocked s'mores bar in your back yard! We just happen to have a fire pit (or two) so we can't wait to invite friends over for s'more fun. Although we did like these joyful herringbone party invitations (they are no longer available), in the end we actually prefer the more literal s'mores party invitations available on Minted so there is absolutely no confusion about what to expect – no dinner, no cocktails, simply s'mores. We are especially excited that among the Minted invitation offerings is one of their free online invitations (*free thru 12.31.17) Continue Reading →

Loving these children's summer camp essentials and ideas from Minted! They are all #toocute. And since it is already mid-May, it is none to early to place your order for your campers' personalized stationery, journals, and name labels. And don't forget the stamp!
Summer camp is the place that children have the time to step back from their daily routines and discover and/or explore their passions. It is also the time for many kids to take a break from technology and revert to old fashioned pen and pencil. Although, at the time, letters home can be a source of parent consternation, we promise, if you save those letters, they will elicit peels of laughter for many years to come. We recently found one of Izzy's famed letter's home that simply read “COME GET ME NOW!” on her customized camp stationery. The fact that we received the letter at least 2 weeks after it was written proved to have been a good thing. By the time these hovering parents called the camp, all was good! Continue Reading →
