Organization – May Designs

Screen Shot 2017-01-15 at 9.23.37 PMHow’s your January going?! It’s flying by, right?

We’re half way (half way!) through the first month of the year, so it’s a good time to check in and see how your calendar skills, organization techniques and goal setting is going. Are you doing well or need a quick reset? We all have to do it. Great intentions need constant tending in order to move us forward.

One of my favorite designers for making all this organization more colorful and fun is May Designs. Originally known for their customizable, soft-sided notebooks, they have everything from desk and wall calendars, gratitude journals and even fun planner stickers to keep the task of staying organized easy, creative and affordable.

One of my favorite products is their desk calendar. Once the month is over, flip over the card, cut it in half and it is meant to be used to send a note to someone. Pretty clever!Screen Shot 2017-01-15 at 9.24.49 PM

Signed Sealed Delivered

Who knew?! April is National Letter Writing Month and I for one am happy to play along! I popped a couple of notes in the mail today. 
One was a thank you note on my favorite Sugar Paper customized notecards (hot pink envelope!) and another was a bill. But, I’ve learned it’s so unexpected and much more fun to write a little note that accompanies my payment, especially if you know the vendor.
The ever charming producer of affordable, chic stationery, May Designs, is offering 50% off their notecards through next Monday. Get ’em while you can!!! Remember to stock up for upcoming graduations and birthdays. 
Another small printer, Egg Press, is so excited to encourage you to pick up your pens, they are offering a FREE kit of 4 letterpress cards. 2 from Egg Press and 2 from Hello!Lucky. Click here to learn how you can get them. Each of the cards will have instructions on how your recipient can receive their free kit and so on and so on.

Finally, I love a great stamp. It’s like a one inch piece of art and can really set off your letter. Jimi Hendrix, whose music I honestly don’t know well, just came out…and I have to say it does look pretty cool! What else can you get for 49 cents?!

So, whether you write 1 letter this month or 30….just know that you’re sending out something positive in the world. Clip an article that someone would like (thanks, Mom!), write out a recipe, doodle something funny or wax poetic.

Sign it, seal it and get it delivered. I promise you’ll make someone’s day!
