The Thanksgiving Project by Sugar Paper

02-sugarpaper-thanksgivingproject_2048x2048No matter how this week felt for you (elating for some, disappointing for others, shocking to most), we can all agree that this is a month to express gratitude. It is a very powerful emotion. And, one that can lift you up. So, I am especially happy to share that the team at Sugar Paper is bringing back their gratitude cards.

The cards which were created in partnership with Casper ter Kuile, who is a Ministry Innovation Fellow at Harvard Divinity School, are meant to foster positive conversations and connection around your Thanksgiving table. A complimentary set will be included in each order from Sugar Paper (until they are gone), but are also available free for download here.

Sugar Paper – So Sweet

IMG_0028Welcome to September! I am ready to get back into a routine, after a lovely summer.

My youngest son starts school this Thursday, which will be when I finally  get organized. I’ve heard a lot lately about how September is the new January…fresh start, new beginnings and all. It’s probably why you see a lot of calendars that begin in August as opposed to January. As far as I’m concerned, any time is a great time to regroup and rework your desk, your office and anything that keeps you organized.

So, it was a a great pleasure for this “paper and stationery fanatic” to visit a shop I have long lusted after from afar, during a family trip to Los Angeles. Sugar Paper, located in the Brentwood Country Mart,  was just as adorable as I had hoped.

Signature products, from notecard sets to pencils, pens and their new  journals (which can be monogrammed) were displayed with the best of other product lines, making for a visual feast.IMG_0017 IMG_0018 IMG_0019 IMG_0020 IMG_0021 IMG_0022I came away with a few new items, including the pink Today “to do” pad pictured above. It’s my grown up version of “back to school” supplies.

Whatever you’re planning for Fall, you might as well do it in “sweet” style!


Sugar Paper x Target for the Holidays


I know what you’re thinking. It’s TOO early to think about the holidays. But, I just don’t want you to miss the “about to launch” Sugar Paper for Target Holiday collection….available in stores Nov 1st. Sugar Paper is one of my all time favorite letterpress companies and with this new collaboration, they may just be my new go-to for holiday gift wrap essentials.

In my efforts to enjoy the holidays, I want to be organized and have all my tools handy. The collection will have wrapping paper, ribbons, tie-ons and even glam boxes that will only require a bow. Available in sophisticated black, jingle bell red, neon coral and beautiful blue…there is a hue for everyone.02-SugarPaper-TargetHoliday15_2048x2048 03-SugarPaper-TargetHoliday15_2048x2048

Here’s to having the holidays all wrapped up!
