paper+palette giveaway

Love a good giveaway? How about an amazing (glitter-full!) DIY? My friend Carrie, from Dream Green DIY, is sharing both on her blog today!

Head over to enter to win one of two $25 shop credits to paper+palette, and see how she glammed-up a simple photo mat using glitter and Mod Podge (you all know how I love a great Mod Podge project)!

Have a lovely day!


people I heart + a giveaway {minted}

minted giveaway

I have a confession to make: while I frequently utilize many of the conveniences of our digital age- social media, text messaging, and email invitations are the first to come to mind, there are few things that I love more than mailing out unique, quality notes, cards, and invitations. My go-to place for these paper goods is a company you probably already know by name-Minted!


Whether you’re looking for kids’ thank you notes (it’s never too early to ingrain the practice of gratitude!), birth announcements, holiday cards, or even art prints, Minted has you covered. They pride themselves on being the world’s premier marketplace for independent design, finding artists and designers from all over the world, and sharing their work with those who love great design.

I love that when you purchase from Minted, you are supporting an independent artist or designer; currently, Minted artists represent 42 countries! I know that when I go to Minted’s site, I will find modern, on-trend stationary, prints and paper goods for any occasion. And, today, Minted has generously offered one of my readers a $50 shop credit!

Good Luck!

good design in the everyday {inspired by coffee-mate} + a giveaway

coffeemate post2
I recently came across a piece of research that makes a bold claim: Surrounding ourselves with well-designed everyday objects has the power to make us more content, calmer, more inspired, and can have the same effect on us as looking at a beautiful piece of art. In short, well-designed objects make us happy. As a blogger and lover of good design, I couldn’t agree more.

Design star David Bromstad has partnered with Coffee-mate and Target, making a splash with limited edition bottle designs inspired by coffee and Coffee-mate. What I love most about this collaboration is the simple fact that by purchasing these limited-edition Coffee-mate products, you can easily add a dose of beauty and inspiration to your morning routine. The new David Bromstad designed bottles (French Vanilla and Hazelnut flavors) will be available exclusively at Target stores nationwide.

Around my own home, I often try to display and utilize everyday goods that, subtly but definitely, inspire me.

Whether it’s office supplies, paper goods, cleaning products, or yes, even my coffee creamer, adding a dose of good design and beauty to my everyday inspires, encourages, and even energizes me and my day.
