    I am a paper fanatic, and something tells me that if you love Paper Source as much as I do, you might be, too. I pick up cards just about everywhere I go, and I am always searching for the best stationery I can get my hands on. Of course, my favorite paper finds are the one that are unique. I love the thrill of finding notecards that I know no one else has seen before. There’s something about sending unique stationery in the mail that seems so much more personal, too.

  7. DIY Stationery Center with Guest Blogger Rebecca G. from Not-So-SAHM

    A stationery center for our kids is one of the projects that has sat atop my “DIY To Do” list for quite a while (the list is loooong). Now that the kids are both old enough to do much of their own writing (even though many of their spellings are quite creative), I thought it was about time to get it together. Teaching kids to create their own correspondence is a great way to help them develop academically, work on practical skills, and create a nice family tradition. Read More

  8. DIY Baby Announcements That Go Beyond Basic Baby Stats with Guest Blogger Bryn Huntpalmer from Modernize


    When my friend’s baby Maisy arrived, she wanted to create a more unique baby announcement since this was her second child. We decided to get crafty and involve her older son in the process.

    We started by having Hayden color some white paper with all different colored markers and then used his drawing with this flag hole punch to create a bunting flag banner for the top of the announcement and wrote “Baby” on it in pink.

  10. Spring Break Kids’ Travel Survival Kit Post with Guest Blogger Rebecca G. from Not-So-SAHM


    We’ve traveled quite a bit with our kids, from when they were just a few months old, and I frequently share our travels.

    It’s not surprising that one of the questions I get is how to keep their kids entertained en route to various places. Just to be clear, we still have our fair share of spectacular traveling mishaps (our 5-month old screaming the entire transatlantic flight home, the extra large smoothie spilled all over clothes right before boarding a plane, and the lost lovey who sadly did not share a Knuffle Bunny happy ending). I have learned a few things over the years though.

    Since Spring Break is on its way, we’re here to share how to pack a Survival Kit that will keep everyone happy. Read More
