{Happy Halloween} and a Halloween Trunk Show

I recently participated in my 4th Halloween Trunk Show hosted by the wonderful Sam Robinson, held at Leo's Garage in Denver.  I love doing this show and have totally fallen in love with the charm of this holiday as a result! 
I pulled out a Trunk Show Miracle and designed some amazing new designs the week of the show. This means they didn't make it to my online shop but they will be there next year, they were received very well and they inspired me to do some fun new Holiday designs. Win. Win. Win. 
New Flat Notes, Invitations and Halloween Folded Notes 
These darling stickers were a huge hit this year... there were displayed in such a cute way in vintage jello molds all contained in a vintage wooden box.

One of my favorite quotes introduced to me by my dear Autumn loving friend, Emily B. made it onto Postcards and also is available on portrait style note cards.
"Octobers" postcards on display. 

my entire booth set up... set up in a half hour flat.  dang I am good! (I don't recommend this at all!!)

{Clever Wrapping} washi tape initials

a gift for my friend Meg...
 
a gift for my friend Vanessa-
(photo credit from Vanessa of Casa Dos Mael-love her styling!)
 
I love to wrap gifts and I think taking time to wrap a gift beautifully and thoughtfully
can make a gift that much more special.
 
One of my favorite ways to wrap gifts lately AND to use Washi Tape is to create Initials with Washi Tape when wrapping. Its a great way to personalize a gift and add some love (and it's quick!)
 
Its easy, fun and colorful!  and makes a fun impression!
 I love the patchwork look,  by mixing up different patterns with similar colors
or mixing up the colors too!
So the more washi tape varities you have, the better!
.......................................
I feel like lately Washi Tape is everywhere.  I find that it used to be so hard to find, now it is at Target in the Dollar Spot, I spotted some the other day at Staples and also even see some at the Dollar Store these days.  I saw some lovely options at the Paper Source in Denver Colorado today.  My favorite patterns always include gold or florals.  Of course I think it is great to try and support your local stationary or gift store first.

Hope this inspires you to try this idea on your next gift that you wrap!

hello hello! I have been so bad about Blogging lately! same for reading blogs! I am going to make more of an effort in both respects.  I am on Pinterest and Instagram a lot! What about you? 
The holidays were fantastic and I cannot believe they already came and went! celebrated with lots of time with family and friends and lots of good food!
I want to dive into painting and designing more. I have about 6 designs on my desk that are ready to be released this Spring and Summer.  The mermaid design above, painted in coral, mint and gold is a new favorite!  She will be coming out soon! 
I got an iPad mini for Christmas which I am loving and am finding so useful!  What's your favorite tool/use of your iPad? 
I hope to pop to more often in 2014! cheers!
