Designers Care: Hurricane Sandy Support

Much like many individuals across the country over the last couple weeks I experienced Hurricane Sandy from the safety of my home, looking at the devastation of the east cost via TV and photos posted on various news and social media sights.  Wanting to help, but not sure how.

Cue in the very talented Jackie Mangiolino, owner of Believe Notes, a designer friend and NY native.  Jackie, with the help of her mother and over 50 designers, decided to help through the best way we know how, through design. She created an Etsy shop called Designers Care where you can purchase beautifully designed and stamped note cards and all proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.

Each design in this shop has been donated by an established designer and then hand stamped, or hand embossed, onto either a small wallet-sized card or a larger note card. The cards are perfect for keeping as inspiration, framed art, or to gift it forward to people that may be in need of a little cheering up.

Please click through these links (below the image) to view more designs and support such an important cause while bringing a little beauty into your life.  

Hint: these would also make lovely holiday cards, gifts and gift tags!

and my own design in the shop:

Holidays are here!

It sure is crazy that I haven't posted in such a long time and even crazier that I am posting about the holidays (really they are just around the corner)

To get you in the spirit I thought I would share a little inspiration board with you.   I am totally into this neutral metallic look.  So beautiful and timeless!

You too can create your own inspiration boards, just click though the below image to
