Stationery Show Invitation

This is the time of year when we start receiving invitations to the National Stationery Show.  Yesterday we received William Arthur's invitation and I adore it!  Usually the exhibitors send one of their new designs and I am loving William Arthur's die cut envelope flaps.  You can really tell in this scanned version, but the invitation is a very light blush color.  I love everything about this invitation.  

Unfortunately, I will not be attending this years National Stationery Show.  It's for a good reason, that I don't believe I brought up before - I'm expecting twins at the end of May/beginning of June (the stationery show is at the end of May).  This is also the reason for my inconsistencies in blogging recently.  I haven't been "nesting" at home so much as here at the store.  Just trying to get everything ready and organized for the girls and my "vacation" from the store this summer.  I have picked out a birth announcement - but that's an entirely different story.

Recent Projects

I thought I would share a few stationery items we've recently worked on.  The hard thing about stationery is that I feel like it never translates well on-line (which is why I can never imagine buying stationery sight unseen on-line).  The top correspondence card is for a new baby boy.  The middle card is on the prettiest card stock with a deckled edge from France.  The bottom calling card is such a sweet new baby gift.  Enjoy!

Graduation Ideas

I can't believe Easter has come and gone!  Graduation time will be here before you know it.  We've been busy here at Hayden Avery working on multiple graduation party invitations!  Such an exciting time of year.  In addition to graduation party invitations we have some wonderful graduation gift options - personalized stationery, passport covers, photo album and monogrammed travel bags (to name a few).  In addition to graduation Mother's Day is also around the corner.  So start thinking about what
gifts you'll need!

Happy April!

I was cleaning off my personal computer this last weekend and found this Tiffany & Co. ad that I'd torn out of the newspaper.  It still rings true and I try and apply these sentiments to both my personal life and the Hayden Avery business plan.  Thought it was a good way to start the week and start April.
