How to Have a Lovely Day

I recently spotted this image on Pinterest and thought it was a nice reminder during the busy season that's just beginning.

Sometimes it's easy to lose track of what's important as we struggle to stay caught up on our To Do list, especially during this time of year. We can get cranky and annoyed.

These little tips are a great way to reset our interactions with those around us, and maybe help others have a lovely day too.

Feeling the Photo Love

There is so much joy in the custom photo products that we make. Customers often tell us the story behind the meaningful images. The Becky bag above showcases a gorgeous wedding picture of our customer's parents. I love it with the Lollipop faux leather. The tweed makeup bag is her mother with her grandfather. Can you feel the love?

Checkbook covers and wallets can be compact ways to feature favorite images. The checkbook above is a gift for someone who misses her Springer Spaniel very much. The wallet is embellished with an image of a brand new kitten friend.
