How to carve out more “ME” time

11 Apr

I am in a book club that I’ve been in for 9 years.  This is my “ME” time.   I absolutely love it!  I read books I most likely would never pick out on my own and love the discussions that follow.  I also love reading other books for fun and just picked up Jill Martin and Dana Ravich’s new book “The Weekend Makeover” (loving our new bookmarks, too!).IMG_1252[1] I am excited to dive in and see what tips these two have on creating more “me” time!  It’s a win-win … I get to read (“me” time) and learn how to carve out even more “me” time.  Sounds like a winning plan to me.

Insiders Look: Gift Show Report

1 Feb

Market season is upon us right now.  We’ve gone right from a busy holiday season right into a hectic January as we traveled first to the Atlanta Gift Show at America’s Mart and then to New York for the New York Gift Show.  Bringing our customers the best of the best in personalized products is our goal and I think we can say with certainty that the gifting industry is alive and well.  The trade shows we attended had upwards of 35,000 attendees from all 50 states and 80+ countries excitedly crowding the numerous aisles and booths!

Walking the trade shows provides a fast glimpse into thousands and thousands of new items on the market.  And yes, we must have logged a million miles!  Each booth featured a variety of products from house wares and table top to hand-made gifts, childrens and baby goods. There is literally a world of products to view.

We are looking forward to featuring a new selection of custom products at TheStationeryStudio.com in the coming months.  The selection will be unique and extensive, featuring a number of products never-before-seen on our site! A few new items to look out for are personalized picnic baskets, leather journals, custom cupcake holders and personalized wedding fans!

Stay tuned! Our New Products Department is busy hand selecting each of our finds.   Wonderful new additions will be available soon at TheStationeryStudio.com!

Behind the Scenes: Warm Holiday Wishes

11 Dec

You might have read in our blog post from November 29th that The Stationery Studio was hosting a coat drive for our community. It ended last week and we were amazed at the response!  We delivered 30 bags of coats to Pads to Hope in Palatine and were told that the need was great this year so the coats couldn’t have come at a better time.  Thank you to everyone who participated!

 

Happy Holidays!

 

XOXO
