Mommy Pads for Your Favorite Mom

18 Mar

Mommy PadsWith Mother’s Day coming up on May 14th, it’s a great time to start thinking about little gifts that would be meaningful (and helpful!) for your favorite mom. A personalized Mommy Pad is perfect for sending notes to document reasons a child might need to leave school or daycare early, arrive late, miss class or generally inform the teacher or care giver other details concerning a child.

Mommy Pads, as they are commonly referred to, are notepads which have a heading like “From the Mommy of” or “From the Mom of” or even “From the Dad of” or “From the Grandma of” — really any heading you want… and then often the child’s name (or children’s names) are listed with check boxes next to the name(s).  So, it’s easy to check the box(es) of who the note concerns when communicating with babysitters, teachers and daycare providers.

These notepads will help mom stay organized and communicate with flair. We have many designs so you can select something just perfect for your favorite mom.  If she’s more classic in style – we have lovely damask patterns.  Maybe she’s very youthful and fun and, if so, we offer very unique emoji-themes that not only she will like but her kids will love too!  There are a lot of offerings but no matter which you select, the pads will be very easy to use and will come in very handy.

The Stationery Studio offers many exclusive designs and styles you cannot find elsewhere. They are fully designed with mom (or dad or grandma) in mind.  A personalized Mommy Pad is an ideal gift for a mom with young kids through high school age kids. It makes a wonderful Mother’s Day present, birthday gift or a great gift for any occasion. It’s also a fun gift for yourself, for your daughter (if you are a grandma), for your sister or for a husband (from the Dad of, of course)!

Many Mommy Pads also offer optional envelopes help keep correspondence private to the party who is intended to read it! One thing is for certain – they will really be used and appreciated!

Best wishes,

Admin Professional’s Appreciation Day

4 Mar

Admin Professional's DayDo you have one of those really great admins that are essential to keeping your stress levels down?  They can be indispensable when setting up meetings, arranging support documents, organizing light catering and just in general keeping things going.  This year, the occasion is observed on Wednesday, April 26th.

Admins are the type of individuals who stay in the background quite a bit, quietly trouble shooting, thinking about the “what ifs” and generally being a human lifesaver.  It usually doesn’t take much to make sure they feel appreciated.  But it also doesn’t take much for them to feel unappreciated too, if you know what I mean.

This year, consider a personalized gift that will reinforce the gratitude I’m sure you have on a day to day basis.  Some of our best selling admin presents for Admin Professional’s Day includes: a great set of personalized stationery, a memo sheet in a holder personalized of course, monogrammed cufflinks, pretty note sheets, mugs, pretty post-it sets, a Waterford pen with their name engraved, or a great cargo weekender bag with an embroidered monogram.  See what items your admin(s) would enjoy the most!

Remember how much effort it takes to be there to support your business efforts and be sure you let them know!  A little gift and token of appreciation can go a long way to enforce your commitment to them.

Best regards,

Renee Redman

 

DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs

1 Mar

Easter is around the corner and I thought this year it would be really fun to include some homemade Easter egg bath bombs in my kids Easter baskets.  If you have a tween or teen girl, you know how much they love bath bombs.  I recently learned how easy (and somewhat inexpensive) they are to make at home.  Besides Easter, you could make these for any occasion.  Birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, etc.  I think these would make great bridal shower favors.  You could use our personalized favor tags & bags to make it an adorable take home favor!

My daughter Emily and I made these over the weekend and we had a lot of fun doing this together.  It was messy, so keep a vacuum nearby!  Here is the recipe we used from diyprojectsforteens.com:

Ingredients and Supplies:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil
  • 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
  • food coloring (any color you want)
  • bowl
  • whisk
  • jar
  • bath bomb mold

Step One

Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix them all evenly with the whisk.

Step Two

In a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together. Note that in this step, the essential oils, fragrances and colors are added. This is an important step! Make sure to pick out lots of fragrance oils to try out here, as you can make many fabulous combinations for bath time.

Step Three

Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mix, one small spoon at a time.

Step Four

When well mixed, you simply pack this mixture into a bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry. Work quickly so as not to let the bath bomb mixture dry out.

We packed plastic Easter Eggs and clear ornament molds I found at a craft store.

My daughter Emily proud of her Bath Bomb creation!  You can combine different colors and scents if you’d like to make more colorful combinations. 

Enjoy!
