Just recently arrived, these new items (and more) will help your packaging look ever cuter. From resealable cello bags for your handmade cards, new colors of glitter velvet ribbon for your wrapped packages, new washi tape designs to keep things sealed, metallic gold and silver baker’s twine for glam touches, mini glass jars to store your mini craft items, and more. Head on over to the Shop to see what else is new!
Little Details Magazine is a newly launched lifestyle magazine that celebrates the little everyday details of life that we often pass by without noticing. I got to be a part of the premier issue (it’s all about hosting, both from the viewpoint of a host and of a guest) both as a creative director and as a contributor. We tried something big from the very start — to turn this magazine into not just a digital one, but into a print one. We ran into many hiccups that we didn’t foresee, but in the end, I was thrilled to be able to hold printed copies in my hands and mail them out to folks who kindly purchased one.
I’ll be taking an indefinite break for now from being the mag’s creative director because of our little babe that’s due in just 4.5 weeks — just to get the hang of all the newness of our expanding family and hopefully I’ll back soon. The second issue is already underway, so go ahead and follow the Little Details blog and its social media for news and updates.
As for the other contribution I made, I got to do a packaging spread where I shared ideas on how to package up gifts for your host, whether it be a box of chocolates or a basket full of goodness. I put up a few photos above taken by Angela Shae, some that made it into the final product and some that didn’t, just to give you a taste — but you’ll have to purchase the magazine either in digital form or in print form to see the full spread. And yes, that’s the cover pictured below via my Instagram. Isn’t it fabulous?
Can’t wait to see where this magazine takes us! PS: Now until March 14th, there’s a chance you and two of your friends could win your very own copies of the magazine. Just head on over to the Little Details Instagram to find out how!

I know I’m not the only one who has been suffering with winter blues. With spring so close, so nearly touchable, I feel like doing a little dance — but then I’m reminded that we still have at least another month to go before we start feeling any big changes. At least here in the northwest. We have little breaks of sunshine here and there, but for the most part, it’s still chilly and gloomy. So what do I do? I jump on Pinterest and go crazy for spring in image format. Here are some of my favorite pins right now:
