In my parents’ old house, my mom had a “wrapping station” where she stored wrapping paper, ribbons, tissue, boxes, cards and any other decorative stuff you might need to prepare a present for any occasion. I never really understood the need of being prepared in such a way, but now that I’m older and we find ourselves getting invited to more events, plus the unending series of kids’ birthday parties to go to, it makes a lot more sense to me to have wrapping and such on hand.
I’ve also come to really love stationery! I apparently lived in the south long enough to love a good monogram and can’t help but pick up cute little notecards or pads for random occasions. To add to my collection, Island Haus sent me a grouping of some of their cute cards. They have a ton of really adorable “just because” cards. This Summer Vibes card and the You’re My Everything (I love a good everything bagel – or even just the Trader Joe’s seasoning) are two of my favorites.
At Island Haus, you also have got to take a look at their collection of notepads. I picked out this citrusy To Do list because I thought it was fun for summer and I’ve been using it every day to keep my daily plans looking a little brighter and more festive (even if what I’m doing is not necessarily all that exciting!).
To keep the Christmas in July giveaways going, head over to Instagram for a giveaway of my little notepad! All you have to do is follow both of and leave your favorite summer emoji as a comment on my post!
