2015 Desk Calendars are now available!

It’s likely that you’re now on the last page of your 2014 calendar (unless it’s been a really busy week and you’ve completely forgotten that it’s now December).  Anyway, it’s time for a new calendar!

Check out our 2015 Desktop Calendar!

They’re also great for co-workers, friends, parents, neighbors, or anyone who enjoys knowing what date it is.  AND, because you put up with my sporadic blogging and social media attempts, you can get 20% off any purchase in the shop over $15.  Just use coupon code PEPPERMINT at check out.

New Hope Christmas Craft Fair


I don’t typically do a lot of selling in person. This is mostly because I’m busy with my corporate/non-profit clients and therefore don’t make a lot of stationery that isn’t personalized.

But I’m breaking my trend because my church is hosting its annual Christmas Craft Fair & Bake Sale on November 8, 2014 from 9:00am-2:00pm (8905 Ox Road, Lorton, VA). Parking and admittance is FREE. And the best part is that all proceeds benefit Feed My Starving Children. FMSC is a non-profit organization that sends hand-pack meals, specifically formulated for malnourished children, to nearly 70 countries around the world.

Every 22 cents you spend equals one meal. So if you spend $20.00, it buys nearly 91 meals – how awesome is that!

I’ll be selling the following items:

  • Single Notecards
  • Boxed sets of Thank You and Holiday cards
  • 2015 Desk Calendars
  • Laser cut wooden ornaments (made by my mom!)

AND…to help raise as much money as possible, I have decided that all the money I receive for items sold in my Etsy Shop on November 8-9, 2014 will also be donated to FMSC.  This way if you can’t make it to Lorton, VA next weekend, you can still participate and help a child in need.

Introducing the 2014 Desk Calendar

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I frequently don’t know what day of the week (or month) it is.  Blame it on working from home, having an infant or not eating enough of whatever it is I’m supposed to eat to help my memory (clearly I can’t remember that either).  So I came up with a solution, which  conveniently doubled as a great gift for my vendors and colleagues this year!



You can purchase them online at my Etsy shop as well.  And if you order by TOMORROW by 2:00pm (which IS Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013) you can get free Priority Shipping for US customers AND it should arrive by Tuesday.  Just in time for a last minute Christmas gift.  Click here to see the listing!  No codes necessary, just purchase the regular First Class shipping and I’ll upgrade you for free!
