Atlanta Gift Show & July Card of the Month

It's that time of year again!

This week, from the 11th to the 15th, Breathless Paper Co. will be at AmericasMart for the July gift show.

This year is extra special, though, because we're bringing along with us our new company, Heartward, for their wholesale debut! They'll be showing off their kids tees, line of cards, small-batch jewelry and patches.

They'll even have this month's Card of the Month:

Seriously -- you don't want to miss it. Every single piece is made with so much heart, and it shows.

We'll also be showing our new card lines and collaborations. We're so proud of them and we can't wait to get you guys all stocked up. Come visit us to chat and check out what's new! 

Find us in the West Wing, building 1, High Design booth #614.

See you soon!

 

One Year in our Nashville Home

It's been one whole year since we moved into our house in Nashville. So much has happened in that year, and now our house feels like a home. 

We wanted to give you a "behind the scenes" look at our home and lives here in Music City, so that you can get to know Breathless Paper just a little better.

 

Around the House:

  • I am slowly but surely changing the lighting. I recently added these kind of industrial pendants above our kitchen island and I adore them!

  • The dining room table is one of my favorite pieces. It's the table I grew up with. My parents gave it to us and refinished it in a white, antique style and I LOVE having it! I installed a new light above it that I ordered from my mom's shop in Atlanta, Urban Cottage.

  • Our foyer is a great, open space. All it needed was a simple metal drum shade light.

  • We screened our back porch in, and it is our FAVORITE spot to be.

  • I painted our half bath a great deep navy. I LOVE it, and it's a great contrast to the bright white woodwork throughout.

  • Also in the half bath, I have a little Dash & Albert rug, a ceramic white accent table and a great wall shelf. My dad made the mirror for me from old barn wood and I changed the vanity light. It's actually one of my fav spots in the house :)

  • Walking up the stairs I have two large bulletin boards where we display the kids' art. I love watching them pin their stuff up there. Also on display is our Needle & Grain "Nashville" pennant that I bought right after we moved.

  • The playroom / band room is another family fave spot. Matt and the kiddos spend tons of time in there making music.

Fave Date Night & Restaurant Spots:

  • Adele's is a favorite of ours. We love the atmosphere and the food is excellent! 

  • Bar Taco! It was one of our favorites in Atlanta, too and we used to do dates there, so it's pretty fun to get to do that here as well.

  • I adore Caviar & Bananas for a date with the kids!

Fave Spots to See Music:

  • The Ryman... of course.

  • The Basement on 8th Avenue. It's a tiny hole in the wall with great beer.

  • 3rd and Lindsley. It is a good size and you can sit at a table with friends and grab food too. The sound is awesome!

  • Mercy Lounge is also great. It's not too big and you really can see from wherever you are, which is always a plus.


Needless to say, Nashville is home now and we are so happy to be growing our little family here. Come visit! ;) 

XOXO,

Breathless Paper Co.

Card of the Month: June

I don't know about you, but it's H-O-T where we are! But we're pretty pumped about it, because we love summertime. Lemonade, swimming pools, backyard gatherings... it's our favorite. 

So, this month we chose our "Today is All Kinds of Perfect" card from our Deep Breath Two collection. It's one of our newest lines of cards, and we love the pop of color this card has!

You know those perfect summer days that you wish would never end? That's what this card is for. 

Send to a far away friend, give to the hostess at that backyard party, or get your kiddos to write a note to their favorite friend. Remember... there's never a bad reason to send #MoreLoveNotes.

Love Notes for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a short few days ahead, and as a mom myself I have to say my favorite part is reading the notes my little ones write me. More than any gift, those notes are so important to me. Plus, it's pretty cute how into their art projects and note writing they get. 

As you may know, we're in the midst of our Love Note Challenge, which makes it all the more perfect that I got to watch my kiddos handwrite letters to me. These moments are why we're doing the Love Note Challenge and encouraging everyone to write #MoreLoveNotes. It just means more. (Join us now & follow along on Instagram!)

Now a peek at my little letter-writers in action:


Still need a card for mom? Not too late. Here are some of our faves that you can order NOW! And, as always, they're blank inside -- so you can write your own love note.

Card of the Month: May

Now that May is here and things have thawed, we're right smack in the middle of spring and we feel summer coming in full force.

At Breathless Paper Co., spring and summertime means lemonade stands and playing outside barefoot... so what better card to be our Card of the Month?

This card is one of our favorites from our original Breathless collection. It's not only bright and summery, it's a reminder to make the most of what you have and where you are.

At its simplest, this card is also reminder to actually make lemonade  -- from scratch, because there's something amazing about fresh squeezed lemonade when the weather warms. Life is about the little things.


P.S. -- Don't forget to take part in our Love Note Challenge! We want to see the love notes you're writing, because we believe the world needs more love notes. Follow along on Instagram!

Almost time to Celebrate Mom!

Mother's Day is about a month away, and that means it's time to get serious about getting those cards & gifts! No worries -- we've got you covered when it comes to cards & anything else paper goods. 

Our Mom's Day cards are some of our favorite. As a mom myself, my favorite part of the day is the handwritten note. That's why we leave our cards blank -- so you can speak from your heart and tell the ones you love how much you love them and why.

Below, check out some cards we think are perfect for Mother's Day. Pretty soon you'll be able to order each and every card individually to your door... stay tuned for that announcement soon on our Instagram (@breathlesspaper)!
