Card of the Month: July

July is… HOT. At least here in Nashville! We’re doing everything we can to cool off and enjoy family time while school’s out. We’re also prepping for trade show season! Things are busy, but we’re making time for quality time.

This month’s Card of the Month seemed fitting: Collect Moments, Not Things from our Heartward Collection.

This card sums up summer. Moments. Making memories. Taking trips. Playing outside until daark. It’s what we’re all about.

Collect Moments Not Things

Our Heartward collection is all about encouraging loving-kindness and leading with your heart. See more here.

This card is a perfect “just because” card and a great reminder to send to anyone and everyone in your life.

Remember: Write More Love Notes.

Happy Summer!

The Best Summer Reads for Your Kiddos

Around our house, we're big on books and story time. Especially when school's out during the summertime! Lately, River (our oldest) has been carrying tons of books around in his backpack. It's the cutest thing and it makes us pretty happy.

We've compiled a bunch of our two little ones' favorites (and ours) for you to read this spring and summer. We've specifically chosen the titles that we think will also inspire your kiddos to write more love notes! (P.S. Don't forget to show us a photo of what love notes your little ones are writing for our Love Note Challenge)

River's Faves:

  • The Hug Machine by Scott Campbell
  • Ferdinand The Bull by Munro Leaf
  • The Magic Treehouse Series by Mary Pope Osborne

Scout's Faves:

  • The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss
  • Curious George by Margret & HA Reys

Ours & Their All Time Faves:

  • Rosie Revere Engineer by Andrea Beaty
  • Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
  • The Day the Crayons Quit / The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers

Let us know which books you and yours love the most, and which you choose to read from this list. 

Plus... here's one more reminder to check out our Love Note Challenge after reading these books with your littles (you can keep up on Instagram)!

Looking Toward Summer

It seems crazy to even be saying the word "summer" (especially because we just got snow here in Nashville this week) but believe it or not, it's coming and it's coming quick.

We can't wait for porch weather and bare feet, and our little ones can't wait for school to be out so that they can run wild. 

You may not think of summertime as a "greeting card season" but we do. Partly because we believe in sending notes all year long, but also because of the end of school, graduations and yard parties. 

It's the perfect chance to tell a teacher "thanks so much" or a friend "YOU DID IT!!!" Not to mention, we end up using tons of cocktail napkins when it warms up... ;) 

Check out some of our favorite cards & goods for this season:

End of School & Graduation

These cards say "congrats" and "thank you" to those who deserve it: our grads and our teachers.


Summertime + Outdoor Gatherings

These cards & cocktail napkins are ideal for host(ess) gifts, "I'm thinking of you"s or for party decor.

Here's hoping it continues to get warmer!
