June Mood

May disappeared in a flash and I attribute that to the fact that I’ve had my head down working on a new project that I’m quite excited about. I plan to share more in the coming months, but in the meantime it’s caused me to think a lot about the early days of Evermore. I always say that I wish I knew everything then that I know now, but I suppose that would take all the fun out of growing this business into what it’s become. It’s been a long, winding journey and for the first time in a while, if not ever, I’m feeling really confident with the systems I’ve put in place and the routine I’ve created.

So much so, that I decided to treat myself with half day Fridays this summer. I used to think that being successful meant constant busyness, but since starting Evermore my thoughts have shifted quite a bit and I now believe that success means being able to take breaks. With that said, I’m so looking forward to the extra time to enjoy the summer months ahead and to unwind, explore, and just be. And as a result, I’m feeling especially inspired by all those feelings tied to summer, especially thoughts of cool water, bright citrus, bare skin, glowing skies, warm breezes and airy scenery.

Botanical Inspired Gifts For Mom

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 12. This year I’m on the hunt for a gift that has a little more longevity than my typical go-to, which is a bouquet or plant of some sort. Since I don’t want to ditch the flower theme entirely, I gathered up a few botanical-inspired gift ideas that will last long after Mother’s Day. In my opinion, nothing beats a gift that keeps on giving and this gift guide has something for every mom out there.

Botanical Inspired Gifts For Mom
  1. A recipe box for the mom who’s favorite place is the kitchen.

  2. A natural scrub for the mom who deserves some R&R.

  3. A decorative candle for the mom who appreciates a cozy home.

  4. A floral stationery set for the mom who loves writing letters.

  5. A botanical print for the mom who loves the outdoors.

  6. A pretty phone case for the mom on the go.


So now that you have the gift handled, please be sure to check out our collection of cards for mom (and dad).


April Mood

Normally I find the transition to spring to be a bit awkward, especially given how unpredictable the Chicago weather can be (seriously what do I even wear right now?). However, this April is off to a fairly pleasant start and I find myself wrapping my arms around those tiny signs that summer is on its way. So far it’s been a refreshing month filled with lots of moments of creativity which I’ve been channeling towards my next release. I’m currently focused on adding more desktop tools and home goods to my collection and hoping to strike the perfect balance between function and beauty.

Introducing The Freebie Library

I’m about as paper-obsessed as they come and am constantly looking for new ways to incorporate it into my daily life. I love designing worksheets and calendars to stay organized, dreaming up fun party invites, and even creating my own gift wrap. Rather than keep these goodies all to myself, I wanted to create a space where I could share my ideas with others and thus, The Freebie Library was born.

  • Calendar downloads

Free Printable Cleaning Checklist

Free printable cleaning checklist from Evermore Paper Co.

Happy first day of Spring! It’s currently raining outside and while I’m looking forward to the days when I can open the windows and let the cool breeze in, I also realize that it’s time to give my apartment a serious deep cleaning. Things have gotten quite disorganized around here after hunkering down through the winter months and let’s just say that I have more than one junk drawer that needs tending to.

Free printable cleaning checklist from Evermore Paper Co.

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who’s space could use a little TLC, so I created this simple cleaning checklist to help you stay on top of everything without getting overwhelmed. The goal is to tackle one item from each section every week starting now and in five weeks time your place will feel all shiny and new again. And since I’m all about positive reinforcement, I also included a place to list any new items you’d like to add to each space as a way to reward yourself for all that hard work and to keep things feeling fresh. That’s 24 little updates each year if you repeat this plan every season!

Also, here are a few items that I currently have my eye on, as well as a few posts from around the web to help get you in the cleaning spirit (if there is such a thing).

1. The prettiest cleaning tools I’ve ever seen.
2. Chic organizers for sunglasses, jewelry and more!
3. A tutorial on how to create an asymmetrical spring floral arrangement.
4. The perfect hanger for tight closets.
5. A great roundup of eco-friendly cleaning supplies.
6. A laundry room redo that will make your jaw drop.
7. The best houseplants for your bathroom.
8. Helpful tips for making the most of small rooms.
9. Easy recipes for all-natural homemade cleaning supplies.
10. A simple label trick to give your kitchen and bathroom containers a major upgrade.

The Spring Collection

The spring collection is now available and features over 20 fresh new designs to ease the transition into the warmer months ahead.

My goal with this release was to create a collection of refined and effortless goods that you’ll want to grab over and over again. With most of my designs, I’m always looking for ways to represent my ideas as simply as possible while still being impactful. I found inspiration in a number of places and enjoyed sourcing new paper and envelope colors.

I chose to screen print a majority of the items in an effort to enhance the minimal nature of each design and provide new creative opportunities (hello white ink!).  In the end, these products came together very naturally and feel like a true reflection of what Evermore has evolved into.
