Save The Letter: 30 Prompts for Handwritten Notes

In celebration of National Letter-Writing Month, the teams behind Egg Press and Hello!Lucky cards launched a campaign encouraging others to write 30 letters during the month of April. Over the last 3 years, the write_on movement has grown to include thousands of participants and I am excited to finally become one of them. I hope that you will join me in writing 30 letters this month and in an effort to motivate us both, I created a list of 30 fun prompts to help us get started. If you're feeling up to the challenge, please be sure to tag your posts with #write_on. Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway to win a set of some of my greeting cards.

Kentucky Derby Party Ideas

Kentucky Derby Party Ideas

Earlier this week I shared my favorite Cinco de Mayo party ideas and today I'm pretty much pulling a 180 and doing the same for the Kentucky Derby. Moving from bright colors and festive decor to more subdued hues and preppy patterns. I love spending the day at the racetrack and everything that comes with it, including...

1. Summery dresses
2. Floppy hats
3. Equestrian-inspired pattens
4. Preppy details
5. Mint juleps (or in this case a peach alternative) and mint ice cubes
6. Fun backyard games

1. Mini cacti piñatas
2. Fringe invites
3. Fringe banners (yep, loving the fringe right now)
4. Pretty & natural decor
5. Festive party dress
