Parent Notepads – Just in Case

I am so excited to offer these new Parent Notepads! The idea has been in the back of my mind forever. I always wish I had something like this when I dropped my kids off at camp, play dates, birthday parties etc. They a great for school notes too if you are already preparing for your kids to go back to school.
 I used them last week when my kids were going to friend’s houses for play dates. It was so easy to tear off a sheet and ensure the parents knew who to call “in case of emergency” or just a question. If your kids have allergies, this is a great way to ensure that special notes are properly communicated.
 2 notepad of 50 sheets each are $32.00.  Pads measure 4.25 by 6 inches.


On The Back Burner: Recipe Cards

These recipe cards have literally been on the back burner for a year! It’s such a requested product and we have offered them on a one off basis but I want to officially add them to our portfolio. We have 4 options – solid border or no border and then the image on the bottom right or top left. I must say, I love these and have thought of some many great ways to use them. Read on for some good ideas. I bet you have a few of your own.

Basic recipe card. Simple and classic. Just like the ones your mom used before everything was digital. I think this is a great idea to have someone you love write down their best recipes to share with the family. It really means something when you can see a loved ones writing on recipe cards. Also, like a great very loved cookbook, ones that are imperfect and worn from use and the best ones! I have a recipe card from my mother in law with her amazing buttermilk cookie recipe. She makes these for me when I come to visit and always send a few in the car with cold drinks when my father in law picks us up from the airport!
wedding cakeHere’s an idea that has been on my mind for a while. I love when a wedding shower includes favorite recipes from the attendees. What a great way to shower the bride – best loved recipes from family and friends. When I have done this in the past, I always share my favorite recipe for Sour Cream Coffee Cake from Cotton Country Cookbook. This is one of my mom’s favorite cookbooks – talk about well loved, when she bought my sister and I our own copy, we didn’t recognize the cover!!
pineappleLove the idea of the pineapple. Pineapple means “welcome”.

I am already thinking ahead for holiday gifts for my neighbors. One of the ladies at my bus stop gave me this great jar filled with choc chip oatmeal cookie mix and a note on how to make them. This card would have been perfect!
Hampton Paper Designs personalized recipe cards, 24 for $40.00

Hello UPS!

You know I am obsessed with getting mail – getting packages is equally as exciting for me especially when the boxes contain something amazing for Hampton Paper. Its for a new product that you all have been requesting for quite some time so I am super anxious to reveal it. I actually have 5 new products to roll out. Maybe one a day next week? Doesn’t that sound fun?


All In Stitches

I am all in stitches today about my recent discovery on how to make fabric with the Hampton Paper images. I am thrilled to see this idea of mine come to life. I actually have a long list of new products I would like to offer and fabric has been on it for quite a while…so I have that “dream come true” feeling today. YAY! I am so excited about this. Now comes the hard part, choosing which images for prototypes. There are so many I love. For me its like choosing a favorite child. There are just so many amazing images…..What would you choose?


Rumor Has It….

Yes, its true we are adding new images to the embroidery collection in addtion to a few new products (coasters to start!) So, now is the time to let us know what images you would love to be available on our tote bags, baby blankets, burp cloths and baby pillows. I love these two images to start. What else is the top of your list? The crab? gumball machine? fairy? Do tell….
