It’s finally spring! Oh, this winter has been a rough one for most of us. With record snowfall and blistering cold temperatures, I for one am just happy to see the word spring appear on the calendar! Even though it’s a chilly 40 degrees right now, I hear birds chirping and am dreaming of full bloomed lilac bushes, Easter orchids and more!
There is just something about flowers that represent spring. Those first green stems starting to stick up from the still cold ground. The little buds of green sprinkled across a bush or tree. It’s exciting, it’s fresh and best of all this year, it means warmer weather is at long last on it’s way.
Nothing says spring more than a small bouquet of blooming daisies. The Fresh Daisy Ensemble is an adorable spring time stationery set. The whimsical font displays your name and leaves plenty of room to write your sentiment. The open face design and large petals makes this bloom welcoming of the sunshine filled days ahead. Use these notes to write a note to your family and friends letting them know you made it through this long cold winter okay and that you are ready and willing to get out and visit. This ensemble features 12 fold notes, 12 flat cards, 24 envelopes and 70 seals all for $28.95. The notes and cards are digitally printed which means they are smooth all the way around as you can’t feel the personalization. Your name will be personalized in a whimsical font on both the cards and notes in your choice of lime, gray, or black ink. For a few dollars more you may line the envelopes and or print the return address on the back flap of the envelope. This item, number 3092 is a great choice for the gardener. Whether you buy it for yourself or for a friend it is sure to send some sunshine to all who receive a note on this stationery.
Another sure sign of spring is the emergence of pastels. These appear from clothing, to bathroom, accessories to even our stationery. Pastels pop up just as quickly as flowers do in the springtime. You can keep your spring cleaning lists organized, the aptly named Spring Fling Memo Pads and Holder set. For $29.95 you will receive 700 sheets on seven pads of vibrant colors. Each pad is personalized with your name. Some with just the first name others with your full name and they all fit perfectly into a personalized acrylic holder.

In the spirit of springtime breathing new life into your everyday, why not purchase some new address labels.
