Nautical Baby Boy

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Brannon Cullum Addison | 0 Comments

1. What's a better gift for a new baby boy than a personalized towel from Pottery Barn

2. I love this little wooden boat. Would be great for nursery decoration!

3. The perfect welcome baby card for an August baby. 

4. I think this large tote from Sea Bags would be great as a diaper bag for now and as a beach bag when baby grows up.

Happy Cactus Designs on the Cover of Stationery Trends

Posted on July 23, 2014 by Brannon Cullum Addison | 0 Comments

I am beyond excited to share that Happy Cactus Designs cards are featured on the COVER of the summer 2014 issue of Stationery Trends

Stationery Trends is the leading trade show magazine for the stationery industry and is read by paper and gift boutique owners, designers, event planners, and members of the press/blogosphere. 

The cards shown on the cover are my flat cactus note cards. They are sold as an assorted set of 8 and really stand out because I hand-finish each card with gold paint. You can find them in the shop here

I have been working hard to improve my product photography (I take all of my own product photos - learn more about my process in this post) so it is quite validating to see my work on the cover of a magazine!

If you don't subscribe to Stationery Trends, you can check out a digital preview of the summer issue here
