Inspiring Celebrations Since 2006


Quick Jump To » Comments

Of all the online shops I’ve been lucky enough to discover this year, Violet – a new website with a fantastic selection of stylish gift ideas – is definitely a favorite! The graphic designer in me is so very impressed with Violet’s refreshing & unique shopping interface – complete with a clever use of wit in just the right places. {For example, the “Get Carded.” remark on the stationery page.} This week, there is yet another reason to sing Violet’s praises: just check out this fantastic stationery giveaway they’ve put together for a lucky hwtm reader!

VioletVioletGiveaway includes all the great stuff shown above: Botanical Coasters, set of 3 Blithesome Booklets, set of 6 letter-pressed Punctuation Cards, and 1 set each of Bamboo Lattice and Aviary notecards (both available in aqua or yellow). Total retail value = $71!

Post any comment here to enter the drawing! Giveaway ends Sunday, May 20 at midnight PST. Good luck!
