Oh, Baby!

Posted August 29, 2011

 

In recent months, I’ve been bombarded with baby shower after baby shower.  This by no means is a bad thing, though! It is so exciting to share this time with friends. Life is about celebrating all those special moments, and since baby showers are quite an eventful occasion, it is a perfect time to shower those you love with gifts.

It’s All Greek to Us!

Colleges are now beginning their fall semesters.  For many incoming freshman girls, rushing a sorority is new and exciting. After receiving a bid, sorority house colors are worn with pride and are shown off everywhere.

Why I Love Personalized Gifts

Posted August 22, 2011

 

Looking for a gift for a friend’s birthday, baby shower or any other special time?  Personalized gifts are great for any occasion! Why are personalized gifts awesome? They are special because they cannot be duplicated and are uniquely their own.  It is not too uncommon to be at a friend’s house and see an item that you also own.  Well, if you have an item personalized, it will surely be yours and yours only.

Ideas That Stick

Posted August 17, 2011

 

Sticky notes can serve as one of the most useful office or home items! Organization is key when it comes to remembering important tasks or appointments. A great way to write quick reminders for yourself is to use a sticky note cube.  They come in handy when making to-do lists for day to day activities and are great for dealing with the hustle and bustle of going back to school.

 

Sticky notes can be great if you need to do any of the following:

The Importance of Color

Posted August 15, 2011

 

We love color around here…picking colors for our Confections line is such fun! The human eye can perceive approximately seven million colors. Some people may not look past the colors the rainbow, but there are endless options of color. This makes being a designer full of adventure with so many color choices. Pantone comes out with color reports that are always exciting because they give us ideas on great color combinations or popular colors for the season. 

Here are a few fun facts about color statistics…

Today we are featuring our other Lauren here at Confections! It gets a little confusing around here with two of them, but with such a common name I’m sure they are used to it.

I love being in an environment surrounded by so much creativity!  It gives me much inspiration to write about each new and exciting product by Confections by Shara’s Paperie. I really enjoy connecting with the public to share fun items and ideas.

Inspiration in the Form of...Anything!

Posted August 10, 2011

 

Working in a design oriented environment requires a constant stream of new ideas. With every request from a customer, we must bring something new to the table to make sure they receive something that is uniquely their own. That’s what makes our job so exciting because we always have new and exciting tasks to take on!

Back to School!

Posted August 8, 2011

 

For most of us, today began the new school year.  Oh, how exciting it was to be young and reunite with classmates after the summer break! But, most of us are older now, so we must find other ways to enjoy the new school year.

No doubt that part of what makes Confections as fabulous as it is would be the staff.  Our creative team is always coming up with new ideas for designs, patterns, illustrations and products.  Today's featured team member is Lauren.

I absolutely love designing! It became a hobby of mine after taking a digital imaging class in college and has stuck with me since then. I’m so glad I found a design position at Confections that allows me to use my creativity to make others happy!

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year....Wedding Season Continues

Posted August 4, 2011

We have now entered the month of August.  August gives us hope that the weather may soon cool down, which is much appreciated here in the south at least.  August is also symbolic for another special occasion…weddings.  Our current month ranks as one of the top choices for wedding dates, followed closely by September.  Therefore, it’s wedding season, people!

Announcing Our New (Much Shorter) Domain Name...shopconfections.com

Posted August 2, 2011

Confections by Shara’s Paperie is excited to announce our new and improved website name…shopconfections.com! Let’s face it, we have a really long company name and to type all that in is just too much. This shorter domain name will be easy to remember and quick to type.  The updated name is not the only new addition to our website; we have a fabulous new product to announce…magnetic dry erase boards.  Yep, a dry erase board that can also act as a magnet board.  Organization heaven!
