Periodically Inspired
In pursuing this Blog I get the opportunity to work with so many amazing companies, entrepreneurs & awesome people alike. My eyes and mind are opened to new and amazing products + concepts almost daily. The only thing I love more than the products and services themselves, is sharing them with my readers for the very. first. time!
This Fall we're working with a handful of awesome Etsy vendors that I'm just tickled pink about!
The first gets down and nerdy with the periodic table of elements. Striking a sour cord in me for the Chemistry class I nearly failed in highschool. If you've got a love for all things geek + chic (think Mendeleev, chemicals, balancing equations, etc.) this store is for you!
"Periodically Inspired® chemically compounds your nerdiness with GENIUS, NERDY, BRAINY CHICK, and WISE ASS t-shirts, coffee mugs, baby onesies and much more! Inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements, these creations make the best gifts for your favorite chemistry teacher, baby genius or "wise" ass! Since 2010, we’ve put the rad in radioactive for scientists and science-lovers alike. No lab coat required."

Banners by J
If you've been reading for any amount of time you know we've bounced from rental space to rental space quite a bit over the last howevermany years; And I'm constantly looking for more ways to brighten up + warmify is that a word? our home. Painting the walls and adding decals did a lot, but it didn't feel family-oriented enough. So I had the bright idea to add some banners and wordage. This is totally a thing right now... right?
I found Jennifer, on Etsy, and she made me a gorgeous, original-concept banner for our home that will last through every Holiday imaginable! read: I may never. take it. down. She also makes cards, gift tags, garlands, the papercrafting list goes on + on.
Based in Pittsburgh, PA, the meeting-and-eventually-falling-in-love-place of one of my oldest friends + her now beautiful family, Banners by J is a small, homemade business trying to make it in the booming Etsy world. She stands out because her banners are made with precision and a meticulous eye, not to mention customized to your every desire. Love
