Spring is here! We are so excited to share with you this awesome collaboration between ourselves & the beautiful gals from Spring! Have you visited Spring yet? If not, you’re into for a huge treat! Their videos are extremely insightful, with four creative entrepreneurs & inspirational bloggers discussing hot topics such as Gratitude, Intentions, Goals, Support Systems & Money – it’s gold! The videos are very entertaining, I found myself while watching nodding my head seriously in agreement & also giggling along with them in parts. We are definitely rooting for them!
So, we teamed up with these inspirational ladies to make a GORGEOUS Printable Affirmation Gift Set for you! As you can see in the above photos we’ve included two cards for you to choose from, both built to hold your Daily Affirmation. You can print these out & set them on your desk or anywhere in your home as a mantra for you to repeat throughout your day. There are 36 affirmation cards total, as you will see below, 6 from each of us & also a cute box for you to store them in! All the pretty patterns used are designed by the lovely & talented Jessica Gonacha Swift! Thanks Jess!
We hope that you can feel the warmth that this set radiates, we created them just in time for Spring (It’s Tomorrow! Happy Spring!) because we all know what a looooong winter it’s been for a good lot of you!
Now, on to the Affirmations! After you grab ours, have fun visiting Spring & each of these awesome ladies’ blogs to get theirs!
