Tips & Tricks
While we all can’t have amazing kitchens with incredibly-organized pantries like the one in the photo at left, we can all make sure to do to best with what we’ve got! Head over to our Pinterest Profile Page and check out all of the neat kitchen organization tips and tricks that we’ve been pinning to our Food, Kitchen and Recipe Ideas Board!
Once you’ve freed up some space with those handy organizational tips, your kitchen is sure to look and feel 100% better!
The next step to freshening up your kitchen is to add your own personal touch to the space, so that as soon as you walk into your kitchen, you and your family feel at home.
Create your own “Kitchen Rules” Canvas Print (at right) and personalize it with all of the rules that you and your family have created and live by! You can add silly rules or inspirational messages, as well! Start by choosing a red, black, brown or blue background to match your existing décor. Your family name will be featured at the top and you can include up to 14 “rules” that will be printed in this fun design! Display the 12″ x 36″ canvas in a special spot so you can share your cute family rules with all your guests, too!
If you like the “Kitchen Rules” Canvas but don’t have the space on your wall for it, you should check out our Kitchen Chalkboard Personalized Slate Sign (at left)! The plaque measures 6″W x 12″L and is made from a hand-cut, fine-grained slate, which is a naturally weather-resistant stone making it perfect for your kitchen, or for outside by the grill! The elegant Kitchen Chalkboard slate features a charming bistro design that can be customized with any name, 2 lines of personalization (1 above and 1 below the name), and your choice of 5 clever statements about food – or you can choose to write your own fun statement instead! This beautiful piece of wall art will help add a sophisticated look to any home kitchen, whether it’s for your home or you’re giving it as a gift to a family member or friend!
But let’s not forget about the bathroom! To give your bathroom a face lift, we suggest giving it some character – with actual cartoon characters! The Bathtub Family Characters Collection Wall Plaque (at left) is sure to do just that when you personalize the plaque in beige or grey and hang it up for the whole family to enjoy! This fun design lets you turn each of your family members (even pets!) into cute cartoon characters for a fun design that features a large bath tub to hold them all! Choose any combination of family members, from big brother, little brother, big sister, little sister, baby boy, baby girl, cats, dogs, light or dark complexions and specific hair color. Each family member’s name will also appear on a bath towel behind them! If you don’t have the wall space, not to worry! You can also personalize the Bathtub Family Characters Collection Floor Mat and matching Hand Towels to help give the room your personal touch!

Calling all superhero fans! It’s time to iron your capes and round up your sidekicks because today, Thursday, September 25th, is National Comic Book Day!
Since no celebration is complete without a fun, festive and tasty treat, we suggest you get your own Comic Book party started by creating your very own Superhero Cookies, like the ones we found on Pinterest in the photo to the left.
Don’t worry, it doesn’t take superhero baking skills to make these treats – they’re much easier than they look! All you have to do is sift through your Christmas cookie cutters and find the gingerbread man design. Make your typical gingerbread cookie dough, or use a sugar cookie dough if you’d prefer, and cut out a bunch of gingerbread men. Once they have been baked and completely cooled, have fun turning each cookie into your favorite superhero! Make sure you have a bunch of color options when it comes to the frosting – those superhero outfits are anything but dull!
Make decorating the cookies a family affair for some sweet memories and once all the cookies have transformed from their secret identity – eat away! Make sure to save a bunch for your little ones to take to school and share with their friends, too! While you’re sure to have a ton of fun making this creative cookies the fun only lasts as long as you can keep from eating them! Keep the comic book fun alive by personalizing one of the gifts from our Marvel®, DC Comics® or The Ultimate Spider-man® Stores!

Losing a pet can be devastating, but commemorating your beloved pet with a pet memorial can help ease the pain by giving you a chance to remember your furry friend long after they’ve gone.
In honor Sept. 14th’s National Pet Memorial Day, we’d like to offer some pet memorial suggestions that you can use to remember your own beloved animals, or as sympathy gifts to comfort a family member or friend who recently lost their family member.
Remember your furry friend long after they’ve gone with one of our Personalized Pet Memorials, like the customer favorite “In Loving Memory” Memorial Pet Stone. The tasteful garden stone can be laser engraved with your pet’s name and memorial years below your choice of a pet graphic. Your graphic choices include a paw print, dog bone, cat, fish, bunny, hamster, horse or turtle. Place your Pet Memorial Stone in your pet’s favorite place in the yard, as an accent piece for the garden or near your walkway so you can remember them every day.
The holidays will be hard without them, but you can keep your furry friend close to your heart during the Christmas season with the Pet Memorial Photo Ornament. The porcelain ornament can be personalized with your favorite photo of the little guy or girl, along with any two lines of personalization. You can choose to include your pet’s name and memorial years, a few words about a fond memory or any message you’d like.
Their spirit will live on because each year when it’s time to decorate the Christmas tree, you’ll be able to look back and remember all of your favorite family memories that you shared together.
You can still have your beloved pet be a part of your everyday life by personalizing the “Paw Prints On Our Heart” Canvas Print (at left) or one of our personalized picture frames, like the “Paw Prints In Heaven” Photo Frame and displaying it prominently in your home for all to see. Both of these gifts can feature any precious photo, your pet’s name and memorial years. Additionally, the Canvas Print comes with three lovely memorial verses to choose from and the option of a black, grey or tan background.
Display your canvas or picture frame in the place your family gathers most, so you can feel the spirit of your family pet with you each and every day.
We hope these Personalized Pet Memorial Gifts will help you, your family and friends find comfort during this difficult time and we hope they help you keep the spirit of your beloved family pet with you forever.
Your kids may be headed back to school soon, but they’re not the only ones who need to be prepared!
That’s why we put together some great parent tips that will help get you organized and prepare you for your kids’ first day back to school and every day after that, too!
That’s why we suggest personalizing your very own “From the Mom of…” Notepad (at left) complete with all of your kids’ names plus your contact information, including your name, cell phone number and email address.
These cute notepads are sure to come in handy the next time you need to write a quick note for the babysitter, teacher, coach or even another parent you’re trying to schedule a play date with!
Think of it like your own personal mommy or daddy business card – it’s sure to save you a ton of time and stress whether you have one child or a dozen!
Another way to reduce stress as you’re preparing for the new school year is to update your own planner or home calendar with the entire school calendar, including all after-school activities your children may have.
You’ll be happy to have everyone’s schedule all in one spot that you can refer to throughout the year (especially parents who have children in different schools). However, in order to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed, we suggest personalizing our “Simply Organized” Calendar Pad which will help you keep your entire family’s schedule organized on a week-to-week basis.
Your calendar will be much more manageable and much less intimidating so you’ll be more likely to stick to it (we also offer Personalized Calendar Pads that your kids can use to help keep their individual schedules organized, too)!
The best way to fight that back-to-school stress is to be at the top of your game, by making sure you’ve started the day off right with your morning coffee! Head over to our Personalized Coffee Mug Department and have fun picking out a new back-to-school mug or travel tumbler design that you can personalize with your favorite photos, colors and message!
The back-to-school stress and morning carpool will be much more manageable when you’re facing it with a warm cup of coffee in your hand or cup holder!
