Pen It!

Who here loves everything stationary?

Image(I know Allie has some mixed emotions about it.)

Writing thank you notes can be tedious, but I’ve discovered that I’m better about finishing them when I write on something pink and pretty! (Pink and pretty – isn’t that true with most things in life?)

With that in mind, I’m so excited to share Kris-10’s Creations! A line of adorably bright water color paper goods that I know all you Lilly-lovers will simply love.


Kristin, a native Texan, started making these designs for her own use as birthday cards and thank you notes to friends. They made such a splash that she turned this hobby into a livelihood. And I am personally oh so happy that she did.

Why do I adore her stationary? Besides the fact that she’s from Texas (I know, I know) I love how personal every piece feels. The watercolor makes for a sincere and gorgeous message – as if you yourself had picked up some paints and sketched out a little card.

Add beautiful Bible verses to the mix, and you have a winning combination. The sweet reminder of truth that lies on many of these cards leaves a lasting impression and never fails to brighten my day.

Here are a few of my favorites. After looking through them, I think you’ll know exactly what I mean!
