A Style Note for #StyleMe

A year ago I called for the first ever Dean Street Retreat & set off to a charming bed & breakfast in New Haven, Connecticut with a handful of girlfriends. While in town I was introduced to adorable Anna of Anna Michelle Cards. She's one crafty & creative lady who just happened to start sharing her talents with friends & family & hello a little business was born. Three lucky #StyleMe Bettys are getting goodies from her Etsy shop, but you can all get them to your very own mailbox with the click of a button!

Anna says"I like to tell myself that I'm a stylist. Clearly not in the literal sense, but I do fancy myself a paper-fashionista in that I stylistically {and gratefully} participate in some of the most important events in my customers' lives - weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, proposals ... the list goes on. To blend my personal eye for all things paper & their vision of the event my goods are to represent, has been such an exciting challenge. The world is chock-full of inspiring & artistic folks! I've had the thrill & honor of working with some of the sweetest & most creative.  As a graphic designer & crafter, I see everything as style - the way books are arranged on a shelf, the proportions of framed photos on a wall - all of it speaks volumes - not the least of which is the way we dress our pretty little selves.  I can only hope my ability to style graphics & paper is translated to my dress each day.

Meanwhile, each of you inspire my creativity through #StyleMe & I'm thrilled to share my creativity with these 3 charming gals!"

I mean, how stylish are those cards?! Spealing of stylish, we've only got a few more days of #StyleMeMay! And then ... have you spread the word about #StyleMeSmartly ?! Did you invite your aunt, your daughter's ballet teacher & the shy quiet girl in accounting to join in? That sounds cheeky, but I'm actually serious! Can you think of someone who might appreciate a bit of fun & community, who wouldn't hear about it otherwise? Brighten someone's day & let them know you thought of them by sending an email or dropping by their desk tomorrow. :)

with grace & gumption,
