SJM 2014 Holiday Collection Part 1 Available Now

I'm doing a happy little jingle dance because part 1 of my 2014 Holiday Collection has officially arrived in the SJM Shop! I designed a specially curated collection for part 1 with my showcase at West Elm in mind. I wanted to include products that could be used in people's everyday lives, since West Elm is one of my absolute favorite home and life stores!

My absolute favorite new shop item? I love them all, but my 2015 Cocktail Calendar has won my heart! I have shared teasers of the illustrations for this calendar on social media and my blog, and it is finally here! Each month features a unique illustration of a girl all dolled up in seasonally fitting cocktail attire and holding an absolutely delectable seasonal cocktail. 

I will be posting the recipe for each month's cocktail right here on my blog on the 1st of every month. I am doing so in hopes that you will be able to recreate the fancy little drink and showcase it at any parties you are hostessing or attending later that month!

If you love the 2015 Cocktail Calendar as much as I do, and think that it would be the perfect addition to your desk or bar cart, you can shop for it here in plenty of time for the holidays- they make the most darling stocking stuffers!

This wish list notepad is another one of my absolute favorite new items in the shop! I can't think of any cuter way to organize your holiday shopping list-making, can you? I can just see you strolling into Kate Spade, J.Crew, and West Elm this Black Friday with your wish list notepad in hand, having a perfectly organized list made for each friend and family member on a separate page (don't worry if you have a lot of friends and family, because this cute little pad comes with 50 sheets!) and cheerfully checking off each item on your list with a vibrant pink or poppy red pen as you snag everything at an amazingly discounted price.

Your friends and family will be overjoyed on Christmas morning that you remembered every little detail they mentioned wanting this year, and other shoppers will be jealous that your notepad is so much cuter than their iPhone note pad checklist! 

Know that you'd love one for pretty organization and list making this year? Pick one up today from my shop! PS, I intentionally designed these not to be in holiday colors so that you can use the notepad throughout the year. Gotta love that!

Are you throwing the holiday party of the year for all of your favorite people? Are you having your out-of-town friends and family stay at your house during the holidays? Well if so, you absolutely must have these cheers darling coasters in your home! 

The coasters feature the December cocktail girl illustration from my 2015 Cocktail Calendar, making your home and party decor perfectly coordinated for any December festivities. They come in a set of 4 coasters and are sized 4"x4" making them perfect for both coffee and hot cocoa mugs for your home guests and cocktail glasses for your party guests!

Do you know that you absolutely must grab a set of coasters now in time for your parties and guests next month? Well I'd suggest doing so soon because quantities are limited and you just know you have to have them before your guests arrive! Get your set today here!

Since becoming a Stella & Dot Stylist, I knew I wanted to incorporate a painting of one of my favorite necklaces, the Fanella Necklace, into my shop. I had designed this illustration to announce that I was a stylist, and it got such a great response!

So, I have officially created both an 8x10 art print and greeting cards with corresponding blossom pink envelopes that are now available in my shop!

These prints and cards are not just for Stella & Dot stylists, and certainly aren't only for the holidays. I think that everyone should always be reminded that they should never let anyone dull their sparkle. Hanging the print in your bedroom next to your vanity will allow you to remind yourself of that mantra each morning and start your day on a positive note. And sending a greeting card to a loved one will instantly cheer up their day!

Desiring one of these prints for yourself or a friend? Grab one here! Also wanting to spread the love and write a note inside one of these darling little greeting cards? Pick up a few here to send to your friends and family!

I cannot wait to show y'all all of the other wonderfully pretty items that will be arriving in Part 2 of my 2014 Holiday Collection oh so soon. A little birdie told me that they will be available for pre-order next week, right in time for that Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday shopping that you know you'll be doing! That little birdie also told me that it will be including items like more greeting cards and notepads, as well as some gift tags and possibly even some mugs and phone cases.

PS, stay tuned later today for the announcement of the reveal of Thank Ya Jesus art print that I collaborated with Stephanie Creekmur to design!
