Father's Day is around the bend and it's never too early to start planning ahead so that there are no last minute surprises where you shout out, "Oh my goodness!  Sunday is Father's Day!!"  No, you're good - you still have over 5 weeks before June 21st!  Today I'm presenting some gift ideas for the dad who loves to be outdoors and fish - does your dad fall in this category?  I know my father did - he was a great lover of the outdoors and I have fond memories of going fishing together with him and my brother.  I've selected 5 items to jumpstart the gift giving process and get you thinking like a Father's Day gift giving pro!

Elite16 :: Spring Gift Guide

It's spring and we are so ready to kick off the socks AND the season with our new Elite16 Spring Gift Guide!  We were inspired to go with a minimal look to really showcase the beauty in each of the handmade items.  In making our selections for the guide, we carefully handpicked each item from a group board while we considered the overall look and feel of the collection.  Then, we unleashed the creative power known as Cinne Worthington and she went into her zen space and dazzled us with her graphic design genius!  We think you'll agree that there's much to love about a handmade life and what we as creative beings create individually and collectively as artist.  We dedicate this guide to YOU!

How do you feel about the color blue?  Oddly, it's not a color I am usually drawn to when it comes to clothing.  However, I love the color blue in nature.  Blue skies, blue ocean, blue jays, blueberries!  As a water sign myself, I can tell you that I do love the ocean and living near water - it's been around me my whole life.  The color blue is soothing, it feels healing and tranquil.  I decided to put together a little gift guide for all those fellow Pisces out there around the color blue.  

I'm curious to know how the color blue plays into your life?  Love it, hate it, can't live without it?  You tell me!

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be an extravagant affair in order to let your partner know how much you love and care about them.  You can show your love in small, yet meaningful ways and really touch the heart of the one you love.  Giving the gift of handmade on Valentine's Day is such a natural fit - items made with love and care through the work of the hand!  "Made with Love" might sound cliche, but we believe that handmade directly translates when it comes to showing your love through a gift!  Now that we're officially launched into the month of February, we've taken the guesswork out of what to order through our curated Valentine's Day Gift Guide - making it that much easier to give the GIFT of LOVE this Valentine's Day!
