A year ago I said out loud, 'I want to write a book!' I didn't know exactly how I was going to make that happen, but being brave enough to own my dream was the first step. Soon I signed with a literary agent, busted my butt on a proposal and eventually sold "The Fully Charged Life: A Radically Simple Guide to Having Endless Energy and Finding the YAY in Every Day" to Penguin-Random House. The special napkins are manifesting the release in 2021 with my power color orange. Now that's @theyaylist worthy!
Charley is ready to head back-to-school in style with her personalized planner! Totally Mom approved! If only every emoji could be her signature!
Going back to school just got cool with this awesome emoji weekly planner for James. Having such a special, customized pad to help my soon-to-be second grader track his own day is a great way to teach him responsibility. Bring it on, September!
I call my crew Team Murphy because I believe team work makes the dream work, especially when it comes to raising a happy family of five. I created these signature napkins (in my power color orange!) as a mealtime reminder of our love and commitment to each other.
New Years Eve is our 10th wedding anniversary! I wanted to throw another wedding, but we decided to pay the mortgage instead (ha, ha!). But I did convince my husband and 3 kids to do a next-level photoshoot with Private Editorial for our holiday cards. The team was incredible, capturing so many amazing moments. How could I skimp on printing? The foil on these cards, luxe cardstock and little touches like the black envelope lining make me say yay all day!
Gratitude is something that has to be taught; We’re not just born grateful. I really want to raise appreciative kids and for me that starts with good old-fashioned thank you notes — not a text that says, “Hey, I got your gift. Thnx!” Charley just had a birthday and we picked out personalized stationery from The Stationery Studio together (she now goes by Char-Char), then sat down to write notes to the 30+ family and friends who showed her kindness. She felt a sense of pride and ownership with her custom notecards, carefully choosing the color she thought each recipient would like best or reaching for an emoji card. It took us three rounds to get through them all because her messages were so thoughtful and personal. A big mom win for me!
This is a gift for my husband! I'm desperately trying to convince him that we should convert an unused room into a library complete with book shelves and an iron ladder to reach the higher shelves. The dream! He wants a bar. I think if I set up a swanky tray with this whisky decanter and some posh glasses in the library, we could both win!
I love a holiday…any excuse to celebrate! And because my birthday is at the end of October, I´ve always considered Halloween “mine.” I completely over-decorate with everything from 6 different types of garland to spooky punch in a spider pitcher. These napkins are a spook-tacular addition to my boo-tiful decore. Do you see what I did there?!
With 3 kids and a chaotic household, the TV remote often goes missing. This signature lucite tray is the way to chicly corral the electronics on the coffee table.
Reading and writing has really started to click for my 6 1/2 year-old daughter Charley. I thought this fun personalized stationery would be a great way to encourage her to keep up the awesome work. Plus, emojis are everything!
I'm OBSESSED with this. First, I'm the Executive Editor of Good Housekeeping, so this jar had me at "executive." And, secondly, my nickname is snacks. Not sure if I'll stock this with sweet or salty treats...
