Ampersand Design Studio

You guys, we're SO excited that we have new planners and calendars at Target! These dreamy colors and holographic goodness is more than our minds can handle! We love it and hope you do too!

We have 5x8 weekly/monthly planners in four new designs and 22x17 desk pad calendars in two designs also! It's never too early to start back-to-school shopping, right?! Find them today at your favorite Target store or online through our partner, Blue Sky.

BIG, BIG, BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!! AMPERSAND AT TARGET!!

We love Target!! We do! So when we found out that our line of planners and calendars was chosen to be placed in EVERY. SINGLE. TARGET. STORE, We felt like it was a little hard to believe. But just as of 10:30pm last night when we went on a Target run to pick up some supplies for the studio, it all became super real. We both stopped in our tracks as we spotted our collection on the shelves! So here we are today, SO EXCITED (and a little more polished than our live instagram video-yikes) to share this collection with you!!!

Our partner, Blue Sky, produces the best quality agendas and calendars, so we cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on these. The collection features painterly brushstrokes, hand drawn lettering, and hand stamped patterns in a variety of bold black and white and pops of fun color!! We have a couple of 8.5 x 11 formats, a couple of fabric-covered 5 x 8s and a couple of monthly desk pads (22" x 17"), so hopefully, we have all of your 2017 planning needs met! We keep the pages clean and simple so there is plenty of open space to fill in your glorious plans for 2017!!

Follow along on instagram (@AmpersandStudio) and we'll be sharing more detailed shots and walking you through the inside pages and one of our favorite features!!!

Go Blog Social - Workshop 2015

Ampersand Design Studio

On February 22, 2015 we had the pleasure of being the keynote speakers at Go Blog Social Workshop!!! Go Blog Social is a designed to be your destination to learn how to grow your blog and social media knowledge, connect with businesses and get social with like-minded bloggers. The Workshop is held in Kansas City and offers a variety of hands-on, interactive courses in an intimate and creative learning environment. Basically, it's like camp for all of us that love social media or those that are wanting to learn more about how best to use it for your goals! The entire day was filled with inspiring speakers and we were seriously flattered to be included in that mix! If you missed it,  we shared our entire story....where we have been and how we got to where we are today (like every crazy detail including some parking violation issues from back in the day)...and then we talked about how we use social media and then a bit about how we think about partnerships for our business! We really hope those that could attend left with some new ideas and inspiration to go after whatever it is they dream of it!!
