#THATSWHATSHESAID: TAYLOR HAMILTON, TAY HAM
The holidays can be a many-splendored thing -- between the menus that only come once a year, and countless excuses to dress up, it's pretty easy to feel festive. However, for some the anxiety of another year of gifting nullifies the cheer. As someone who loves nothing more than pairing people with their perfect shindig, or gift, I discovered the genius that is Tay Ham.
Taylor Hamilton takes my love of puns, multiplies it by 1000, and then creates a card with a perfect illustration to match. When in doubt, a good play on words is always a sure bet, and she has a card for everything from Father's Day, to the "just because".
Here's how she handles gifting off-duty.
Q1: Best gift you received? Who gave it to you?
The best gift I ever received was an I Like It Here Club Mood Ring. My husband gave it to me last year and it's my little beacon of magic. All of her stuff is really inspiring and just so full of heart.
Q2: Best gift you gave? Who did you give it to?
The best gift I ever gave was to my husband for our first wedding anniversary. The traditional gift for the first year is paper so I hand made 52 greeting cards; one for every day of our honeymoon. They were really fun to make and even more fun to read together. The response from that gift from friends and family is what encouraged me to do something real with greeting cards.
