Sarah Richardson Collection at Hallmark ~ #Review

When I had cable, I was an HGTV junkie and loved to watch anything and everything what was on that channel. I believed I had that channel on at least 50% of the time and watched all sorts of interior decorating, renovations, do-it-yourself projects, real estates, and flipping houses shows. One of them I really enjoyed watching was Sarah Richardson.

I remember when she first started where she demonstrated DIY projects then later we followed her and clients on a show called Design Inc. and the last series I watched was Sarah’s home. I love watching her and Tommy, her right hand man, transforming a place from blah to a wow place that I wish I could live in. If you have no idea who I am talking about, you must check her out and you will discover that she is very talented and amazing. If I had the money to spend to renovate my house, I would love to pick Sarah and her team to do it. I love her choice in colour, design, and her personality.

It is very exciting to find out that she has teamed up with Hallmark and launched her own collection of stationary, cards, and gift wrapping needs. The samples I received scream classy, pretty, feminine, and timeless. The gift wrapping papers and paper bags are perfect for any occasions like Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Baby Showers, and Weddings. It is always great to have blank mini cards available at hand just in case you need to thank someone or inviting someone to an event. Her collection also has pretty blank notebooks that would be perfect for someone who loves writing journals, making notes, or writing down favourite recipes. I know some people now use their computer but I found it relaxing when I write my thoughts on paper than typing it out on the computer.


Check out Sarah Richardson’s collection at Hallmark and you will not be disappointed. http://www.hgtv.ca/photos/gallery/?gid=f575f6b9ab829aa0d06e1668ad5dcb13#!/0
