Karen Adams Designs

A friend I was visiting in Atlanta had received the prettiest desk calendar as a Christmas gift and I knew that I would need to tell you about Karen Adams Designs…

 Karen is a native Memphian who has traveled the world.  Her family moved to Tokyo and a circuitous route has landed her back in Memphis.  A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, she spent several years in New York.  She enjoyed doing faux finished and mural painting for a time as it fit nicely with a young  mother’s schedule.  1999 found her at the Stationery Show and Karen Adams Designs was off and running.  It is a family business with her daughter now included and I love that!

The desk calendars consist of individual cards for each month displayed on a gold or silver easel and they are lovely…

My friend’s husband declared that there would be no looking ahead – each new month would be a welcome surprise (I looked ahead but that can just be our secret).

I think that Karen would approve as she says, “I want to be clever, innovative, classic but in a fun way.  I want people to smile or laugh and feel good.  You know when you are out for a walk and pass someone who smiles and says ‘hello’ and you think I love that people smile and say hi, this world is pretty great.”

There are many more paper offerings
