This month our orders were made more beautiful by Kayla Reynolds, the artist behind Kay Rey Art! During this process of collaborating together, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Kayla better and have become fast friends. I obviously love her art + style and am honored to have her work on our order packaging and our free Pocket Journals this month. See below to get to know the artist behind the awesome artwork ...
