Collaboration with Elysian Market

Ah guys Im so excited! My good friend, Kaitlin and I have come up with some awesome wallpapers using her amazing abstract paintings themed around Valentines Day.

Be sure to check out Kaitlin of Elysian Market here!! You will be able to buy the canvases there and through her Instagram stories get some prints of the art as well! If you are interested, Kaitlin also does commission pieces tailored to your taste, you can reach out to here at hello@elysianmarket.com.

Here is some background on how this collaboration came about: 

Kaitlin is the fearless leader of the Cincinnati Rising Tide Society Chapter.  She is as kind-hearted and authentic as they come. This collection was focused on Valentines day to celebrate all types of love; love with friends, significant others and even self love.

The collection is named "The Future is Female". Part of this is in celebration of all the amazing boss lady's out there and really living out the moto of Rising Tide Society, "Collaboration over Competition".  It is amazing to be in the group and be surround by so many successful, powerful and helpful women. I have the names of each print under the photos as well! 

As always if you're interested in a collaboration with me feel free to email me at candidlykeri@gmail.com or head over to the contact page

We hope you enjoy these wallpapers with just the abstract art of Elysian Market or the Candidly Keri touch.  Be sure to follow her on Instagram for updates, and share which is your favorite! 

Photos of the paintings were taken by Kayla, a super talented photographer in Cincinnati!

Gift Guide for Friends!

Hi Guys! I hope that you are having a fabulous week!  So the Holiday's are right around the corner, and last year I did a gift guide for special in your life men and women.  So this year I wanted to do a guide for your best girlfriends! I collaborated with Alli, you can find her at allisonsantmyer.wordpress.com and I also made some exclusive wallpapers for her!  Here is what we came up with, most are under $50!

REMEMBER: to use Ebates for money back and Honey for automatic coupons

My Suggestions:

1. Happiness Journal - I have made it my mission to put out better vibes into the world, pray, set intentions and just do good. So I think this is great for a friend that is on the same journey or in need of a pick me up!

2. Lipstick Set - Cause who doesn't love a little bit of lipstick. I think this is perfect because it allows your make up lover friend to try different shades and have variety!

3. Tumbler - I know that I use mugs or tumblers every day and I love having some cute ones because they just make my day better through out the day. There are so many out there that you really can get anything you want!

4. Nail Polish + Wine - Perfect for a movie night in to paint your nails and drink a little wine.  And oh my gosh there are such cute bags for your wine like this ... And I love this fall set of nail polish!

gift guide for you friends

5. Jewelry - I have had friends get me jewelry before and I love it because I can carry them with me wherever.  You can get it personalized or just something that fits her style.  It doesn't have to be expensive but it can be such a nice gift! 

Ps. I have been eyeing these candles to personalize for each of my friends, super inexpensive!  

Alli's Suggestions

1. A DIY spa package, including your favorite Lush products! Throw together a bath bomb, bubble bar, and lip scrub of your choice and you're good to go!

2. Concert tickets! Summer 2017 is going to be an awesome tour season, so see if your favorite artists are hitting the road and scoop up some tickets! It might seem like the summertime is really far away but when the time comes, you'll be so ready for a night out with your best friends! Buying the tickets in advance can definitely save a ton of money as well.

3. A baking kit and recipe box. This one is for the friend who's always in the kitchen, making something yummy! With some festive cookie cutters and a snowflake dough roller, they'll be set to make goodies for the whole crew! (Keri here I love these Mason Jar Recipes too)

A baking kit could be found at Target, Walmart, Michaels, etc.

4. A blanket and candle.  I don't know about you, but wrapping up in a cozy blanket and lighting a delicious-smelling candle really gets me in the holiday spirit!

5. A mug and stationary.  This is for your contemplative, blogger friend who loves to write!

Alli has a coupon code to High Point Supply Co. and if customers write allisoninwonderland at the point at the checkout where it says "enter affiliate code here," 15% of their order will be directly going to a charity to help victims of human trafficking! 

Awesome to give back in multiple ways!

The Elgin Avenue Collaboration

Hi Guys, hopefully you know that I have recently opened up Candidly Keri to paid collaborations! And I made a page on the site with more detailed information here! I am open to not only doing wallpapers but printables, design and content of course!

Alongside Monica Beatrice Welburn of The Elgin Avenue blog, I designed a range of beautiful custom wallpapers, created to inspire peoples' day to day. With quotes including 'Today, I Am Thankful', 'Love', and 'Challenge Yourself'.  Monica states "these designs are a reminder to chase your dreams, believe in your own gifts, and to be brave with your endeavors". Six beautiful feminine designs make up the collection. You can download each of these designs directly from Candidly Keri, and head to The Elgin Avenue to read an interview with me about the design process, and to explore more of Monica's work.

Be sure to comment and let her know I sent you! Be sure to follow me on Instagram as well! 

I hope you enjoy these wallpapers! 

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions candidlykeri@gmail.com!

Candidly Keri Collaborations!

Hi Guys! I have some very exciting news to share! I recently did a collaboration with Geben Communication.  A PR company out of Columbus! They approached me about working together to create some pretty awesome wallpapers if I do say so myself.  

As a company they had some "house rules" and wanted desktop backgrounds for their employees.  I thought this was a great idea, a reminder of culture and what the company is working for.  Here are some of the examples of what we came up with!
