Etsy Favorite: When It Rains and a Giveaway!

I'm happy to introduce you all to the very talented sister duo behind one of my personal Etsy favorites: When It Rains. I may have already mentioned that I'm a big fan of pretty paper. Handwritten notes make for a special thank you, hello, get well, and so many other messages. Now, let's get to know Cason and Kathryn a bit better.


1. Name, Age, Business Name
When it Rains is a sister team run by Cason and Kathryn Rainwater. We are 24 and 27.

2. When did you open your store and what inspired you to do so?
When it Rains was established less than a year ago in June of 2011. It's really the product of 2 sisters who got bored one rainy day. You see, we've always had a passion for making everything we come across fabulous. Whether it's planning a trip, hosting a Bachelor or Gossip Girl viewing party, decorating our townhome, or the regular girl’s night out; no detail is spared. Most people would say we go overboard. Us? This is our normal. Our lives are filled with spreadsheets and glue, glitter and sharpies, sequins and checklists – and that was way before we even started our Etsy shop.

3. Where do you find your inspiration?
Our inspiration really comes from day-to-day events - shopping in the city, our guilty pleasure CW television shows, a concert we went to - we are always looking for latest trends and how we can incorporate those and let it shine through in our work. Although, it doesn't take much to inspire us - polka dots, stripes, houndstooth, flowers, neon, chevron - we clearly don't discriminate when it comes to design!








Who wouldn't want to write their notes in one of these beautiful stationery sets? I know I would and that's why I'm so jealous that one of you gets to walk away with a personalized stationery set AND a matching luggage tag of your choice! To enter the giveaway just leave a comment telling me what style is your favorite (mandatory)!
