In my spare time, I love to spend quality with my family and friends and taking day trips in the Texas Hill Country. I also enjoy reading, writing and working on craft projects around the house. My favorite Expressionery products are the bag tags I have purchased for my children. I use them for their lunch boxes, backpacks, nap mats and more.”

Elaine Shannon – Content Manager for



“I write articles for the blog and help assign out articles and images to make sure we have an exciting new post every week. I also manage the main website – making sure everyone is doing their part to add new products, get new pictures and make the site even better.

In my free time, I love to relax at the beautiful parks around town. I also paint, design websites and crochet. I love to use my ‘Handmade with love especially for you’ stamp to make pretty cards whenever I give away my work.”

Jen Duley – Designer for



“I am a product designer for and help spot trends that relate to our stationery products for the blog. I approach both with this philosophy: I want the recipient/reader to feel they’ve given, received or read something very special and personal. I use social stationery to stay connected with my friends and family across the country, spotlighting the special events in my life.”

Lisa Heymann – Media Manager for



“Other than contributing to the blog, my job is to make sure the world knows about with effective advertising and awesome promotions.

Family time is my ‘free’ time. Hanging out with my husband, daughter and son keeps me grounded. We love listening to music, watching great movies and entertaining. When we entertain, is my resource for beautiful invitations and cute thank you notes. I’m so happy I get to promote products that I adore.”

Corina Murray – Online Media Specialist for



“I manage the social media space for and get to interact with our customers via Facebook and Twitter. I’ve used personalized stationery for party invitations, thank you notes and gift tags, along with a custom stamp for all my snail mail correspondence.

I also often assist with the images for the blog since I have a passion for photography and can often be found with a camera in hand.”

Allison K. Leach – Stationery Coordinator for



“When it comes to correspondence, I am an oxymoron. While I have a passion for old fashioned thank you notes, I also love connecting with others in the blogosphere. The brand is near and dear to my heart, and I can’t get enough of the Instant Gratitude Notes.

When I’m not writing, I love to craft, sew and upcycle old things into awesome new things. Alongside my husband, I enjoy playing the role of “Mommy” to our four kiddos best.”

Kim Gibbins – eCommerce Manager for



“I help make strategic decisions for, from navigation to content. I was born and raised in New Braunfels and love it here! I have a diva daughter, an athletic son and a husband who thinks he’s one of the kids. I used to be a dance teacher and am currently a volunteer cheer coach. I enjoy crafting and shopping with my daughter and will always be a country girl at heart! I love to keep personalized notecards around the house for those quick little notes to school teachers, coaches and everything else life throws at me.”
