I’ve been waiting for this day for MONTHS… behind the scenes, Kathy from Clairebella Studio reached out earlier this year to chat about a fun opportunity to create my very own custom line of gifts, travel totes, personalzed goodies and more and I squealed with delight and answered with an instant HECK YES! Sometimes, you don’t even need time to think these decisions through– you say yes and go all in. It was so much fun… let me tell you!!
From the initial design call, we talked about colorways and pattern options and Kathy was totally up for me running with my ideas and gave her thumbs up to the three designs I had sent her way. From there, she mocked up imagery and then ordered samples for us to review and the rest is history. As much as I love fashion, there is something truly special about having the opportunity to create a gift collection all your own, especially since my love language is gift giving to others AND since the holidays are fast approaching, it was the perfect opportunity to make this partnership happen.
We created four distinct patterns: Come On Get Happy Confetti, Mod About You Stripes, Anything But ordinary Leopard and Abstract Is Where It’s At… and yes, I had the BEST time naming each as they are total extensions of things I love and patterns that bring me the most joy!! Each item is available in a ton of colorways with thousands of options from color and text to font and overall design. Trust me, you’re going to have a ball playing with the online design tool.
So without further adieu, let’s get right down to business and introduce the Clairebella x Hello Happiness Collection:

The Travel Tote | shown in Mod About You Stripes, this oversized travel tote is great for trips for the beach and weekend getaways, too… it’s a great gift for bridesmaids and girlfriends and you can personalize it to your liking! add your name, initials, zip code or city and then add a shadow or an outline… SO many options!!! **ships in 7-10 business days, measures 23.5″ x 16″ and is made of stain resistant polyester canvas**

Dog Bandanas | oh you KNEW I’d have something crafted specifically for our best buddy, didn’t you??? Now your furry friend can be as stylish as you are… these oh so soft bandanas are adorable on and can be worn by tying around your dog’s neck… they measure 25″ x 15″, though for smaller dogs, we recommend personalization closer to the bottom of the bandana so you can roll it up, making it shorter

Wine Bags | A personal favorite, these gorgeous wine bags are perfect carriers to tote a bottle to your next party or event and are crafted of durable neoprene AND come with an attached corkscrew for convenience! your personalization will be printed on both sides and holds a standard 750ml bottle of wine!
Mousepads | I’m old school and still use a mousepad with my laptop… and what I love about these is that they are convenient enough to throw into my laptop case for easy on the go use as well! Go ahead, you know you need one of these stylish office accessories to brighten up your work space… 8″ round, .25″ thick and made of super sturdy neoprene! And since somany of our kids are relying on technology these days for Zoom calls, online classes and such, this would be a fun gift to grab for them, too.
Personalized Journals | You can NEVER have too many notebooks… I’m the one that has passed that love affair off to my kiddos and these hardcover journals are the perfect size. At 5″x7″ they easily fit in my handbag and tote and the flexible spine allows it to lay flat = the little details, y’all!! You can also customize them with your name or initials therefore making it a great option for teacher gifts!
Flat Zippered Bags | [shown in Come On Get Happy Confetti, this serves as the perfect accessory to add style to your look… these adorable bags have gift giving written all over them — for bridesmaids, besties, yourself and the kids as well. We use ours to store our laptop cords, headphones, etc and they are so convenient for tossing in the backpack or tote for travel. P.S. they also make GREAT sunscreen holders for summer activities and come in two sizes: small measures 8.25″ x 5.25″ and large measures 12″ x 8.25″.
Napkins | If there is one thing I love about setting a table, it’s personalized napkins… and since I am a lover of all things colorful + bright, it’s a constant effort to find ones that stand out with a bit of pop and pattern. These INCREDIBLE napkins could be my favorite item from the collection, just because they are so unique and bring something fun to any dinner party. You can personalize with your monogram or initial, are 20″ square + made of durable poly twill and come in a set of 4. The cutest hostess gift you could ever give someone, too!
Dinner Plates | Parents take note… the first thing you’re going to want to note about these FAB plates are that they are both microwave AND dishwasher safe = crafted out of thermosaf (R) composite polymer, they are 10″ round and are made in the USA… they are also FDA approved for food contact and safe for convection and conventional ovens as well. So many fun options to select from so grab a set [or two] so your family can eat on this cuteness ASAP.
Serving Platters | Another item you can NEVER have too much of? SERVINGWARE… especially ones you can wash in the dishwasher and reheat in the microwave. Just like the plates, our rectangle platters are made of thermosaf (R), composite, polymer and measure 10″x14″. Great for taking along to tailgates, get-togethers or just having on hand at your house for when guests come over, I know this will soon become a beloved favorite for all so you can entertain in style!
Phone Cases | OK tech gurus and friends that want to be able to identify their phone easily… look no further than the coolest cases in town! So many fun prints and patterns to choose from with endless personalization for every phone including the iPhone Pro Max 11 and all previous styles as well.

Tumblers | And last but certainly not least, let’s talk tumblers… these beauties come in two sizes: small holds 10oz. of liquid, while the large hold 20 oz. These stainless steels cups keep your beverages hot and/or cold for hours and pull double duty as a way to style your favorite flowers, too.
