Tales from the Bunker: November Edition

An idea born from necessity.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I have been busy cleaning out my planner and getting it up to date. I’ve had this old Memory Dock planner since, well, before Zach was born! I’ve updated and changed it, using it for different things at different times, it’s my constant companion and like many of you I could not get by each day without my to-do lists and having a clear picture of what my week looks like. As I was refreshing my planner this week I was a little disheartened at the lack of choices available for page inserts. They are all so boring! I’m a scrapbooker! I want pretty and functional! Sure, I may embellish my pages a little but I do not want to have to spend a lot of time dressing up my planner – the last thing I need is another “to-do” to add to the list.

And then….lightbulb moment! Cocoa Daisy could put together a Planner Kit, seriously how cool would that be! Pretty and functional, with a kit geared toward not only just everyday planning but also page inserts for you to sketch and design your traditional or project life pages. No more boring planner pages! The Planner Kit will be a biannual kit and we will make it as universal as possible, meaning it will fit most planners. I am very excited about this, and hoping to have pre-orders up by the end of December so make sure to keep checking back with us for more updates and sneaks as the Planner Kits come together.

On other Bunker news, we are busy putting together the December kits and I just saw the final paper designs for January from Stephanie and I am so excited!! I am just in love with the papers that Stephanie has been designing for our kits, they are so perfectly coordinated and usable, I highly recommend you snag an extra set as you are not going to be able to decide which side to use. There is always lots going on here as we strive to keep things fresh and new – and that is a direct hint for you to be watching for something very special to happen when the New Year starts :)

Also be watching for some great Black Friday sales to start next week!! You won’t want to miss this great stock up sale.

I hope everyone stateside has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving this next week with family and friends and please know that we here at Cocoa Daisy are incredibly thankful for all of you! I feel truly blessed each and every day!

Best wishes, Christine

December’s sneak: Home Again



Because of the US Thanksgiving holiday, Reveal Night will be moved up two days! Mark your calendar now for NOVEMBER 26th and join us on the message boards for the Reveal Night festivities. Same times, different date. Chatting starts at 8 PM ET, kits and add ons go on sale at 9 PM ET.

Many have penned words on the subject of home, but perhaps the best words of all come from Oliver Wendall Holmes when he said, “Where we love is home – home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.”

December’s kit and add ons are all about that feeling of love and home. Featuring many Cocoa Daisy exclusives again, including the new wood veneers, we think you’ll find all you need to focus on what makes your house a home with our December kit, Home Again, on sale to subscribers November 26th at 9 PM ET. Sales to the public will be at our normal day and time of December 1st at midnight.

Watch for the sneaks on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our message boards, some of the DT has already started creating! Search for the #CocoaDaisySneaks hash tag!


We think the December stamps are ones you’ll reach for again and again. Perfect for organizing and categorizing, you’ll want to get them all! And don’t forget to try out our Cocoa Daisy ink pads, they are the perfect black. Or you can go for bright colors, we’ve got them too with our Prima chalk inks.

500 December Stamps

Tales from the Bunker: September Edition

Many members of the Cocoa Daisy DT were able to get together at this last Winter CHA and we all left knowing we had created some amazing friendships and that we would all have to get together again real soon. With that thought in mind, I invited the ladies to come spend the weekend at my home here in Michigan. Emily, Mary Kay, Stephanie, Mandy Kay, Mandy and Jody were all able spend some time with me this last weekend and we had an incredible time! I know that I say this often, but it is so very true; I am so blessed to work with these woman and call them my friends. We had a weekend filled with laughter, beautiful weather, a bit of site seeing, shopping and a lot of delicious cooking! My kitchen smelled amazing all weekend long! My only regret is that the whole team couldn’t join us. Maybe next time, because I know there will have to be a next time!

Here are a couple group photos that I wanted to share, but you can see many more on our FaceBook or on Instagram under the hashtag #Cocoadays2013:




Of course while they were here they got to see the bunker first hand and they made me promise I would post a little picture tour, so I will make sure to do that for next month’s post.  Stephanie was very excited to see the paper she designed stacked up on the bunker shelves and I am so excited to ship it out in our October kits!!

October’s kit, Sweater Weather and add ons are a big hit with the Design Team and they have been crazy busy getting sneaks out so make sure you are following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so you don’t miss out on them.

I wanted to share a few of the exciting things that we have coming up this fall; our annual Fall Crop will be here November 1-3 and we will be featuring our November kit which is packed with Cocoa Daisy exclusives! Wait till you see the papers that Stephanie designed, and a little bird told me there might be a stencil in the main kit…..but shhhh you didn’t hear that from me. Within the next week we will be sharing some sneaks of our special “Document December” kit which is our version of a December Daily album and it will be available for purchase around the 1st of November. We are also working on few surprises; a lot of good things going on in the bunker this fall, I hope you can join us!

Have a wonderful rest of the week, and don’t forget reveal is this Saturday!

Best wishes,
