Artsy Magic

Artsy Magic

What started out as just-for-fun artwork on Instagram, “The Artsy Blonde” gained a number of followers, including a Phoenix-based mother-daughter team in search of an illustrator for their book. “Princess Pippa & The Crown of Kindness” is a sweet story about a little girl who believes lipstick makes her beautiful. Throughout the book, she learns that a heart of gold allows beauty to shine from within, and Kelly said, “That is the message I want girls to hear and take to heart.”

A Stress-Free Holiday Season … Is That Possible?

A Stress-Free Holiday Season … Is That Possible?

Now let’s skip ahead to December. It’s chilly and crisp during the day and the evenings are filled with cozy fires and marshmallows bobbing up and down in hot chocolate, in giant ceramic mugs. The holidays are in full effect, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or any other type of gathering. Invites to spend time with family and friends are coming in the mail. While it’s always nice to be invited, it’s often hard to know what to bring for the hosts (and it’s impolite to show up to a house empty-handed). Rafter Eleven is the perfect place to create a unique and local gift for your hosts and hostesses. There’s something for the coffee obsessed, the wine lover, the gourmet food aficionado, and the avid learner (think vouchers for our paint-and-sip and cooking classes). You can create your own gift basket or give the Rafter Eleven team a budget and a theme and they can have it ready for pickup upon arrival!

Home is Where the Candlelight Is

’Tis The Season of Thoughtfulness

’Tis The Season of Thoughtfulness

The year is winding down, but not before major holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah and the New Year, which typically entail some sort of gifting, whether  it’s a present wrapped up under the tree or a gift basket for the host who opened their home to you on a chilly winter’s night. At Rafter Eleven we believe gift giving should come from the heart and bring people together, which is why our customized gift baskets make the ideal holiday gift for just about anyone on your list.

A Grateful Heart Passes on the Joy

A Grateful Heart Passes on the Joy

“A grateful heart” may seem like an odd subject for a design and build remodeling company … but we don’t think so, given that we’re entering the season where we reflect on the past year (and wasn’t this one a doozy?!) and think about our blessings. This is also a time when we take stock and look to improve our performance, both professionally and personally.
