Good Monday to you #AAEFamily!
We hope that you had an amazing weekend! All of us here got a chance to get a little rest and relaxation in, and during our morning meeting -- everyone seemed refreshed and ready for another week at African American Expressions.
We are motivated today, by good news. Who doesn't like good news?
The good news for us was that we have been getting so much positive response from everyone about one of our newest products to the AAE roster. Three guesses to figure out which product we are talking about, and the first two guesses do not count. If you yelled out THE DRINKING GLASSES at the top of your lungs, then you were absolutely correct.
The only problem for us is trying to tell which one people are loving more. What do you think? Is it the Praise Dancers (DGL01) that seems to be winning your customers over? Or is it the Ladies with Hats (DGL02) that seem to be the object of folks' affections? We can barely choose ourselves, to be honest, we love them both so much! Take a look below and tell us what you think!
We put our true heart and creativity into coming up with products, but you can never be sure whether people will love it or not. It's always something that leaves you on pins and needles, waiting to see what happens when the catalog drops... will they like it? Will they be happy with them? These questions constantly run through the minds of our brilliant product development staff, but when customers call us on a daily basis to let us know just how happy they are with them, we could not feel more motivated! Motivated to keep providing products that people love, and inspired to continue to come up with innovative new products that you will love.
These beautiful glasses, rooted in our faith, and proclaiming our heritage, are the perfect gift for someone you love, or are the perfect splurge for yourself to add to your homewares collection.
Have you gotten a chance to see the glasses? Do you own a set yourself? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!
We would love to hear from you. <3
Merry Monday to you all! The sun is shining (depending on where you live), the birds are chirping, and we are starting our day off on a blessed note. We can only hope that the same goes for you all!
We all need a reminder sometimes. You know what we mean, right? That reminder that you need to keep pushing. That little something that gets into your brain and helps you remember that you have EVERYTHING you need if you have faith, determination, and will. Whether it's a little phrase, a verse from a song, a chapter in the Bible. Here at African American Expressions there is nothing we love more than being able to be a small part of your daily reminder to keep going -- because you motivate and inspire us on a daily basis to continue doing what we do. To constantly envision, create and produce quality gifts, greeting cards, art and faith based products, and so much more, that honors our diverse black heritage.
Well there was nothing more motivating on this marvelous Monday morning in May (oooooh that flowed so nicely) than a hot, dark cup of delicious coffee. I don't know if it the aroma, the taste, or the get-up-and-go that it gives you, but they were not kidding when they said it was the best part of waking up! Okay.. maybe not the best. The best is being able to wake up to another day that the Lord has given us -- but that coffee is definitely in the top 5.
So what better place to put a little daily motivation, then smack on the front of our coffee and latte mugs?
One of our favorites right now happens to be one that would be perfect for any of the father's on your list (Father's Day is fast approaching) -- it's our absolutely eye-catching "He Who Kneels" coffee mug. Simple in design, but poignant in message, our He Who Kneels is the perfect daily reminder for any gentleman in your life. Take a look at the link below.
Whether it's coffee, a special saying, or just waking up on this beautiful morning to inhale fresh air into your lungs -- may your Monday be blessed.
