Oh Joy! for Clorox...

Oh Joy! for Clorox

As a busy working mom, I use Clorox wipes multiple times a day to wipe counters, cabinets, and really any surface that needs a quick clean from all the germs that inevitably make their way inside from school, the playground, and just life in general. So, I am SUPER excited to announce that we've partnered with Clorox this spring for their first-ever designer collaboration to bring you our signature Oh Joy! sense of color, cheer, and joy to your everyday cleaning. Come check it out... 

Oh Joy! for Clorox

We designed four different prints for their Disinfecting Wipes canisters. Each one is inspired by nature that blooms in the spring, sunshine, and just generally things that make for a happier day!

One of the things I love most about these is that they're pretty enough to leave out in your bathroom, kitchen, or any room that needs to stay germ-free and cheerful. Having them on the counter top and ready for quick clean-ups is a convenient way to stay on top of messes as they arise throughout the day. And of course, when it's time to deep clean, I don't have to stress as much because they kill germs, which makes spring cleaning THAT much easier. Spring cleaning is essential in our home to not only wipe away dirt and dust, but also to disinfect our home from all those germs that inevitably show up. Then, we can head into spring with a clean and fresh home ready for plenty of family fun!

You can find them at Walmart, CVS, Amazon and Target for a limited-time only... Spring cleaning has never looked so good!

P.S. I'm going live on Facebook tomorrow at 1pm PST to show you all the canisters and a super fun DIY! Don't miss it!

happy friday + behind the frame...

Oh Joy! / Behind the Frame

Back in the early days of blogging, I was taking random (often not amazing) photos and posting them here for all to see. It was rough and scrappy, but also there was so much less pressure and expectation than social media often has today. Now, we offer original content (which I love) and beautiful, professional photos (which I also love). But, we really wanted to remind you of the real stuff that goes on behind the frame...all the mess off to the side, the beautiful photos that sometimes come about by accident, and just a little bit more behind-the-scenes. Hence, this post today...!

Oh Joy! / Behind the Frame

It's a simple look at a moment in time here at Oh Joy, but it shows you the talented people who help make our concepts, photos, posts, products, and partnerships come together. In this instance, I was checking out the work that Julia and Jess (pictured above) were working on for another project when they started taping pieces of art from the other project onto my jumpsuit. All-of-a-sudden, I was a walking canvas, and this photo you see first in the post came to life. Those are sometimes the happy accidents that come when we're fast at work on other stuff, and I love it all.

If you want to see more of these little peeks at the real life stuff happening over here at Oh Joy!, let us know below in the comments!

Happy Friday!
