Kim Howes: Rendi Review

Even though it makes me insanely happy to have so many pictures of my children displayed throughout my home, I’m always equally as happy when I have the chance to display pictures of my husband and I (without the kids!). So when I was given the chance to create and review a Rendi product from stylist Kim Howes, I scoured my wedding pictures to find the perfect fit for this project.

I chose one of my favorite wedding photos to create my custom Rendi piece – a 7.5”x7.5” customizable photo sign. The process of creating my piece was very easy – I chose the style I wanted, uploaded a photo, and edited my text and color choices. Then I simply added it to my cart and checked out! When my product arrived, I was impressed with the way it was packaged – not only protected against possible breakage, but also very pretty and gift-giving ready! I like a company that cares about all the little details about an order – makes me feel like my business is important to them. The piece itself was even prettier than I thought it would be. The photo looks great on the wood. I was also happy to see that, along with the typical slot for wall-hanging, the piece came with a wooden stand so that I have the option to display it as a table piece as well.

Working with Kim as my independent stylist was a pleasure. Kim, a wife and mother to two boys, ages 16 months and 9 years, launched her Rendi business in November 2011. Rendi, launched in 2010 by Annie & Mark Danielson, is one of the hottest new home party companies. Rendi, meaning “you make” in Italian, provides an easy way to create personal, meaningful gifts and home decor. Kim is a wonderful representative for the company – she’s upbeat, energetic, believes in what she is selling, and really understands what customer service is all about. I look forward to working with Kim in the future on new projects!
