Letterpress Prints – Dee & LaLa

Good morning everyone!  I am so, so excited today because I've got a fantastic set of real wedding invitations to share with you a bit later this morning, but first I thought we'd start the day off with some sweet little letterpress prints from Dee & LaLa:

Aren't these just the cutest little prints?  They come in the four versions below — either individually or as a set — and I think they would be a wonderful addition to any room, whether a child's bedroom or modern wall artwork for a living room.

How can I help you?

I spent a bit of time over the weekend working on a project (which I'm really looking forward to sharing with all of you!) — and while I was doing research for the project, it occurred to me that it's been a while since I asked you all if there's something I could blog about that would help you.  Perhaps you're looking for stationery or invitation ideas for a particular theme or color scheme?  Or maybe you have a technical question, and I can help find an expert to answer your questions.  Whatever your questions — I want to help!  So if there's something you've been wondering or a particular area where I can help, let me know in the comments or e-mail me by clicking here.  I'd love to hear from you!

Hello Handmade Holiday 2009

I really can't think of a better way to start the week off than with two new holiday items from one of my favorites – Hello Handmade!  For those of you who might not remember their totally amazing 2009 calendar and valentines, Hello Handmade is a wonderful collaboration between calligrapher Betsy Dunlap and artist Shanna Murray.  They're back this holiday season with a beautiful tea towel calendar and holiday print:

Both the calendar and print will be available in the Hello Handmade shop this morning.  The Laureled calendar is printed in black ink on snowy white cotton fabric, and of course can be re-used as a tea towel once the year is over.  The O Tannenbaum specimen print is printed in black and white (with Betsy's lovely calligraphy) on sturdy kraft paper.  Shanna and Betsy will also be adding additional items and downloads, including an advent calendar, bunting, and ornaments, as we get closer to the holidays, so be sure to check out the shop for updates!

{happy weekend}

Hi everyone!  I’m heading out a bit early to get a head start on some projects I’m working on for next week, including a super-fun collaboration that I can’t wait to tell you all about.  I’ve been noticing, as the days get shorter and shorter, I find myself trying to squeeze out every last drop of sunlight possible, making the weekends more and more precious.  Is the same thing happening for you?  Well, in the meantime…
