Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

I much prefer 2010′s turquoise to 2011′s honeysuckle. I guess I’m just not a pink person…what do you guys think?

terrariums for sale

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

I spent the weekend making some terrariums for christmas gifts. Terrariums are great for offices or any small space that needs a little green beauty added to it and they are very very easy to maintain. I made a few extra in case any of you are interested in having one of your own. Email me and I’ll send better pictures and pricing. Local purchases only.

I can hardly believe it, but it’s been one year since I started fancy seeing you here. So much has happened since then.…I’ve written more than I ever thought I would—137 posts to be exact. I’ve set up my etsy shop. Oh, and one other little thing, I got the guts to quit my job. It’s really been the best year and I look forward to expanding my blog and my shop. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

As a thank you, I’m giving away a set of  letterpressed cards from my shop to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment on your favorite post so far. I’ll announce the winner next week.

home sweet home

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

I just bought this Home Sweet Home print by Seb Lester on Keep Calm Gallery. Let’s just say it was an early Christmas present to myself. I had a hard time deciding between the Home Sweet Home print and the Stars print below, but I ended up deciding on the Home Sweet Home print because of its unique color changing paper, (see the video of its magic-ness here.) Keep Calm Gallery has a great selection of prints, tea towels and other great designed pieces that make great gifts. And definitely check out Seb Lester’s website—he’s a typography genius.
