em’s first sail

em's first sail

This happened recently. Em’s first sail with her sail-loving-daddy. The wind died down as they were coming in but Em loved it all so, so much!

Hope you have a happy weekend!

fourth of july 2013

July 4, 2013

How was your Fourth of July? Ours was great! We spent the weekend at the lake house with lots of friends + family. There was sailing, kayaking, swimming, lounging, great talks, lots of music and late night games. So much fun! Oh, and Em played her first game of Cooties, which she loved.

Our house-proud custom note cards are proving to be quite popular. And, this gorgeous + grand home is one of the latest we’ve designed and letterpress printed!

recent work // gemma’s baptism invites + favor tags

gemma baptism invite + tag

We recently completed these sweet baptism invitations + matching favor tags for a little girl named Gemma. The design was a custom spin on the baptism invitations available in our Etsy shop. We replaced the cross with her monogram and added a beautiful script typeface for her name.

dress rehearsal

dance review 2013

In addition to printing + house sketching, this weekend is Em’s first dance recital. I’m really looking forward to it. Here’s a pic from her dress rehearsal yesterday. Little three year olds in fluffy, sparkly, matching dresses? Love.

I never planned on putting her in dancing so early. I thought I’d enroll her around age 4 or 5, the same age I was when I enrolled as a little girl. But, thanks to Angelina Ballerina, Em started doing dance moves around the house and knew some dance lingo. So, at 2.5 years old, we placed her in a combo ballet + tap class. I’m so happy we did. She really loves it and has made a few friends!

homemade bubbles

homemade bubbles

Yesterday, Kacey used this recipe to make bubbles for Em when we ran out of solution. I was skeptical, but they were amazing! Truly. Big, long-lasting + colorful bubbles. We used both a big wand and an automatic bubble blower. Both worked great. I was most impressed with the bubble blower. With regular solution, we’ve only been able to get it to produce consistently small bubbles. With the homemade recipe, it made big monstrous, stacking bubbles. Em had a blast popping them!
