Recently, we had the honor of designing + letterpress printing these birth announcements for a sweet little girl named Marie. Baby Marie also happens to be Em’s cousin.

Congrats Kim + Billy on your beautiful baby girl!

stamps // 2014

While dropping off orders at the Post Office today, I noticed a few new stamp offerings. Here are some of my favorites. I bought a couple sheets of the Cut Paper Heart stamp for the Valentine cards we’ll be mailing out. It might be my favorite stamp ever.

A few weeks ago, we checked off Haymaker from our Ultimate Austin List when we stopped in for their happy  hour. The highlight was their Fluffernutty Cristo. Amazing. Even better with chocolate sauce [which we asked for].

presswork + the show

Lookie what I discovered this weekend. Presswork Shiraz, and I found it at our local Trader Joe’s. Looks like it features a Peerless? Or maybe a C&P? Not sure. But neat regardless! I’ve added it to my [very small] letterpress themed wine collection which consists of The Show printed by Hatch Show Print.

Here’s some holiday work we recently completed. Holiday cards with a custom house illustration. Plus a 5″ x 7″ print of their home.

How was your holiday? Happy I hope! We spent lots of time with family + friends. Made cookies for Santa, wrote him a note, made pretend snow and introduced a few classic Christmas movies to Em.

t.j. maxx online + runway

t.j. maxx runway + online

You guys, I just discovered something [two things, really] dangerous to my wallet! First, you know how T.J. Maxx sometimes has hidden gems that you discover? Maybe it’s a pair of Kate Spade shoes at a T.J. Maxx you don’t frequent. Well, I found out that T.J. Maxx has these special Runway stores that sell high end designer labels. Longchamp, Fendi, Gucci, Badgley Mischka, Jimmy Choo, Chloé and more. And when I was searching for the closest Runway store near me [Houston!], I found out that T.J. Maxx now sells online! There’s even a Runway section online. And, lots of things are returnable at their physical stores making it super easy.

And no, I wasn’t endorsed to blog about this. There are no referral links above either. I just love the store and am excited to share my discoveries with you!
