My friends bought a great spanish style apartment and I made them this stationery set as a housewarming gift.
All the stamps are from photos I took, you can see the photos here and here.

The A2 envelope for the half sheet. The address is a rubber stamp too.



Folded cards for shorter notes.



Their fountain and address are stamped on the envelopes.

Guess what's all over my house


I'm still feeling under the weather so I stayed in today and did some organizing of my file drawers. I have an entire drawer of glitter that I've never used. I printed out large letters in different fonts then traced them onto cards. Then I used a thin paint brush to apply pva glue inside the guides. If you try this, I suggest using a straight edge, it's hard to make the lines straight. I want to try different colors of cards and shapes instead of letters.
Hope you have a good weekend and don't forget about the home ec bake sale tomorrow.

The greatest movie theater- red velvet seats, cherry coke, + ice cream!

I mostly miss my views- from my window (above) and behind my building (below)

What's a rainy day when there's sunshine year round?
I love these postcards of my favorite state:

Recap of Trunk Show @ Reform School


{Outdoor chalkboard decorated by Tootie, one of the owners.}
Saturday was a lot of fun! We had treats to snack on all day and a constant stream of people coming in.


Jill K's hamburger cookies!


Krank Press' chocolate cupcakes

Tony made brownies on behalf of paper pastries but they were not so beautiful- delicious though!


Krank Press Sewn notebooks + heart signs.


Owl Valentine's from Jill K.


PP had two tables up on the stage. I would blow kisses to try to get people to come in. Most of the time it worked!


Success! Now I have to get ready for LA Food Fest this weekend.

New & Improved

I bet you know someone this would be perfect for.


After a lot of consideration and helpful suggestions, the state cards have new colors!
Texas is bold and beautiful in blue on this white card, and comes in a red envelope.
Red, white, and blue just like their flag.


New York needed to be...tougher. I thought of maybe a red card for the "big apple" but it just didn't work. I love the gray!


Big Sky Country- just seems fitting to be on blue.


Plus a new stationery set, with 6 cards and 6 envelopes.


Hello, I love you

I have been very busy! I've added some new designs to the line and updated a few old favorites for Valentine's day.

This could work for a friend, sibling, parent, or that special someone.

:)


I love you honey and I miss you in special colors for V day.




A pack of 6 simple + sweet notes.
