So...I think I'm turning over a new leaf! Two posts in one day!

Here's what Leigh Anne and I have been working on. Stay tuned for new photos every day or two on the Dry Goods blog. We've started painting (a few shades of green, for now) and as we scrub (and scrub, and scrub) off the dust, the vintage beauty of this amazing space is shining through.

Read all about it here.

Spring Update

In the midst of working on a thousand other things, I am screenprinting the pages for a new set of weekly planners for spring and summer.

I've just finished the first one: a custom planner for a customer who bought one from me last year. I love the colors that she chose; they seemed too bold at first, but now that the book has come together, I think it looks great.

Stay tuned for more color choices in the coming weeks, and let me know if you'd like your own custom book. I'm using french paper, and it's beautiful. I surprised myself and ordered some of the Speckletone...For years I've resisted the "recycled look", but when I started printing on the white speckled paper, it didn't look nearly as crunchy as I thought it would. I really like it!

In other news, my Etsy shop isn't being updated much these days due to a few other big projects going on. I'll be moving into an amazing shared studio/retail/community space in about a month, and in the meantime I'm inhaling a lot of dust and splitting my fingernails cleaning it up. More news on that to come. Be excited!
