Summer Vacation...

Our east coast summer vacation has been unexpectedly extended due to Hurricane Irene.  We've got family, beer, a propane grill and loads of board games.  Not to mention a luxurious extended break from the 150 degree days frying Austin.

Paper Flowers

We designed this invite for a wedding in Dripping Springs. The space was tactile: muted colors, weathered wood, and that Texas landscape that is endless and wild. We found inspiration for the breezy paper flower illustration in this image.

We did a little promo sending some letterpress love through the post: a 2-sided card in red and blue, folded, with the front fold die cut into a heart. La la love ya (don't mean maybe.)

West Elm and Etsy

We are 1 of 13 vendors participating in the Etsy pop-up event at West Elm this Saturday from 1-6 pm. We're rolling out a new collection just in time for this event. And we're pretty excited to be part of an event that also includes both cured meat and beautiful patterns.
