Trick Or Treat?

In our efforts to conserve, we've promised ourselves to not turn on the heat until October 1st. Today was the first time since last winter that we didn't crack a window in our studio space in spite of the brilliant sunshine outside. Crisp breezes over the choppy waters of Elliot Bay and Lake Washington, maple leaves turning red and gold, Halloween decorations in the windows of our neighborhood boutiques, and shopping for new accessories to help dazzle up last year's winter wardrobe... Fall is creeping in and we love it! In the spirit of the season, take a look at our latest Halloween card design, sprinkled with candy corn, licorice bats and sparkly glitter!

I Have A Vision

"I HAVE A VISION"! My husband and partner in all things paper related, Charlie, has learned to cringe at this proclamation of mine because it usually means that more manual labor tasks are barreling his way. This time he's been assigned to repainting our office from a dingy-looking mustard to a light sea foam color with white trim. It looks so fresh and clean, it is inspiring! I can't wait to start working in the "new" space, dreaming up new visions and card designs.

Summer Has Left The Building

Signs of Fall have arrived just in time for Labor Day weekend in Seattle. A gray sky, steady rainfall and a dampness in the air. It's the perfect day to stay cozy and warm indoors, make something tasty to eat and maybe even light a candle or two in homage to a fleeting Summer. Sigh...
