pooch party!

I absolutely couldn't resist sharing this sweet soiree by One Charming Party. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Sara and Brittany work their magic during Nicole Hill Gerulat's photo workshop at Alt Summit. These ladies are all amazing at their jobs, consider me a groupie!

Being a bonafide dog enthusiast, the only objection I have to this party is that I wasn't invited. One Charming Party has generously included links to their adorable invitations, doggie bags and cupcake toppers.

Many thanks to the lovely Lyndsey for the head's up on this fun fiesta.

goody giveaway no. 11

Rebekah Potter, the artist behind BloKs, sent me a link to her newest project this morning and I was just plain smitten. Rebekah collaborated with an awesome team to produce a short film that features her original art work. It absolutely put a smile on my face and I had to watch it a second time! Take a look for yourself here.

Rebekah had kindly sent me one her BloKs featuring a bird awhile back, I've been meaning to post a giveaway for it for eons and this was the perfect reminder. This sweet song bird reminds me that spring is just around the corner here in Portland.

printmaker dujour: pistachio press

Pistachio Press has a lovely collection of assorted letterpress printed goods, including... masks! How cool is that? I don't have kids, but must confess I'd love to color and sport my own mask. Fun photo shoot idea! Since it's getting close to the National Stationery Show, I might also add that you can check out this lovely line in Booth 1664 at the Javits next month.
