{interview with small business maven, rena tom}

This last month I've had the honor of contributing to some fantastic websites. I was truly flabbergasted when Rena Tom of Rare Device fame, approached me for an interview. She's profiled some true design greats and I'm honored to have a place in the mix.

I've also had the distinct pleasure of contributing several holiday card round-ups for Curbly this year. I met Curbly's editor-in-chief, Chris Gardner, at Alt Summit and it's always such fun to put together some picks for them. The latest: '12 Stylish Modern Holiday Cards' is up now.

And today, my curated collection: 'Paper Goods Paradise' was posted on Cargoh. Are you selling your awesome goods on Cargoh yet? If not, you really ought to be! It's a fabulous site and there's plenty of room for more great design.

So, I think that's enough about me for a bit. Sorry to plaster my mug all over this post. HOLIDAZE posts to come next week!

creative crush: maemae paperie

Surely you've seen Mae Mae Paperie's super lovely (and limited edition) synchronized swimmers calendar? It's definitely in my top ten favorites 2012 calendars! I'm also digging their sweet animal cards and am always a sucker for a good address stamp. Mae Mae Paperie is offering 20% off all orders until 11/30, with the promo code: FALL2011 - don't delay.

hot off the press from tabletop made.

I seriously adore everything that Tabletop Made touches. Lucky me, they just released a slew of new card in their Etsy shop. The "You're a Peach" card would be positively perfect for Kimberley, our east coast C&C rep. I'm particularly loving this postcard - I can think of at least a dozen people I want to send it to!

You may already be familiar with Betsy & Iya's fabulous line of jewelry, I'm certainly a fan - they've recently opened a lovely storefront in NW Portland. They seriously have the cutest goods and I'm pleased to share that SusyJack* is now being stocked there.

If you happen to be in Portland, be sure to make a visit at Betsy & Iya on Friday, November 25th as they are one of many great retailers (and event founders) participating in Little Boxes PDX. This one day event is an alternative to "big box" Black Friday shopping, participating retailers are offering discounts and you have the option to enter a raffle with super sweet prizes for every single participating shop that you visit. Shop indie!

printmaker dujour: sugar paper

We all occasionally need this simple reminder. Printed by our friends at Sugar Paper in Los Angeles and hand-lettered by Molly Jacques. Fancy a peek into their shop and studio? I promise you won't be disappointed.
