covetable chronicle:
botanical garland by rifle paper co.

I'm rather excited to share another giveaway from Chronicle Books! Today we have a set of Botanical Garlands designed by Rifle Paper Co. I love this concept, as it's reusable and you don't have to stick to just standard greetings. I for one, would make a banner that read "Oh Happy Day" with this fun little kit. Rifle has partnered with Chronicle for several brilliant collaborations, I am quite fond of the entire Botanicals series and have gotten much use out of the labels & stickers.

To enter the giveaway:
Head over to the Crow & Canary Facebook page and like or comment on the Chronicle giveaway post at the top of the page. Really, that's all. I will randomly choose one winner the afternoon of Friday, 11/2/12 and announce it on the C&C Facebook page.

Just a reminder: Comments on this blog will not be considered an entry. Good luck!

I feel super fortunate to have met Jen and Lisa of Farewell Paperie at the Tradeshow Bootcamp session in LA this last February. I really hit it off with both of these lovely ladies and their line of paper goods is a brilliant mix of laugh out loud funny wit and just plain gorgeous design.

Farewell Paperie just relocated their studio headquarters to Seattle, WA earlier this summer; their studio is located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle and is in such an awesome space!

I had the pleasure of taking a little peek around last month and meeting studio dog extraordinaire, Harley, seriously - this guy is a charmer. Keep your eyes on this talented duo, I'm sure there will be some fun open studio events to come and definitely more fabulous product on the horizon. Thanks again, L & J!
