Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a day of reflection and gratitude, and if one is lucky, the companionship of loved ones. I’m ever so thankful for the kindnesses of life; health and friends, dear family and the opportunities we all share each rising sun. Every breath is a blessing, isn’t it?

Lovelies, this Thanksgiving, I want to thank you for your fellowship & support. In gratitude, I lettered up a little art print that you can print and share with your special ones. This printable is totally free – all you have to do is click on the lettering and it will open up at full size. (It’s designed to fit onto a letter-sized sheet of cardstock.)

Enjoy the print, thank you for being you (!) and have a delightful Thanksgiving!!


Don’t know about you, but for me, fall is a time of reflection and deep thought… I decided to celebrate the arrival of the season with four free printable posters; each one features a quote from a famous artist. (Click on the pic for a full-size version.) Each poster is typeset with my newest font family, Mirabelle.

A new poster will be released each Tuesday this month ~ Enjoy, Lovelies!

Valentine’s Day Printable Love Note

Pick your favorite sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ paper & fire up that printer because we’ve got a printable perfect for you and your Beloved.

Simply download and print the PDF, trim each card at the crop marks, and pair with A7 envelopes. We think cream French Cordtone paper & rustic kraft envelopes look particularly lovely. Wrap your envelope in black silk ribbon and seal with red wax for a super-sultry presentation. Ooh la la!

seamless tileable paper texture background wallpaper

I have a fun little goodie for you today – a set of bright, candy-colored seamless paper textures! Huzzah!

All of the files are jpgs, and are bundled together into a ZIP file for easy-peasy downloading. You can download the set by clicking on the image above or by clicking here. Then just pick your favorite swatch & upload it to your wedding website for a great background with punch. The swatches make great desktop wallpapers too. I promise they will tile perfectly, with no weird lines or repeating patterns. (Who wants their virtual undies showing?!)

Fun fun!!!

P.S. I know it’s been a while since I last posted… I’ve been focused on a few really exciting custom orders that are finally coming to fruition! I’m ridiculously excited to see them “in the real world” so there are going to be lots of fun reveals in the weeks to come. The brides get a first peek of course. 😉


Yowsers, taxes are due by midnight tonight! If you’re working some last minute number magic today, here is one of my favorite cocktail recipes to keep you going.

Green, of course, to drown your sorrows if you still owe Uncle Sammie.
