I added a couple new cards to the shop today!
The “parasite” new baby card makes me laugh so hard. This card will stand out at a baby shower for sure. Unless it’s a parasite themed baby shower, which seems highly unlikely.
An anniversary card that doesn’t sugarcoat the truth!
I brightened up the colors on the bumped uglies birthday card. It used to be printed on kraft paper in dark brown ink and needed a little pizazz.
I recently added a new houseplant to my collection. A pencil cactus! How cool is this little guy?
This is random, but can we talk about snacks for a sec? Mug brownies were my usual go to, but over the past year or so I’ve noticed a slow shift towards savory/spicy snacks instead. I guess it’s a getting older thing. On occasion I even have to scrape excess icing off my cupcakes. What is happening to me?! Anyway, these are my favorite snacks lately. What are yours?
Sesame Sticks—I don’t know what my deal is with these, but I could eat them until my stomach ruptured. Luckily I always run out before that happens. You can get them at Trader Joe’s and other places too.
Vesta Dry Hot Sauce—This dry hot “sauce” is made locally in Raleigh, and I discovered it at Gather’s Made by Men event last year. I love to sprinkle a heavy dusting on plain hummus and eat it with tortilla chips (or carrot sticks if I’m feeling healthy).
Garden of Eatin’ Red Hot Blues Tortilla Chips—Another drool-inducing spicy snack. Warning: don’t eat these straight out of the bag. Your hand will keep putting chips into your mouth whether you want it to or not. There’s no stopping until you’ve eaten every chip, torn the bag in half, and licked the residual spices out of every crevice. (Not that I’ve ever done that.)
Here are a handful of sketchbook pages that turned into recent new products!
Wit & Whistle pop-up shop this weekend! I’ll be selling my goods at Madewell in Durham (at Southpoint) from 1-4 on Saturday, May 2nd. Perfect timing if you still need a Mother’s Day card! If you’re planning to come and hoping to pick up a specific product let me know, and I’ll make sure I bring you one.
Grass doesn’t grow well in my shady yard, so I’m not exactly a lawn snob. Maybe you could call my lawn “creative”? Any green thing that will grow and cover the dirt is pretty much okay by me. The front yard is nearly completely covered in a moss carpet (with a smattering of assorted weeds), and we have a small patch of grass out back. Every fall I buy a bag of clover seed and go nuts throwing it around out there. Like magic, tons of soft clover leaves come popping up in the spring. If you can’t beat the weeds, join them!
