Aerie’s whimsical spring video showed up in my inbox yesterday and swept me off my feet. It doesn’t necessarily make me want to buy their clothing, but I do want to run around in a field with a huge balloon, build a blanket fort, and fly a kite!

I love Jenn Ski’s work. It’s the perfect blend of retro + modern. You know when you see something you like so much you feel sick inside because you wish you made it yourself? That’s how Jenn Ski’s illustrations make me feel. SIGH. Her blog is amazing too. You can purchase prints here.
I can’t wait to eat turkey next week, and when I say turkey I mean mashed potatoes and gravy. I think anything with gravy on it is delicious. It must be because I grew up in the south. Don’t forget to enter the snowflake card giveaway. I’ll announce the winner Monday!

The first time I saw a “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster it seemed like a great mantra to hang on your wall. Now that I’ve seen it a million times on a million different walls, I’m getting a little sick of it! However, I recently discovered that there is a history behind these posters [...]
This week I sketched some Halloween-y things. I love the ink + watercolor combination. I plan to experiment more with this in the future. I’ve never received a Halloween greeting card from anyone, but I figured I might as well print something up for the shop anyway (you know, for those card-sending fiends). So without further [...]
