Raise your hand if you live near Fort Collin, CO! If your hand is in the air (like you just don’t care), chance are you’ve already heard of Heyday, the ultra-chic fashion, home and gift boutique in the Jessup Farm Artisan Village.
Owner Jen said it best, “Our philosophy is that simple-living doesn’t mean going without; it’s about effortlessly incorporating classic elements and well-worn pieces into your wardrobe and home — blending simplicity with luxury, old with new, large with small, fun with serious.”
And so in that vein, she chose a variety of cards—some funny, some heartfelt and all different occasions. Perfect to stock up for the holidays and well into the spring!
In addition to all my awesome new holiday cards, I’ve made a special edition of coasters this Christmas! Get a set for yourself and grab a set to pair with a bottle of vino for the perfect hostess gift. Just four sets available, so get them here today!
I know, I know, Halloween was just yesterday, but I’ve been working on holiday cards since August and I just can’t wait any more! My goal is always to have my Christmas cards written before Thanksgiving before things get too busy with the holidays, so for you fellow early birds, the 622 press holiday collection is now available!
I’ve brought back a few old favorites of course, but what I’m most excited about is all the new designs this year! I’ve been working with a lot of calligraphy-inspired fonts and hand lettering lately, so of course those informed many of the new designs.
I wanted to make sure I offered a card for every customer, so while some designs would appeal to a more traditional customer, others are simple and modern, while still others lend a bit of levity to the holiday season.
I also wanted to make sure I offered cards for those who don’t celebrate Christmas or don’t adhere to the religious aspect of the season (or simply don’t want to send out a card that does), so I’ve got some nondenominational salutations that are pretty darn funny if I do say so myself. Shop all the cards here!
The end is near! Today is the very last day to order anything from my etsy shop until after Christmas. By tomorrow evening I’ll be in Wisconsin! I’m so excited to see friends and family and am very much looking forward to a break from the small-business-owner hustle.
I’m so grateful to have been so busy this last month as I always struggle this time of year. I think it simply comes down to seeing less sunlight, but aside from the holidays, November-March are just not my favorite. One evening last week I decided I needed something to re-energize me, so I bought myself a little present: A bundle of a dozen or so fonts and hundreds of decorative elements and illustrations!
I’m so excited about my new toy and actually stayed up late last Friday night working on some new designs (I know, I’m pretty cool). So stay tuned for lots of new digital downloads in the shop soon—including this one, available here—which actually are available while I’m away!
Men! So hard to shop for, right? How many years in a row is too many when it comes to Gander Mountain/REI/Home Depot gift certificates? Never fear—whether it’s your boyfriend, best friend, brother or dad, I’ve got you covered this year!
Dudes are the worst because they rarely lust after objects like women… and when they really want something, they just go buy it. But you know what dudes need but never buy? Art! The numerals print above is perfect for his office—especially if he’s a numbers guy… your accountants, actuaries, general nerds.
Not so math-oriented? If there’s one thing all men love, it’s beer! This print was made by hand using antique wooden type on my antique printing press. Lots of antique things—hipsters and old souls alike love that shit. Round out your offering with these coasters and voila! A gift made in man cave heaven.
If you’re feeling super fancy, get in touch in the next week or so to commission a set of personalized coasters just for him! Pick a favorite color and I’ll print his name above “BEER goes here”! I can even print them with “scotch” or another favorite cocktail. Last day to order is December 9!
And finally, if your fella is a fashionista (or you just wish he was), here’s a collection that’s sure to please. First up: that skinny tie. Zuzu Wear is a husband and wife team handmaking ties in tons of fun fabrics and colors. Personally, I’m a fan of these floral numbers, but they offer some more traditional striped options as well.
While we’re on the subject of neckwear, I love a dude in a scarf. There’s nothing more manly than admitting it’s f*$#ing cold outside so let’s all bundle up, amiright? This hand-crocheted number will keep him cozy while not being overly full (read: girly).
In my opinion, no stylish person is complete without bespoke stationery. I made this set for my own mister with a lead typeface that’s friendly while remaining quite simple. Order your own set here!
