Holiday Shopping: New Mugs!

Well friends, we are officially in holiday shopping season! I hate Black Friday crowds, so I do most of my shopping early or online (mostly from small businesses though!), and I’ve just launched a new product line perfect for gifting!

Custom mugs featuring watercolor illustrations, motivational phrases and personalized designs are now available in the shop! Some designs, like those above, are favorite prints or cards already in the shop, while others are brand new!

One of my favorite designs is the first of several watercolor monogram designs. I’m hoping to release new designs seasonally, and this first wintery monogram features my original burgundy and blush floral elements. Order any letter here!

Bermuda must be getting to me: I’ve been designing lots of invitations inspired by the tropics lately. And since it’s Friday, I thought you guys deserved a double feature!

Perfect for a destination wedding, or if you want your big day to feel like a getaway! And since most destination weddings happen in the winter, now is the time to get going on them!

When you’re planning destination nuptials, you might as well go all out, right? So whether you’re thinking palms or pineapples, both of these invitations feature hand-lettered brush scripts, colorful watercolor and playful illustrations, perfect for a big day at the beach!

My favorite thing about these invitations is that they don’t necessarily scream WEDDING, but they will definitely let your guests know they’re in for a fun filled day—which means they’re also perfect for any other kind of bash! They can be easily modified for a piña colada themed birthday party, a backyard luau or foliage-filled dinner party. palm_6045

A few good clients

letterpress, stationery, handmade, 622 press

There’s nothing more valuable to an artist trying to make it than a truly supportive patron. Not only do they support you financially by buying your work (always important!), they boost your confidence and remind you that what you’re doing is indeed worthwhile. If you’re really lucky—like me—they also invite you to fabulous dinner parties and introduce you to their fabulous friends!

My favorite client ordered a set of stationery for each of her closest friends and family. It was a great collaborative experience in which she told me a little about each person’s personality and I designed a monogram or image just for them. I thought the pineapple card might be rather popular, so I printed extras and they’re also available here!
