we the postcard

Untitled-5

 

Today happens to be (not my) Presidents’ Day, and I can’t think of a better time to share this project by my friends at Curious + Company. Full disclosure: this is not a sponsored post, but I am a bit biased as those ladies have designed my website and are also personal friends. They recently launched their latest project, aptly named We the Postcard. Celebrating some of their favorite quotes about America, human rights, and civic responsibility, these cards make it easy for us to stay in touch with our elected officials, as well as patriotic friends and family. Most importantly (in my opinion), is that 50% of the proceeds are donated to the ACLU, Natural Resources Defense Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Head over to their site to order (don’t miss the Presidents’ Day sale) and show your postcard pride!

Mes amis…it’s December, which means I can now officially say “happy holidays” or joyeuses fêtes! This wallpaper marks a year of desktop fleurish designs, and this one just might be my favorite. It’s been such a treat to collaborate with Lindsey Buck of The Hive Studio – I hope you’ve enjoyed all of her designs. In case you don’t know, she has a lovely Etsy shop filled with beautiful art prints, cards, gift wrap and more, and is accepting custom orders for a few more days. Hashtag shop small, forever and always. Welcome the season by refreshing your desktop – download the (free) designs below!

I just received my first gift of the season – custom silhouettes of Henry and Marie, courtesy of Le Papier Studio! Silhouettes of the kids have been on my wish list since they were born, and so you can imagine my delight when founder Vana Chupp reached out about a holiday collaboration. Creating heirloom silhouettes is a craft, and she has perfected it, specializing in a modern approach. From personalized print + paper artwork to jewelry, each item is crafted with love, to be treasured for years to come. Children grow too quickly, so preserving this moment in time is so important to me. I’m excited to be partnering with Vana to offer one lucky winner a $100 credit to her shop – enter to win on Instagram!

November is a time “to gather”, to give thanks, to pause and savor the season. Fall is fleeting, and the holidays are fast approaching. This beautiful desktop wallpaper is designed by Lindsey Buck of The Hive Studio – we’ve been sharing a French word or phrase each month. Since Thanksgiving is an American holiday, this month was a bit tricky, but I feel this sentiment resonates worldwide, don’t you? You can see all of our designs thus far here, and download the latest here:

While October is about much more than Halloween, you wouldn’t know it in our household – the kids started talking about their costumes in August! Just in case you don’t have toddlers gearing you up for the holiday, this month’s wallpaper should help. The spooktacular design (sorry I can’t help myself) is designed by Lindsey Buck of The Hive Studio. Each month we highlight a French word or phrase…see all the designs here, and download the latest:
