Imogen's Birth Announcement

Eunice's baby girl Imogen was born on August 16th of this year. For the birth announcement, Eunice went for a hand-illustrated approach for the main, and drew inspiration from our sunshine stationery for the french/chinese insert. She used printstagram for the photo. Printstagram is an awesome service that prints your instagram photos on little squares and ships them to you within the week! We are all smitten with the outcome of this birth announcement!birth announcement

All you need is a blank tee, a sharpie, and your kids favorite illustration! Quick tips to avoid fading after wash: Soak overnight in a quart of cool water with a cup of white vinegar. Always turn the tee inside out before washing.

Alameda Flea Market

The Alameda Flea Market was back yesterday, and I think we all felt like the shopper pictured here: on high from all the fabulous treasures we discovered!

These vintage fruit crates would be great at a rustic fall wedding -- for holding programs, a photo booth backdrop, to serve cold drinks, or just stacked for ambiance!

We noticed some gorgeous vintage jewelry this time, and even spotted some people shopping for wedding rings -- so sweet!

Fancy bling was everywhere...

These vintage collectible cars rev'ed us up!

And we're nuts about this squirrel rocking his fluffy ears. (The Flea is always a great source of vintage illustration inspiration!)

Adorable hummingbirds with 40s flair.

Some lovely boho quilts made with recycled Indian fabrics

Bye, Flea!  We'll see you next month!

Custom Business Card and a Sneak Peek!

 

I have a super amazing nanny, Beny, who is literally the French Mary Poppins (as seen here with a couple of fairy charges) and recently whipped up a fun business card for her French immersion camp. The art was pulled from our spiffy new Kids Love Candy valentines card that will be released next year - here's a little sneak peek!  One of many exciting new valentines we have up our sleeve. Can't wait to reveal them all!
