Luci Soli is a French label, handcrafting goods to delicately & purposefully adorn a kids space. We are unsure of whether the crescent moon wall hanging was a gift for Eunice's little lady or for herself. Either way we don’t blame her, it’s adorable and we will all enjoy its presence on the door handle to the world’s cutest nursery.
To purchase one of the treasures featured below visit the Luci Soli etsy shop and get your baby a bear even you will drool over!

Happy Birthday Sakura! Let’s get the ball rolling!
We hope you had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend! We spent the long weekend with lots of BBQing, swimming in pools, lakes, & rivers, and of course the Alameda Flea Market! Here are a few of our favorite finds from last Sunday's market.
Independence Day is the perfect day for BBQ, sparklers, and a side of DIY. This workshop hosted by Joya of Joya Rose Designs and Katherine of The Habitat Factory is the exact kind of summer soiree we spend our days swooning over. This step by step tutorial will guide you into creating your own beautiful indigo dyed linen napkins. See full DIY here.
We can't wait to throw an indigo dip dye party of our own! Happy 4th of July!
Father's Day is coming up this weekend and we have the perfect printables to customize your gift! Get him a pack of socks, a 6 pack of his favorite beer, or a nice bottle of wine and throw on our free printable to make it extra special- PDF's linked below. We suggest white cardstock for the sock printables and white sticker paper for the labels.
*quick tip: you can always use double stick tape in place of sticker paper!
Les Petits Carreaux is a new children's clothing label which is perfectly adorable. It was created by mom duo Stéphanie Ross & Alice Shamreiz who design and produce the line between France & California. They draw their inspiration from classic French couture, it's overwhelmingly chic and sans bubblegum pink/ruffle overload - a breath of fresh air! They strive for simple lines, plaids & patterns, and ultimately comfort. Our one complaint is that they don't design for grown ups...
See the full collection on their online store and get 20% off your order with code LPCHELLO- valid the month of June.

We are flea fanatics so finding our way to Alameda the first Sunday of the month is a must. Amongst this outdoor treasure trove is everything from antique furniture to clothing and accessories. It's the perfect pastime for vintage seekers and it's family friendly. The market is spread out on the Alameda waterfront overlooking San Francisco. There's a lot to see so make it a day trip and bring an appetite, it's chock-full of gourmet food trucks offering up every cuisine imaginable & kettle corn carts you can't avoid because it's aroma is undeniable. The next one falls on July 6th so be sure to mark your calendars!
Here are a few of our favorite finds from yesterday's excursion.
The Louie Awards is an annual ceremony put on by the Greeting Card Association in honor of our fellow card producers. We have been lucky enough to be included in this fancy affair alongside our favorite designers. Last year we were grateful to win an award in the Thanks category. This year we were claimed best in two categories, thanks & congrats, and received a final win for Card of The Year! It was a huge honor to be involved and an even bigger one to take home several awards! This left us with the obvious feeling of self-gratification and it’s all due to you guys, so thanks so much for all your support. You truly did make our day!
See all the winners here.
We just got back from the National Stationery Show in New York & what a wonderful experience it was! Each year we are so impressed & inspired by all the wonderful new card designs. It truly is a smorgasbord of eye candy & we couldn't be happier to be a part of it. We attended a few lovely & carefully crafted soirees with our industry pals & the Louie Awards Gala where we brought in three awards with one Card of The Year Award for our Sunny Day card! It was a huge honor, especially when surrounded by such talented people!
Overall a complete success! Thanks to all you guys for all the support!

We were cracking ourselves up at the act of dressing eggs in more than just sriracha & salt. We wrapped them in yarn & washi tape, and fabricated tiny hats & bows, because bunnies can't socialize unless adorned in whimsical garb, obviously.
Share your bunny eggs with us on Instagram using #hellofunnybunny, we would love to see what you come up with!

Thanks and #WRITE_ON!
was kind enough to let us pick out a little somethin’ for a DIY project! Naturally we were drawn to SF local- Yellow Owl Workshop’s stamp-carving kit, though it was a tough call since they offer a ton of great DIY kits. We decided we wanted to do a bandana using a neon color palette, our most recent obsession. Follow the instructions below to create your own stamped bandana. In addition we will offer up $40 gift cards to UncommonGoods to TWO lucky winners. Find contest guidelines below!
created this genius Carve-A-Stamp Kit that contains everything you need to master the art of stamp carving.
The kit comes equipped with: • 2 rubber blocks mounted on wood for carving • 1 brilliant red ink pad • 1 pencil • 1 wood carving knife with five tips & a tip remover • 1 template featuring different designs • 1 piece of tracing vellum • 1 muslin bag
What you will need in addition for this project: • 1 yard of muslin • washable/ fabric friendly neon ink pads • scissors • neon thread (optional) • a sewing machine (optional) • one extra block of rubber (optional)
*All of these items can be found at Michaels, or the craft store of your choice. STEP ONE:
Carving the dot pattern stamp-
We used the semi circle tip in order to cut out our dots for our reversed dot stamp. First use your pencil to draw scattered dots. Then push the semi-circle into the rubber, rotate 360 degrees, and pop the rubber out. Repeat until your pattern is complete.
Carving the star pattern stamps-
Draw the star onto the rubber with your pencil. Then use the flat knife to trace the outline of your star. After, use that same tool to remove ¼ inch of the entire surrounding area. In order to achieve only the outline of the star, you will then use the wide “V” carving tool to remove the rubber from the inside of the star.
*note: If you wish to create another star stamp, repeat the steps listed above with your extra rubber pad.
Cutting out your bandana- Cut a 23 inch square out of your muslin. This allows for a ½ seam allowance on each side. Using your neon thread, iron, pin, & sew the edges in.
*note: if you would not like to sew the edges, cut out a 22 inch square & leave it raw!
Stamping your bandana- Using the dot stamp you have created, line up the block along the edge and make a border all the way around. Then fill the center with your star stamps as seen above.
Protect your fabric- Wait until the ink has dried (a few hours). Place a piece of muslin over your pattern and iron each side without water/steam. Allow for a week or so before washing, then hand wash or machine wash alone for first rinse.
Strut around in your new bandana.
We made two bandanas, one for our pen pal, and another tiny one for Imogen because we couldn’t resist, duh.
Our winner's will be announced Friday the 21st!
