When we spotted these silk screened cotton ribbons by Pikku on Parcel Post we stopped right in our tracks. Pikku has an entire collection of pillows, office accessories, ribbons, and wrapping paper! What a perfect coincidence it is that our custom birth announcements by Pikku go hand in hand with these accessories. We personalized our Mums birth announcement to match their lemony color scheme, and it's truly a match made from heaven.

Check out the entire Pikku shop here, and our Pikku birth announcements here!

National Stationery Show

Yellow Owl Workshop LED Card As always, there was a lot to take in at the National Stationery Show!

New York Gift Fair

Hello!Lucky at NYGIF 2009 We just wrapped up exhibiting at the NY Gift Fair - it was a little quiet given the economy (crickets..!...tumbleweeds!)...but that's okay because we still got lots of inspiration and made new friends. Plus it's always great to catch up with our fellow designers/small biz owners and the wonderful independent boutiques that carry our cards. There's Chun Yee (intrepid founder of our London office) and Sabrina in our booth...


We were completely smitten with Pikku's new stationery - it's a beautiful combination of pretty, mod design, gorgeous letterpress and hand stitching. That Valerie is so talented - everything she does incorporates pretty textile-inspired details...

Pikku Journals

Pikku was also showcasing these lovely silk-screen wood wall calendars. So cute!


Angie and Ted of Poketo were there with their super-nip line of t's, plates, wallets and other delectable collectibles.
