Sabrina's Weekend Snapshots

This weekend we enjoyed the sunshine by spending lots of time outside. The Yerba Buena Gardens are a delightful place to hang out on a sunny day. There's tons of fun things to do with kids or adults, but one of our favorites is to ride the Charles Looff Carousel.

 We went to the Farmers Market at the Ferry Building on Saturday and picked up some of our favorite snacks - peas!

 The market was bustling with visitors and bursting with fresh produce and fruit. I loved how the colors of these carrots blended together so I had to snap a picture.

After the market we rode the ferry to Sausalito. It was the perfect way to wind down after such a busy morning and the boys loved being on board the big boat.

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

We took off for Big Sur this weekend, staying at a house we rent every year for the 4th of July weekend.  We hang out with some of our favorite friends for a weekend full of dinners under the backyard tree, beach trips, and general loafing about.

The house is one of several on a family ranch - Jude was really into the cows - he and his buddy, Hugo, learned how to say "caca de vache" - they both found it very amusing to poke cow patties with sticks while shrieking and shouting "eeeeeewwww!!"

My family and I spent the weekend in Healdsburg, CA visiting friends on their farm. It was a beautiful break from the city and the kids loved the farm animals!

The boys found this tiny little frog hanging out on a pole nearby. We loved the colors and pattern of its skin. Hope you all had a wonderful summer weekend!

Studio Snapshots!

Here's Jon working our vintage Vandercook press. This is the press that started it all, originally manufactured in 1947, it lived in Eunice's garage when Hello!Lucky was just beginning.

We strive to stay organized, and being the visual people we are, color coding and alphabetizing envelopes make assembly much more efficient! Above is just a portion of our envelope collection. We're really loving the Clover (kelly green) color right now.

Another way to stay organized with ribbon storage. We are always looking for a particluar shade or pattern, so it's helpful to have them side by side!

Our designers Anna H. and Shauna looking sharp and stylish!

Faye was created by a talented employee years ago. If you look closely, she's made up of Cherry Blossom wedding invitations! She likes to keep watch atop our studio stairs and greet all of our visitors. Can you say pretty in pink?!

Studio Snapshots

We admit it, one of our latest obsessions is Instagram. We're having a lot of fun taking little breaks in our day and posting some studio shots to this highly addictive app. Do you use Instagram? We'd love to see what you're posting so follow us or tell us your account name in the comments! We're @helloluckycards - nice and simple!

We're anxiously awaiting the android version so more of our friends and studio mates can join in on the fun.
