Come see us live!

Like Gillian said a few days ago, we will be at 3 local craft fairs in November and December. The first 2 are Christmas-themed events, so we will be bringing all the journals and notebooks you see in our LOP etsy shop as well as a lot of new things that you can only see if you visit us in person! We expect to have gift tags, gift card holders, gift boxes, calendars, decorations and more. We will also be bringing some of our sample size baby and girls dresses with us to the first event! What is most exciting for me is that you can see a sneak peek of the paper flowers coming to our etsy shops in the spring! We will be bringing a bouquet with us as table decoration.

Here’s a quick look at the gift tags and one of the gift boxes:

And still we create!

And still we create!

It feels like no time since I last posted, but it is two weeks. So what have we been doing?

Caroline continues her quest for beautiful day light and is closing in getting all the photos taken. She even has a butterfly who keeps her company!

I have been designing tea towels using family recipes. Since they were written by my mother and grandmother, it was interesting to see how women communicated recipes with one another. Many of them lack instructions or oven temperature, the assumption apparently being that the people baked so much, the basic knowledge was common. It is  quite a contrast with modern recipes that second guess every question and concern. It would also appear that they were often written at times when food wasn’t plentiful, so use small quantities. After much debate we decided that I would add some social history to the leaflet, along with English to American translations!
