Thank you to everyone who I’ve been lucky enough to have done custom stationery and letterpress pieces for! You have really come through for me during this challenging time and although I’ve been blatantly slow at getting out my last few orders due to my not rotten fetus but rotten pregnancy, I appreciate your understanding and concern. I head back to the doctor tomorrow for a check up and hopefully things will be good.  In the mean time, thanks for being patient about your jobs and for letting me take extra time to finish them. I have been humbled at all of your positive responses and kindness as well as with your flexibility with my current situation. Thanks for waiting, thanks for patience and thanks for all the virtue in you to sympathize with my blehness. I love you all, and appreciate …

So I’ve been MIA. I regret to inform you that blogging will slow down significantly and I will not be taking any custom jobs until the spring due to the fact that I’m expecting. I am very ill and have had to turn away jobs until then to maintain strength needed to sustain the baby. I’ll spare you the gory details, but just know I’m not being a slacker, I’m just not taking to this pregnancy well. You can still purchase items in my Etsy shop that are pre-printed and I’ll have new product to launch in the spring to celebrate getting this baby out of me and into this lovely world!  Thanks for understanding, Adrienne

This is for all you Canadians out there! It’s fall here and the aspens are turning. This was inspired out of my love for large maple trees and their gorgeous red foliage in the fall. I’ve tried twice to plant the Autumn Blaze Maple in our yard but it seems our winters are too harsh for a young sapling! Quite pathetic and disheartening. So in honor of the maples that won’t grow in my zone despite what the local nursery says, I’ve made some lovely fall Maple Leaf cards. These are special because they don’t just come in a ClearBox, but in their own chocolate box with a letterpress maple leaf detail on the lid. AND, the envelopes are printed with maple leafs too! They come in a set of six and are getting listed in the shop today. You’ll also see that …

My amazing mom was a caterer when I was young and instilled early in me a LOVE for all things dishes. Instead of paying taxes she purchased (legally, mind you) dishes for her business. Among her collection are original Fiesta ware, Villeroy and Boch, Waterford Crystal, Spode, Mikasa, Dansk, and more. I have to say my favorite memories as a child were scouting antique stores for Fiesta ware or the unique little tea cup or tea pot. I remember for one of my birthdays as a young girl wanting an english tea party. I think I was turning 5. We set out round tables in the backyard and everyone wore their fancy garb. One of the gifts my mom gave me was my first teapot, a china blue squarish pot perfect for a small child’s fingers. I haven’t collected much myself since …

In wrapping up pink week and a little weddings on the side, this next giveaway is for anyone but specifically for those that might be writing a lot of thank you notes! Think, bridal showers, baby showers, wedding gifts. The goods:A set of 30 pink weathered notes with envelopes (blank interior). Even if you don’t have a ton of thank you notes to write, these would be great split up in sets of 10 for holiday gifts or valentines gifts (I know it’s far off but just a thought)! To enter:  You need to place a Go PINK with Dingbat Press banner in your side bar or on a post with something about breast cancer awareness for the following week. Then comment back here with your blog address. If you don’t have a blog you can make a small contribution to the …
