Chewing the Cud...

Morning gals and pals. I'm getting my act together today... nice and early :) don't you just love starting your day early??

This week has been a bit of a whirl-wind here at the store. We just finished up two incredible custom wedding suites for some of the most lovely clients and are so excited for them! They each get married tomorrow (right, you're thinking, leave it to you girls to pick up two of the biggest projects of the year with the same deadline :) But every last detail was so worth it!!

We also did a fab table setup for Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation Event this week. Such a fun project, a little out of our usual routine, but for such an incredible cause. If you have never heard of it, I would highly recommend checking it out. Tickets always sell out so quickly, but I think that it is a great event to participate in because it bring many talented chefs together under one big tent in the summer time!! I'll be posting pictures on our facebook page soon!

We have also been getting tons of super cool and fly and fresh new goodies here at the shop. All of those special orders from the Stationery Show are finally rolling in... yipppeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Today I'm spotlighting Chewing the Cud, because their fabric gift wrap and letterpress lovelies make me SWOON! It's amazing how far a simple concept can go with the right textiles :) Based in Oakland, California the fabulous designer behind this line has a good sense of what I'm all about... and what I think you are all about too! Bright colors, blind letterpress printing, and the final little details that make her goodies impossible to not take right home with you!

These adorable little bundles here are an extension of Cud's super fun and eco friendly gift wrap. They are great for bottle of wine... a special touch around a jar of flowers from the garden, a stack of books, or regular old gift box! You'll also see her new gift sacs above - SO SIMPLE and yet so super sweet!

And for those of you who are always asking us for rubber stamps... we finally found some cute ones that have just the right touch of whimsy to give as a gift for anyone of any age!

Cud's greeting cards are fantastic too - some are boxed sets and others are individual greeting cards (wouldn't the little scribble thank you's be just perfect for the kiddo's end-of-the-year teacher notes?!)

I'll be spending the day spoofing up these goodies to get them ready for you! So swing on by soon to check it all out :) I'm sure that you won't be disappointed!

Much love and many hugs,
