etsy shop updates 11.19.2012

We actually have a few exciting things coming to our etsy shop in the next couple of weeks, but today we’d like to share two of those updates! First of all, we’ve loved selling our Ampersand Signature Series prints, so we thought, why not introduce an extra special new color option every once in a while? SOOOO….drumroll please, welcome TURQUOISE & GOLD to the ampersand family! We couldn’t be more thrilled with this addition to the shop–the colors are even more brilliant in person, but then, you know, you’d have to buy one to see for yourself! (in case you’re new to our shop, read all about the birth of our Amperand Series here)

Our second piece of exciting news has to do with a very special collaboration you all might remember. It was with the one and only Jess LC. Jess is all about making sure there is meaning and intention behind everything you do – so, of course, art prints to hang in your home that you look at every day are no exception. We partnered with Jess to design these unique, simple and stunning posters. Originally, Jess sold them in her own shop, but she has since re-shifted her priorities and the shop no longer exists (read all about her decision here), but lucky for us (and all of you), three of the  Wells Prints with Intention will stay alive on our very own etsy shop!!! Be Present, Be Brave, and Just Keep Going! Now, who wouldn’t want those as daily reminders?

When the Wells Prints first launched, Jess organized a lookbook with the prints in some beautiful homes including:  Erika Brechtel, Mackenzie Horan, Liz Schneider, Bryn Dunn, Danielle Moss and Alaina Kaczmarski of The Everygirl! AND the coolest part is we also get to hear why they chose the one they did, and oh look….we’re in it, too! (pssst…scroll down to see the prints in our very own homes)
So, there you have it!! Two of our three upates are LIVE in the shop now!! And, just in case we have totally confused you, to summarize, we have four new items in our etsy shop, and here are the links:

work in progress… 11.12.2012

Among lots of other fun projects, we’re also hard at work designing the next series of art prints for our etsy shop! This weekend we had a little time to play with some good old fashioned paint – how gorgeous is Carrie’s hand-lettering?! We can’t wait to finalize the design and share these with you….but for now….a few shots of our work in progress.

art & design: mid-century album & book covers 02.28.2012


We’re always suckers for mid-century homes and furniture, but the graphic design of that era is also at the top of our list so we fell head over heels when we stumbled upon New Documents, an etsy shop that specializes in mid-20th century modern album and book covers! Thinking one of these might be a nice addition to a gallery wall, what do you think?
