A few weeks ago, I letterpressed my friend Stephanie’s save the dates for her destination wedding. I took a letterpress class in the fall, so this was my first real project. Here are some photos from the actual production part, Tim came with me to get a few shots (and to help me calm down during my troubleshooting with the press)! I rented studio time at The Arm (ps they also run classes & workshops), I highly recommend it!
Stay tuned for the actual save the dates! Steph will be sending me the finished product soon (we collaborated), so I’ll be sharing that with you later xx

I received my very own Pretty Please polish from NYC blogshop, where I also happened to meet Sara, the owner of Pretty Please. The idea is simple and genius. Pick a polish color, think of a clever name, & share it with others! How cute is the Favorable Mention polish?! These polishes would be perfect for any occasion – bridal showers, birthday parties, work events, etc. The Pretty Please website will be launching next month but if you are looking to order before then feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or follow them on Facebook.
This year we threw a Chinese / White Elephant gift exchange
with friends. The spending limit was $15 and it turned out to be a lot of fun! Tim luckily picked the very last number and I picked the 2nd to last number – I swear it was not rigged!. He ended up stealing some Stumptown coffee & a coffee mug and I stole 15 lottery tickets, which won me $27!
Here’s some more examples of the gifts in case you need to throw a gift together last minute (like we all did):
-a bottle of wine
-olive oil & balsamic vinegar
-a Playboy (lol this was the most hated gift)
There are so many DIY projects on the internet which is perfect for the holidays. Here’s a few of my favorites!
