Winner Announcement

Its hard to believe a whole season has flown by so fast.  Thanks to everyone for a summer of great contests, you have made it so fun for us.  :)  So without any more delay, this week’s winner was Letty, who penned:

“Cal­i­for­nia girl meets east coast mosquitos.”

Thanks again, and best of luck to everyone as we kick off the autumn season!


Well, I can’t believe September is already upon us.  I want to thank everyone so much for tuning in and entering our Monday contests this summer.  Nole and I have really enjoyed reading all of your entries.  You guys are awesome.  Today is the LAST contest of 2011, and the theme is:

Last Days of Summer

If you’re new to the contest, here’s some info on the rules and how to enter.  The win­ner with the best six word story will receive 50 per­son­al­ized let­ter­press note­cards.  Because there are lots of people without power today on the east coast, the give­away will be run­ning all week.  You’ll have until 11:59 p.m. EST on Fri­day to LEAVE YOUR ENTRY AT Oh So Beautiful Paper, then I’ll announce the win­ner here on Saturday.  And just in case you need some inspi­ra­tion, you can check out these six word auto­bi­ogra­phies.  Good luck!  :)

While everyone is hunkering down for the hurricane on the east coast, I thought I’d share some bright photos to carry myself through the stormy weekend.

Yesterday I printed the final cover in my series with the wonderful Angela Liguori of Studio Carta, this was my favorite of the three.  :)  I’ll post some more shots of this project next week, but in the meantime I hope everyone stays safe and dry this weekend.  xo

corn 7

I took some photos of my neighbor’s sweet corn crop this week …in these last days of summer.  I’m heading to Cape Cod for one last long weekend, and will be back on Tuesday.  I hope you have a great weekend, time to savor every last minute of the season before the cooler weather starts creeping in.  :)

etsy 2

Yesterday I spent the afternoon in New York, walking around Soho with one of my dear friends on her birthday.  I also had a chance to drop by the awesome Etsy offices in Brooklyn to hand deliver some cards.   So nice to catch up with everyone.

And while I was goofing off in the city, Gayle spent the afternoon at her old doggie daycare, Cheeky Dog, so she could catch up with her old friends too – I love that place.  (By the way, if you click this link you might notice that her picture is on site.  Hilarious.)

“Nine months later, beau­ti­ful baby girl.”

Thanks again everyone – see you back here again Monday, 29th!


Here we are again, back for another summer Monday Contest after a week off.  This week I thought it would be fun to go back to high school…where there’s never a shortage of drama.  The theme for today’s six-word contest is:

I snuck away to Sea Girt, NJ for two days this week – the second of my three mini-break vacations of the summer.  Now I’m printing all weekend – but that’s okay because I feel very rested and raring to go.  I had some mega creative inspiration while I was there…

Hope you have a great weekend, please check-in on Monday for the second to last contest of the summer!
