Last weekend Sarah, Heather, and I took a little girls trip to stay at the pretty pink Vinoy hotel in downtown St. Pete (just a quick 30-40 minute drive for us). The hotel has undergone a ton of renovations and just looks so beautiful. The new rooms are decked with fun decor and were very spacious for three people. We were invited to a tasting on Friday which turned into a delicious 4 course meal (accommodating my vegetarian needs with tofu, falafel, etc), so good. The hotel is positioned just a short walk from a ton of good restaurants, bars, and shops. One of my favorites is the Birchwood which is a rooftop bar overlooking the city. They also have an amazing menu downstairs at Birch and Vine, where we had breakfast Saturday. We ended our stay by strolling down Central Ave, checking out all the fun places to eat and little antique shops and a quick trip to Trader Joe’s since we are deprived and don’t have one here! ha. If you get the chance to stay in the area, do visit the Vinoy. I know we will be returning (and hopefully making time for their lovely spa on the next trip!)
Thanks Sarah and Vinoy!
I’m pretty excited about our new postcard sets! There are three new sets; dog portraits, sea creatures, and fashion girls. Each is a set of 8.

A few weeks ago we attended the National Stationery Show at the Javitz Center in NYC. These are some photos of our booth space and the new products we launched at the show!
A gallery wall on one side with new cactus prints was an eye catcher…
The card wall! So many new ones
Some beautiful peonies from Whole Foods
New postcards highlighted in their own section
We used copper rods again for our gift wrap display, I just love how this looks and plan to carry it over to my studio
Notepads and gift tags on shelfs we made from crown molding
“Stationery is the best” buttons for everyone who stopped by the booth
Here I am with my millionth cup of coffee on the last day (and the peonies changed colors!)
A few scary iPhone photos of the before and during of our set up. It’s so crazy how you get there and everything is in shambles for hours. You feel like you’re not going to have enough time then suddenly, all in a days work, you have a beautiful booth!
Minted has a fun and beautifully decorated cocktail party one night after the show. This years theme was ‘Minted meets Marfa” with all the cutest desert vibes!
Finally, we did a little bit of exploring, visiting favorite spots, and hanging out with some friends.
This matcha and sesame seed yogurt with mochi from Taiyaki NYC was amazing
Cactus are everywhere but they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon! I created the prickly pear awhile back but it was a popular seller on Etsy so overtime I have added to it. Now I have a complete set of 4 prints and decided to make them into a greeting card set as well! The prints are 11×14 and the cards are standard A-2 with two of each design in the set.

Recent announcements inspired by my Tuscan suite for an elopement in Ravello, Italy. I love the idea of doing an announcement with a letter to friends and family. This couple added a separate card to invite their friends to post a toast on instagram using their hashtag. Such a fun way to include everyone and have them there in spirit. We also made little tags for ‘An Italian Wedding Tradition’ and Olive Oil jars that they were sending as gifts.
