week 8: drop cap bonanza

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE these Jessica Heisch drop cap postcards form Chronicle books. (Get some.) I've been making my way through them in order and this week set off an E-K stretch.

incoming mail! Leap year goodness

This amazing leap year mail arrived on Saturday, just in time to celebrate today with the fanfare a once every four years event deserves.

week 5: the theme is maps

I sent off a number of map-themed items this week, everything from vintage map cards to letterpress cards and custom envelopes I made by hand of maps form an old atlas.
