Nineteen Seventy Three Gift Wrap

I love beautiful and well thought out packaging.  So when I came across these new gift wrap additions to the NinteenSeventyThree shop it was love at first sight.

Not only does The Good Life (the creators of the gift wrap featured here) make wrapping paper in the sweetest designs… but each one is printed on 100% recycled paper.  Now that’s something to feel good about! Check out more of The Good Life gift paper and other styles at NineteenSeventyThree.

Blog Crush: A Print A Day

I have to tell you about my latest blog crush: A Print A Day.  Yasmine, a Bay Area designer & illustrator started her blog as a creative outlet and means to showcase her work.  Aren’t we lucky!  I am so completely smitten!

Her pieces featuring lace, doilies, and tapestries are my absolute favorite.  I’m crossing my fingers that Yasmine will be selling her work soon.  Wouldn’t you love to see her designs screenprinted on t-shirts, tank tops, totes, tea towels and more?!!!

Stop by A Print A Day for more inspiration… and while you’re there be sure to download her free label and notepad designs (how chic).  Thanks Yasmine for your generosity!
