flavor paper

I'm loving these rich jewel-toned wallpaper panels from Flavor Paper. And, who doesn't love a pug dressed as Yoda in front of a chic print? Wallpaper pieces can be purchased at Rare Chic...

temperley + target = love!

Temperley (one of my favorites!) is the latest to sign on to create a collection for Target! Here's hoping the Target collection will have the same incredible detail and feminity that I love about her work. Read more here...also check out the Libertine for Target collection over at Love Made Visible...

nantaka joy + the stationery show

I've got some fun news to share (and an explanation for being extra busy lately)...I'll be launching my new line, Nantaka Joy, at the National Stationery Show in New York from May 20-23! I'm thrilled to be represented by Relish and sharing a booth with some amazing women including: Kelly from K.Autumn, Lisa from Good on Paper, Jill of Jill Bliss, Meg of Mateo Ilasco, and Jacinta of Allymoon.

If you'll be at the show, please stop by and say hello to booth #3472. And, of course, come check out our new goodies! Click here for more info. or to be added to the mailing list. I'll post more info. about my own collection when it gets closer to the show, so stay tuned...

{UPDATE: Thanks for all the sweet and encouraging comments! I will post pics of the collection after the show so that those of you who aren't there can see some of my goods. I do plan to sell some pieces on my own site but will be concentrating on wholesale first. Either way, I'll have stuff up to view on my site after the show. Thanks again for all the encouragement - it really does mean so much!}
