Just because
Hawkeye and his stuffed portrait

It's been a long couple weeks, so this is just for smiles and to keep me sane. Dog portrait of Hawkeye by the amazing Sian Keegan.

Sweet Paul
Sweet Paul is an amazing new online magazine about food, drink, design and life, all things that I love. While flipping through the Fall 2010 issue, I stumbled upon our hand-painted apple boxes being used in a rather clever way. This is one of the many reasons I love prop stylists--they are smart and ingenious, two traits I really admire. Big thanks to Paul Lowe for this wonderful set up and Frances Janisch for the photography. We were pleased as punch to see this in a story about Scandinavian-style decorating; as a designer it's always rewarding to see that folks really understand the intent and meaning behind your work. Also check out Sweet Paul's blog here for behind-the-scenes peeks and more sweet goodness.

Whole Living magazine
We're over-the-moon about being featured in the November issue of Whole Living magazine. This is our first national press for the growth charts, so it's been wonderful to meet so many new customers and friends. Our studio has been insane these last 3 weeks thanks to this, and we're happy to be so very busy. It's funny to think back to when the idea for the charts first started--I was washing dishes, pondering a conversation I just had with my sister about their upcoming move to Austin. Then, Bam! It just came to me. I should wash dishes more often.
