HELLO TWIG & FIG!

(Photo above poached from Design*Sponge, thank you! If I had my own photo, I’d use it!) Was perusing through Design*Sponge’s great coverage of some of the artists at the National Stationery Show in New York when I spotted this card…

THE READING ROOM: REJECTED

It feels like I have gone through a massive glut of books this year. Just can’t get enough of ‘em. Even on the short flight back from Denver (after leaving Las Vegas… lights so bright, palm sweat on a Saturday…
