man oh man. there's so much going on around here and it's driving me crazy that i haven't had a chance to share it with you all. like did you know i now have wrapping paper? it'll be for sale in my shop sometime in mid-may. and i have my 2012 desk calendar finalized, with a super-cool made-for-me exclusive calendar stand? it's very cool. and OH FREAKING YEAH. DID I MENTION THAT UP UP CREATIVE WILL SOON BE OFFERING LETTERPRESS PRINTING ON ALL WEDDING SUITES? i've partnered with amy rau of greengirlpress.com to make that happen, and i'm so flipping excited about it.
more on all of this in the coming weeks. i just had to pop by quickly to share. HOORAY!
