The Letter Writing Essentials kit has arrived just in time for National Letter Writing Month!
Thoughtful letter writing is very dear to me, so I was thrilled when Kate and Isabel asked if I would like to contribute my stationery label sets to their endeavor. It's an honor to be a collaborator in this gorgeous kit, available in the Of Note Stationers shop.
The kit includes:
• 12 letterpress printed letter writing sheets–8.25" by 5.75"
• 6 Soft Cotton Envelopes
• 8 Eva Moon Press Stationery Labels
• 1 Letter Ledger
• 1 Ephemera Pack* (included in the first ten sets only)

Over the years, these are the kinds of tools and stationery I find myself using daily at my desk or for letter writing on the go (preferably outside!). Many of the objects I use are vintage and one-of-a-kind but I also value collecting useful tools that are design and created by craftspeople across the world, so this guide reflects those values. I am pleased to share my ideas of gifts for letter writers and I hope you enjoy supporting these businesses that I admire.
P.S. The guide is divided into two sections. The first section is paper goods and the second is devoted to desk tools.

Last month, I had the pleasure of participating in the Write_On Campaign by sharing my process of using vintage ephemera in letter writing on their lovely blog. I teamed up with my pal, photographer Tanya Pavolova. We spent a fun, sunny afternoon together on this photo shoot and I am so pleased to share it with the world.

Over the past few months, I've had the chance to work with Rooted Gypsy Farms in developing their branding and website. I am really pleased with how everything came together. The farm grows unique vegetables and herbs year-round thanks to their greenhouse and aquaponics system. I am really fond of their mission to provide nourishing produce for their community in Colorado.
