Boutique Minimaliste -3Whenever I do the custom stamp giveaways I receive a full inbox the following week asking me when I will be doing the next one. Since I have no rhyme or reason how I do these things, my only answer is ‘soon’. Well, to all of you that have emailed or have hoped that I would do it again, I hope today is soon enough!  A lot of my clients have been purchasing their logo in two sizes one for their packaging and a smaller version for things like back of cards and tags. My client above (the very lovely Boutique Minimaliste) created the artwork for her stamps with her shop name on one and her shop motif on another.  For this bestowal I wanted to offer one lucky winner the same type of set, one 1″ x 1″ handle stamp (if you want to sub for a monogram instead, indeed do!) and one logo stamp up to 2″ x 2″.

I am not going to ask you to answer a question this Monday morn, but I am going to ask you to do a little work for it (if you are so inclined) leave a comment with something new you learned lately (it could be a new word, a new recipe, a new to you what have you…), and to Pin, FB and/or Tweet about (or whatever new fangled social media you are into these days, have you heard of Keep?) I will choose the winner next Monday. And to celebrate that we are moving cross country (again!)  in three weeks and since next Tuesday will be the last day for custom stamp orders for at least a month, I am offering 50% off all week on custom stamps & monogram stamps, so stock up!

Speaking of moving we did make a decision and I am quite excited about it, I will do the big reveal tomorrow! I can’t wait to share our choice with you.  Good luck friends!

  1. Something new I have learned recently is calligraphy. I just finished the I Still Love Calligraphy class and happily found you somehow through scouring the Internet for other calligrapher’s. :)

  2. Something new I have learned recently is how important it is to be happy where you are living. Learning this has made me decide to move back to my home state CA from NYC in a few days.

  3. I’ve recently learned (accepted?) that change is good. While the familiar is safe and comforting, change can be rewarding beyond what we could ever imagine. :)
    I’ve also learned recently that I can regrow a pineapple from a pineapple top. As a pineapple fanatic, I now have 5 pineapple plants growing away near my kitchen sink…I’m so excited! How did we live before Pinterest?!

  4. I’m starting to learn the basics of graphic design! I’ve loved it for a really long time, but I’ve never took the time to really learn about it. I’m hoping that it’s something I’ll stick to and love!

  5. This Saturday I will be learning how to dance Old English Country style…which includes Regency/Jane Austen style dancing. This is the second time I’ve gone to the class and so far it is amazing and easy to pick up the dancing patterns. It is such a lovely, simple, romantic form of dancing that I am so glad is not lost in this generation.

  6. This week my mother had a panic attack. I’m getting married in less than a month and the venue seems to have pulled some sort of bait and switch. She had a few bouts with Afib so we rushed her in to see the docter. Thankfully, she’s fine, but still very stressed. This week I learned (remembered!) that the wedding isn’t about having the most sublime day, with the most gorgeous decor or the most exquisite food. It’s about gathering together as family. We will be surrounded by our dearest and I will be marrying my true love. The day will be perfect no matter what.

  7. Oh what perfect timing! I was just googling around my favorite creative sites in search of custom stamp tips/suppliers! I need one for my stationery business and yours are always so lovely. This week I’ve learned that it’s okay to not know all the answers just yet as long as I’m open to discovering them bit by bit. It’s been a very rough and sucky few months, but happily I’m starting to lift my head back up and think positive thoughts. Good luck with the move!
