2012 Letterpress Calendar! Get 'em while they last!


There have been some sneak peeks of our calendar leaking out ever since the National Stationery Show, but we’ve finally loaunched it in our Etsy shop!

This year was different because we actually designed the calendar in January and printed it in March.  Talk about working ahead!


We decided to go with a fun and functional desk calendar this year, and besides some chipper illustrations, one of the coolest and most unique things about this calendar is that it comes with a one-of-a-kind hedgewood stump cut from the fields of the farm where we have our studio. After 2012 has passed you by, you’ll be able to use the stump for photos or cards or recipe cards for years to come!




We really concentrated on the lettering for the months. It’s hard to come up with 12 different styles! And it’s even harder for me not to sing “I’ll be Gone till November honey, gone till November….” the entire time I’m drawing that word.

Here’s a view of all of the designs. See if you can tell who drew what. Here’s a secret: my husband, Jason actually drew one of the months.


Be warned: we only printed 600 of these, and we are NOT reprinting. We’ve already sold more than 200, so get ’em while you can!

Here are the details:

  • 12 months on 6 cards, double sided
  • Printed on luxurious bright white Lettra 110lb cardstock
  • cards measure 3.5 x 5 inches and the wood stump greatly varies, but is about 1 inch thick
  • Limited edition of 600
  • Ships in a cardboard box, with recycled packaging materials


1canoe2 now starring on the World-Wide-Interwebs!

We’ve had a couple of really big mentions/blogs listed about us lately. Ever heard of Oprah?? I just want to call out “1canoetoooooOOOO00000—oooo!!”


And we did a snazzy little oven mitt tutorial on ModCloth, which is a wonderful company to work with. We’re selling our fabric fat quarters and some prints through them, and this little tutorial teaches you how to make the most of your square of fabric.


And the postess with the mostess, Design Mom blog! We have gotten a lot of traffic from this cool, design-y mom of six. She moved her family to France this year, and her style and flair keep her high up on my Google Reader list! She was kind enough to post about our State prints here:
