Notes From Camp

It’s that time of year. Kids all over the country, right now, are having the time of their lives at summer camp!

We have fond memories of camp – marshmallows over the campfire, cannonballs off the dock into the lake, rowdy meals in the dining hall, and one of the highlights of EVERY day…mail call! There’s surely no better way to keep in touch with your summer camp kids, or to just remember your own summer camp days than with our new Notes from Camp Stationery Set!

We hand painted the illustrations for each card and coordinating envelope…

and we painstakingly pieced it all together to come in a neat little box that is perfect for keeping those oh-so-important notes safe and organized.

This is a boxed set of 10 cards and coordinating envelopes. The flat cards measure 5×7 inches, and are printed front and back on heavy cardstock.

Get yours right here, and have fun at camp!



New Postcards!

We have several new things in the shop that I need to tell you all about! Let’s kick it off with some new postcards!

There is nothing better than getting outside and enjoying a beautiful place. We are big fans of tromping in the woods, skipping rocks, hiking up mountains, and watching waves crash against the shore. If only we could do that ALL the time! Our Scenic Postcard Set is a reminder of beautiful places and wisdom from the past.

Each illustration is hand-painted and paired with a quote from someone who really knew what they were talking about.

The set includes four different designs, and it comes as a mixed set of eight. You can find it right here.


It’s not hard to find beautiful sights right outside the backdoor…but I also have an ever-increasing list of places I would like to visit and things I would like to see. The northern lights in Alaska. The Grand Canyon, from a raft on the Colorado River. The fjords and lava fields in Iceland. And, someday, hike all the way to Machu Picchu.

Have you ever done any of these things? Where are some dream places that you would like to visit?

Have a great weekend, get outside and do something fun!

Introducing Our New Hand-Painted Greeting Card Collection!

We’re off to New York City this weekend where we’ll be setting up shop at the New York International Gift Fair. We are happy to let you know that we will be debuting a whole new collection of greeting cards at NYIGF! You may remember back in November I told you that I had been working hard on a big project – well here it is! We have 48 NEW cards, for all occasions, all illustrated by hand. Here are just a few of them…

We hope you can find one to suit all of your occasions. You can see the entire collection in our shop!

New Illustrated Recipe Cards

You probably have some favorite recipes, those that you go to time and time again, don’t you? Or, maybe you have collected recipes from family members, or you just don’t want to forget how to make Grandma’s cherry pie.

We’ve hand-painted a new line of colorful illustrated recipe cards! Six new styles to choose from, each card is 4×6, with space on both the front and back for listing ingredients and directions. Hand lettered divider tabs are also available for keeping all of your favorite recipes nice and organized! You can find all of them right here in the shop, so look around and pick out your favorites!

Take Note!

Last Friday we FINALLY received a huge shipment of new 1canoe2 goodies! There were several misadventures with this shipment, but all 2400 kilos of notepads were rolled/pushed/pulled up our driveway last week. ( I shudder to think what my neighbors thought about an 18-wheeler being parked in the street)20121023-101354.jpg

Welcome to the Let’s Eat, This Week, Acorn, Barn, and Hello! notepads!  Carrie painted all of these designs which we had made into lovely little notebooks bound with a very posh linen tape at the top.

Plan your weekly menu and grocery list:


And finally: our exclusive Anthropologie notepads! We worked together with some fabulous gals at Anthro and we’re in the process of delivering pallets of them to be sold online (soon) and at their stores.

We have so  many new projects in the works right now! New recipe cards are coming soon. Get excited!
