lily & val spring showcase

chalkboard artist valerie mckeehan is an amazing hand letterer who works hard to showcase the nostalgic and comforting rustic charm that chalkboards bring to a space. all of the prints, note cards and paper goods at lily and val are hand lettered on a chalkboard surface, then photographed to produce the products. this process allows the designs to keep their rustic charm since they’re not digitally produced. the result is a truly beautiful, realistic chalkboard appearance (minus the dust!).

psst.. don’t forget father’s day is just around the corner! if you’re still looking for a special card, there’s still plenty of time to grab this one from lily & val!

handmade easter cards

easter is just around the corner! it’s one of my favorite times of year as i joyfully welcome the beginning of spring, warmer weather and sprouting buds. we’re especially excited for it this year, as we’re hosting a little gender reveal easter egg hunt at our house (we found out what we’re having yesterday!!!). i’ll be sure to post the results next week. :) i also love giving sweet (or humorous) easter cards to our families, and above are a few favorites i’ve spotted thus far.

i thought etsy’s feeling stately newsletter was adorable this morning (did you get it?), which inspired me to do a little roundup of my own states. over the last two years we’ve lived in three states, but there will never be a place like my home sweet home of north carolina.

father’s day is just around the corner (sunday, june 17th!), so it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll gift your dad (to help, see yesterday’s father’s day gift guide!). i always like to make my dad laugh (could there be a more comforting sound?), so here are a few of my favorite handmade cards. beware, some are hilariously inappropriate! but don’t worry, i’ve included some serious ones, as well. ;)
