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 grabĀ this one from lily & val!

father’s day cards

May 30, 2012

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. ;)

i’m pretty sure my dad is literally the hardest guy on earth to buy for. he pretty much just buys whatever he wants (which is not much) anyways, which leaves us stumped every year. anyways, i hope your dad is easier to buy for, and maybe this little gift guide will help! (love you, daddy!)
