New! Brooklyn Print

Brooklyn Letterpress Print

I am so happy to announce that this new wood type letterpress print “BROOKLYN” is now available from our online shop! I haven’t been able to put up any new stuff lately so this is very exciting for me. I am working on more stuff slowly and it’ll all be up as they are ready so please stay tuned.


Setting the wood type on my Pearl…


I like it in the black ornate frame like this :)

Black Ink

One more post from my Boston trip this morning… about the shop I love called Black Ink in Harvard Square! I guess they have a shop in Beacon Hill, too, but every time I go to this store, I get so excited to see all the cool designs, little nickknacks that I don’t really need, but they are just so cute, and such cool stuff everywhere in the store!

Store sign – already cool and bold:


The wall is filled with cool/cute stuff:


and here are my purchases…

Popcorn bags – I am hanging like this in our kitchen, but they are great for a small and fun gift bag/wrapping, too! Love the classic/retro designs.


Letter H and R:


Bottle Opener – the packaging is cool, too!




I can’t wait to set this up in our kitchen! (Mainly for Randy to use)

They also have an Online store, they don’t carry nearly half the stuff you see at the store, but it is still fun to look around and shop around. Here are my picks…

Daruma Mug:


*they carry a lot of Japanese fun stuff, too, I love it!

P Hook Bookmarks:


I saw this at the store, I thought it was a great product – should have grabbed them…

Ringo Magazine Rack:


Happy Friday, everyone!!
