Etsy/West Elm Pop-Up Shop Recap
IMG_5830.jpg

Last weekend was the Etsy and West Elm pop-up shop! We (and 12 other Seattle area Etsy sellers) packed up our products and set up shop at the Seattle West Elm store for the day.

Local decorating blog The Inspired Room curated the event, and were honored to be chosen. Thanks to everyone involved! It was a great day.

I'd been sick in bed with a cold all week before the event, but I rallied my energy just enough to park myself in a comfy West Elm dining chair with an unending supply of London Fog from Wheelhouse Coffee. So if you met me at the event, that's why I was half dead. (I hate being sick!!)

It was really fun to see our cards and prints in the beautiful store. We set up at a dining table, under this amazing chandelier. I "window" shopped from my chair all day, and Brad added about a dozen new things to his Christmas list. West Elm is definitely one of our favorites.

We're not doing a ton of events this year (focusing our energy on preparing for NSS), but we have one more pre-Christmas event coming up! We'll have the studio open on December 5th & 7th for our annual 57 Biscayne holiday open house. Put it on your calendar and come see us!

Some history: I designed the first (and very limited) edition of "You & Me" for a local art show with a love letters theme soon after Brad and I got married. During the design process, I tried for days to think of the right words to say. It was quite a challenge. How does one put into words the kind of love that I've found with my Brad? That long-awaited, unexpected, best friend-become-spouse, always and forever love? After lots of failed flowery attempts - lots of silly, ridiculous tries at cleverness... this simple list is what I came up with. And two years later, those words are even more tried and true today than they were then.

Today, I'm humbled and happy to share that in these last 2 years, hundreds of people have used my words to share love with their someone. This is the epitome of success for me - that my heartfelt words have been shared and cherished - used to bring people closer together. I started this company and continue to work hard to grow it because I love what I do. I believe in the power of the written & printed word in people's lives. Today, and want to give my thanks to everyone who has purchased one of these prints. Thanks for sharing your life with us - we've loved sharing our life with you.

One last thing: I want to thank my sweet Brad for his love, support, and encouragement these last few years. He makes all of this possible, and inspires me to keep going. Babe: You (still!) are patient with me, encourage me, amaze me, mean the world to me, complete me, always impress me, take care of me, surprise me, are home to me, and I adore you.
