A beautiful collaboration

I saw this the other day and bought it immediately. It's a limited-edition letterpress collaboration by Shanna Murray and Pistachio Press. I love the varied textures and the delightful pops of red against the soft blue and gray. I think it's safe to say I will never write in these, but will most likely frame and hang them up.

And here is my favorite recent shot of Charlie. I've been trying to take lots of pictures because I know this puppy phase will be over before I know it. (Though I must admit I cannot wait until she's properly potty-trained.) When I take her out to the backyard to see if she'll relieve herself, she'll zoom around and it's actually getting hard to catch her! That girl. Sigh.

lovely cards- I wouldn't write in them either :)

Charlie is adorable. Our pup used to get the zoomies twice a day like clockwork. She's a bit older now and it only happens once a week or so. I kinda miss it :)

You have hands-down the cutest dog in blogland! And the letterpress notebooks are GORGEOUS. Definitely frame-worthy. I wouldn't want to ruin a single page with my mediocre handwriting!

Your new purchase press prints are beautiful. I buy post cards and frame them too!
Good luck with training, it will just come together, we have been a full 2 months with no accidents! we were told to say a word when it looks like she is starting and say it while she's doing it, then big praise and treats and they get the hang of that pretty quick!

I love your work. Very inspiring. And I love your dog. I am the proud parent of a little boy boston and he's really, truly amazing. Best of luck with potty-training.

Hi Wendy
Thanks for popping onto my blog to say Hi, glad to make friends with another blogger.
These cards are lovely and I would feel the same I would want to keep them and frame them up.
I love the look of your blog and looking at your printing techniques, and of course your puppy is very cute too; I bet he is a lot of fun and hard work.

Thanks so much for posting our cards on your great blog! The collaboration was so much fun and we're so happy with how the cards turned out.

Charlie is so cute! We've gotten all of our dogs from rescue groups and have (sadly) missed the puppy phase. Enjoy all of that adorable energy :)
