thursday tidbits

how is it already thursday??  i am not ok with these weeks flying by.  at any rate, it’s time for thursday tidbits!  get excited.

y’all….today is the day.  trina turk for banana republic is revealed!  what do you think??  i love it, although some of the prints seem like i saw them already…maybe 5 years ago??

we have been busy bees during wedding season 2012, and still have some to go with fall and winter brides!  what fun.  one of my favorites featured gold edges on super thick crane lettra stock…i mean, how gorge.

surely i am not the only mom who has hundreds – yes, hundreds – of these type pictures on their iphone?

somehow you can turn on the camera when the phone is locked.  i cannot figure out how to do this, but really need to ask my three-year-old how it works.

last night i dined at the optimist, the westside’s coolest new place.  it was delightful and the meal was only outdone by the company!  i was with my blog friends (who are also real life friends), dixie delights and the buncolator gals (aka amanda and catherine/lindsay, respectively).  we always have such a blast when we get together, and i tell you there is not one pause in the conversation between the four of us!  i should have gotten a picture of all of us.  next time, girls!

alright, time to get some work done. i forgot how much i love babies that take morning naps…and summer camps for three year olds :)


from our house to yours…

…merry christmas and to all a good night!

did you know…

…that calliespondence designs business papers, in addition to social papers?

check out these foldover notecards and business cards we did for our favorite dentist in dallas – dr. beth meyers tomlin.  the business cards even have a little map and a place for your next appointment on the back – how cute!

and of course calliespondence needed business cards.  here they are, letterpressed in teal ink and edge painted in yellow.  by the way, every time i hear ‘teal’ now i think of that girl from the millionaire matchmaker who got set up with that dude zagros. did y’all see that episode?  or am i just a bravo junkie? 

here are some more business cards, recently completed for the AWESOME folks at glacier county honey company, located in babb, montana.  we printed dark brown thermography ink on ultra thick kraft paper…yummy.  but not as yummy as their honey (it’s really good).

and of course, who could forget the lovely bon lemon notecards.  jewelry makes a great gift for the holidays, you know…

there are more in the works, so stay tuned for profiles on other amazing small businesses… 

and really, what could be better for your business than putting a fabulous foot forward in the way of good paper wares!
