teeeeeaser

As I’ve mentioned here before, while navigating the process of self-publishing my first book, I decided to create my very own printing press, matchbox press.

As soon as I created the graphic for the matchbox press logo, I pictured it on a t-shirt. It’s simple, but a bit edgy, and the perfect way to support this independent publisher, while I continue to print and sell my book. Thanks to my love for all things cozy, the shirt we came up with is super soft, light, and printed right here in Rhode Island. C can’t wait to dress his up with a suit and chucks for gigs ;)

ps- I am so excited to announce (soon) that my book has been officially stocked in its first brick and mortar shop- and it’s one of my absolutely FAVORITES! STAY TUNED to hear where…

Hey. Hi. Hello. It’s been a while!

Please excuse the absence around here, as you can see things have been…busy. I am usually a Thanksgiving fanatic, but something strange is happening this season. Don’t get me wrong- I had a fabulous time with the stuffing and pie, but this year jingle bells are just ringing a bit louder for me.

It’s not even December yet (but can you believe it will be this weekend?!) and I’m diving head first into the holly jolly. I’ve already watched most of my prerequisite Christmas movies (Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street, Charlie Brown’s Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life, I’m looking at you), the crafting has begun, and you guys, I even decorated my tiny tree. I know.

This quick week off from work was refreshing and productive, filled with family time, tea dates, homework cramming, donkey feeding, indoor farmer’s marketing, and small business shopping. Because #shopsmallsaturday should last all season long, here’s a little round up of my favorite spots around pvd:

NAVA for the best gifts for your best gals. + plants + candles + vintage wears

Home Imagined for refurbished midcentury furniture and an epic craft corner.

The Shop for cozy. Because you can shop small for foods and drinks, too.

Queen of Hearts / Modern Love for downtown fashuuun and fun accessories.

Frog and Toad for the most unique, perfect, can’t believe this is a real thing gifts.
