I just got back from a two-day Tattly country-side retreat where Natalie wore one of these Poler Napsacks pretty much 24/7. Here’s proof. It’s an ingenious invention if you ask me; a wearable sleeping bag. It has zippers at the shoulders, so you can stick your arms out, and a cinch at the bottom so that you can open it up and stick your legs out. Hike it up to your waist, cinch it, and wear it like a puffy coat around the campfire, and then crawl right back into your tent without ever having to leave the warmth of your bag.
Brilliant, right? Napsacks for everyone!
One of my favorite decorative items in our co-working space is the Sailing Ship Kite by Emily Fischer of Haptic Lab. It makes for an amazing, crafty gift.
Love these nerdy love letterpress cards. Especially the one saying “Baby, let’s stay in bed and listen to some NPR”.
Who knew a product video for a ring could be this charming and funny? Congrats to Digby & Iona for hiring talented Mac Premo and show us what’s possible in the world of dry product videos. Here’s the link to the Eyes & Stars Signet ring, in case you want to buy it.

Mymo is bringing prsonal monograms back, but with a twist: Mymo cleverly combines any two letters or numbers into a novel 3 dimensional form. From one angle, you see one letter; from another angle, you see the other. Think of it as 3D printed typographic jewelry, based on a custom typeface that Patrick Durgin-Bruce designed specifically for the limitations of 3D printing.
Get your initials (or any other meaningful combination of two letters) as a necklace pendant, keychain or ornament.
If you want them by christmas you got to order them by tomorrow, December 2nd! Hurry! Mymo.is!
55 HI’S launched some beautiful typographic notepads. Perfect stocking stuffer, no?

The Spencer Leather Sleeve for the iPad Mini is a beauty. Winter Session hand-finishes each product in Denver and sources sources the vegetable-tanned leather from the Horween Tannery in Chicago. It’s also available for the big iPad.

How beautiful is this Geometric Wooden Holiday Ornamet by FlaneursPocket?
In love with this joyful Confetti Tree Skirt.
Yes, the Holidays are on my mind.
I just got my hands on the new Yellow Owl’s Little Prints book. Christine Schmidt, author of the bestselling Print Workshop and the creative force behind the acclaimed Yellow Owl Workshop line of artisan stationery and home accessories, shares her inspired ideas for making easy, yet entirely unique items for kids. It’s full of beautifully illustrated tutorials on using stamps, stenciling, and other hand-printing techniques. Ella (7) will be so excited when she sees this tonight! I see some extra crafty weekends in my future.
Today is the Day where I can finally announce our newest Tattly project: Tattly Cards: One Real Card, One Fake Tattoo. Our new stationery line is letterpress printed and includes a single matching Tattly Temporary Tattoo! A happy greeting and fun gift wrapped into one!
And just like Tattlys, our cards are made and printed in the USA, by no other than Mama’s Sauce. What do you think?
I am excited. YAY!
Oliver Jeffers recently launched an updated version of his wonderful World Map. Oliver drew the original map with pencil on paper and reproduced it on beautiful double-weight paper with a self healing natural cork backing for you to easily push pins into. Each print is signed by Oliver, embossed with an exclusive seal and mailed in a tube to ensure it arrives in the very best condition. Cool, right?
