get em while they're hot

Well, would you look at that. New cards, at long last! You can find them on the Etsy store, or coming soon to a brick and mortar shop near you. We debuted these babies at the National Stationery Show earlier this week. Stay tuned - once I make it through the pile o' work that built up while I was gone, I'll be taking a peek at all the cool stuff I found while walking NSS and doing a roundup.

At the risk of sounding like a huge nerd, it's been a lifelong dream of mine to attend the National Stationery Show in New York. Ever since I was just a wide-eyed intern at DG Inventive (RIP), I've pictured myself running a booth, hawking my delightful paper goods to thousands of screaming fans.
So, we're not quite there yet, but this year I am proud to announce that our lovely reps at Crow and Canary will be showing our line in their booth! You can find Dude and Chick stock amongst the collection at booth 3124, if you happen to find yourself at NSS next week (May 19th-22nd). Be sure to check this space soon - I'll be officially releasing our new fresh designs on the first day of the show.

mama's weekend

A major downside to living in Los Angeles and working with a dude who lives halfway across the country is that, sometimes, I miss special weekends like this one. I leave for the National Stationery Show at the end of next week (don't worry, a preview of our new stuff is coming soon!), and it just wasn't in the budget (financially or mentally) to make it up to Portland for Mother's Day and my Mom's birthday, both of which fall on the same weekend this year.
And so, in lieu of my presence, I just wanted to take a moment on my corner of the internet to honor the sassy, headstrong, beautiful lady that is my mom.
I love you, Mama! I'll make it up to PDX for some mother/daughter partytime soon.

monae for all

Our crazy lead-up to the National Stationery Show is almost finished - the release is done, the catalogs are printed (by my not-so-trusty Konica Minolta) and soon I'll be floating around NYC with not a care in the world. In the meantime, my internet lack of presence has been slight, but I managed to catch this video with the always amazing Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu - two of my top style icons. But seriously. Monae can work a tux like nobody's business, that booty don't lie.
