For Sweethearts Who Stitch

Hot off the press, just in time for Valentine's Day!

My mother inspired me to create these new personalized knitting tags. She's an amazing knitter and seamstress, who's taught me everything I know. When she sends one of her knitted masterpieces, she often includes the wrapper from the skein of yarn as a reminder of how to care for the gift. Now she has a nice way to say she made the garment, as well as how to take care of it. And inside the tag is a place for her to write a personal message.

I've created a version for those who sew as well:

And a few housekeeping notes here too... personalized seed packets are back in stock after the Christmas rush due to some fantastic press. (A great big thank you to the folks at Southern Living!) I have a couple of new seed packet designs in the works as well. Stay tuned for those.

Thank you also to Jane at simple + pretty for mentioning personalized index cards as a way to get organized in the new year. I think I need to take her advice.

Snow drop anemone bookplates are also back in stock, and the recipe cards will be soon as well. The 2011 calendars are nearly gone — if you still want one of those, there are only a couple left!

I appreciate everyone's patience as I continue to catch up here. As you've probably figured out by now, I kinda drop off the blogosphere when things get crazy around here!


  1. Love these, Christy! They are brilliant. And congratulations on the Southern Living shout out. Well deserved and soooo impressive.

  2. Hi Christy, love your blog and design work. It is great to see a blog with lots of graphic design content. Do you have your own letterpress? How lovely if you do. I am a fellow graphic designer from Western Australia.

  3. Thanks, Gillian! Yes, I do have my own tabletop letterpress. I am enjoying looking at the beautiful work on your site, too. Thanks for visiting.

  4. will you be restocking these in your store? I would like to order some as a Christmas present
