Trying new things! We’re currently working on our 2021 letterpress desk calendars, our third, and we learn something new each year. We are loving that our expanded palette allows us to combine colors in new and exciting ways. Adding three or four more colors allows for a new type of freedom!

Favorite Flower?

Any flowers my kids pick for me! And also ranunculus!

Favorite Indulgence?

Ice cream, of course. Preferably strawberry with rainbow sprinkles.
