'Tis The Season

A TIME TO GIVE: I love this time of year. I love that it reminds us to think about what's important, to spend time with loved ones, to reach out to those in need... This season, Elle from Solly Baby invited us to be a part of their Deck the Halls with Diapers campaign, along with Little Hip Squeaks, Paloma's Nest, Munkstown, Ashmae, LWPH Sews, Small Fry, Meg in Progress, Collected, and A Little Bit of Lacquer. From December 9 - 12, we at Sycamore Street Press donated a pack of diapers for every order over $50. Some of the other shops involved did similar matching donations, and some gave a flat amount. All together, 4000 diapers were donated to SAY San Diego, who had just run out of diapers and were floored by the donation. (Read all the details here on the Solly Baby blog.) We are grateful for the small part we could play in this because of our amazing customers, to all the other companies involved, and to Solly Baby for making it happen!

A NEW PROJECT:

I've been having fun over on my Instagram feed (@SycamoreStreetPress) with a new hand lettering project. Some of you may recall that I had a Quote of the Week hand lettering project here on the blog back in 2011. Well, this time I am upping the ante, making it a daily project (M-F) called Eva's Everyday Lettering. Each month, I pick a theme for the quotes. (In November, it was "Give Thanks" and December has been "The Spirit of the Season".) You can find them all in my feed, or search for the hashtag #evaseverydaylettering. Each month, I'll be posting my favorites here on the blog.

IN CONCLUSION:

Well, that's it for 2013! We'll be slowing down for the next couple of weeks to spend time with family and re-group for the new year. (We've got big plans... including a wedding collection to launch in January.)

Kirk and I are so grateful to every one of you for supporting our family business! Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year's!
