christmas is coming! christmas is coming!

once october hits, there's usually only three things on my mind: hot caramel apple cider, super chic scarves, and christmas. yes, that's right, i skip those other two major holidays and go straight to christmas.

i can't wait for the lights! and the snow! and all the decorations everywhere! and the muuuusiccc that lasts forever and a day.... oh the joy :D

so i like to get a head start on making my yearly (except last year, which i skipped..) christmas cards! and this year it'll be two of us, so there will be plenty for all to help spread the christmas spirit. here's a couple, and keep a lookout in our shop for more to come... :)

signed, sealed & delivered.

today was a great day : ) besides the perfect crisp & sunny fall weather, crystal and i got together and packaged some of our items to be sent out. we thought the packages were so cute that we just had to take pictures of them and post here you are!

cute little brown packages, waiting to be mailed out

a close up. remember those tags? :)

in other news, i think i'll post some save-the-dates soon that can be customized and will match with those pretty placecards i posted about before. : )

have a great weekend!

busy little silkworm

the &silk side has been a little quiet on the blog... i've been working to finish a custom order after finaallly getting my beads in the mail, and it probably doesn't help that i'm not very partial to blogging..

anyway, good news! our shop is having our first sale! we're celebrating the beginning of fall and our new shop :) enjoy 25% off your purchase at paper&silk when you mention "grandopening" in your order!

more items will be posted soon too! i've been working on some headpieces and i loooove them! i just need to figure out a way to take good pictures with my camera phone, or have someone take them for me. which reminds me.. anyone interested in taking pictures or modeling for us? :)

pix for the road:
new ribbon belt and matching headpiece, coming soon to etsy!
