There is just so much amazing inspiration out in the world, how do we take it all in? It's kind of inspiring in itself how much beauty there is in the world and how we can capture it through sight, photos, art, senses, etc. What do you think? :)
I've had this idea for a while and tried to get it made with washi tape but I had to order some huge amount like 10,000 rolls or something. Which was kind of a lot ;) So I was super excited to get this tape printed with our designs. I figured you guys would really appreciate this because you like packaging and nifty things! Rolls of message tape are available here in the shop!
The tape is simple - you just tear at each message and place on your package/envelopes/whatever! Rolls are just $10 each and a roll will last you quite a while with hundreds of little messages per roll! (haven't actually counted how many there are but it's a lot!)
Calling all letter lovers - we've got a roll especially for you with special package sayings like: airmail, send more letters, special delivery, please deliver to, & more!
So what do you guys think? Any specific sayings you'd like to see or think would be cool? Our next designs will include occasions like birthdays and holidays! Don't miss out on getting a roll of tape for yourself here at the shop! Also available in our retail shop.
With the introduction of this new product, we thought it'd be fun to give away a roll of tape to 10 lucky winners! Simply tweet / facebook / or instagram an image from this post and come back and comment here! Be sure to tag @ohhellofriend so we can track your entries.
* this is a original idea designed and produced by by oh, hello friend. tape is printed in the usa.
So I'm a big tv-show person. I never used to be but in college Nick introduced me to 24 and Lost so I kind of blame him for getting hooked on television ;) We're always so busy so watching shows is kind of our way of relaxing. We watch a lot of shows. These are our current top shows. Homeland is my current favorite. The Game of Thrones is actually Nick's.. I like it, it's just kind of intense for me. We started watching Mad Men a while ago and thought it was so boring. But we started up again just because it's received so many awards and everything so we thought we'd try it again and it is really good! Downton of course, nothing more needs to be said about that show ;) The Walking Dead made a comeback, it started getting really boring around the farm time but we're big fans now. and Sherlock, wish they'd release more episodes in a season! and I'll always be a fan of Grey's Anatomy but Nick doesn't watch that with me. Told you we watch a lot of tv!
Okay, so what shows do you watch? Any of these? Any good shows you recommend? It's interesting because I was talking to a friend and she really only watches comedy like modern family and 30 rock. We're not too big on comedy shows, weird. Hope you don't think we're weird because we watch a lot of television! So share your fave shows and guilty pleasures, I want to hear what everyone out there watches :)
I really like scissors. They're a simple desk accessory but some can be really detailed and gorgeous for such a simple item. I love collecting them and we sell quite a few different pairs at the shop... maybe a bit too many. A customer walked in and commented, "you sell a lot of scissors" haha ;)
Scissors have been around for quite some time, the history of them is pretty cool actually. What about you - what sort of things are in your collection?
Well it's Friday and the first week of April is already over. Crazy. When did we even reach April so quickly? This weekend we're going to be catching up at the shop since we've been gone for over a week! Toronto was so fun but there is really nothing like being at home and we're glad to be home. Have a great weekend friends!
Is anyone else loving peach right now? Peach paired with mint and yellow (of course) is the ultimate for me. Actually, a lady came in the shop wearing all these colors the other day: her pants were mint, her shirt was peach and her sweater was yellow - she was the coolest! Hope you enjoy today's round up of peach finds!
These mustard pants from Target were an instant buy. I really like this pairing of dusty mint and mustard. It's been sort of cold in the morning but warms up so I just throw on a scarf in the morning. I love scarves too though, I'd wear them year round if it didn't get so hot in the summer.
My shoes are by Swedish Hasbeens, I was introduced to this brand by Ruby. I had never heard of them before! I can't actually afford them and don't own any pairs besides these, which I scored these at the flea market for only $25 bucks! They were pretty worn but I was pretty excited I found some in my size! (Tip: Sometimes I watch Ebay for less expensive options)
Hello April! Thought I'd start the month off with a round up of photos I'm swooning over :) I'm excited for April, it's my Grandmother's birthday and my family will be headed to Sacramento to celebrate her with all our relatives! (my grandma had 7 kids and there are a whole lot of cousins so it's always a fun time getting together) I feel like having little things to look forward to is really encouraging and inspiring to get through each day - because you know there is always something coming up.
Thanks for all your comments over the past few days - We're taking you guys up on some of your Toronto suggestions and it was so encouraging to read all your notes from Friday's post. Thank you friends, i am so fortunate to have such amazing and supportive "blog friends" ;) Hope you enjoy today's swoooooon <3
ps: i know some of you have been asking about monthly desktop calendars, hope to be getting back to designing those soon! there don't seem to be enough hours in the day to do everything you want to do!
