For the type who love typography

Last year I pledged to have a handmade holiday, buying handmade gifts for everyone on our shopping list. With the exception of one or two things I accomplished it. I had so much fun I want to try it again this year...but what's fun handmade shopping without friends? I'll be sharing handmade products twice a month in hopes you find a great gift idea for someone!

So you all know I love writing (um duh), but what I enjoy just as much is seeing the written word phrased or displayed in clever ways - especially when I can buy a cute print of it! I know there are others like me out there (right...right?!) so this post is for you. 

This coffee print made me laugh so much! I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but there are definitely days where I need the caffeine, and this print would be perfect for that. (I can also think of at least three people I could buy this for!)

For fellow letter writers, I would recommend these sweet cards from Ashley's shop. I've actually used these (she sent me some when I won a cookbook from her) and I love them! They're flat cards, and give you just enough space for a quick note to say hi or remind someone you're thinking of them.

Know a wine connoisseur? This print is for them. Serious in its plea, but still cheeky with the request. Jenny actually tweeted this print at me after I'd had a long week, and I spent a good amount of time looking at all the great prints in this shop!

I'm all about natural beauty, and when I head out the door looking a little unkempt, I own it. However, for those who might need a little encouragement, and a reminder that they are awesome regardless, I would recommend this print from Rachel's shop. I actually met Rachel when we brunched and her shop is a great reflection of her personality - sweet and fun!

And since I started this post with coffee, it's only appropriate I end it that way, don't you think? Bloggers and coffee kind of go hand in hand - so what could be more perfect than this print?

What do you think? Do you know someone who could use a print about wine or coffee? Are you a fan of cute prints like these?

I love seeing them in hallways or just inside a bathroom - the sentiment is true, and they seem even more fun and unexpected that way!

Happy Monday!

Aw, this is so much fun. I love prints. I have a couple that I am thinking about buying for my piano room. They are fun and quirky. One says "Math is Marvelous". ;) They are so me! These ones are awesome, too!

That first coffee one literally made me LOL. I might've even snorted a little...

How cute, I love all of these. Especially the blogs and coffee one. I wish I was a crafty person, but I'm just not!

How funny---I have both "Embrace messy hair" and "I love you, blogs and coffee" above my desk :) I can personally attest to their loveliness.

Oooooh, that coffee one is fantastic! Love the illustration. I just love this post—must add a few more etsy shops to my favorites this morning. :)

I love the coffee print - and the messy hair one :) I've bought cards from Ashley's shop a couple of times now and I love them :)
