Schoolhouse Electric’s Fall ’14 Line

You guys. It’s a big day for me and the rest of the Schoolhouse Electric team. After 5 months of hard work, our new line launches today.

It’s incredibly inspiring to launch a collection. The details matter. And there are SO many of them. So many that you think you are going to lose your mind. But then somehow, it all comes together in the end. The photoshoots, press checks, image reviews, packaging, website mock-ups…I won’t bore you with the logistics, but I can assure you, this is no small feat, and I’m thankful to be on a team that loves the chaos.

To see the full collection, vist our website here. Anything you have your eyes on? Do tell!

Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to get some sleep. And maybe a drink or two as well:)…

{Guest Post} What’s In My Bag?

I work with some really lovely and crazy talented folks at my job at Schoolhouse Electric. It’s truly a treat to work alongside such vibrant people, and two ladies I’m honored to spend time with are Kara and Tess of Egg Press. They’re our upstairs neighbors in the Schoolhouse factory building, and the letterpress goodies they create are simply stunning. If you’ve received a note from me lately, chances are Egg Press designed it by hand and then printed it on one of its many vintage letterpresses.

Recently, Egg Press introduced the Social Preparedness Kit, so none of us would go too long without keeping in touch with the people that are near and dear to us. The kit makes sending a note easy, as the products work together and seamlessly integrate into everyday life. So far, I’m loving the card sets and the tear away notes – I’ll never be stuck without a card ever again!

Our Basement…So Close!

Are you guys sick of me talking about our basement? Good. Because I am too. I promise, we are oh so close to the end of the road on this renovation. No, really. We are realllly close. We just need two sinks installed (the bathroom and the laundry room) and then we’ll be in business. In fact, we are so close to wrapping up this project that I was going to snap some photos with my mighty Nikon this weekend, but a friend is actually borrowing my camera, so a few detailed iPhone sneak peek photos will have to suffice for now.

As you can see, we went with a fairly neutral color palette to keep things nice and fresh, as basements tend to feel dark and gloomy. More to come from me this week!

August Pinterest Favorites

I know this post is titled “August Pinterest Favorites” but I should really call it “Things I Want To Buy For Myself But Never Will.” The latter title is much more authentic, but I guess I’ll stick with the original one since it’s tradition. A girl can dream, right?
