Happy Friday, y'all! A lot has been happening around here lately. James and I have been busy organizing our small space to make room for the little man who arrives in just a few weeks (!), which has been challenging but also kinda fun. I'll take a few pictures when everything is set up and ready to go. We've been so lucky to receive so many nice things for the baby from family and friends. A lot of it has to be packed away until we move in January, but I can't tell you how excited I am to unpack everything and set up Archie's nursery next year. We are going to have such a good time putting his room together!
My friend Lindsay's new space, 200 Mill, opened on the Marietta square last week, and I am so proud and thrilled for her -- it is a beautiful shop. She shares 200 Mill with two other talented artists, Dana Poor and Ashley Woodson Bailey. These photos were taken right before their grand opening -- aren't they gorgeous?! (See even more photos here.) I was flattered to be asked to sell some of my NMP goodies in their shop. Those are some of my cards and stamps below, in good company with Gunner & Lux and Yes Ma'am Paper Goods!
Y'all know I love my Athens, but Marietta has it going on. So many creative gals are living in that neighborhood, making great things happen all the time! I'm happy to call some of them my friends from afar -- a few of them I've actually never met in real life but consider them my friends through the Web (social media is great that way!) Sometimes I have to admit, I wish Athens was a teeny tiny bit closer to Atlanta...
...but then, I'll pass on the traffic. I miss living in the city, but I don't miss all that traffic! Oy.
A few links and other fun things to share before the weekend:
So many of these made me laugh out loud. The first one especially.
My new fave Etsy shop, Smile Mercantile. I want it all.
Loving this amazing holiday wreath -- so unique and pretty!
Books that can change your life.
Etsy recently featured my New Orleans address stamp in their newsletter! Yay!
Also super excited that Martha Stewart Weddings featured my maps on their site! All the squeals.
I hope y'all have a great weekend! -- Natty
