A new print + giveaway winner

to have & to hold / gold foil print by Paper & Honey


I am so. Excited. So excited. To finally have this gold foiled beauty up in the Paper & Honey shop. Maybe because I kept facing challenges in actually getting prints in the shop (legal and quality control issues, anyone?), or maybe because this is one of my favorite illustrations to date, or maybe the fact that it’s GOLD and I’m not sure there’s anything prettier. Regardless, it’s here and just in time for Valentine’s Day. I wonder if Max would be suspicious if I give him one of these bad boys? Maybe if I wait until our anniversary he’ll forget.

 Sigh. So dreamy.

Now, let’s move on to the real reason you’re here! (I know, I know. Had to sneak in a little self-promotion before I got to the good stuff.) The giveaway winner! Drumroll…


Congratulations Melissa Anderson!

Paper & Honey giveaway winner

Hooray! Melissa, please email me your address at so I can send you what you’ve won! All prizes not seen here. 🙂

Thank you so, so much to everyone that entered this giveaway. It has been so heartwarming and humbling to read all of your encouraging and congratulatory messages this past week, and I truly appreciate the kind words you’ve had to say. I must have declared, “People like it! I did this thing that is generally liked!” two dozen times since my launch, and I’m still having a hard time letting the amazing reception I’ve had sink in. So, again: thank you.

Next week I’m back to regularly scheduled programming and starting my Make Your Mark series back up. Stay tuned! xo


We *are* using their printing presses, though.

This ain't your granddaddy's print shop.
