Our Birth Announcements

Last month we got to send out these lovely letterpress birth announcements, welcoming Skyler, to our friends and family. My friend Eva, at Sycamore Street Press, offered to design them for us as a baby gift.

I can’t believe how different our little girl looks every day—this photo was taken when she was almost two-weeks-old. (Though she sort of looks like a wise old soul, doesn’t she?)

I first met Eva (in person) at my first visit to a Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn. (I think she was pregnant at the time with her lovely daughter, Ingrid, and we were all melting in the summer heat.) She and her husband, Kirk, founded the paper company with the mission of a “hand-drawn life” and have fashioned many beautiful things up in the mountains of Utah.

This year they announced two new collections—complete wedding suites and animal return address stamps—and there’s a new baby collection on the horizon. Actually, I was excited to learn that they are releasing a line of gift wrap and baby cards inspired by Skyler’s birth announcement! Be sure to have a look.

Good news: Sycamore Street Press is giving Hither & Thither readers 25% off everything in their shop with the code Hither2014, through May 7th! And contact them if you’re interested in custom work.

P.S. Our first week home with Skyler.
