gifting the stamp: chris and robin wright

i had the most lovely request while i was home in massachusetts two weeks ago: to design a stamp as a gift to a very special sister.  i more than happily spent one of the rainier days inside with my puppy, drawing up different variations for chris and robin wright's columbus, ohio address, and the result was met with smiles on the faces of the sisters; the sender and receiver both.

oh hello new england stamp - schiavi family

my parents came to visit chicago last week, bringing with them my favorite red barn coffee roasters coffee, a six-pack of sam adams, extra yoga mats so they could take my class, and just so so so much fun.  and while they were here, my mum commissioned me to make a stamp for our home back in massachusetts.

i had such a wonderful time with them, and i can't wait to see this new little stamp in it's rightful place on the kitchen counter in milford, massachusetts when i go back to visit in august.

a windy city kind of stamp - ashlie and bryan karns

 

i love love love getting requests from people to make a stamp, either on or off my etsy shop, and then seeing where they're coming at me from.  some from far away (a macon, georgia return address is in the works), and some, surprisingly, from just around the block.  ashlie just recently moved to chicago from new york, and wanted her new home address at the ready when she arrived - presumably to use on some 'we've moved!' announcements - so voila!  all wrapped up in jillyink packaging, here's ashlie and bryan's new return address stamp:

 

ashlie was such a pleasure to work with, and i wish her and bryan all the best in their new home - especially now that chicago's warmed up quite a bit!
