DIY Thankful Jar Printable

  November is upon us once again and with all the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holiday season, it is always good to take a breath, slow down, and put things in perspective.  This year, we are starting a new tradition in our home called the Thankful Jar.  You may have noticed friends & family on Facebook and other social media expressing something they are thankful for each day of November... This is another spin on that idea.  Each day, we each secretly write down something we are thankful for and place it in the jar.  At the end of the month, we then take out the slips and read them together.  We got this idea from one of our dear friends and are excited to share it with you!  You can make your own Thankful Jar with our free printable below!

Fly My Pretties, Fly!

Happy All Hallows Eve!  In our house, it has become a Halloween tradition to lovingly humiliate our two pugs Sylvie Grace & Atticus Finch by making them dress up in hilarious costumes. Last year they were Little Red Riding Hood & the Big Bad Wolf... this year we were inspired by the Wizard of Oz and created flying pug monkeys!  So from our castle to yours, we wish you a hauntingly happy Halloween!

{New Work} Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue

Last time, we showed you our latest work for Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue.  This week, we have part 2!  In addition to the Shop for a Cause designs, we were asked to create the event logo & email banner for the First Annual Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue PugFest! This was so much fun to create & we could not be happier to contribute to such a great cause!

In addition to to PugFest 2012, we also designed the annual fundraiser calendar cover!  You can order your copy today through Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue's website.  Proceeds go to pug rescue!  Needless to say, all of our friends & family will be getting one of these babies :)

{New Work} Shop for a Cause!

  We are so excited to show you what we've been working on for Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue!  They are an awesome organization that take in, foster, & find forever homes for our favorite little snorters, the pugs!  Rescue groups hold a very near & dear place in our hearts.  One of our pugs, Atticus Finch, is a rescue, and we could not be more grateful for such organizations! So it was a great honor & pleasure to work with MAPR to help promote their rescue group.  We created several new designs for their online store to help raise money for the puggies!  Want to shop for some great gear while helping a great cause at the same time?  Click here! These make cute gifts & perfect Christmas presents for that pug lover in your life :)

  The first collection we created is called the "Preppy Pug."  
Monograms are a hot trend right now, so we created this design based on the circle monogram look.  With fun colors and patterns, there's something for everyone!  
 The next collection is called "Don't Shop...Adopt."  
We based this design on the widely known ADOPT poster and its distinct look.
The third collection we named "The Essential Pug."
Aptly named, this collection conveys the basics of pug life: Eat. Sleep. Play. Snort.  We love all of the little pugisms these guys have, especially those crazy snorty noises and the booty scooty butt run that all pug people know and love.  

      We hope we can help MAPR do some serious fundraising!  They are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is totally volunteer run.  If you're interested in adopting a pug or simply volunteering, give them a shout, you'll be glad you did!

{New Work} Sweet and Simple Creations

  Are you gaga for cupcakes? Could you spend all day on Etsy looking at cool handmade stuff? Then you are going to love our newest client, Sweet and Simple Creations!  Based in New York, these two gals work their magic in the kitchen & the craft room, serving up crafty creations & tasty treats.  They came to us in search of a logo, expressing an interest in pink & brown and incorporating the ideas of sweet and simple.  We created several design options and they narrowed it down to these two:

We had a blast working with them & can't wait to see more sweet & simple creations!
