Melissa Moss Art Prints

Some art has the power to take one to wonderlands created in the mind of the artist. Melissa Moss’s creations do just that for me, transporting me to a fantastical world filled with pretty colored skies and lush, tentril abundant plants that enjoy eating people or, at the very least, teasing them a bit.

Melissa has made many of her paintings into prints, which are available from her Etsy shop. Check out more of Melissa Moss’s artwork on her website.

Green Chair Press Type Collage Coasters

Green Chair Press Type Collage Letterpress Coasters

I’m a typography nut and a letterpress nut, so I was overcome with excitement when I saw these teal Type Collage letterpress coasters from Green Chair Press. I love the bold touches of color amongst the teal typography and think that these coasters would be the center of attention at any drinks-included gathering. Well, they would be if I were one of your guests. Plus, the ink is waterproof, so no worries about running. $12.00 for a set of 5.

Sunshiny Letterpress from Bellis Studios

Bellis Studios Sunshiny Letterpress

I’m loving Bellis Studios’ “Sunshiny” letterpress collection, filled with lovely designs in yellow, one of the most sought after colors of the year.

The “Sunshiny” collection offers a little bit of everything, including (clockwise, from top left): letterpress note cards, gift tags, bookmarks, and Mother’s Day cards, making it easy for you to add a little bit of yellow to your world.

Martha Stewart Crafts

I’ve been stalking the new Martha Stewart Crafts site for a little while now, waiting for it to open for business, so imagine my delight when I saw decor8’s post about the site’s grand opening.

Martha is the mistress of sophisticated craftiness, and I’m so excited to see that the paper items and craft projects on the site retain the understated elegance that for which Martha Stewart is known. Like there was any doubt!

You can purchase the Martha Stewart Crafts line online or at your local Michael’s craft store. The craft projects, gift wrap, and tissue paper pom poms are tops on my list, though I’m sure I’d take one of everything if I could.
