Here are some photos from the weekend:

We empty my main level of furniture and set up our displays!  Luckily, we don't have to move our piano because it makes an awesome way to display little things!


Christmas trees and more ornaments
New this year: our wishing tree!
As customers left, they took a wish with them.  Each one had a different secret message - our wish for them for the new year!

Spot and Share!

We love, Love, LOVE when you guys spot some of our work and share it with us! 

We've had spottings and photos sent to us from all around the country and that never fails to blow our minds!

Here's some of our mom rules for "This Thing Called Family" that a Facebook friend spotted:

Gabby's Gifts - Galena, IL

This sighting of TTCF is super cool because this shop is owned by Leigh Standley DiBernardo AKA Curly Girl Design.

Marmalade - Belmont, MA

TTCF in a Marriott gift shop, LAX (spotted by one of our mother-in-laws!)

We spotted some of our alphabet tiles for TTCF, spelling the words "fun, "bones" and "candy" in this spooky store display!

Broadbent Gifts - Cadiz, KY

Our Welcome sign for TTCF appears in this super cool wall photo - we were tagged on Instagram!

Recently Green Girl Laura herself was watching House Hunters on HGTV and one of the houses had our "Believe" sign from TTCF hanging in the laundry room!

Ya'll are also great at sending us photos of our original pieces in your homes!
 It means the world to us that you would take the time to share these!

Collaborative Family Art Journal

C.R. Gibson, the company that makes our line, {Enjoy} the Little Things, recently gave us one of their Markings journals to doodle in and share with all of you!

Periodically, you'll be getting glimpses into this collaborative family art journal via our Instagram.  We'll be passing it back and forth between the three of us, so it should be really interesting!  
You'll want to make sure you're following us over there!

To see what other artists have done in their journals, visit MarkingsJournals on Instagram.  

Here's one of the first 2-page spreads I (jill) whipped up, based on a recent popular piece that several teachers requested for their classrooms.

 Next, I passed the journal on to Mama Winger, so stay tuned (on Instagram) for photos of her new journal pages!

Can't wait to see more of what Mama Winger and Green Girl come up with!

Find Things With Wings at the Summer Gift Markets!


We've gathered all of the resources for finding Things With Wings products at the Summer gift markets into one convenient post!

(Now that we're working with a few different companies, it can get confusing.
We thought this might make it a little simpler!)


Head to the DEMDACO showroom!
The link will take you to a list of the exact locations for Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and Las Vegas.

This is where you'll find "This Thing Called Family" - our longest running line.  In our DEMDACO line you'll find many functional kitchen items, the Mom Rules (wall versions and NEW mini block versions!) the alphabet collection, lots of wall art, and brand NEW for this summer: tea towel/spoon gift sets with coordinating mugs and chopping boards.

Plus much, much more!

New for Summer 2014!


Head to the C.R. Gibson Showroom!
The link will take you to more info on exactly where their showroom is in Dallas, Atlanta and Las Vegas.

This is where you'll find {Enjoy} the Little Things.  Included in this line are photo albums, journals, a sticky note set, gift enclosure cards, burlap wall art, block plaques, and more!  Brand NEW this summer - a Christmas collection you'll love!
New for Summer 2014!


Head to the Magnet Works Showroom!
The link will take you to more detailed info about where their showroom is located in Dallas, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Minneapolis.

Here you'll find our collection of family-oriented MatMates and DrinkblotsMatMates are an interchangeable mat system that can be used as welcome mats or kitchen mats on their own, but really come to life when inserted into the trays.  You can trade out the art based on the seasons or your mood!

Also at Magnet Works you'll find our family-themed Christmas DrinkBlots!  DrinkBlots are beautiful, super-absorbent paper art coasters that come in notepad-inspired packaging. They are reusable, recyclable and sturdy. One of the remarkable things about DrinkBlots is that each set contains 24 unique designs, so no two coasters in the deck are the same! 

We hope this makes your shopping trip a little easier.
Have a great time!

If you have any questions, just let us know.

Let us know what you order-
And since we won't be there ourselves, take some photos for us!  :-)
