Entries in joie studio (20)


and the winner is . . .

brynn from hilo who will be jotting down her hellos on lovely note cards handmade by my letterpress friends at hour of nine, joie studio and miemiko atelier. i must apologize for the delay in posting the giveaway update, but an unexpected weekend visit required a mad dash to tidy up our nest.

with july starting out with a trip home to attend my fil's funeral, h|h will be taking a summer hiatus to allow me to tend to family affairs and to catch up on offline projects. that said, too good not to share events & sales will be posted on facebook and you are always welcome to follow me on pinterest where i pin the occasional swoon-worthy find.

posting will resume after labor day. (fyi: subscribing to the official email list is a fine way to be notified of my return.)

wishing you a lovely & happy summer . . .


summertime stationery giveaway

aloha friends! alas, back to back family emergencies have pulled me away for the past few weeks, but i wanted to pop in to announce a small summer giveaway.

my mister and i have had two reminders in less than a month's time about how suddenly and unexpectedly loved ones can be lost, and, since we will always have regrets about a missed visit or phone call, i would love to share a trio of letterpress note cards so one lucky reader can fill a few favorite mailboxes with postal cheer.

because sometimes a handwritten note to say hello can be the sweetest way to send a smile to faraway family and friends . . . and letterpress goodness by hour of nine, joie studio (featuring a shop toast design) & miemiko atelier make for even more delightful tidings.

more details on how to enter after the jump.

shop toast spring peeks

how happy would your little one's easter basket be with the addition of shop toast's adorable new cheeky chickies? an empty egg is hidden inside the fabric peeps waiting to be filled with your favorite petite treats. 'tis just one dollar a piece although, due to tiny parts, not intended for keiki under age 8.

and, toast fans will be swooning over all the delightful new offerings for springtime including fresh favor designs, more custom goodness to dress up your party invites, and a boy's day edition of the always popular heartstump.

jeremy and michelle's continuing collaboration with joie studio is about to welcome a wedding paper collection designed to coordinate with toast's favor line. TOAST to JOIE's official introduction happens next month when tina makes her national stationery show debut, but she kindly shared a sneak peek with me to share with you.

find the entire lineup of spring projects from kaimuki's favorite design duo after the jump!

the perfect pair

orders for the TOAST to JOIE wedding collection will be accepted later this spring at joie studio, shop toast, and select retailers. and, say hello to the sweet trio of kokesHE which just arrived online and in shop toast's storefront:

p.s. mark your calendar for next monday & another shop toast children's day cutie!
