Entries in miemiko atelier (8)


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.

meet the press: miemiko atelier

unless you follow h|h on rss, my beautiful calling card printed by miemiko atelier (one of my lovely sponsors in case you are a stickler for that sort of detail) greets you with every post and email. i dare say it charms even more in person! the letterpress collection by oahu designer cari nakanishi was one of my very first discoveries, and our shared crush for good design combined with the revelation that we meandered down the same high school hallways helped establish our mutual admiration society.

serendipity matched cari to her vintage chandler & price press which makes the modern impression required of her artisanal small-batch paper delights. and, until a few days ago, your only chance to scoop up miemiko's lovely paper goods was to happen upon them at a handful of local boutiques.

{insert trumpet fanfare}

happily, every single letterpress offering can now be yours with a click. i have been waiting with bated breath since cari first mentioned the possibility of an online makeover, and am swooning with the news that one and all are officially welcome to say hello! gorgeousness abounds on miemiko's spanking new website from little pretties to style your gifting to sweet notes to pass to your favorite friends.

perhaps i should stop gushing and allow you to follow the jump for paper peeks. (did i mention the shop discount just for the h|h 'ohana? carry on for the 411!)

kokua auction - final round!

lot 3

alrighty, so there have been some serious steals during the kokua auction so far. since the all knowing magic 8 ball says there may be travel in my future, i have decided to accelerate the pace a bit and have just posted the final three auctions on ebay. yep, you read that correctly . . . thanks to the generosity of stancher at etiquette, an extra auction has been added just for the fellas!

remember, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to aloha harvest which does good work helping feed hawaii's hungry.

kokua lot no. 3 (est. retail value: $40):

lot 4, part one
lot 4, part two

kokua lot no. 4 (est. retail value: $175):

lot 5

kokua lot no. 5 (est. retail value: $250):

i suspect everyone has been waiting for the final lot so bid away to your heart's content! the opening bids are a fraction of the estimated value so there are quite a few deals to be had in this final round of the kokua auction.

remember shipping is on me if you live in the states (international bidders pay a flat shipping rate of $5
usd). all auctions end on monday night so happy bidding and mahalo for your kokua!
