Today it is gray and yucky outside so, this post is not about today but the string of beautiful days we had last week.

I’ve totally decided that the brief bit of fall we have here is my favorite time in Chicago. When it’s cool and sunny the city is really marvelous. Saturday afternoon I went over to my friend Boo’s house and sat on the porch playing with her darling dog and chatting and soaking in the crisp sweater wearing weather.

So, today is a day of life appreciating photos of the season and good friends and likable dogs!

Also, be sure to be checking Marginalia here. My post this week is about my experience teaching undergraduate papermaking so far.

Happy Monday y’all!


Two of my dear friends, Kelly and Grant, are getting married in October. This isn’t exactly new news, they got engaged in January, but they just sent out their save the dates! This is exciting but it’s even more exciting because Made by Good’s very own Drew Ryan designed them!

Aren’t they super cute? It was such a treat to receive this guy in the mail! We’ll be designing (and I’ll be printing) their invites too. So, there are plenty more posts about their wedding paper goods to come.

Congratulations again you two! I’m looking forward to a summer of wedding activities!

Hi everybody!  I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in a bit but, don’t worry, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been super busy making stuff and finding out about all sorts of great to post about super soon.

Today I wanted to show this image of a book I made recently for my friend Anna for another friend Vanessa’s pre-baby gathering. Anna wanted something that folks could write sweet messages in to the soon to be mama of a baby boy. So, I had so much fun!  I decided to go with rich primary colors instead of a baby blue and love the playful feel it gave the book. And isn’t that navy blue paper with all the little bitty dots just darling!? I’m a little bit obsessed.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the picture!  Be watching for a final Karen and Zack wedding post, a super exciting Etsy post (maybe even later today), and other goodies that are on their way! Happy Tuesday!
