Merry Early Christmas, everyone!
I know Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but I can’t help being in the Christmas spirit today! As I mentioned before, over the last several months, I have been working with the charming and lovely Missing Q Letterpress on a Holiday collaboration.
I came up with the illustrations and Jason used his incredible graphic design skills and worked tirelessly on producing all of the prints, tags and cards on the antique letterpress machines in his shop. I had so much fun choosing designs, colors, sizes, and packaging everything up with a little touch of Christmas love…you know, the works!
After several months, we are so thrilled to debut the line today!
Also, another little fun fact! Riffraff stores will be carrying the line very soon!
So keep your eyes open all you NWA and Dallas ladies!
And, of course, if you find yourself in the charming historic square of downtown Mckinney, Texas (I’m a little biased!)…Be sure to stop in and purchase a few from Missing Q Letterpress. You won’t leave without something, trust me! A personal treasure catches my eye every time!
Here’s a little sneak peek of what you’ll find in the SigneRoo Holiday Shop!
So for all you Christmassy ladies and gentleman, go check it out here!

Winter in November?
I could hardly believe my eyes when I looked outside last night and saw snow falling. And not just falling, but sticking! That never happens in Texas (in November, at least)! I did a little happy dance when I woke up this morning to a thin dusting covering the ground. Everything looks magical when it’s sprinkled in white. Even if it’s just the tiniest amount of snow.
So bundled up weather has officially begun around here, and i’m not sad about it. I love layers. I love the possibility of what you can do with layers.
So bring on the snow and harsh wintery winds, Texas!
I’m ready for ya!
Christmas should be my middle name.
Frosted window panes, Bing Crosby on vinyl, tinsel and trees.
Our tiny historical square becomes a magical winter wonderland.
And in the midst of that wonderland, sits the quaintest little letterpress shop called Missing Q Press. Jason is the owner and my friend, and we have been working on this collaboration for the last few weeks. I love the artistry behind Letterpress. Jason works on 100 year old machines and everything is meticulously calculated. It’s like stepping back in time. (Check out this video Chad made for Missing Q for a little glimpse into the process!) It has been so fun to see it all come to fruition right before the Holiday season begins.
Be on the lookout for our limited edition line of festive goodies, coming very soon!
They will be available on my blog and in selected retail stores.
You better watch out.
You better not cry.
You better stay tuned…
I’m tellin you why!
This years Halloween came and went too quickly.
Scary movies, pumpkin carving, trick or treaters.
Those things are all behind us, and the Holidays will be here before we know it!
That being said, Chad and I threw our very first Halloween party. It was quite the successful shindig, if I may say so myself. We seriously had so much fun. Snacks were eaten, laughs were had, and the night ended in a costume contest & dance party.
Chad and I spent a few weeks trying to decide what to be. We came up with our costume about a week before Halloween, and I have to say, Chad’s costume was definitely the better one between the two of us. I told him he might have to go grey more often.
Before the party, we shot a few photos with our dear friends Cassie & Aaron.
And of course, Cassie took a few quick snaps of the party details!
