So, I don't have an iphone, but one can dream, right? If I did, there is no doubt that I would get one of these super cool wood cases by Substrata Creative Studios. God I love woodgrain.
Find them here!

I don't feel like giving this post a clever title.

I will leave you this weekend with what might be my new favorite card of ours...'This shit just got real'. You can find it on Etsy! We've also updated our website: http://www.cracked-designs.com, with all of our new cards and such. Neat!

Kyle and Chandler

I had the pleasure of working with Seattle based couple, Kyle and Chandler recently, and just have to say that I love their invitations. It was a challenge at first, but I think the final design is a beautiful mix of modern and clean with a nautical feel. I'm loving the colors they are using too. Super hip. Want to see more of our custom designs? Visit here!

Vintage Book Subscription

I LOVE vintage shops and collecting anything and everything vintage. Adam and I frequent used book stores a lot, and love finding old books covered in dust. So when I came across
Ladies and Gentlemen, on Etsy, I was immediately in love! They have a brilliant idea: a vintage book subscription service! Um, how amazing is that? You buy the subscription, and they send you a new vintage book every month. Their shop is stocked full of tons of other awesome finds too...check out their shop here!

Vintage Brewers Lovin'

I am a huge baseball fan, especially The good ol' Brewers. So when my dad gave me these 70's Brewers scorebooks, I was immediately in love. I could seriously stare at these covers all day, how awesome are they?! Nothing gets me more, than a little vintage design.
