Last call clearance sale on kitchen conversion prints

Last call clearance sale on kitchen conversion prints

July 21, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

When we first introduced these kitchen conversion prints 6 years ago, it was a bit of a revelation because it was the first time we added non-food items to our product line. I also printed these on tea towels for a few years (who remembers those?). It was a great run and we sold a few thousand of these posters and prints, but it's time to retire them now and move on. We'll be discontinuing the kitchen conversion posters after August 13, so here's your last chance to get them – and save 20% too! Use code: LASTCALL. Available on our website or on Etsy. … CONTINUE READING

It’s almost June which means Father’s Day is around the corner

It’s almost June which means Father’s Day is around the corner

May 30, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

I saw someone mention something on social media the other day about how we're already halfway through 2017 and I nearly flipped out. But it's (almost) true. The end of May snuck up on us this year which means Father's Day snuck up on us this year too, but our gift boxes are now up and you can save 15% off if you pre-order your gift box by June 1st with code 15FOFDAD. I love this gift box as it has some of our bestsellers - the Hazelnut Whisky, and Massaman Curry Peanut Butter sandwich cookies, as well as bourbon marshmallows and the double chocolate cookies with smoked sea salt (which we hope to sell in packages in… CONTINUE READING

Something new in this year’s Mother’s Day gift box

Something new in this year’s Mother’s Day gift box

April 26, 2017 |  Category:   art + design the biz

I've been drawing more lately and it's always been a goal to try and integrate a bit more of what I do into our business. There's the product photography and food styling, of course, but when we were thinking of this year's Mother's Day gift box it seemed like a perfect opportunity to introduce some artwork into our product line. So we're happy to announce that with this year's Mother's Day gift box, we are including a 5x7" greeting card featuring an original botanical illustration. This is the latest in a series of pen and ink drawings I've been working on. It's printed on 100% rag fine art paper and I'm so pleased with how it turned out… CONTINUE READING

Spring break and a sale

Spring break and a sale

April 11, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

I'm writing this post from the road as we make our way up North. It's been awhile since we've travelled and a change in scenery and pace is really welcome even though we're shutting down the business for a week (we're having a sale, by the way, over at the shop: 15% off with code SPRINGBREAK this week and orders will begin shipping again on the 17th upon our return). Being freelancers and business owners mean you don't get paid vacations, but you can't put a dollar amount on experiences and a mental break. … CONTINUE READING

Limited edition Marshmallow minis

Limited edition Marshmallow minis

March 28, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

Popping in quick to announce a limited edition product that's now available on our site through April 7th (or until quantities last). These mini marshmallows would be perfect in Easter baskets and come in two flavors inside the box: strawberry and vanilla. Totally kid approved - no, really! Miss C took a poll among her friends for their favorite marshmallow flavors...and that's what we made! Also available on our Etsy shop too. Happy Spring, friends. We're patiently awaiting blooms and signs of green here in the city. It seems like it's taking forever to arrive! … CONTINUE READING

Get cozy with a hot chocolate and marshmallow sale

Get cozy with a hot chocolate and marshmallow sale

February 13, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

Hi friends. We had to cancel an event yesterday so we have some extra product that we'd love to ship out this week. Since we've just had snow and there's another storm headed towards New England (looks like it's going to miss NYC!), we thought a sale on marshmallows and hot chocolate was fitting. From no till Feb 15, take 15% off all Hot Chocolate Mixes and marshmallows with code GETCOZY on our site or on Etsy (prices as marked on Etsy, no coupon code needed). Have a great week and stay warm! … CONTINUE READING

hearts and a sale

hearts and a sale

January 23, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

Like many of you around the country, I participated in the women's march this past Saturday. While I do have thoughts about the weekend that I want to share, I wanted to pop in with a quick note about a sale for Valentine's Day (which somehow is already around the corner!) Take 15% off all gift boxes until January 25 with code LOVEWINS. This includes our Little Box of Valentine's Day Cookies which make an appearance every year. We've got a new linzer cookie - a brown butter passionfruit linzer sandwiched with a chocolate filling - along with our Rosemary Meyer Lemon Sandwich Cookies and Chocolate Chili Hearts. Two other Valentine's Day themed gift boxes include… CONTINUE READING

A year of flowers. It’s the little things that make a difference

A year of flowers. It’s the little things that make a difference

October 12, 2016 |  Category:   photography the biz

Last week, our 2017 calendars went on sale (available on our site and on Etsy) and this year's calendar is a departure from our usual food and NYC calendars. We've been playing with flowers all year – in our food, in sketches and watercolors, and also in collages (three from the series I did this summer are below). It only seemed fitting to do a floral calendar this year and it's always nice to change things up. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed putting this year's calendar together. When my start up tech job ended earlier this year, we had to go back to being on a strict budget now that I was… CONTINUE READING

Fall Sale (and a little catch up)

Fall Sale (and a little catch up)

September 12, 2016 |  Category:   the biz

We've been back from the West Coast for a week and trying to get our bearings as school begins and we get ready for the busy Fall season. There are so many photos and thoughts I want to post from our trip, but now that the heavy humidity and heat from the past few days have lifted, it seems like a good time to announce a Fall sale. The air feels so fresh and cool this morning! And it feels like cookie season again. Pumpkin Ginger Sandwich Cookies are back in the shop, but only for a few months. Take 20% off your entire order on either our website or our Etsy shop until… CONTINUE READING

May 28, 2016 |  Category:   the biz

We're mixing things up with our Father's Day Gift Box this year with bourbon marshmallows made with Marker's Mark bourbon. It's a bit of a change from the chocolate stout beer marshmallows we've been making for the past few years. What other goodies are inside the box? Double chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips and smoked sea salt. And if you order early this Memorial Day weekend, enjoy $5 off. No coupon code needed - the sale price is marked. … CONTINUE READING

The weather is finally warm here in NYC and this reminds us that Mother's Day is right around the corner. If you aren't signed up for our mailing list, join for an exclusive sale code that we'll be sending to our email subscribers Monday for Mother's Day gifts (we don't send very many emails, only sale codes, promise!). After experimenting with live streaming for a year on Meerkat and Periscope, we're trying out Facebook Live. If you like us on Facebook, you'll be able to see our livestream in your feed (well, depending on the FB algorithms). We hope to do more broadcasts from markets and the kitchen, as well as interesting places and… CONTINUE READING

February, and not standing still

February, and not standing still

February 1, 2016 |  Category:   life the biz

The first month of the year is now filed away in the history books. Hello February. It’s now time to get serious about 2016. Valentine’s Day always sneaks up so quickly behind the holidays, as far as the business goes. Our ordering deadline is this Saturday, the 6th. We have a limited number of hot chocolate and marshmallow heart gift boxes and our Little Box of Valentine’s Day Cookies are back too. The cookies may vary a bit each year, but this sweet little box is always among my favorites. So it was right around this time last year that I wrote about my intentions to return my attention back to the business. Well, that didn’t happen. 2015 derailed me… CONTINUE READING
