30% of all sales this week to RAICES

30% of all sales this week to RAICES

June 26, 2018 |  Category:   the biz

As a first generation immigrant, this administration's handling of the border crises is the issue on top of many issues during this presidency that feels like a punch in the gut. The separation of families should be a non-partisan issue because it's a cruel policy. I know it's not the same situation at all, but I can't help but think about how I was separated from my mother for 2 years when I was a baby because she decided to take advantage of an opportunity to come to America. I wrote a bit about the story here last year when my grandmother passed away. While I can't relate to what unimaginable stress these separated families—and particularly the… CONTINUE READING

A ‘get cozy’ kind of sale

March 1, 2018 |  Category:   the biz

Hmmm...we're getting news that another one of those "bomb cyclone" type Nor'easter storms is headed to the NE tonight. I guess winter isn't over yet! March can be such a doozy and last night, the kids and I listed the reasons why March is sometimes our least favorite month. But we're having a sale on all things cozy to help – 20% off all our marshmallows and hot chocolate mixes. Sale is in effect until March 3rd, code: GETCOZY. … CONTINUE READING

Eat more cookies and help us raise money for hurricane recovery efforts

Eat more cookies and help us raise money for hurricane recovery efforts

October 4, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

It's been a devastating month of news. I hope all of you are hanging in while trying to make sense of recent events, but to be honest, the world doesn't make much sense right now. It seems we just keep reeling from one tragedy to the next. If you have personally been affected by the hurricanes or the shootings in Las Vegas, we are so sorry. The only thing we can do is help in anyway we can. We'll be donating 25% of all sales from our website the first two weeks of October to Unicef and United for Puerto Rico to help in the recovery efforts. Hang in there, friends. … CONTINUE READING

FALL SALE + other biz news

September 13, 2017 |  Category:   the biz

It's been awhile, hasn't it? And I do want to tell you about our annual trip out to the NW, but first things first: a Fall sale to kick off our favorite season. Take 20% off our entire inventory on our website with code FALLYAY17 through September 15 (sale prices are automatically priced on our Etsy shop). It's been a hectic return to NYC (have we only been back a week? It feels like our travels were a month ago!), but we are finally settled back into routines and despite a crazy Fall schedule this year, very much looking forward to the new season.… CONTINUE READING

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

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
