is that how you spell it? probably not..
anyways, i am overwhelmed by the response to my giveaway
already, way more response than i thought i would have in a day, so yay! that's all I have to say about that :) although i could say much much more.

So in today's news.
I am in a new shop! It is called Redux, and I actually used to work about the shop about a year ago. so so cute, and i'm so happy to be a part of it.
I also stumbled upon this blog today:
it is so fun, just a bunch of pictures representing the style of Portland. just taking random pictures of people on the streets.
I love this quirky town, where anything goes.

oh me oh my, its monday

photo via fffound.
and a very exciting monday it is!
so last week i posted that i was wanting a letterpress machine to learn about the art of letterpress. i knew that it was a long shot, but i really wanted to see, and use one of those babies!
well dreams really do come true.
a friend introduced me to a wonderful woman named Tracy who has been doing letterpress for a few years now (taught be her grandpa, how cute!)
she was so kind and generous to invite me to her house, and learn the art of letterpress.
i was over there for 3 hours and the time flew by, and i must say that i am in love with the art!

and...she is going to let me come over again and print some of my designs.
so, get ready people.. there are going to be some mylittlebuffalo letterpress cards soon.
get pumped!

thanks tracy :)

hey all you portlanders, my church is putting on a DIY fair in November.
The fair is all about making things for people, instead of purchasing things that they'll never ever use.
It's part of our church's initiative through Advent Conspiracy, read about it.
anyways, i made this poster for it, so come!

let your love shine in...

there's a dude that i love that lives in this house, he goes by the name of nate, and he's sick :(
he came home from work sounding like some mouse that has been smoking one too many cigarettes, and not my husband.

I gave him some tea and sent him straight to bed, and although i wanted nothing more that to snuggle up and fall asleep right next to him.. i couldn't...too awake.

so i came out here in the living room and designed what i felt. thinking about putting this little sucker on a card soon.
it's funny how when you are married, or you are best friends, or you are a parent.. the mood of your beloved totally affects your mood as well. if they're sad, you're sad. if they're stoked on life, well so are you.

i like it. i mean it makes sense to me.
if he don't shine, i don't shine..
night all xo

oh how i want one of these machines. I dream about them. my little hands churning out beautiful little imprinted cards and prints with a letterpress machine.

but unfortunately they are a pretty penny. and if i look around my house, i don't see too many of those around :( at all...maybe someday, for now i will just google them and drool, like its my job.
if anyone wants a babysitter for their's, you know who to call ;)

hi pumpkin

I love the Fall, and if you ever hear me deny that statement when the rain starts falling down, just warmly remind me of this post. right. here.

we went to the pumpkin patch with some friends on Sunday, and the place was busy!
But we all took the hayride down the bumpy trail to pick out "the one."
Nate and I 's "one" is still in the trunk of the car for some reason.
I think I like that idea of pumpkin hunting more than the actual pumpkin itself.
oh well. enjoy some pics from the trip :)

Snap to

I have a design focus on this rainy night in which I am alone, well besides for Abe the cat, who loves to vocalize the woes that only he can know himself.
My focus tonight: the kitchen.

I've started thinking about cute artwork for the kitchen. We all spend a majority of our time there. Sleepy mornings as we stumble to get those bran flakes, or coffee:
Wouldn't this art print solve all of those sluggish mornings?
No? Well how about this one.
