I’m almost too embarrassed to say that I got new business cards, again. I feel like I’ve shown you a lot of new promo material lately, but I really needed personal business cards. You know, the kind that people read and then actually know what name to call you besides just “Sugar & Cloth”. Let’s be honest, being called Sugar & Cloth randomly out of context kind of sounds like it could be a stripper name.
This time around I asked Mike from Eat Sleep Ride Print to help me bust out some last minute cards, and I’m totally in love with them! They are letterpressed on both sides and are much more gender neutral than my previous design, not to mention they were a total hit at the blog conference this past weekend!

I’m a total sucker for cute packaging. In fact, just last week I bought 4 more macaroons than I really needed just because the mint green box was too cute to pass up (don’t judge me). I want people to have the same experience and excitement when it comes to the S+C shop items, so I’ve been working on designing some materials for the launch at the end of this month.
I decided on magnetic business cards to ship with items as a goodie of sorts instead of traditional cards that tend to get tossed. I combined bold stripes & colors with an understated logo so that it’s cute enough to use, but doesn’t scream sales pitch (I hate sales pitches). I designed these myself but had them printed courtesy of BuildASign.com, and they turned out great! What do you think? Is this something you would keep?

Honestly, what’s not to love about Jihan Zencirli’s Geronimo studio? If I had to be sent to time-out, I would gladly pay for it to be in a corner of this space! You can drool over the rest on I Art U.

So I’ve been dabbling in a little Craigslist action these past few days and I must say, I’m not the negotiating type, unless I’m feeling feisty, and in that case everybody watch your limbs. Sometimes its a necessary evil though, like when you really need the extra space to be able to make your apartment more functional, like me. All of this to say, that I’m so excited about my new found space that I can’t wait to turn it into to something useful… and to have a good reason to hunker over Pinterest looking for cool spaces, like these birds eye view rooms.

If Kate Spade had kids with Jonathon Adler, they’d totally come out designing rad paper goods like these from Sugar Paper in Los Angeles. They’re so chic & awesome at the same time, I’m in love..
