i came across these jessica gonacha prints the other day and just had to share them with you. aren’t they sweet? i want to buy a bunch of different ones and hang them in my home somewhere on a clothesline the way jessica did in the photographs. and i love the messages on the prints – they’re something we all need to hear every once in awhile, right?

in addition to prints, jessica’s shop is filled with notecards, pillows and even a set of hand-printed cloth napkins, which i love. i’m really into hand-printed things right now – so much so that i think i want to start making my own, which is why i ordered lena corwin’s new book, printing by hand. ok, ok, full disclosure: i’m the kind of girl who gets really, really excited about a project and then stops just short of starting or finishing. (i talked about making my own patterned key racks for months and they never materialized…alas.) but hopefully this gorgeous book will motivate me to get moving. or printing.
