Giveaway: tag team tompkins


Today's final Handmade Holiday giveaway
is from an Etsy shop that I've only known about since October; I've been infatuated since the moment I saw it.


It's no doubt that tag team tompkins letterpress prints are simply perfect. Black + White. Letterpress in the spirit of vintage paper cuts. Charming quotes for the everyday + holiday quotes for festive decor. Beautiful calligraphy + handmade goodness. Love, love, love.


Here's a brief bio from the dynamic duo that makes up tag team tompkins:

Diane and Madeline make paper art that centers around word play. Our original hand-lettered and paper cut designs and letterpress art prints let us express our love of paper, ink, and a bit of wisdom or humor.

We blend our midwestern sensibilities with a global itch. Travel near or far lights our imagination. We partner well together from years of practice, being mother and daughter.

This mother-daughter pair are working hard to crank out new designs all the time. I've already purchased several prints for our new home and I know exactly where they will go. Thank you Diane and Madeline for sharing your creative talents with us all!

My favorite is "Who loves me will love my dog also."

Gosh, it's hard to choose a favorite! Love so many of them. I find the dire warnings to be so cute. And I'm strangely attracted to the bah, humbug one - even though I don't usually feel that way!

Lovely mother/daughter pair.
