neither snow…

i fell in love with these beautiful notebooks as soon as i laid my eyes on them… they’re stunning and clever…  i just loved them.

mara from neither snow created these notebooks for the joy thigpen workshop in late february. each notebook was paired with a little worker-bee, stylist apron & they were the perfect pair.


mara’s work is always beyond beautiful & i love seeing her work in person.

please take a look at her blog to see more of her incredible calligraphy & also see this post to hear her thoughts on this creative process.



Mara | Neither Snow - Thanks so much, Rylee! Your photographs are just stunning + it was so much fun to collaborate on this.
