girlscantell It's always such a pleasure to get to draw fun new illustrations for @ameliapresents and the @oxfordfilmfest! Really pleased with how this year's @scoutbooks shaped up (and wishing I could scoot down to Mississippi for the festival!) 5d

girlscantell I spent most of today at the drawing board - lots of new illustrations in the works! Last weekend we stopped by the @thesketchbookproject at the Brooklyn Art Library and it was super inspiring (even though I've never been a sketchbook person). What a really amazing, well executed project! #thesketchbookproject #tbt 1w

girlscantell The Valentine chocolates tea towels that I posted a peek of a couple weeks back are all printed up and ready to gift! I was never a big fan of Valentine's Day, but I'm getting into it this year, slowly but surely (especially the sweet treat part!). If you order before Feb 7 you can use the code FREEFIVE for $5 off your order of $25 (Plus free shipping on orders of $40 all the time!) Orders placed by Feb 7 will arrive in time for the holiday. ️ (link in profile, of course! And we have these ready to go at @occasionette, too!) 2w

girlscantell Anatomical heart tea towels are back! We printed up a batch of these favorites along with a limited run of the Valentine chocolate towels and they're both live on the website now! Link in profile and free shipping on orders of $40 or more, as always! Orders placed by Feb 7 will arrive before Valentine's Day! (And this snap is a #tbt to a few Decembers ago when the heart towels were in the @nytimes gift guide!) 2w

girlscantell Ta da! It's been a long time in the making, but we noticed today that the U.S. Cities coaster set that I designed and created exclusively for @crateandbarrel is now live on their website! I literally squealed when I first saw them there - I'd say it's a dream come true, only I honestly never in a million years dreamed I'd ever get to work with a company I admire as much as C&B. And they were such a pleasure to work with from start to finish! (Direct link to the coasters in my profile in case you want to snag a set!) #dreamclients #crateandbarrel 3w

girlscantell A peek at my Monday doodles from yesterday. My goal last year was to draw more (and I did!) and after a few hectic weeks off for the holidays I've continued this practice into this year. I rarely draw things with faces (I like architecture) but I've had kitties on my mind lately (mostly for @occasionette) so I figured I'd try drawing some little squishies for fun. 3w

girlscantell Feels like every day is #nationalhandwritingday to me! Hope you're enjoying your weekend (especially if you're snowed in like we are!). I'm working on some fun new designs and updates on some things, but in the mean time, here's one of my first (and favorite) illustrations. 3w

girlscantell Some of my very favorite drawings from last year were California inspired and @westelm_bayst spotted a few of them at @makersmarket recently! I know it's been a little quiet on the Instagram front here lately as I've been spending lots of time at the drawing board (literally and figuratively), scheming up new designs and big things for the new year. I'll share more soon, I pinky swear. 3w

girlscantell Drawing some new things and redrawing some personal favorites lately. So I have to ask - do you like this one? (aka: Would you buy your favorite person one if it was on a tea towel?) I've always thought it was sweet (all the pun, I suppose) and I've liked it on the towels when we've printed them up before, but every so often it occurs to me that it might be a strange tea towel design. So Yay or Nay! If the consensus is that you like it, we'll print some up very soon! 1mon
  •   jillannlim Great card, great print to Frame 1mon
  •   girlscantell thanks, all! we'll print them on up! @freshieandzero ha! I actually was joking with my husband earlier about labeling a few "gross one with the soggy filling", etc (your suggestion is nicer!) 1mon
  •   freshieandzero Ha! My husband would label half of them "the gross one with fruit or coconut filling". I pretty much will eat any of them. 1mon
  •   girlscantell @freshieandzero yep! I give my half eaten coconuts to my husband (after loudly proclaiming them inferior.) 1mon
  •   lisazeldin This would be cute on an apron! And I agree, it would be fun to label an "inedble" one :) 1mon
  •   lisazeldin *inedible 1mon
  •   and.morgan Definitely a yay! 1mon
  •   sweetmarie22 I love it....can I buy a download? I wanna put it on my tote 4w

girlscantell I spy my little market stand full of gifts and goods on the right in this glowy, gorgeous photo from @marketatfifthavenue! We're shipping out a fresh box of gifts to the market very soon (and I really need to find a day that I can road trip across New Jersey to pay a long overdue visit this beautiful place!) 1mon

girlscantell Working on a big wide range of custom projects already this year (and I suppose posting a late #tbt here to a few custom projects I've done in years past?) Always a treat to work with great people on interesting things. Happy weekend, everyone! #weddinginvitations #customweddinginvitation #teatowel 1mon

girlscantell This week marks 10 years since I started Girls Can Tell gift co! I had no idea at the time that it would become what it has (I probably would have chosen another name if I had... have I ever told you guys about the name here?) but it's been quite an incredible journey. As the new year begins, I've been reflecting back on what worked and what was good in 2015, and I'm pretty convinced it was the most transformative year yet for Girls Can Tell gift co. We made big strides in terms of logistics (yay!) but also creatively (yay!) and that's in no small part to the lovely, supportive feedback I receive from you guys here. So thank you! And I'm looking forward to a truly stellar 2016. xo! 1mon

girlscantell Hope your weekend is off to a great start! I wanted to share with you another talented set of makers that I feel so lucky to also call friends - the duo behind @beehivehandmade. Jim and Sandy design and produce such beautiful heirloom quality gifts - like their signature measuring spoons, elegant ornaments, timeless baby keepsakes and more (and they're also super fun to have dinner with!). They're accepting holiday orders through their shiny new website through tomorrow. #shopfriendmade 2mon

girlscantell Another one of my very favorite people is Jody from @flytrapstudios who prints up absolutely beautiful botanically inspired shirts and scarves by hand in North Carolina. Her work is not only gorgeous, but the cotton she prints on is incredibly soft and comfortable (and all her work makes great gifts!). She's also accepting holiday orders for Christmas delivery through this weekend! xo! #shopfriendmade 2mon

girlscantell Our order deadline for Christmas delivery on Girls Can Tell gift co orders is tomorrow (Friday Dec 18!) at noon (eastern)! And I also wanted to share some work here from my talented friends over the next few days (aka offer some other gift ideas if you're still working on your list!) Two of my favorite people are super talented Allison and Craig of @strawberryluna (and they're offering shipping right up until the very last minute of their site!). Also peek on over to their Instagram feed for some coupon codes for free shipping, etc today! My husband and I nabbed one of their beautiful Pittsburgh bridge sets earlier this month and I'm so excited to get it framed and hung! #shopfriendmade 2mon

girlscantell Good morning and happy Monday! I started my week early this morning with my first ever spin class at @upcyclenj and feel super ready for a productive week now (though I may be ready for a nap by lunchtime). Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend to @renegadecraft Chicago and @handmadearcade! There's still time to order online this week if you want some illustrated gifts to give (or keep!). We're shipping daily as orders come in (and you can use secret code MERRYCHI for free shipping until 12/12!) 2mon
