lit joy crate giveaway

This is our first LitJoy Crate ever, and we were beyond elated to find Sam Winston and Oliver Jeffers’ ode to literature, A Child of Books, in this month’s box!  It’s an extraordinary and meaningful work, and a tribute to the words and art in books and formative role storytelling play in all of our lives.  We’re looking forward to getting lost in its beautiful words and otherworldly typographical landscapes.  Btw, there's one other surprise not pictured here that came in this month's box.

We are partnering with LitJoy Crate for a giveaway to spread the joy and love of reading that their company champions.  The winner will receive one of their past children’s crates.  This giveaway is open to US and Canada residents only and ends on Wednesday, November 30 at 11:59 PM PST.  Head over to Instagram to enter!

little lit fest

This weekend we had our first ever #littlelitfest, an event celebrating books, reading and community.  

We made bookmarks at #littlelitfest with vintage library cards, Le Petit Elefant’s brilliant stamp and Sakura gelly roll pens (some of my favorite pens of all time).


You can't ever have enough bookplates—another thing we made at our event.  Stamp by Yellow Owl Workshop.


Makers’ chaos—always a wonderful sight to see—the mess, the creative spirit and sparks of imagination all converging to produce something new and uniquely our own.


Little hands and concentration.  Making reading journals and bookmarks.


We packed sunny yellow suitcases for our attendees.  Thank you to all the amazing people who supported our event: Lately Lily, Isabel Roxas, Scout Books, Red Cap Cards, Sakura and Zig Zag City Guides.


Yes.  Yes, it is. The afternoon was a flurry of endless talk, incredible company, book crafting, making, creating and boundless kid energy.  Looking forward to our next #littlelitfest.  Remember people, #readingisrad!
