December Sponsor Thanks

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009



Can you believe it’s December already, my goodness! I just wanted to take a moment to welcome and thank our newest sponsor to Twig & Thistle. For those of you that read t&t with any regularity, you’ve probably noticed that I’m a complete and utter sucker for packaging so I’m extremely excited to share Garnish with all of you. Garnish is a one-stop-shop for all your gift packaging needs. The great part is that each item comes blank so they are completely customizable and ready for your crafty goodness!

Garnish has an Ideas page that shares creative uses and inspiration for their products and you can easily order a kit or just the individual pieces. This is a great resource to have and particularly fitting for the upcoming holidays. Enjoy! …Also, if you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, send me a note and I can fill you in on all the details.

Design that MOOOves You

Mooove over orange juice, looks like milk may have a bigger place at our breakfast table! I spotted Forest Milk on Twitter last week via @Papercrave and completely feel in love with the old fashioned bottle and the sweet little leaf tag. Forest Milk is produced from cows in Japan whom roam the forest year round and apparently the milk tastes sweeter since the cows are happier. Who doesn’t enjoy the thought of happy little cows frolicing through the forest?! Deigned by Rise Design Office

Oh, Hello Friend!

I recently stumbled upon the blog Oh, Hello Friend and have fallen head over heals for all the loveliness that can be found there. In particular, I simply adore these packaging shots that Danni, the brilliant author, has collected of her Etsy shop packaging. It makes getting that package all the more sweet!
