Soul Pancake + The Fatherhood Project

Corbyn Tyson is an incredible friend and mentor to me. I’ve done some of my best work under his art direction, had some of my most favorite creative moments on his watch, and called him (and his awesome and discerning wife) whenever I’ve felt like quitting (Corbyn, anticipate a call tomorrow). He has made me so, so much better at what I do. When he’s not talking me off of creative cliffs, or running his agency Frank & Harvey, or directing super cool videos, he’s spending time with his family and being a dad (note: an awesome dad). And this role has led Corbyn to his latest project (with Soul Pancake!)

We have all been affected by our dads. And really, our relationship with our fathers ripples on to so much of our lives. I’m so blessed to have an amazing relationship with my dad, and I’ve been thinking about this even more now that we have a little one we get the privilege of parenting. In the pilot episode of The Fatherhood Project, Corbyn begins a dialogue about fatherhood… what did our dads do right? What maybe not as right? And how does that affect us and the way we parent?

Please, I would LOVE it if you would take the time to watch this video and to SHARE IT!!! Let’s keep the conversation going!!! (And if you DO share it, I’ll give you the Heritage download for free. Don’t be a cheater, though. You MUST like, watch, and share!!! Coupon code: FATHERHOODPROJECT, expires 12/15/13).

Have fun prepping your turkeys and tofurkeys! I’ll be in touch soon! xo, l

LL & Mocha Club

Hello! Needless to say, it’s crazy over here getting ready for Christmas! Eeeeeeee!!!! (Is that a word? No. It’s a sound. Go with it).
There are a hundred things I want to blog about, but for now I want to make sure I don’t miss the opportunity to share with you a recent collaboration that’s super close to my heart: Mocha Club.

Have you ever thought you didn’t have enough money to make a difference? Mocha Club is a web-based community of people giving up the cost of a few mochas a month to fund development projects in Africa in the areas of Clean Water, Education, Economic Freedom, Orphan Care, and Healthcare. Enticing, right? (You can read more about Mocha Club & their mission here.)

Mocha Club has an online store where you can also purchase products that help raise money towards their mission. I’m thrilled to have been able to partner with them to create a few designs around their I Need Africa manifesto, available in the store now!

I would – we would – be so honored if you would check out these prints & mugs, and if they speak to you, please consider purchasing a few as gifts for friends or loved ones this holiday season. (Or for yourself!) I’m grateful to get to be a tiny part of this huge & noble effort. (Click here to check out the Lindsay Letters goodies available at the Mocha Club Store!)

    Lynet Witty - Hi Lindsey!
    New follower here, and can I just say all your products are adorable! I want to be busy like you! I was trying to follow you all over the web, but your buttons on the left ‘no workie’ :(
    I hope to follow this blog and get inspired through your beautiful penmanship. I do wonder, though, do you hand-write everything an scan stuff in or do you do it all digitally? I’ve tried both and I feel a lot more comfortable with pen / paper than a tablet :) but I guess it’s just me.


    PS have some great holidays!ReplyCancel

      lindsay - Thanks so much, Lynet! All fixed!!! (And yes, I’ve tried a tablet, and I cannot get the hang of it to save my life. Old school pen and paper for me, too!) xoReplyCancel

Cutting Boards at Lulu & Georgia

Happy Day! We started our day out at the pumpkin patch, and it was the first time since we got to Arizona that I felt a tiny bit settled in. It was really nice. :o) I’m so pumped to share with you today a fun little project I worked on: These cute Mr & Mrs cutting boards for the Lulu & Georgia Gift Shop!

I am a new fan of Lulu & Georgia (they have the best rugs, per my friend Laura), and so I jumped at the chance when they asked me to do the custom calligraphy for their new cutting boards. Aren’t they cool?

What a fun anniversary or wedding gift. I especially love the round one. I think it would make an awesome cheese platter, too. (What do you say, Ahndea? Throw some brie & jam on that bad boy and come on over!!!)

You can purchase the cutting boards right here: Rectangle & Round, and be sure to check out the other awesome finds in the gift shop, too. Enjoy your weekend!! xo, L
