We are currently hiring a studio assistant! This is a part-time position at our farmhouse letterpress studio in Audubon, Iowa.

Happy Holidays everyone! This is a peak at the holiday cards we sent to our lovely clients and stores this holiday season. The cards were hand-lettered and letterpress printed in neon inks. The envelopes were edged in a bright neon red, and Alissa at Feast Calligraphy did an amazing job with envelope calligraphy.
I also just want to thank everyone who reads this little blog for their loving support this past year. It’s your comments of encouragement that make every day a good one at Moglea.
Another birth announcement to share! This was hand-lettered in white, light blue and cobalt and finished with a sweet little felt bowtie for baby Jackson. We even did some custom thank you cards for little Jackson, which I think is a great idea to include with every birth announcement. We know now from experience, as parents have lots of friends and family to thank after your little one(s) arrive.
These are just some birth announcements that I completed recently for baby Stella. Stella’s family hosted a “Stellabration” for her so that everyone could bring her gifts and meet her, so I designed a floral party invite to match her announcement. This was an extremely fun suite to produce, and was complete with two of my favorite colors, coral and mint.
I don’t usually post much personal news here, but I wanted to share our new additions with you: Shepard & Ev. We LOVE them! (Picture compliments of Libby Asay Studio.)
Here is part of my holiday collection for Minted this year. (Lots of hand-lettering and joy-filled illustration goodness!) My Line & Dot design was hand selected by Courtney Eliseoas a judges pick. One of my favorite designs this year is Red Abstract, which is based from a abstract watercolor composition.
Our blog will be a bit quiet for a few weeks…because we travel today to bring home two wonderful children from Africa!! You may remember the journals I made for Ev & Shepard. We get to meet them tomorrow! God is so good.
I’m happy to share a recent birth announcement I made for Wolf Finley. The Massars gave me a color palette to start with (mint and neon yellow), and I got to take it from there. We stitched little Wolf flags onto each letterpressed announcement with neon thread and paired them with kraft envelopes. So fun.
More Stationery = Happiness

A couple of my favorite things right now: 1. John James Audubon prints. I’m thinking they will be a perfect compliment to some bold Banquet Workshop prints that I want to purchase for our living room. 2. Brightly edged and ombre envelope flaps. I’ll be adding these envelope styles to the 2013 line. I’ve been having a blast working on next years collection.
Just a little watercolor doodling / procrastination. (p.s. I am determined to have long hair. I’ve never had it…so it’s about time right?)
It’s amazing what light can do!! (These are pics of our dining room after my husband installed a few windows.) We are towards the end of a huge remodel of the whole bottom level of our farmhouse. Someday when I get the space properly decorated, I’ll show before and after pics. It’s made quite the transformation.
I’m also beginning to acquire more plants for the house…including these succulents that I purchased from here. So pretty!
Our Happy Birthday Loop card is now available in Anthropologie stores near you! It’s printed on 4 ply museum board with brightly painted edges in three happy color combinations.
I’ve finally updated the store list with all of our new stores! We’re are blessed and honored to have Moglea cards across the country (and Canada).
