Do babies count? πŸ˜‰ p.s. Thank you so much to everyone who liked and commented on the last post. You guys are the best! It really makes my ❀️ feel ✨. #sycamorequotes

Hi, I'm Eva and I've watched every single episode of Seinfeld. πŸ€“ I went to school to become an art professor, but graduated right when the economy tanked and universities initiated hiring freezes 😳 so instead started my own letterpress stationery business. My partner in business and in marriage is @kirk_sycamore. We have two adorable little twerps--Ingrid and Lars. πŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌTogether, we were lucky enough to spend last fall in Europe jump-starting Sycamore's new direction as a creative studio and magazine. (But don't worry! We still got πŸ’Œ!) .
Sometimes it's a roller coaster, things don't turn out like we'd planned, and our friends, family, and--let's be honest-- even WE think we're crazy. But Kirk and I love what we do and are grateful to be doing it. Our goal is to capture creative stories from around the 🌎 and share them with you. There are so many inspiring artists, designers, and places out there and so many people looking to connect with them and to be inspired! ✨

I'd love to know who you are, how you landed here, and if there are any creative people or places you think we should look into featuring! Please spill the beans in a comment below. πŸ‘‡πŸ˜˜

Fun fact: The color green represents nature, health, growth, harmony, money, and hope. It has the effect of making people feel more relaxed and rejuvenated. I've been wanting to decorate my bedroom all in green for awhile... mainly because I like the color, but now that I'm thinking about color psychology, it seems like the perfect color for the room of a frequent insomniac. πŸ˜‰ πŸ’šβ€’β€’β€’ photo via @lisasaysgah

I just read that Stephen King's first novel was rejected by 30 publishers. 30! Lucille Ball was regarded as a failed movie actress before "I Love Lucy". And Charles Schultz (creator of "Peanuts") had every single cartoon he submitted to his school yearbook rejected, then was turned down when he applied to work for Disney. β€’β€’β€’ #sycamorequotes #quoteoftheday #failure #winstonchurchill #stephenking #lucilleball #charlesschultz

When I was 18/19 years old, Georgia O'Keefe became one of my favorite artists. I especially loved her cropped-in paintings of flowers, and made similar ones in homage, although I had absolutely NO idea what hers were referencing. πŸ˜‚She's still a favorite--we based the character in the 2014 short film we made with some friends on the idea of her. I've heard the exhibition at the @brooklynmuseum featuring her wardrobe is amazing and I love that she designed every element of her life. (Although, it makes me feel like mine falls a bit short--something I know I shouldn't let get to me.) Someday, I hope I'm able to visit her home in New Mexico. Have you been? Are you a fan? If so, I'd love to hear about it! β€’β€’β€’ #sycamorelovesart #whoruntheworld #georgiaokeefe #womenartists #art

This is my mother. She grew up to be such an amazing woman. From an early age, she taught me the importance of education, independence, creativity, hard work, and faith--lessons that have been such a blessing in my life. Thank you Mom--I love you! β€’β€’β€’ #mothersday #1960s #happymothersday #thatsdarling #mom

Stationery Tip: The National Stationery Show is the only trade show focused mainly on paper goods. (Although quite a few stationery companies have started doing the gift shows in recent years.) It takes place every May at the Javits Center in NYC. (Coming up soon! Good luck to everyone who's going!) β€’β€’β€’ Find our #SycamoreClasses on @atly. #nss2017 #nationalstationeryshow #paperlove #stationery

Crushing on @sketchlondon right now. @davidshrigley's art is so good--he's been a favorite of mine for a long time. And @indiamahdavi's pink on pink design is amazing--a real trendsetter, don't you think?
