BIG, BIG, BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!! AMPERSAND AT TARGET!!

We love Target!! We do! So when we found out that our line of planners and calendars was chosen to be placed in EVERY. SINGLE. TARGET. STORE, We felt like it was a little hard to believe. But just as of 10:30pm last night when we went on a Target run to pick up some supplies for the studio, it all became super real. We both stopped in our tracks as we spotted our collection on the shelves! So here we are today, SO EXCITED (and a little more polished than our live instagram video-yikes) to share this collection with you!!!

Our partner, Blue Sky, produces the best quality agendas and calendars, so we cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on these. The collection features painterly brushstrokes, hand drawn lettering, and hand stamped patterns in a variety of bold black and white and pops of fun color!! We have a couple of 8.5 x 11 formats, a couple of fabric-covered 5 x 8s and a couple of monthly desk pads (22" x 17"), so hopefully, we have all of your 2017 planning needs met! We keep the pages clean and simple so there is plenty of open space to fill in your glorious plans for 2017!!

Follow along on instagram (@AmpersandStudio) and we'll be sharing more detailed shots and walking you through the inside pages and one of our favorite features!!!

As professional pattern designers and illustrators, nothing could be more fulfilling that getting to see your vision come to life on truly well-made products for a really cool company. Seriously, it's everything to us!! So when the Land of Nod Spring 2016 catalog landed in our mailboxes, we pretty much freaked out...calling each other immediately to talk as we flipped through the pages. Designing products for kids is SO. MUCH. FUN. And The Land of Nod is simply just one really cool company to work for. For this spring collection, we got to design everything from baby blankets, to rugs, to wall hooks and even a teepee! We rounded up most of the products right here for you with direct links to the Nod site but you can always just search "Ampersand Design Studio" in their search field to find all current products by us. And, we can't go without saying, Nod works with some of the most talented designers in the game, so make sure you check out ALL of the latest including other designer partnerships. You are sure to be blown away!

We had the best time designing bedding with our own boys in mind (see the Creature Comfort collection above!). And then, we got to design the girly bedding of our 80s childhood dreams (see the Rainbow Charm collection below) including yet another rainbow pillow. All of you who know us, know that nothing could be more fitting!

If you can, take the chance to peruse all of the images on the Nod website, check out the close-ups of each product so you can really see the quality of craftsmanship in each piece. Notice the way the quilts are pieced together. Check out the artistic stitching on the word pillows. Zoom in to see details of the rug (and you can even get a color sample)! All these bits of attention to detail make all the difference! Hope you love our latest creations for Nod! If you get anything for yourself, please share a photo with us and use #AmpersandforNod! You will make our day!

Can you believe it's already time to start thinking about the winter holidays? Sure, it's still a little early, but we can't wait any longer to share our new Christmas designs for The Land of Nod!!! We get so excited thinking that these Christmas pieces could become a part of your collection of keepsakes that come out year after year and make you smile. We designed lots of fun ornaments! We love that you can personalize your tree, gifts or stockings with little wooden versions of your family members (including pets) using the Christmas Company Ornaments. Then, the possibilities are endless with the Color Dipped Letter Ornaments... from doing initials on stockings to spelling favorite words! We're a little excited about those if you can't tell!  Then, we were so thrilled to design an advent calendar, tree skirt, stockings and the coziest flannel bedding that works for adults AND kids! So, we sure hope you find something that will add a little more fun to your holidays! We had a total blast designing it, and as always love designing for The Land of Nod Dream come true!
