Halloween cards for all your ghoulish friends

The Fall & Halloween Collection is now available on Etsy! Find a not-so-scary card to send to your favorite mortal friend this fall.

Introducing three new Halloween cards:

Greetings Foolish Mortal

This card is inspired by Disney's Haunted Mansion, featuring a stately mansion on the outside that is hiding your favorite ghost host inside. Say Happy Halloween or just hello with this modern greeting card, perfect for your "living" friends.

Boo to you

This not-so-scary greeting card features a crystal ball with all your favorite Halloween sights, including a pirate skull, sorcerer's hat, poisoned apple, a bow-tie bat and much more. The artwork and lettering are both hand-drawn by me, digitized for crisp & clean printing.

Tricks for Treats

Some of you may remember this card from previous years, but Chloe (my pug) just had to come back to see if she could get some more treats. And yes, that is actually my pug begging for treats on the card! This is the only card with an inside greeting, "Happy Halloween!"

Exciting Shop Updates

All cards & art prints are now printed in house by me! I invested in a professional-quality printer and archival paper to give you the same high-quality products that you can expect from Enchanted Type. This will allow for quicker turn-around times on custom sizes or colors, and allow me to personally produce each product with love and care for you.

I have also started to replace the use of fonts with my own hand lettering to give each design a personalized, handmade touch. I hope to always create unique, original items that you won't find anywhere else, and this is one more way I can make that happen.

I hope you're as excited about the new developments for Enchanted Type as me! Stay tuned for the introduction of the Fall/Thanksgiving Collection. Right now, head over to Etsy to shop the entire Halloween collection!

Your Printable Fall Checklist

One of the reasons why I became a stationery designer is that I believe in celebrating every occasion, every holiday, every little moment. Every moment we have together is precious, something I have been reminded of recently, and I hope to help people cherish life's moments, big and small.

Fall is full of little celebrations and traditions for our family, and I wanted to share them with you with a colorful Fall Checklist.

I hope this checklist helps you celebrate today!

Welcome October + The Season of Celebrations

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. - Anne of Green Gables

Those words couldn't be more true. October is here, welcoming the beginning of the most festive time of the year. Filled with traditions, family gatherings and signs of the seasons shifting everywhere you turn. While there are many little reasons to celebrate throughout the year, the next three months give us extra reasons to throw up the banners and spread cheer.

As the evenings get cooler and you start spending more time indoors, it's the perfect time to hunker down and dive into that new hobby you've been meaning to try. Watercolor, sewing, bookbinding... let your imagination run wild and get inspired!

I just returned home from a rejuvenating trip to New England (the perfect place to welcome fall). Being surrounded by trees of every color, with the occasional gaggle of wild turkeys running across the street, brought a level of calm and peace that is easily lost in the day to day hustle. I spent a lot of time with my grandma, trying to absorb as much wisdom as I could about our family tradition of quilting. Now that I have a working sewing machine, fall feels like the perfect time to dive into a crash course in quilting.

How are you celebrating the arrival of October? Any new hobbies you are planning to try out?
