When we began our mailing list back in 2004, we had a small following. As we’ve grown as a company over the years, we’ve also seen our followers grow. We want to offer you the most up-to-date information, and that often requires a little trial and error.

Recently, we added some new mailing list options. If you are signed up for our “Get It All” mailing list, you will now receive the Daily Journal.

We hope that you will enjoy our daily Journal posts in your inbox, and join our ongoing conversations about sustainable design, recipes, DIY projects, art, travel, and fashion.
