Anyone who regularly reads this blog knows that I am a big Ink + Wit fan, and in keeping with my goal to share my favorites with you for  ‘12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping’ I am so happy to share Ink + Wit with you today.

Ink + Wit is the line of paper goods, art & home goods from Tara Hogan.  You can choose from letterpressed, silkscreened or offset printed goods all featuring Tara’s wonderful designs and illustrations. I’m personally enamored with Tara’s prints and I own many. I have a complete set of her Aesop’s Fables series (it’s an older series, but you can still see the Tortoise and Hare here) and I also own the Pommebirds among others.

Whether you have an art lover (like me) or paper fiend on your holiday list, you can’t go wrong with Ink + Wit!  Good gift ideas include: the 2009 Letterpress Calendar (a collaboration with Pistachio Press), the Owls or Utensils Tea Towels or Wall Hangings, Everything Counts poster & more.

You can shop at for Ink +Wit goods at inkandwit.com and in the Etsy shop.

Before you head off to Ink + Wit though,  make sure to enter to win one of Tara’s A-Z Animal Posters and an Elephant Postcard set.

To win: Leave a comment on this post with your favorite Ink + Wit goodies.  Multiple entries will be accepted, but you must leave a separate comment for each entry. This will increase your chances for winning!

I will choose one random commenter to win the prize. This contest will end Wednesday, December 3rd at 5pm EST.

    I’m loving the Birch Trees Mini Notes set – I have to admit though, they’re so cute I wouldn’t be able to use them to write an everyday to-do list. It would have to be something special, like a thank you note to a friend or a love note.
