hello there.

Well, whaddya wanna know?  Here's the plain and simple truth:  My name is Rebekah Tennis and I love design.  I love paper, the way it feels, its weight and texture.  I love extra special touches on little things: homemade tags on gift-wrap, old stamps on an envelope, and twine on nearly everything.

My husband, business partner and all-around solid rock Matt would probably tell you that he likes tools - lots of 'em, finding the perfect way to do something, taking things apart, and precision in everything. 

So you might as well have guessed by now... we are the perfect match for an old letterpress studio. Together we farm rice and have three adorable and active boys ages 5 and under.  This keeps us fairly busy, but whenever we have a spare moment, we crank up our 102 year old Chandler and Price platen press and pull some prints, or whip out a card line on the Heidelberg. 

There's more, oh yes, there IS more - but that's what this blog is for.  Take a look around, get to know us, our great town of Chico, California and our beautiful presses.

daytrippin’: table mountain & the wildlife sanctuary

It’s Spring! Hip Hip Hooray! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. We managed to pull off a weekend full of some of the best-of-the-best things that Chico has to offer for the season, and it was dee-lightful. So delightful I thought I’d share it with you. Remember this day-trippin’ post from a couple […]

valentine’s night in.

Happy Valentine’s day, friends! More importantly, happy Friday! Do you have big plans for the night/weekend? Matt and I love to eschew traditional Valentine responsibilities (no big dinner out, no expectations of a romantic gift, simple fresh grower’s bunch of grocery store flowers, etc). We skip the pressure, the baby sitter $$$ (if your sitter […]

wrapping it up neatly { 2013 }

I loved 2013. It was a crazy but fantastic year with my boys, my business and my community. The blog? Suffered a bit through all the crazies. Some poor months got no posts at all (I’m looking at you, April and June), others were crammed with catch-up and happenings and make-overs galore. I just wanted […]

{ happy long weekend }

It’s the last weekend of summer! It’s been a while since I’ve done a “happy weekend” post (a couple years actually), but I thought I’d pop in this Friday to send you off with a few well-wishes. Here’s hoping you find time to… …Eat fantastic summery food (outside). Go for that kayak… …or bike ride. […]

{ firsts & lasts. }

We snuck away last week for a bit to the family cabin to enjoy the last true week of our summer. Hence the radio silence. Because this morning, at 7 am, bright and early, this little guy started his very first day of school: Yes. Kindergarten is here. I’m not one of those super sentimental […]
