Get two and keep one for yourself! They make great desk decorations too!

Each Incredible “Pink Tone” Pink Toe Press Color Puzzle Cube Is hand-adorned with custom color swatch stickers. Each color was created and named by Yours Truly. While inspired by popular paint chips, these colors do not correspond to any paints, dyes, or existing colors available on the market. Each color was custom made by me for these Puzzle Cubes (Some colors are available as buttons in the Pink Toe Press Etsy Shop). Each color was printed onto a sticker which was hand-placed on each square of each cube. Puzzle cube bases come pre-assembled and are made from a hard plastic.

Tired of having your nose stuck in a book (ouch!)? Sick of playing games with angry avifauna? The Incredible “Pink Tone” Pink Toe Press Color Puzzle Cube is your solution. Small enough to toss into a book-bag or carry-on bag, this fun activity requires no batteries, no headphones, and you don’t need a 20-page rule book to play. Just twist and turn and have fun!

NEW Birthday Cards Added to my Etsy Shop

As I was looking for a birthday card for a friend’s youngster the other day, I found myself at a crossroad between “girly” and “just-for-boys”. It would seem that most children’s birthday cards are highly gendered and pretty sarcastic. I wanted a nice card for a nice little girl who isn’t into princesses or shopping yet. There were none to be found.

I took it upon myself to make a set of three birthday cards for boys or girls (and unisex!) that are cute but not overly-cute; boyish but not brutish. I mentioned them in an earlier post…

It’s no secret that I like cats. I designed these cards to have a retro feel with the bold, iconic illustrations of boy cats and girl cats. I gave each card a hand-lettered message that says “Birthday Girl or Boy” and “Happy Birthday” for a gender neutral option. I am very pleased with how they turned out.

Wish “Happy Birthday” to a boy or a girl (or adult!)

*Also available in lime green and other colors!

Blues and greens for the Birthday Boy

Pink or red for the Birthday Girl

I styled the design after 1950’s-style cartoon characters with the simple eyes, bold lines, and bright colors. Each cat is holding a cupcake in one hand and a present in the other. The hand-lettering gives the card an informal feel that lends itself well to children’s cards. They are, however, not overtly childish, so you could send one to an adult too!

They are available in my Etsy Shop and every card is printed by me and hand scored. Each comes with its own envelope. Other custom-colors can be created upon request.
