THEY DRAW AND THEY TRAVEL – Book Giveaway

This holiday season, we have been celebrating and sharing modern traditions. We had the pleasure of collaborating with Salli Swindell and Nate Padavick, a brother/sister design and illustration team known as Studio SSS. Sally and Nate shared a cranberry sauce recipe from their website, They Draw & Cook and we were hooked! Salli and Nate also have another amazing website, They Draw & Travel, home to the largest online collection of illustrated recipes and maps by artists from around the world. They kindly offered to share their two travel inspired books with Tea, Make Map Art by Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell and their first published book, MAAAPS by Aunyarat Watanbe.

Salli and Nate’s book, Make Map Art, came about after they attended a stationary show in New York where they met an editor at Chronicle Books. Their love for travel and storytelling mixed with their wonderful illustrations creates a great informative activity book for kids and adults alike.  “The book is designed as a project portfolio kit to help anyone who is interested in exploring mapmaking.” says Salli. “Included in the portfolio is a guide book with ideas, definitions, prompts and examples along with templates and pages of icons. There are all kinds of different maps to make, everything from mapping your favorite city to creating a map of your mind!” Make Map Art is a great interactive book. Let your little citizens explore and create their own maps — even share them on the They Draw & Travel site! 

Wildlife Holiday Cards Giveaway

When I first started designing for merchandise, I realized how many products had cute animal designs but weren’t doing anything to spread awareness or give back. Around the same time, I was working with a handful of non-profits who wanted to raise funds by selling products, but they didn’t have the funds or knowledge to design them. (Usually they would just sell a t-shirt with their logo on it, which would only appeal to the audience they already had.) I wanted to bridge that gap by designing product that would appeal to popular markets, but would spread awareness and raise funds for these causes, too. So for the holidays I created four greeting cards for some of my favorite wildlife organizations.

Camille Styles Book Giveaway

“Let’s be honest, some of our most important holiday traditions revolve around food, and it just wouldn’t feel the same without certain dishes on the table. I truly believe that when food is prepared and served with love, it can create connections like almost nothing else can.” 

Long time fans of CamilleStyles.com, our hearts overflowed with joy when we first learned Camille’s family would soon be a family of 3 a little more than a year ago. Camille brings such beauty and grace to every event she plans — we knew she would have she would have a beautiful holiday tradition to share with us! As we kick off our seven week long celebration of family traditions, we also celebrate Camille Styles and her new book, Camille Styles Entertaining.

Camille Styles Entertaining

Organized by season, each section starts with tips on how to embrace and connect with all of the senses – including texture, scent, color, and taste. Each party featured draws inspiration from Camille’s own life, celebrating major holidays, milestones, and everyday occasions through each season.

Camille Styles Entertaining

We love the section around picnics, complete with kid-friendly activities and fool-proof recipes!  With the holiday season quickly approaching, don’t miss the holiday traditions section to help you through cookie exchanges and cozy game nights.
