Wish Gift List: mackin ink.

i always sort of tilt my head to one side and scrunch up my nose when i hear the saying actions speak louder than words. do they really? because, for me at least, words absolutely scream. which is why i like to give and get words as gifts. not because i like to yell. but because words stick to my heart way more than a grand gesture.

let’s start with a kiss for my love. because it always begins with a kiss, yes?


and once it begins, it would be lovely to keep it going. this’d be a pretty genius reminder for those who always seem to land on the naughty list…
speaking of naughty, this is perfect for my friend whose pub behavior leaves me covering my pink cheeks and whispering ohmygod. no she isn’t. the splits? really? ohmygod.
this is for my friend in jordan who dreams of peace, in both great and small measure…
and this is for my friend headed to mali in a few months, whose dreams for the world are a bit more small, but no less great…

this to remind my girlies three of who they are…

and this because it’s exactly how i wish they sail through life. plus i hope they reference obscure words in ordinary conversations. pronounced correctly. i will wear it until their hands grow. i am selfless like that.

this is for my girl whose everyday love is more perfect than any dream she could ever dream. plus it’s ruffly. and everyone loves a good ruffle.

plus this print to remind her that nothing’s perfect all of the time. plus it’s from t.ruffles. and i’m hoping that everyone loves a good t.ruffle.
this for my friend who needs to be reassured that she’s my favorite. even beyond turquoise or sour patch kids…

and this to remind us all that our most favorite thing of all is love. the easiest and most difficult gift to give, yes?

kelly? you know how i feel about you, so i won’t even tell you in front of all of your other lovelies. but i will send you two of my most favorite words for always always giving us your best: thank and you. by the way? my other two most favorite words together? kiss and me. good thing you’re in oklahoma.

one more thing. i’m karey m. and i spill words at mackin ink. i am also a t.ruffle girl. please visit when you have a moment.

    oh. i want it all.

    also…that last coulson macleod print came straight from stashstudios.typepad.com…i had kirtsy'd his earlier work ages ago, but she ever so kindly reintroduced his new stuff to us all, which i LOVE LOVE LOVE and covet like a fiend. her site is genius for finds like this.

    anyway. thanks for letting me hang out here! and xoxo.
