About Ellis

I'm a stay-at-home mom to two beautiful kiddos, and I love to dabble in design while the little ones are sleeping!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an encouraging note, Jill! What an honor that you would want to include my work in your home... I love that I got to meet you in SF! It makes seeing your sweet smile on my wall even more fun.

Hi Jill! The Neighborly Narwhal print was recently retired. Email me at hello@monicatuazon.com if you're still interested in it. Thanks :)

Ah, thank you so much, Jill! It didn't start as a chalkboard design, but I couldn't get colors in the flowers and type to work, so I threw in a chalkboard background as a last ditch effort to save the design. I'm officially a sell out ;)

Hey Jill! Thanks so much for your comment on my sail away design. I added some details to it and wondering what you think, if you have time. New version posted in the comments section http://www.minted.com/design-rating/82207 Thanks!

Hey Jill! Thanks so much for your nice comment on my big time save the date. Would you mind taking a quick peak at it and let me know if you prefer the square to the current version? Thanks!! If you don't have time, no worries at all :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/75953

Hey Jill! It was wondeful getting to meet you at the SF Meet-up - you're so lovely and funny! I only wished we had more time to chat (and maybe a quieter place too!) Keep enjoying your little kiddos and I hope to meet you again one day either over there, or maybe you can come to the NSS! Take care! Jen

Thank you Jill, you're so sweet. To be completely honest, I really have to pinch myself that it has been so well received. I'm so glad that "polka" made it through, its just so fun and festive!

Thank you for taking the time to help me out! I posted again in the forum that i managed to delete the entry somehow.. Since i agree it needed some rework that will take a liittle time - and i have a crazy week ahead, i will resubmit it when/ if i get the time. But thanks so much for the help!

Thanks, Meg! I've taken one class up in San Francisco a couple of years ago, and it was pure awesome. I have to get up there to take more soon. I appreciate your help! :)

hi Jill! Love your work! I got started in letterpress by taking a few courses. I'm sure you will be able to find a workshop in your area. Once I felt a little more educated, I looked on briarpress.org to find a press. Briarpress is the biggest and probably best online resource for letterpress. I print on a Chandler and Price Platen press, but there are lots of options. Things to consider are: studio space, what kinds of things are you printing, transporting the press, budget etc. You can email me at hellomoglea@gmail.com if you have more questions! xx-meg
