So yeah, it’s the big launch day here at 3191 Miles Apart headquarters in Maine. Stephanie is here, Evan (our lovely creative assistant) is here and all week we have been preparing our shop for you!

Above you see our new 3191 Quarterly. We are on Issue No. 7 and still loving making books for you. This issue feels full of energy to me. The colors are so bright! I particularly like how you see Spring sitting next to Winter in the pages. It’s such a nice combination.

Over the years we have gotten requests for our diptych prints so we decided now was the time to pick a few of our favorites and offer them up in our 3191 Collection. We have one print from our Year of Mornings project + one from our Year of Evenings project + one from our newest Year of Sundays project. The prints themselves are very rich in color. We are super pleased with these guys.

And then there are our new Collections … so near and dear to our hearts. There’s Found + MAV + SCB.

Above you can see one of the indigo necklaces from SCB’s Collection. She asked me which one I wanted and I knew right away (even though I am really also very into her pinecones). I love this piece and plan to wear it more as a bracelet myself because it’s incredible to really be able to see all of those braided strands right there around your wrist. And I love the chunky section with those leather pieces sewn on. The leather feels so soft and the dyed yarn is gorgeous! I think I’ll keep my lipsticks in the bag the necklace came in as well.

Thanks for celebrating our big launch with us. We are humbled by your interest and support and we are fiercely proud to bring you our simple creations. Oh and don’t forget: this weekend our Q7 is just $24 if you use the code CHEERS upon check out. Sale runs through midnight EST on Monday, May 21, 2012.

Phew! Busy week here at 3191 HQ. I am so glad I was able to travel the 3191 miles and be a part of it (I always have to go say hello to MAV’s famous blue table).

We are so excited to release 3191 Quarterly, Issue No. 7 today. In our latest offering, you can follow us on our travels, visit our homes, make baskets, and snack on our favorite sandwiches and maple-sweetened goodies.

Along with the release of 3191Q, we have added some vivid prints of our diptychs to the 3191 collection. You’ll find one from each of our “year of” projects—Mornings, Evenings, and Sundays.

Mailing list subscribers got the tip when our collections went live, and our Found Collection is moving quickly. MAV and I had so much fun with our amazing assistant Evan finding, researching and photographing these items. Hardest part was letting things go!

I’ve got my V. No. 2 on today, and I already consider it a wardrobe staple. I am wearing the size 2 tucked in with sleeves rolled a bit for Maine’s spring sunshine. Love it.

My Smock No. 1 is all queued up for tomorrow (I didn’t really need to pack much for this trip!). Every item in MAV’s collection is so incredibly thoughtful and such an accurate representation of her commitment to beautiful and well-made goods. It has been a real treat to see everything in person.

We have big smiles on our faces here and are so grateful to everyone, browsers and buyers alike, for visiting by3191. As an extra treat, Q7 is just $24 until Monday at midnight EST (use the discount code CHEERS at checkout).
