A dedication to "Jane"

Megan Merry

Last weekend my husband and I said goodbye to the "Jane" in Megan + Jane. It's hard to put into words just how much she meant, but I do want to share what a beautiful creature she was—both inside and out.

Our English setter's name was "Daphne", whom we playfully/lovingly called "Daphne Jane".

My favorite days were those rare (and treasured) Saturdays without any real plans. We'd start our mornings with coffee, NPR, me doing art and my husband relaxing on the couch. Then Daphne Jane would grab a toy and set it beside one of us, prompting a game of fetch. Soon all three of us would be running around the house, tossing her toy around and playing. Those mornings I felt inspired, refreshed and happy—surrounded by my people, doing the things I love.

Thus, I thought it appropriate to name my stationery line "Megan + Jane" since the purpose is to fuse together my love for art, snail mail and to remember to make it a balance of work and play. Something Daphne Jane taught me to make space for.

She was supportive, a great listener and when I needed to sort something out—we'd go for a long walk until everything made sense (or at least more sense than it did).

She taught me to be unapologetic-ally me. To relax and enjoy the moment, and most of all, to do what I'm passionate about—without guilt.

She was very much loved by both my husband and me, and never failed at bringing joy into our daily lives. We appreciated every moment with her. She passed away at home, with both of us by her side. We laid next to her, saying goodbye and letting her know how much she meant to us.

I never realized how much you could love a dog until I met her. And I never realized just how much I loved her until she was gone.

Card Spotlight: More Than You'll Ever Know

Jumping into the new year means we’re most likely taking a moment to appreciate 2015, and jotting down a few thoughts for how we can make 2016 just a little bit better. Might I suggest something? What about sending random cards to the people you care about the most? It’s something I do from time-to-time and have learned that 1) it makes me feel good and 2) I sometimes get a follow-up call or quick note from them saying how much it made their day… which, in return, makes my day. ♡

This card, More Than You’ll Ever Know, is one that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Just Because, and the list goes on.

I really love the classic look of gold and navy, but know most people don’t have gold or white pens on-hand. So I searched high and low for a quality paper stock that would work for this card and found this duplex card stock, which means it’s navy on one side and white on the other. This card is screen printed on the navy side with a flat gold metallic ink. The interior is white, and left blank for you to write a personal note.

Make this year a year where you surprise the ones you love with a hand-written note. You’ll feel good making someone’s day, and what’s not to love about that?
