For those hard to please folks like us, you’ll totally get me on this. We are our toughest critic. It’s a rare moment for us to be 100% happy with our projects. There’s always some little thing that we feel should have been tweaked this way or that. A color is a little off or maybe one tiny star is in the wrong spot. We’re talking epic disaster type of stuff, y’all. At least, sometimes it feels that way to us. You get me, right?
But miracles do happen because we couldn’t be happier with this little nugget. This marks our first holiday catalog ever. It’s something we’ve wanted to do for years and we finally decided this was the year we were going to make it happen.
Planning started last spring. Curating and collecting the goods. We wanted it to be more than just a regular mailer. We wanted it to be inspirational, to have quotes, lyrics, recipes, imagery that you would want to tear out and put on your bulletin board.
We wanted to offer specialty items for sale as well. We brainstormed and collaborated. Richard Schmidt, local (insanely talented) artisan and jewelry maker, designed a special JG cuff for the catalog and we decided everyone needs a longhorn for Christmas! So, both made the cut. That’s right, y’all. REAL REGISTERED TEXAS LONGHORNS.
The photoshoot happened in mid August. On the world’s hottest few days known to womankind. Click here to read more on those moments when we were questioning our life choices.
Also, did i mention that Archie was pregnant here? And not feeling too great. And it was 5 million degrees. And we dressed her up in a full length wool coat with faux fur? NBD.
In the end, the stars aligned, we didn’t look too sweaty, the longhorns posed, and we couldn’t be more proud of our first ever holiday catalog! And apparently y’all love it too because you are showing us all kinds of LOVE and we SO appreciate it!!! Thank you so much for all of your positive feedback!
Also, because we’re classy … the back cover scored a lyric from Whitesnake. There are some things we love intensely that we cannot deny … dirt roads, disco ball, and big hair bands of the 1980’s.

My sweet Annie and I could not be more happier to receive your beautiful catalog. I swear my daughter is your spirit animal. Her sense of style and authenticity is right there with all you lovelies. Keep them coming!
I love the catalogue so much. It’s a beautiful keepsake. Of course, I had to order a few things, that I didn’t know I had to have ,until I gazed upon them.
Thank you for the treasure hunt through a magical wonderland.
It was a very happy day yesterday when I dug into my mailbox and discovered this most wonderful time of the year nugget from JGHQ!! Did I say how much I loved every page??❤️❤️
