Summer fun!

Even though the kids are home for the summer and we've been spending days at the beach or tie-dyeing tshirts, there's still plenty of writing to do! The first shot is of Betty's envelopes. Classic fine script in black ink made more fun by the pink inner envelopes! Can't wait to know what Mickey sends back. :0)
The second shot shows some custom spot work I did for Jessica which was then letterpressed into her invitations and envelopes by Ceci New York: They came out beautifully, and I was so excited to see my own writing in letterpress!
The third shot shows some menu/placecards done for Dare in fine script, gold ink. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the seashell escort cards I also wrote (which were really cool) - hopefully she can pass one along after the ceremony! (Hint, hint...)
Lastly, I have one of Nicki's gorgeous placecards (Crane's, purchased at Lion in the Sun, and done in wispy lettering, brown ink...). My poor photography skills do not do justice to the delicate blue flowers - SO pretty!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! The next weeks I have available for booking are September 27 - October 3, or October 11-17, and keep in mind I will be away on vacation from August 16-22. The wait list for 2010 bookings is also in full swing so if you are interested please let me know. Thanks, and happy planning!

Red white and blue - in honor of the Fourth!

So the first picture includes Meghan's gorgeous placecards (designed by along with her fabulous invitations...) and while they may actually be lavender (shhh....) I cheated and paired them with the red fabric for the spirit of the photo - click to enlarge. (Fine script lettering in black ink...). The second photo is for Christine - fine flourished script, alternate caps in burgundy ink to match her invitations (and the lovely hydrangeas growing in my backyard!!). A safe and happy Fourth of July to everyone!
