Some other interesting tidbits....

When it rains it pours! No post for months, and now two in one day... The first two posts were invitations done in boxes for Katherine - a challenge to work with, but they came out great in the end. (Alt. caps lettering, and a warm brown ink..) The middle shot was from the class I taught just after Thanksgiving! A very DIY bride and her bridesmaids got together with some snacks, some wine, some ink and some parchment to learn the basics of how to address her own invitations. We had a great time! And finally, the menu I did for my cousin's in law's restaurant in the city (where, incidentally, the food is DIVINE if you should happen to be in the neighborhood...). It's been a very busy few months with more than a few unusual projects thrown into the mix! I still have a few weeks available in February and march if anyone is interested in booking. All the best to you all in the new year!!

Happy New Year!!

Finally - a chance to breathe and catch up a little bit! Here are just a few shots of some things I've been working on - the first was for Lauren - where we matched the pink lettering to the pink ribbon she was using to tie her invitations together. (In fine flourished script, alt. caps...) The next two shots were for a first birthday party for Lindsey's son - I ADORE the idea of using the snowflakes in place of the letter 'o'. Too cute. (The rest of the lettering is wispy, in royal blue...) The final shot in this post were for Edwina' sescort cards in the most popular color of the year! (And I believe her very talented fiance - now husband - made the elegant holders!!)
