I used the wallpaper found on this trip to my favorite thrift shop to make a stationery set for a friend. The set includes 4 folded notes with lined envelopes, 4 flat notes with lined envelopes and 4 gift tags.
A couple small treasures from a quick stop at my favorite thrift shop - a vintage roll of wallpaper and a pair of turquoise earrings. I found an incredible bracelet but the price tag was even more incredible ($325....really?!?). So that one stayed behind.
I was surprised (and delighted!) to see something that I designed on the pages of Martha this month. The notecard with the yellow leaf is one of a series of four botanical designs that I made while working at Oblation Papers & Press. That project was one of my favorites.
Lynn just posted about the prizes for liam's giveaway.
My jaw dropped as I scrolled through the list. It was nearly impossible
to decide which images to post but here are a few favorites (plus my contribution). In reality I
should have just posted the whole lot - all of the prizes look so good!
Go donate so you have a chance to win.
Here is a little peak at the invites I designed for my brother's wedding. It should be a fun day - a neighborhood solstice parade with sea creature costumes, boating to the reception and a taco truck are a few of the things that I'm looking forward to.
The invites were letterpress printed by the ever-so-talented studio olivine.
Well, I have a busy couple of weeks ahead of me. I'm hoping to work, work, work up until the Sunday Best Sale in Portland, OR on November 28th and 29th. I can't believe how soon it's coming up!
Here is the mailer for the sale. If you click on the image you'll be able to read all of the text. Also, there is a lot more info on the blog if you're curious - including a bunch of vendor profiles (which is personally my favorite part to read).
There is a really great group of artist participating this year. To be honest I'm just as excited to shop as I am to sell. I plan to make a big dent in my holiday gift list.
I hope you'll drop by if you're in Portland that weekend.
