holiday sale glory

What a fun weekend. Yesterday’s sale in the east village was fantastic, and I had a chance to meet loads of great designers and artists. We vendors had to set-up at 8:30am, and I forgot my camera in the confusing haze of the early morning hours. Rats. But one of the highlights of my day was meeting Portland, Oregon artist Amy Ruppel, what a treat.

And after exchanging ornaments in international christmas ornament swap, Vancouver artist Cindy Jaswal and I decided to trade some of our greeting cards. These are just beautiful…thanks so much cindy.

Today I’m preparing a plate for two custom projects due mid-month, and a few cards to print for my holiday mailer. I’m also gathering items to offer at the Dec. 10th Craft Fair at Divine Studio (check out this amazing space). I’ll have a variety of gift tags and greeting cards for sale, if you’re in NYC this Sunday stop on by, 10am-5pm. The line-up of designers is spectacular, I’m really honored to be included.

day of deliverance

After popping across the bridge to drop off a few custom stationery orders this morning, I stopped off at the post office to pick up a bunch of priority stamps and envelopes. I’m hoping to send off all existing bookplates orders for Design*Sponge Shop today. Lots more printing to do before the end of the week…

winter storm

What an appropriate project to be printing this weekend… This corporate holiday card, which was designed by the company art director, has the perfect amount of detail for letterpress. I have mentioned before how much I love printing artwork created by clients, this job is no exception.
