This weekend I printed some pretty birthday party invitations for The Bubble Lounge in San Francisco. Like last time, the cards were designed by talented illustrator Carolita Johnson. Happy 10th Bubble Lounge!
For the past month or two I’ve been hunting all over new york city for the right glass cookie jars to make studio terrariums. I couldn’t find the right type, but finally stopped by West Elm in dumbo the other day and scored these two great glass containers. Not cookie jars, but very inexpensive ($8 and $10) and just the size for my shelf.
And to match the festive mood of spring, I was really excited this week to print a wedding invitation for a couple getting married at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center in Texas. This is a place I have been wanting to visit for a long time, it sounds so beautiful…
Just a slight diversion in my spring printing season… I took a little vacation to visit a dear friend for the Easter holiday. What a great trip, I am feeling SO rested and recharged. The weather has been perfect in Los Angeles, just what I needed after these long winter months.
Now I’m homeward-bound, ready to start working on items for the Brooklyn Flea, which starts April 6th. I’m thinking about selling cards and notebooks, but we’ll see how that shapes up. I’ll post some photos as I make stuff, I can’t wait until it begins!
This weekend was all about business cards! I had to print some new cards of my own and did a reprint batch for one of my regulars – The Bubble Lounge, who needed cards for both of their New York and San Francisco locations.
And speaking of business cards, I also have some exciting news about an upcoming joint-venture with my studiomate Breck (of Sesame Letterpress). I’ll save the details until we launch it…sometime in early April.
It must be that time of year… I’ve been printing green almost all week. Here are two wedding invitation sets I finished yesterday, a mixture of chartreuse, forrest green on cream and green papers. The recognizable berry design is one of mine, the beautiful hydrangea set is the work of the bride herself, designer Anne McAndrew.
I’m getting more and more requests lately for orchid invitations. Timing couldn’t be better because I’m starting to crave the warmer, brighter weather of spring – and staring at tropical flowers always helps.
Today is very nice though. The sun is popping in and out and the breeze down here by the water is heavenly.
