Today is a new feature!  I printed a series of vintage graphics on these moleskine cahier notebooks.  This is a lady golfer…and the person who comes up with the best caption wins it.  You can leave your entries below in a comment, I’ll announce a winner on Wednesday.  (International entries welcome)  Good luck!  :)

Of course I can’t sell anything without a really great tag.

I want to send a million thanks to jungrrl at Craftster for posting an online tutorial on how to make a craft show banner.  I followed her instructions and here’s my finished product!  I have always wanted to have a swanky sign for my craft shows, so since I’ll be doing a few weekends this summer at the Brooklyn Flea I figured it was the time to take a crack at it.  If you follow Craftster’s instructions you can keep your expenses very low.  I spent $5.50 on a large copy of my sign at kinkos, and $11 on fabric and felt – that’s it!

If you have any tips on signs you made or have questions on how to make your own, leave a comment and we’ll start a discussion.

I’ve been holed away for a few days, getting my ducks in a row for next weekend when I’ll be at the Brooklyn Flea both Saturday (in Fort Greene) and Sunday (in Dumbo)!  I’ll be sharing a booth with my friend Jane of Foxy & Winston, so it should be lots of fun.

I’ve decided to follow my passion and make a bunch of terrariums to sell.  I’m going to be offering three different versions, including some in mason jars (for a less expensive option).  Obviously they’re going to have a gorgeous letterpress tag…still working on those.  I’m also going to be selling some cool new Brooklyn cards that I designed in the spirit of vintage postcards.  Still haven’t made plates for those yet but I’ll post in a few days when they’re done.

Also, I found this awesome online tutorial on how to make a craft sale banner – so I’ll update you guys on that in a day or two.  Whew, lots of stuff going on this week, stay tuned!

Today I delivered this wedding invitation with very dark inks.  The clients chose a vibrant combination of burgundy and navy blue elm leaves.  Even though each piece was a single ink color, I had to break these into two batches:  graphics getting double ink, and text single ink.  This happens sometimes with very dark ink since big solid areas usually need double ink for even coverage.  The text looks too heavy with more than one inking…what we printers call ‘muddy’.

I had such a nice few days away this past weekend.  I went to an awesome family party in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and then had a photography pow-wow with my sister in New Jersey.  I took these photos in Frenchtown, NJ on the gorgeous Delaware River at sunset.  This weekend we were shooting only in manual mode (something every good photographer tells me I must do).  So from now on I’m going to commit to manual only…and start a house hunt on the Delaware.

I printed some sweet grassy invitations a few months ago for a backyard/outdoor wedding in Michigan.  These table cards came later, still love this nice spring green!
