happy new year!

I couldn’t be more excited for a fresh start this New Year.  I’ve had a wonderfully lazy Christmas break and and in a few days I’ll be back to work.  I have some changes to make on my site and perhaps some style edits on the blog, and then I’ll be starting work on Spring wedding invitations.

But I do have some big news to share.  This autumn I was fortunate enough to buy a small home in one of my favorite places on earth, gorgeous Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  For years it has been a dream of mine to spend half my time in Brooklyn and the other half in a rural setting.  My new town is a beautiful farming community nestled on the Delaware River, about 80 minutes from my studio in Brooklyn.

Starting February 1st I’ll be spending equal amounts of time in each place.  The new commute won’t affect my work schedule much, but if you’ll indulge me I’ll be sharing some photography from my new home on the blog.  The above photo was taken of my house by my good friend and new neighbor, Kathleen Connally.

Thanks so much for reading the blog this past year!  Have a safe and happy New Year!

Welcome to the Five Days of Christmas Contest! Today’s contest was inspired by an amazing competition Slate Magazine recently ran called the ‘Write Like Sarah Palin’ Contest.  The entries had me in stitches, so I thought it would be fun to create a spin-off version for today.  To enter simply write a Holiday card greeting (2-3 lines) that you might receive from Sarah Palin and leave your answer in the comments section below.  Read some of the Slate entries for inspiration…

Today’s prize (like every day other day this week) is a 2010 Brooklyn Bridge Letterpress Calendar.    My only request is that you keep it light (and classy)!

Deadline is tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10am.  Good luck!

Today’s winner:

Haha, a little slow on this one – but great entries, and the winner is Andrea who wrote:

As the keen, brisk Alaskan air brings on a winter tempest; Todd, Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper, Trig and I wish you the warmest, most welcome and merriest of Christmases. We love you very, very deeply.
