Exciting news!  Back in late April I had the immense privilege of printing materials for a photo shoot featuring First Lady Michelle Obama.   This month Better Homes and Gardens‘ has a great cover story on the First Lady’s White House garden, and her commitment to teaching young people on the importance of eating fresh, healthy food.  My contribution to the story was printing the buffet cards, program covers, juice bottle labels, sandwich wrappers, gift tags and seed packet covers.  Here are some more photos of those.

All of the illustrations and layouts were created by the incredibly talented Sarah Cave.  Sarah is a photo stylist, art director, maker and industrial designer – and that’s just the short list.  :)  I just want to say thanks to Sarah and the whole BHG team for including me, what a thrill!

This past week I shipped off birth announcements to Paris, France.  I love working with clients from abroad, it makes the world seem so small and full of possibilities.  I’d like to wish a warm welcome to little Lucy, and heartfelt congratulations to her parents.   :)

Yesterday my good friend Ben came and spent the day with me in Durham.  He is the general manager of Amis in Philly, and also happens to be an awesome chef.  In the afternoon we kicked around my garden, and then he showed me how to make fried green tomatoes and zucchini.  Here are some more photos of our foodie lesson.  Next month he’s coming back for a brussel sprouts crash course.

This is the time of year when I start printing autumn wedding invitations, and its usually in the middle of a killer heatwave like this one.  I like summer, but Fall is my favorite – hands down.  Can’t wait for chilly breezes and scarves.  :)
