Really pleased with the way these turned out.  Tea length, with inner and outer envelopes in ecru.  Opted for  script vs. print. (to which I was thrilled)   Printed with archival inks onto fine art paper, and then delicately cut down with sharp x-acto.  All the best to the lucky couple and (if you’re reading this) many thanks for a fabulous project!

Community

March 8, 2010

During my four years at SCAD, I had the opportunity to work first hand with some of the most talented, passionate, and fearless artists on the planet.  It was such a blessing to have that community of artists to bounce ideas off of.  Upon graduation, we dispersed and crawled into our own creative holes.  This was before the time that everyone had a blog or twitter or facebook fan page, and for many of us, it was a tough transition.  Which brings me to today’s post.

There’s a new community out there, a constant source of creative thought and inspiration, that’s carrying us all through a tough economic time.  I’ve “met” some fabulous artists via a blog comment or a tweet, and there is nothing better than waking up on a Monday morning to have your work featured on another artist’s blog…(thank you Elizaveta and Pet Boutique, you made my day this morning) And even though the world-wide web can be a little saturated, it doesn’t take away that sense of community and fellowship that can be had with people of similar interest and perspective.  We are so lucky to be living in this time!

Hope you all have a lovely Monday and thanks to all of you who have found my little corner of the web, and supported it!  You mean the world to me!

For those of you who aren’t local to Savannah, we’ve been having some heavy rains as of late.  Quite frankly, there is no prettier city after a good rain than Savannah, Georgia.  Biased?  Perhaps, but I have lived in many states, and this one place, just seems to take the cake.  The moss draped trees, and resurrection fern, the hazy mist that just hovers over our parks and squares, and the lush green that flourishes after.  The other day, after a  fierce storm (we lost power for about 10 hours, and had many downed limbs)..not particularly fun, but as the events of the day began to snowball, we stepped out and found this…just what I needed to see, at that very moment.  A full arch rainbow, the true beauty of which cannot be captured in my crummy photograph…but I needed this.

Speaking of rainbows, I know no bigger fan of them, than the talented  Robin Lynne. Did you all see she was a featured etsy seller?!?!?! Super congrats Robin, I can only imagine how good your house smells after baking soap like a madwoman for the past week!

Hope you all had a lovely long weekend.  Nick and I officially started making our house a home, which consumed far more time than we initially thought.  (I think this is usually the case)  We did, however, make time to grill a few burgers  and eat macaroni salad to make it feel a bit more like the Fourth. The progress:  no more  cranberry drapes and the kitchen is now asparagus green.

In other exciting news, Courtney Barnes has given me quite the write-up on her design infused blog, Style Court.  I’m honored to be featured on such a site, and I hope you will  all take a moment to peruse her blog.  It’s saturated with artful goodness, so much so, I think I’ll add her to my blogroll for a daily source of inspiration.

Happy Monday!

Just a fair warning…I may get wrapped up in life’s fun adventures, and neglect the world of technology for a spell.  In fact, I’ve been pondering the idea of turning off the computer for an entire week.  (though I’m  not quite ready to pull the plug just yet.)  As for “adventures,”  there are plenty.  I just haven’t the time for details at the moment…but soon, I’ll get you all up to  speed.

As for this past week…completely inspiring!  I’ve been working with some incredible artists in the area, and not only do I find their creative spirits refreshing, there is some reassurance in hearing their stories.  Turns out, I’m not half as crazy as I thought I was…or maybe we’re all nuts?

Have a lovely weekend!

Went home to Amelia Island this weekend.  Dad gave us the 4×4 tour of some areas I had never seen.  A real treat…and it keeps with the theme I’ve been cooking up in my head.  Now if I can just squeeze in a moment to paint for me.

This view of Fort Clinch reminds me of fairy tales.  I love the tree and the color of the sky, divine.

The southern most tip of the island is filled with dunes, and curvy swirvy dead trees, that no doubt will become driftwood one day.  It’s a peaceful place.

Even the Vayda-monster took a moment to relax.  Good times.
