One thing I love about Savannah are all the little hidden courtyards and carriage houses.  As if the houses on the street aren’t charming enough?!

If you’re local to Savannah, you may have spotted them already at ShopScad, The Tea Room, or La Paperie, but now you can also get your Savannah Notes online via The Ink Lab.  I’ve mixed up the series a bit and revamped the packaging to include an eco-friendly kraft paper box.  Each box includes 8 notes featuring my pen & ink drawings of Madison Square, Lafayette Square, Chippewa Square and the iconic Forsyth Park Fountain.  Get yours here!

Hope y’all are enjoying a beautiful Savannah Spring!

There’s just something about this house in Rhode Island that speaks to me.  I’ve never been there and it probably has something to do with the fact that it seems so isolated, perched over the beach.    It’s a family home that opened its doors to a wedding in the back yard (talk about a backdrop) and I was lucky enough to draw it as a wedding gift for the bride & groom.

A little something for the only two people on the planet brave enough to let me marry them.  Can’t believe it’s been a year already!  Happy Anniversary Val & Pat!

In 1904 the Jekyll Island Club was referred to as “the richest, the most exclusive, the most inaccessible club in the world,” according to Munsey’s Magazine.  The Club still lives up to it’s grand title, this sketch a mere detail of the sprawling building and lush grounds.  Click Here to read some of the fascinating history behind the Jekyll Island Club.

Love love love the Harper Fowlkes House!  Beautiful inside and out, and it’s been on my list to draw for ages.  (my right hand is still crippled from all the last minute details applied last night) The original has been sold, but you can bet I’ll be offering some variety of prints in the not-so-distant future.

The First 12 days of 2012

January 12, 2012

So far…200 wedding invitations, 20 baby shower invitations, 14 engagement party invitations…2 custom pen & ink commissions from start to finish…5 trips to the post office (resolution:  pick certain days to ship and stick to it)…and a quick trip to Florida for a dress fitting.  A feverish pace, but if you believe that the stars have any say, I was doomed from the start.
