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!

Oak Notes are here!!!

May 31, 2011

It’s taken 6 months longer than I anticipated to get these ready for the shop…too many decisions, I suppose…but Oak Notes are finally here!  8 folded notes and envelopes featuring 4 different Live Oak Tree pen & ink drawings.  Each packaged in an eco-friendly, kraft paper box and topped of with a chocolate-colored satin bow.

Congrats to the Happy Couple!  The Bride commissioned a custom pen & ink drawing of her parents’ home as a wedding gift for them, and it was a pure pleasure to draw!

oh what a surprise…

February 21, 2009

So as many of you are aware, I have a line of Savannah greeting cards, sold throughout the little galleries in our area, and of course over in TheInkLab. Each box of notes is carefully sorted and packaged by hand, right down to the little black satin bow.  I’m meticulous about this process, and often recount envelopes and cards just to make sure I didn’t miss one…we’ll boy did I get a surprise yesterday!  See the following email:

Hello,

I just found a message in a box of your Savannah notecards that I purchased at the SCAD store last fall and thought it might have been meant for you.  One of the cards was written on, “Hi Sweetie, here is a check.  Your idea of the “desk” was perfect.  Have a great week.  Much love, hugs & kisses, Gran.”  The message indicates that a check was enclosed but there was none.  Anyway, I was just wondering as I have never bought a box of notecards before that had a “used” note in it!!  (I’ve enjoyed sending these cards and even purchased a box for my sister who has a daughter enrolled at SCAD.)

Mystified,

Lori

PS  I have the card if you would like it!

Ha!  I almost fell out of my chair when I read that email.  How this note (and I do believe it was from my Gran to me) found its way into a new package of cards is beyond me.  Those of you who have visited the studio, know how organized I keep the inventory.  Alas, it makes for a great story, and many thanks to Lori for her good humor about the situation.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Things are Picking Up!

November 12, 2008

I really love this time of year.  Meeting and working with new clients, reconnecting with some from years gone by.  So many different directions from which to work.  It keeps everything fresh and exciting.  Anywho, here’s the latest ink.  I just fell in love with this old live oak.

There’s still time to commission your very own ink for the super-sale price of $200!  (that’s a savings of $50!)  Just shoot me an email or visit The Ink Lab to get started.  Oh yeah, and you don’t have to be local.  It’s very common for me to work from photographs.  We can even have your ink printed on luxurious note cards, or have prints made of the old family home.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Wishing you all a very happy Wednesday!

The Holidays are right around the corner!  Now’s the time to get your custom pen & ink drawing started, and for a little incentive, I’ve dropped the price from $250 to $200!  So commission that ink, and use the extra $50 to order 50 fabulously matching note cards!

Here’s how the process works:

1.  I start with a photograph.  You can supply a photo of your old family home, your cousins house in Wyoming, or if you’re local to Savannah, I prefer to take my own shots.

2.  I draw up a pencil sketch for your approval.  You tell me if I’ve missed that ever-so-unique weather-vane, or little detail that makes your house a home.

3.  We make any final adjustments, and then it’s time to play with ink.  Your final image is an 11×14 inch drawing with archival ink, and comes with a black mat and a sassy pinwheel bow.

4.  Last, but certainly  not least, for a $1 per note,  you can have your house printed on fine Crane Stationery from my friends at Turtle Creek.  Perfect for that “anytime” note!

I’ve even had small prints made of the old family home, so that everyone in the family can have a memory of that special place!  The possibilities are endless!

So take advantage of that low rate, and availability…(last year my schedule booked up pretty fast)…and commission your ink today!  You can do so easily via The Ink Lab, or if you’d rather not have to “sign in” to etsy, then just shoot me an email at Heather@FLYoungStudio.com and I’ll send you an invoice.

Thanks for stopping by!

…and loving every minute of it!  Here’s a completed ink…(you saw the proof a few days back)…turned out quite nicely I think.  I dropped off another ink today, and sent one over to Turtle Creek to have printed on notes.  Ah, I love the onset of Christmas madness!
