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!

We’re certainly over the summer slump!  I ran clear out of Fountain notes the other day…(don’t worry more are on the way)…and I can’t seem to keep stock with the Savannah Prints. (it’s crazy to think that Christmas is already upon us)  Thanks to all of you who helped spread the word about my work!  Don’t forget, you can buy my Fountain Notes and Savannah Prints directly from The Ink Lab.  Or if you don’t want to “sign in” to etsy, just shoot me an email, and I’ll gladly get an invoice to ya.

Of all the Savannah Prints, this one might just be my favorite…

…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!

a sweet surprise…

July 23, 2008

came in the mail yesterday!   One of my clients finally had my pen & ink of his house printed up on notes, and was so kind as to send me one!  I was even more impressed, that he took such care as to have my name printed on the back.  (Ray, you’re the best!  I can’t wait to work it into a Christmas Card for you!)

Anywho, this kind gesture reminded me, that I’ve yet to post much about my new notes to this blog!  For months I’ve been working with local stationer Turtle Creek. (if you haven’t visited their little boutique at the corner of Montgomery Crossroads and Whitebluff, then you are really missing out!)  Most anyone that commissions a pen & ink of their home or business, also likes to have the image printed on notes, and for years, I just turned over a disk to the client, and told them to go to the printer of their choice.  In turn, some people never took the time to find a printer, others found a printer but neglected to give me a byline, and some were of better quality than others…after a very busy 2007 Holiday Season, I decided it was time to do the leg work, and find a printer.  Turtle Creek just happens to have the best stock around, and at a good rate.  Each note is printed on fine Crane Stationary, and at roughly 3.5″ x 5″, they are the perfect size for the “anything” note!  Here’s a peek…

I just love that they got my little nesting bird on the back, and it’s just amazing how something as simple as an embossed edge can add so much to the overall feel.  Thank you Turtle Creek for roughing it out, and making this little idea of mine a reality!
