the latest!

I've been developing a new custom stationery line for Fall-Winter, and am planning on giving some of these as Christmas presents to friends and family. It will most definitely be a handmade holiday this year! I'm also working on some other surprises, which will hopefully be posted soon. In the meantime, please have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

good tunes

I worked all weekend and made myself a little playlist to keep things moving. The album covers are almost as great as the fab music inside. Check out these songs at itunes (from top): "Ordinary Day" by Emilie Mover, "Time to Pretend" by MGMT, "Can't Go Back Now" by The Weepies, "Bruises" by Chairlift, "Shake It" by Metro Station and "The Kids Don't Stand a Chance" by Vampire Weekend.

oh baby!

Ok, so I saw the new James Bond last night and I was wowed by it, of course. But, if you go see it, pay attention to the titles - and, especially the titles at the beginning of each new city he visits. Tried to find stills to post here, but no luck. I was wild about the fonts used. Very cool.

Soooo, in place of that, above are some of my latest designs. I was going to enter these baby announcements in a minted.com contest, but just ran out of time. (Photography in the designs is courtesy of Wink Photography.) I'm working on ideas for the next contest - Wedding Save the Dates - and I'll post my entries for that one here as soon as possible. Entry deadline is in 2 days - I better hurry up! Stay tuned.

fabulous = eddie ross

I'm loving Eddie Ross' blog. In case you didn't know, he was a stand-out star on season 2 of Bravo's Top Design, which just ended last night. Although Eddie didn't win, his design style is fantastic - classic paired with comfort and creativity. Currently, he's the Senior Style Editor with Martha Stewart Living. And, his blog is a daily treasure trove (seriously!) of great ideas. I especially love Eddie's "Before and After" posts featuring yard sale, flea market and thirft store finds that he transforms into fabulousness. Pictured above is a recent "Object of the Day" from his blog - a beautiful piece of Chinoiserie transferware that he found on ebay for $29! I heart the bamboo pattern and must find one for myself. Check out Eddie's blog here!

rare indeed

I am going crazy over these books from Rare Device in San Francisco. All of them are just so pretty and would look nice in a big, healthy stack by the bed or on the coffee table. I'll admit, I can be the type who judges books by their covers, but in this case, I think the insides would be just as awesome as the outsides. Just think of all the fabulous inspiration and ideas too!
