Bedtime Stories

My husband and his partner (a.k.a FAILE) have an exhibition up right now in Chelsea. It's up until Dec. 23rd, so if you're around you should check it out!

I'm super proud of Patrick. He is above and beyond the most talented person I've ever known. And he's my husband! I feel so lucky and thankful to have him in my life. It's been an amazing journey together since our youthful days in art school. And to witness him become a successful artist has been nothing short of inspiring (and at times, tiring).

A sweet tidbit about us - This weekend marks the 10 year anniversary of our first date. I can't believe we've been together for a DECADE. Whoa. He took me to a jazz club and we drank tea. I wore an itchy turtleneck and velour boots. Don't ask ( I was only 20!)

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. To me Thanksgiving is the best holiday of the year. It's about food, family and friends. No gifts, just love.

Happy Happy Thanksgiving!

{fyi - each of the paintings shown is made up of 2" x 2" solid wood blocks. To say each painting is heavy and extremely labor intensive is an understatement!}

Fall Harvest Invitations

This past summer I worked on an invitation suite for this lovely couple. They were married on the bride's family farm. The invitation suite was all hand drawn illustrations and type. All sweetly packaged in a screenprinted burlap sack to fit with their Fall harvest theme. The paper goods were a 3 color screenprint on a thick kraft paper. I was so happy with the way they turned out and I'm thrilled to show you them! I'm very lucky that Thoughtful Day gets to work with such lovely and talented couples.

Check out 100 Layer Cake for the incredible photos of Sarah and Joe's gorgeous wedding! Every detail was perfectly executed by the lovely Jillian of Jillian Event Design and Styling.
