There’s nothing like doing a graduation announcement from your alma mater. This lovely client requested something unique. A standard announcement wasn’t going to do. She wanted to reflect her daughter’s sassy personality, and actually surprised her with the announcements. How fun!
If designing for someone from home wasn’t personal enough, the fellow that designed the seal art was one of my favorite and very talented classmates from 1989. My first school crush, and the first boy I ever kissed. Ok, so I just embarrassed him. Sorry Seth. See, we’re still a great team this many years later.
All the best to you Sarah in your future endeavors! We’re so happy you liked your announcements! Congratulations Tamaqua Area Class of 2012!
Looking forward to a fun-filled next few days. Heading to Bloggy Boot Camp on Saturday in Philadelphia with my ever-s0-glamorous friend, Beth. Then off to NYC with two more darling friends of the industry for the National Stationery Show. The photo just seemed to fit the bill for the end of this week. Taken in NYC by Kevin York on one very magical evening in Jan 21012.
If you’re not certain, well, that’s what we’re here for. We design to honor your mind, body and soul. Your true style.
A few years back we established a brand for the sensational, Emily Weiss, a photographer in the Washington DC area. Our job was not complete until we allowed her true style and authenticity to shine. Emily calls on us from time to time to create printed material. Now when she’s in need of a postcard, etc. we can get right down to the business with her already-established look. Through soul searching via the initial design process our clients magically become family. It’s what makes our job so rewarding.
We believe that visually communicating who you are is one of the most powerful things you can do for your business…and yourself!

Yep, this is me. I decided to head to the salon today and get my hair all cut off. I asked for a French look. Really, I did. Maybe it’s 40. Maybe it’s yearning for the need to start feeling on a whole new level. Living life to it’s fullest. I am surrounded by the most incredible family, friends, clients, and all of you that follow my blog. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me into your lives and letting my art be seen. Now go out there and start living life to it’s fullest. You have my permission to find some time to kick up your feet and enjoy your weekend! Tgif blessed blog followers.

I think of this painting every 1st of May. It’s entitled Snow Hill by Andrew Wyeth and hangs so beautifully in the Brandywine River Museum. It’s truthfully one of my favorites of all time. I was hesitant to post this today due to the fact that it doesn’t do the painting any justice, then decided to use it in order to give thanks to dear ole’ Andrew for the inspiration you’ve provided to so many over the years.
I love this little chick-a-dee! We’ve been taking her photo for years and I adore each visit. What a nice way to close out this communion season.
