Styled Shoot by Modern Whimsey; Featuring Stationery by Emilee Rose

Vision of Fall, Style Photo Shoot by Modern Whimsey, Photography by Elissa R Photography

A while back Elissa contacted me to see if I was interested in working with her on a project by Mandy, the creative brains behind Modern Whimsey. Of course I would! She came up with an elegant bridal brunch set at the The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge. I designed the invitations and place cards to be fun and whimsical and decided to go with a completely hand drawn, illustrated look. The whole thing turned out beautifully!

Checking In: And a few updates

I suppose that I could stop by and check in if I haven't posted in over a month. I'd like to say that I've just been so busy that I haven't had time to sit down to write a new post. And that is somewhat accurate. I'm still getting used to working two part time jobs, one of which I typically work in the evenings, and getting used to never having a real schedule. The fall is typically a super busy time for me. Last year I filled all of my weekends with shows and worked hard on getting ready for them. This year I am (sadly) only doing two shows. Because the fall is also the busiest time for retail, I just couldn't afford (or would probably be able to) take off every weekend until the middle of December. In the tiny bit of free time that I get, I'm prepping new product to launch at my first show in November. I mentioned a while ago that I was going to be working on new card designs. Those are in FULL force and should be completed within the next few days. Ideally, I'll be photographing them and posting them online, but please do not hold your breath. These are just a small selection of the new designs: I'm pretty excited about the new designs. I'm digging the direction that these are going. These are also now printed on 100% recycled paper! I might be most excited about that. The 2012 calendar is also coming along. I'll be doing a wall calendar and a mini desk calendar this year, but no paper doll calendar. Sorry, folks. This calendar is inspired by vintage objects and each month can be re-purposed into a postcard. In between working on new designs, I'm trying to work on decor for my booth. Tilly is quite excited about this project. That is all for now! I hope to be a little more active for the rest of the year. Stay tuned!

goodbye, mr. typewriter

Vintage Underwood Typewriter from The Two Sparrows My twitter feed has been a buzzin' about the last factory producing typewriters, Godrej and Boyce, is closing. I do not personally use a typewriter, but I admire them for many reasons. From a purely visual standpoint, they look cool and produce a really great printing style. And could you imagine what life would have been like without the invention of the typewriter? For years, designers have been "fudging" the typewriter look on the computer. You definitely won't get the same results, but these are a few of my favorite typewriter-esque typefaces. Splendid 66 is by far my favorite typewriter-styled font. It is already perfectly spaces out and is destressed just enough to look authentic. Oh, and it's completely FREE, so what's not to love? American Typewriter is a fun option with a more playful look. It even looks great really large. Some typewriter fonts get all funky when blown up so that they look "stamped" when they are small. Traveling Typewriter is another great option. The variations between letters really make it look stamped! It's another great, free font.
