cupcake party...

I'm wild about this new vermillion sumi ink I found at my favorite art store the other is the cheeriest color, especially for cupcake party invitations, don't you think?

Book Club

My friends Marianne, Kara, Erin and I have embarked upon the journey of wading through the entire book list outlined in The Well-Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had. I typed up the book list here, if you would like to take a peek. I'm pretty enthused, but am imagining it will take about twenty years to get through the entire list, reading carefully and critically. First up- Don Quixote, which I somehow wriggled out of reading in both high school and college.

Jen and Manny

I wanted to start a new little feature here where I spotlight some photos from clients' weddings.
First up, Jen and Manny, a charming couple who were married in May at the Union Church of Pocantico Hills and then celebrated at Blue Hill at Stone Farms. The entire day seemed so intimate and playful and just all around lovely. Congrats, Jen and Manny! Wishing you blessings in your new life together!




Jen incorporated vintage children's book illustrations into the invitation suite (last photo) and then used them as table "numbers" as well- what a playful addition! [Picture+13.png]

Photography (except for last photo) by Erik Ekroth.

Wishing you a Cheery Day!

I have a really sweet husband who sends me goofy postcards in the mail when I need cheering up. I absolutely love this "waving mermaids" card. It made me laugh out loud. How could you possibly feel grumpy staring at this image?!

I did these folder covers for my mother-in-law as a favor, but I can't help but think they would be so pretty as personal stationery. Those swirly circles are so fun to do!

Toddlers and Lawns...

I had a very full week last week- Nick was out of town and I took care of our friends' little girl Allie- an almost two year old- for four days. Trying to get all my work done while entertaining a little one was certainly a challenge! And I can't believe how much gear is "necessary" for such a tiny little person. Oh and also, since some of you were wanting to see pictures, our lawn caved in about two feet. Randomly. (Please ignore the dead sweet peas in the corner.) It was very dramatic.

The first hints of the monsoon season are finally rolling in this week. My favorite type of weather!
