i'm so honored to have a been a part of this stunning fall wedding shoot featured today on Once Wed! styled and coordinated by Ginny Au, with breathtaking photography by Rylee Hitchner, and-- well, see below for everyone. i'm just going to share the shots featuring my work, but you're sure to love the rest (beautiful photography, outdoor setting, flowers, dress..!), both here and here. i love working with ginny, she really encourages me to do my thing (aren't those always our favorite clients/projects?!). so i was happy to design this invitation, and corresponding place-setting with hand-printed napkins, menu tucked inside, and place cards with garland sprig. all in my calligraphy of course ;) oh and click on image to see bigger.

lots of news here at LINEA CARTA headquarters!! when it rains it pours (though the sun is shining brightly) and all of a sudden i have more projects than can fit in my live-work studio.. so i decided to move my bed out for the month to make room to print, package, fill orders, prepare for sales (see below), work on custom wedding invitations, and meet with clients. one meeting in particular that i'm excited to share is with the gift buyers from anthropologie (wish me luck)! and i figure as long as i've made some space why not have an open studio and invite you too?!

hi all, sorry for my lapse in posting this month -- it's good news though and just means i've been super busy filling all your holiday orders!! and store orders, custom design projects, calligraphy jobs, ANNNND making new gifts to sell at the SF Renegade Craft Fair this weekend. oh, and i even designed and printed new 2012 linen calendars (for sale here). ♥♥
as you may know, i've been looking to move for a while now, so this calendar is my wish for a new home -- and of course my wish for you to enjoy your nesting place, wherever it may be! it includes materials birds commonly use to make nests (feathers, grasses, twigs, string). you'll also find homes like igloos, teepees, trees, and mountains. and last but not least my dream house with my two happy dogs hanging out in their dream yard. printed on both natural and avocado colored linen.
