sarah's birth announcement

as promised - the unveiling of last week's sneak peek!

each announcement set included a 5x7 announcement, coordinating sticky-back mailing label and hand-lined envelope. the photo was tipped on (applied separately) and printed on an archival gloss stock - a great contrast to the uncoated announcement surface. it's always nice to use different textures and finishes to make the final product a little more special and unique.

help remedies

these have been floating around the blogosphere quite awhile now and i can't help but join the bandwagon. help remedies. amazing packaging. the simpler, the better. there is just too much packaging out with too much on it. so much more effective this way. focus on the symptom, here's your remedy.

chewing the cud

i am hoplessy in love with the reusable fabric gift wrap from chewing the cud. organic cotton and soy-based inks make it even better. i'm always in the lookout for ways to put a a new spin on everyday things and this definitely does it!

pantone fall '09

came across the pantone fashion color report for fall 2009 while doing some research today. definitely a more thoughtful palette this time around. unique pairings and subtle contrasts open up lots of possibilities. and, i'm loving iron as the 'new black'. oh boy! my mind is swimming in color! hmmm...

you can download the full report here or from the link above, just in case you might be interested.

social papers

"real “social papers” are not boxed cards with your initial from your corner stationer. social papers are made with hand-cut dies, a universe of fonts and stock in shades like creamy ecru, tobacco or artichoke..."

that being said, i found an interesting article from penelope green, writer for the new york times. seems “social papers are thriving, in spite of, or perhaps because of, the prevailing digital culture."

so happy to know that hand-crafting is surviving - thriving, actually - a great sign! there is nothing better than receiving a beautifully hand-crafted keepsake.
