Justin & Cara's Wedding Invites

Finally able to post this wedding set that I made for Justin & Cara. They got married this weekend under a tree in Belize—they send me a photograph of the tree so I could make the silohouette on the front of the invites... so perfect, sweet and romantic!
Everything on the inside was hand lettered—just incase you're a type-nerd like me and need to know these things.

If you've been following the news you know that hurricane Alex paid a visit to Justin & Cara's wedding on Saturday (pretty sure he didn't RSVP!) We haven't heard from the newly weds or any of our friends that made it out there yet but if we know them it was an amazing time anyway!

Congrats you two & if anyone reading this has heard from them please let us know that everyone's okay!

*Just heard that all is well, thank goodness!

Warmbelly Brews: Road Trip a Belgian-Style Triple

J and Jeff brewed their second batch of beer. (see the first one here) This is a Belgian-style Triple and it's quite delicious. The labels are entirely hand-lettered by yours truly.

Stoop-Sale finds

Here in Brooklyn we don't have garages or yards (well, most of us don't) so we don't have yard sales or garage sales. But we do have stoops. So we do have stoop sales. I spotted these little gems at a sale 2 weekends ago and still can't get over that old ink packaging!

The gentleman I bought them from said they were his son's and that I should just tell him what I would pay for them. I got the whole lot for $3. Three. dollars. I've often eyed lino cutting tools at art supply stores but just can't stand buying the plastic kits they make now. Expect to see some lino prints coming soon!

And then there's this beauty... the couch J spotted on his way home from his Saturday morning bike ride. (it's a lot less orange and a lot more yellow in real-life.) Oh, and did I tell you? We moved. yes. again. For the last time in NYC. no more. But our place is bigger, cheaper and in the same 'hood. And quieter. We wake up to the sound of woodpeckers. I'm not kidding. Good-bye honking horns, we've moved to the country! (or at least that's what it feels like...)

First Aid Kit

I know I've posted about First Aid Kit before.

We saw them preform at the Bell House last night and it was phenomenal! They are incredibly talented. I highly recommend listening to some of their new tunes on myspace—go ahead and skip down to 'Ghost Town' at the end, so good!

*I can't figure out why the video is only embedding the left-half!? Any suggestions? sorry about that.

Rebecca & Aaron's Wedding Invites

I loved creating these romantic wedding invites for my dear friend Rebecca and her husband, Aaron. They were married in St. Paul's chapel in Lubbock, Texas—such a sweet place and one of my personal favorites!

Since the chapel is so small they needed invites to the actual wedding and then a set of invites to the reception only.

Congratulations Rebecca & Aaron, I wish we could have been there!
