Modeling a cowl that I made recently for a wonderful friend’s birthday. This pattern was from one of my favorite knitting/sewing/embroidery sites, the purl bee. This is the second one I made, and I love how it turns out. Seriously, go make one. You won’t be disappointed. And how awesome are the colors of Amazing yarn? I mean…. come on.
Another recent favorite wedding invitation suite for a bride that I met at the RIT alumni craft sale. This was my first time including a map, which I had a lot of fun with. I like the contemporary vintage (if that’s possible) theme that she has going on.
Getting pretty excited to share some new knit projects soon. And perhaps a new Avett Brothers print too.
I wanted to share some beginnings of a very pretty invitation suite that I’m working on. The ensemble is so fun to work on, featuring enclosure cards with different patterns and complementing designs that make one very unique invitation. The RSVP card even features the bride and groom’s adorable dog, Daisy. I am so excited to get working on the program and table numbers!
As many of you know, I have taken a short break from posting while I adjust to motherhood & help introduce the world to our son Liam Michael Place. He was born on New Years’ day, which makes him one month old today- how time flies! He is our most tiring and rewarding creation, and fills us daily with the greatest joy. I am looking forward to sharing more about this wonderful new life soon.
I have new projects to post shortly- lots of wedding invitation jobs are coming up, filling my sketchbook with florals, banners, and chevrons. Can’t wait to share!
These are some of the last creations of this year, so what better time to share them than on the last day of 2011? The table below is one that I refinished for a most wonderful aunt. The color of the top is best seen in the photo from a few posts ago.
And a final custom calligraphy piece. I wish the metallic inks translated from my scan!
So excited to share some new projects of 2012, including a few wedding ensembles, printable invitation templates, desktop wallpaper calendars, and my greatest creation yet! :)
Happy New Year!
Lots of new projects starting up after the holidays, including several invitation designs that I am SO excited to work on! Thought I’d share some custom work that I did for a wonderful lady that I met through etsy. She has a lovely blog full of shopping advice, fashion inspiration, and just daily family goodness.
Things are going to start getting busy around here, so I should probably send out my warm holiday wishes for everyone now! Hoping you can all enjoy some peace, calm, and loving company this Christmas.
This is just the sweetest little thing I’ve seen lately. Michael and I picked one up for our baby while at the holiday Hearts & Crafts show on Sunday. Made by sweetpeafelts, this delicate little bundle sits in half of a walnut shell. PRECIOUS!
So proud to share the completed greengirlpress calendar for 2012, featuring my calligraphy, and Amy’s beautiful design. Each calendar varies slightly, as she individually watercolored each one- so cool!
A tiny little blanket for my friend Emily’s sweet little baby, due this spring! I love this camel color for her.
Here are a few things that I’ve managed to get together before the Annual Winter Crafts show at RIT tomorrow. It will be in the SAU and fireside lounge from 10-4pm, so stop by if you’re around campus!
Still brainstorming my banner on this wreath. I am thinking “be joyful”.
Ok, so this won’t be with me at the booth – it’s a sneak peak of a new piece of furniture I’m working on.
Yesterday I spent a long time working with a more muted color palette, trying to work on illustrations of small crocheted pieces. The heart is actually an ornament that I have made a few of, and find to be delicate and simple enough to be appropriate for year round decor. I have been meaning to use one of a granny square for a series of prints or greeting cards, to appeal to those dedicated yarn crafters and granny lovers <3 The last image is an experimental watercolor of a feather, which I ended up really enjoying. I might do several small originals to frame for my next show, an annual alumni craft sale at RIT.
