“Yes, there’s lots of problems with the health care legislation, and no, Obama didn’t magically fix everything with his ultra-charismatic Jesus-like wizardry, but it’s still fantastic that the U.S. elected a black dude. And, despite Proposition Eight passing in California [in 2008], gay people are getting married in the U.S., and we will have it sooner or later. There’s gay marriage in Iowa! That’s pretty amazing…” – Source
Hello lovely blog readers! I am back from the holidays and had a wonderful time and am hoping that all of you did too! In light of post-holiday-ness, and in order to get ready for the new year, all of our holiday-specific cards, card sets and gift tags are now on sale in our etsy shop. This is a great opportunity to stock up on some really cute paper goods for next year, and everything is at least 20% off, so go over and check it out!
ical Social Worker. She splits her time between Wilson, Wyoming and Montecito, California and these calling cards were a surprise gift for her from my mother, as she had once mentioned to my mom that she needed new calling cards badly. They feature her name, both towns where she resides and her e-mail address. Her previous calling cards had a small half-moon and star motif that we chose to continue in the new design. These were printed on Crane Lettra Pearl White 100% cotton paper in navy blue ink. Once again, I love the way a clean and simple, yet elegant design can really convey a person’s personal contact information, oh so nicely.

I recently had the opportunity to team up with the awesomely creative calligrapher/illustrator of Tart Workshop, Crystal Kluge, to design and letterpress print an absolutely adorable set of holiday gift tags. Crystal and I have had (and currently have) some mutual custom clients, so it was really exciting to get to work with her again on a project specifically for Tart Workshop & Twin Ravens Press!
Two of our designs were featured this week in a couple of different places!
I recently had the pleasure of working on a wedding invitation suite for a couple in Cali, Colombia! The couple is currently living in Florida, but they are having their wedding and reception this month in the bride’s home town of Cali.
First of all, I must send a huge thank you out to everyone who came and said “hi” yesterday at the Meet Your Maker Holiday Show. The show was a great success, and we had a much better turn out this time than at the one we did in November, so thank you to everyone who came!
their names and then a place for them to indicate which event(s) they would be attending. Kate and Erick planned a Friday night welcome and a Sunday morning brunch, as well as their wedding ceremony and reception, which was held on a Saturday. They also included a space where guests could write in a song that they would dance to at the wedding reception.
If you’re in Eugene, Oregon this weekend come down to the Fenario Gallery at 881 Willamette Street on Sunday from 11-5 o’clock. Twin Ravens Press will be selling holiday greeting cards, gift tags and other goodies at the Meet Your Maker show, which will be our last public event before Christmas and for 2009. So, if you’re going to be in town on Sunday, come down and check it out! There will be approximately 24 other vendors also selling fabulous holiday goods, as well as live music, food, drinks, an awesome raffle and other merriment! I hope to see you there!
Good morning, folks! It’s time for another addition of “It’s so cold in Oregon, all I can think about is wanting to be somewhere tropical”. So, with no further ado, I present to you a lovely wedding invitation suite that I designed and printed last spring for a couple who live and were married in Honolulu, Hawaii. At the time that I began working with Henri-Lee and Konrad, I was actually working with another couple who was using their same wedding planner. The wedding planner’s name is Alia Kennedy of Parasol Events in Honolulu, and she put me in touch with both lovely couples! We haven’t actually met in person, but Alia is a true gem to work with, and I would highly recommend her if you are planning a destination wedding or a local wedding in Hawaii. When Alia contacted me about Henri-Lee and Konrad’s wedding, we didn’t have much time to design and print a totally custom suite. I listened to what Henri-Lee was envisioning though and described another suite I was currently working on for another couple, who you recently read about here, and we decided that we could create a similar suite that was adapted to better reflect Henri-Lee and Konrad’s wedding without starting completely from scratch. You can see the four pieces in their invitation suite at the top of this post.
