Charming Rifle

I have been doing a bit of searching online for inspiring invitation design and came across Anna Bond's work...do you know of her? She is based in Winter Park and does some incredible wedding stationary and illustrations. Her company is called RIFLE Design and if you haven't seen her work yet, i hope this makes you smile. You're probably going for coffee with her tomorrow, but how am i supposed to know these things?

Luscious Labels

Australians love their wine. A bit of an understatement, but I'll speak plainly here and let the labels from Killibinbin help me when i say that most of us are so swamped with wines, sometimes you just need one to reach out and grab you. I saw this label the other day and decided I HAD to purchase this wine, if only for the labels.

Danny and Julia

My grandparents met in the Bronx when they were 19. She was wearing a red dress. He always says "she was walking around like she had lost something, turns out it was me she was looking for."

Today is their 61st Anniversary

He still uses my Return of the Jedi juice cup that I loved when I was 3

She cooks the best chicken and rice.

He likes to invent things

and fix things

They love this tree

They sing in Spanish

and always make us laugh

Te quiero mucho mucho

Hand Knitten

Kate Jenkins is a crochete artist from Brighton whose philosophy is that anything can be created from yarn as long as it is made with love. I think it's plain hilarious. Check out some more of her work here.

Put Some Yarn On Your Head

photos: Jen O'Malley

These beauties are now available on my Etsy Store. Made from high quality silk, organic cotton, bamboo and merino wool yarn. Alex, I think it's time to bring the Barfs back and we can knit and crochet people from head to toe.

Japanese illustrations are becoming fast and furious, my favorite kind of illustration. Still a huge spot in my heart for cutting and pasting , Machiko does some beautiful pieces.

Book Boner

A Shimmer of Possibility
Inspired by the short stories of Anton Chekhov

Chekhov's six principles that make a good story:

1.  absence of lengthy verbiage of a political-social-economic nature
2.  total objectivity
3.  truthful descriptions of persons and objects
4.  extreme brevity
5.  audacity and originality: flee the stereotype
6.  compassion

A Dictionary Story

"When it comes to typography language always comes first. This might seem like a fairly obvious statement to make but to find this harmony between content and form is incredible hard."

If I could only feel the weight, smell the ink and glue, listen to the subtle crackle open. Guess I will have to make my own. ; )
