It has been crazy busy around here! I have been working at Garnet Hill for the past two weeks in Franconia, NH. You all know my love for the north is irrational... but how can you not love it when you wake up to this (mostly) every day?
That is outside my hotel. Unfortunately you can't appreciate the extent of the mountains. On the far left (out of the pictures) there are some snow covered mountains that add such a beautiful back drop to everything! It makes you be thankful for every (very busy) day.
In the meantime I have been working like crazy on my Etsy Shop. It isn't easy, but people are starting to notice my work. The holidays are coming and, I have several pieces for you: my Holiday Cardinal Cards and the Holiday Gift Tags.
The inspiration for this Holiday Card came from Adam's mom, who lives in Franconia and LOVES cardinals in the winter. I had her little sketch posted on my laptop for months, until I decided to put my modern flare on it and print it. This is a three color print, which means it has to go through the press 3 times (plus another one for scoring the card). I decided to do the snow without ink so it gave the impression of a print on the snow.
Then I designed and created a set of 6 hand fed and letterpress printed gift tags with silver and the same cardinal red.
You can purchase them at my Etsy Shop. Or you can pick them up at Not Your Grandma's Craft Fair on November 12!
