Happy Thanksgiving & Vintage Nut Prints

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I am so thankful to all my family and friends.  Thank you all for being a part of my life and supporting my blog habit.  Sharing with you and hearing your comments brings me so much joy. 

I've been saving these vintage nut prints for a Thanksgiving post.  I couldn't believe my luck when I found them at the Springfield Antique Show this September.  They remind me of my dad and the holidays because he always has a big bowl of nuts that he cracks open and eats at Christmas.

I hope your holiday season is filled with joy and nuttiness! (Vintage-nut-print nuttiness, that is!)

Madisonville Quality-of-Life Brochure

This past week I designed this brochure for the community of Madisonville.  They are really on-the-ball and are in the process of developing a quality-of-life plan to outline their goals for the future of their neighborhood.  It was quite a group effort which is sometimes painful, but in the end all of the input produces a stronger document.

The cover drawing was by Glaserworks.  I am totally into this kind of drawing lately and it was nice to have such great imagery for the cover.  To see a larger version, click on the images.

Elephant Eraser

I bought this incredible Jonathan Adler giant elephant eraser at M. Hopple & Co. about a month ago.  As soon as I saw it I knew it was coming home with me.  I collect erasers and I have never seen one like this.  I will never dare use it,  but it sits near my monitor on my desk and brings me joy every day.  They also had giant purple squirrels and an beautiful red owl...some one may be getting one of these for Christmas!

Rollout Invitations

The other day it dawned on me that I should post my freelance work more often on the blog.  These are two options for an invitation I did for the community of Madisonville.  I liked playing off the idea of a "rollout." The client already chose and they are printed and hopefully in the mail.  Let me know your favorite.  I will post your choice and theirs in the comments in the next few days.
