inspiration library : wedding invitations

my sister's wedding is coming up in a few months and i started brainstorming ideas for her invitations. they will have to be fairly simple and sweet because of the short turnaround (she only has 3 months to plan!) but i am hoping to letterpress them.

i've been browsing through a wedding blogs that i love and have been stockpiling some ideas. these are a few that i adore!

how beautiful and creative?? can you imagine receiving one of these? sigh...

emotional lithography

i started taking a lithography class at the manhattan graphics center last month and am loving every minute of it. well honestly loving and hating because it puts me through a roller coaster of emotions. someone in the studio told me "lithography is not for the faint of heart" and i really do believe it. well here are some images of my plates, prints, and process. many more to come!


Print Shop

Urban Outfitters just came out with a Print Shop! A community of artists from Society6 are teaming with Urban to get beautiful art pieces out into the world via laptops and ipods :)

I love love how they look and I think these would make such cools gifts!

I have been on the hunt for a bicycle for a couple of years now without much luck. Browsing through Craigslist, bike shops, and even eyeing parked bikes along the road I have yet to come across THE ONE. Well today I have! These beauties are what I have been dreaming about since childhood!

Public Bikes are joining the bike movement all across the world and will launch their collection in April! One lucky winner will win one of these babies if they enter they essay contest (oh believe me I plan to!) Even if I don't win I will go check out their test site just so I can snap a photo with one :)
