Carlos Amorales

This exhibit takes my breath away! What you are looking at is 25,000 cut-paper moths. This installation is the work of Mexican artist, Carlos Amorales, one of the exhibiting artists in Slash: Paper Under the Knife. This work titled Black Cloud was created by sticking 25,000 black paper moths on the walls, ceiling, beams, corridors and even bathrooms of the exhibition space and studio. This installation is simply amazing to me. I am in awe. Above: Black Cloud (Installation view), 2007.

I hope this inspires you to do something creative today!

What's We're Working On: Angela & Brian's Wedding Invitations

We just received the most lovely note from our bride Angela & her parent and wanted to share with you:


The invitations came and are absolutely beautiful! You really do an amazing job--I now understand what your other customers meant when they wrote in their reviews about not wanting to send them out because they'd rather just stare at them. Thank you so so much. [My parent and I] are 100% satisfied. Thanks again! You have truly helped make our wedding all the more special with the beautiful invitations.
Angela, Ann & Jim

We started when Angela shared her inspiration board with me:

Isn't it so pretty? I LOVE it. So I suggested the Blush Pink Repossee Pattern from Anna Griffin created for Envelopements. We put it together with Tourmaline Pink, & Chanpagnium to create the most beautifully stunning invitation suite complete with Toumaline-lined Champagnium envelopes. We printed each of her 299 guests' addresses on the outer envelopes to give them that special touch. These pictures really don't do the justice at all. They are very sparkly and are just breathtaking.
