Paperless Post: Holiday 2014 Catalog




I got the new Paperless Post Holiday 2014 catalog in the mail. Styled by my friend Randi Brookman Harris and shot by Chelsea McNamara, it's a thing of beauty. I feel so lucky to be one of Paperless Post's design partners, and it's so much fun coming up with new card and invitation designs for them. I have brand-new designs for holiday invitations and photo cards for the season, and I'll share those here soon. (And they have a great deal right now for 20% off all paper orders and free shipping before 12/15; use the code CHEERS at checkout).

Our Craft Book: MAKE & GIVE




This was a big week over here! Because the craft book I've been working on quietly for the past two years just came out on Tuesday! It's called Make & Give: Simple and Modern Crafts to Brighten Every Day.


It's been a lot of work but such a joy to collaborate with my friend, Steph Hung on the book. One of the best things about the whole process was working with her, and we are both so happy and humbled to see the book out in the world and hear what people think.


There's more to say, and we'll share some behind-the-scenes photos and a bit about our process soon.


But for now, here are a couple things to note: we will have book events in Toronto (Steph's town!) and NYC (my city!).

Please spread the word and come on out to say hello, we'd love to meet you.
All are welcome to these events, and our books will be sold (so please help us support our favorite local bookstores!).

RECENT WORK: Creative Mornings, COLOR



Have you heard of Creative Mornings? It's a free breakfast lecture series for creatives all around the world, started by Tina Roth Eisenberg of Swiss-Miss (one of my favorite design sites) and Tattly (the best temporary tattoos, ever).

They invite artists and designers around the world to illustrate each month's lecture theme. So I was thrilled when they asked me to work on September's theme, COLOR. I sent the Creative Mornings team a few sketches and they loved this idea, made out of paper, best.





Then, I got to work cutting out and assembling many small layers of colored paper. I played around with several different arrangements.
