You were born at this exact moment 1 year ago.
Your party was this weekend. So many people came to see you. Here’s a picture of your first letterpress invitation. And your homemade cake. There were lots of felt banners and many noisemakers. You deserve it.
I just started working as the studio director for Foxy & Winston, a boutique textile and letterpress design house in Red Hook. I’m so excited. I love Jane Buck, I love Red Hook (mostly for Baked’s biscuits) and I love letterpress. Three of the best things ever!
On another note, it means I’m dissolving Rose & Virgina officially. We saw it coming, for sure. But I’d rather marry my talents with Jane’s and have a FAR better product than before. I honestly, couldn’t be happier or more relieved about it.
We’re working on a wedding for a couple getting married in Montana in a few months. I’m so excited about how the save the dates and invites turned out. It’s been my favorite paper project because of the simplicity. Also, being able to play out the Wild West bit hasn’t hurt either. OOH, and lots of lace and wildflowers and bluegrass and cowboy boots too!
We’ve been doing a bunch of crests these days, and I have to admit that it’s one of my favorite trends. It’s teeming with personality and it’s a really fun to get to know a couple. Here is a nautical letterpress invite for a wedding coming up in Rhode Island. Lovely!
We just finished printing an adorable birth announcement for baby Henry. We recently met him and look forward to hearing updates from his parents. Here are some images…how cute is that little fox and owl (c/o Mr. Vanderberg)?
We just finished printing some social stationery for a lovely Manhattan lady in gray and lavender. I’m so glad to be printing “common” stationery and that someone out there is doing their best to bring back the art of social correspondence.
I’ve been thinking about the details of our wedding lately and thought I would share. We got married at The Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, CT. It was such a beautiful day for us and everything came together perfectly. There were so many homespun details that my Mom, Aunt, cousin Monica and I put together. It was the inspiration for starting Rose & Virginia! Here are some pictures taken by Jane Shauck of Iris Photography.
Also, you can see a few more shots of the day on Brooklyn Bride!
