My husband came home last night.  I snapped this photo while at the airport waiting for his plane to arrive.  I’m off to enjoy my first weekend with him in a long, long time.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone! xoxo

This week on Oh So Beautiful Paper:

Marriage Equality Artwork from Fine Day Press

Ashley at Fine Day Press created these beautiful prints to commemorate the legalization of same sex marriage in her home state of New York.   Both editions are 8×10″ prints of an original watercolor illustration, printed on luxuriously thick, textured, bright white paper with archival inks.  Ashley plans to donate 10% of proceeds to the Human Rights Campaign in the hopes that gay marriage will soon become legal through the entire country.

Paper Artwork – Black and White Astronomy Prints

I’m absolutely in love with these astronomy prints from Agent Gallery Chicago.  I love the moody contrast of the black and white charts, and each chart brings out my inner astronomy geek.  I think the constellation and moon charts are my favorite – so pretty!

Sweet Pink Birth Announcements for Baby Amelia

Beth from OneCanoeTwo welcomed her first child earlier this year – a darling baby girl named Amelia.  When it came time to send out Amelia’s birth announcements, Beth worked with photographer Heather Roth to create a collage of beautiful images of Amelia, which Beth used to create a 5 x 7″ digital print.  Beth then incorporated a letterpress printed belly band that contained all of Amelia’s birth information.  Such a wonderful combination of digital and letterpress – and I love that adorable scalloped border!
