{papel picado papercuts}

I'm loving these fun, and super-colorful, papel picado papercuts from Etsy seller Ay Mujer!:



Even if these are a bit late for Cinco de Mayo, they would make a lovely decoration for any fiesta-themed wedding or party.   And, as if the banners weren't enough, Ay Mujer! also offers papel picado papercut invitations:

I love those invitations, and the "So Happy Together" banner with the two little owls is just too cute.  Check out the full selection in the Ay Mujer! etsy shop right here.

{letterpress print – Sycamore Street Press}

I love this limited edition letterpress print from Sycamore Street Press:

The print was inspired by blue and white dishes from Delft and Royal Copenhagen, as well as the
intricate detail and beautiful landscapes of Indian manuscript painting.  I love the way the line of yellow stitching provides the perfect accent for the blue and white designs:

Check out this print and lots more from Sycamore Street Press in their etsy store right here.  I really love all the limited edition prints that have been coming out of Sycamore Street Press lately – you should definitely check out Eva's blog for new projects and giveaway opportunities!

New Posters – Lizzy House

You may remember Lizzy House from this post back in February, when I fell in love with Lizzy's poster of Shakespeare's 12th sonnet.  Well, Lizzy is back, both with a 2nd edition of the 12th sonnet poster and a brand new (and very cool) poster with Shakespeare's 59th sonnet:

You can find both this new poser and the 2nd edition of Shakespeare's 12th sonnet in Lizzy's etsy store right here – but head on over soon, since they're likely to sell out quickly if the 1st edition is any indication!

Words to Work By

I can think of a lot of people here in DC who should really adopt this phrase as one of their New Year’s resolutions:


These posters are part of a series from Australian ad agency Publicis Mojo (if you’ve got some time, they have some very cute ads playing on their website), entitled Words to Work By. Mojo creative director Micah Walker told CR Blog that the poster project is the first of a series of self-initiated projects that will see the agency link up and work with various different artists and designers.  Here are a couple others from the series:
