Happy Friday everyone! Are you all looking forward to the long holiday weekend? I definitely am – it’ll be nice to have an extra day to catch up on things and it also happens to be my birthday this weekend! I don’t usually make a big fuss over my birthday, but since I’ll be entering the last year of my twenties I’m paying a bit more attention this time around. In other news, I haven’t been able to stop listening to the new Wolf Parade album – it’s so good! The song below is my favorite (sorry, there’s no video, just the audio track) and I can’t wait until they come to the area on tour in a couple of months. But in the meantime…
The new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is coming to newsstands in just a few days, but in the meantime I have a little sneak peek to share with you!
The Fall issue will be devoted to all things fashion (fitting for September, no?), and when it came to stationery the editors decided to focus on wedding invitation designs inspired by the elements of fashion, including pleats, scalloped edges, tuxedo details, sheer fabrics, fanciful flourishes, and stitching. The story includes six of my favorite designers and three amazing calligraphers – I can’t wait to see everything in print!
Sigh… today has kind of gotten away from me. It’s one of those days where dealing with issues on the back end of the blog has eclipsed my focus on the front end. Don’t we all have days like that? So I leave you with these lovely woodgrain wedding invitations/wedding field guide by Urban Influences and promises to come back tomorrow (with a fun sneak peek at some of the stationery in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings!). Check out the full details of these invitations over at Benign Objects.
In the meantime, I did a little Q and A session over at The B List blog – check it out right here! Also of note, I had the opportunity earlier today to attend the swearing-in ceremony for my former boss and mentor – he’s heading off to be an Ambassador and I couldn’t be more proud of him. It’s so nice to see good things happen for good people; makes my heart all warm and fuzzy.
Happy September everyone! I’m a bit partial to September, since it’s both my actual birthday month and my blog anniversary month! OSBP will be turning two years old in just a few short days. Yay! However, August doesn’t seem to have gotten the dismissal memo and it’s still hot as blazes around here. Maybe I can will Fall to arrive with these autumn-inspired note cards from Sweet Harvey?
