A summery Bat Mitzvah invitation....



Lauren wanted a contemporary, summery Bat Mitzvah invitation. I hope she loved the way these turned out as much as I did. The tiny crystal accent in the flowers adds just a touch of girlish sparkle!

50th Wedding Anniversary



Look at this darling couple! I love the way these turned out. The front photo and caption is mounted on heavy gold stock on black, and the invitation feels very substantial. I'm so happy to be part of this wonderful occasion.

Being green.....

Olivia wanted her Bat Mitzvah to be as green as possible so we made sure to use all recycled paper and earth-friendly inks, added green- themed table signs, and made placecards out of seeded paper that can be planted after the party to bring flowers to the gardens or windowsills of the lucky attendees. What a lovely girl, and what a nice message!

Big Sunday

Big Sunday is a wonderful event in Los Angeles, where churches, synagogues, schools,clubs, and private businesses all work together to do projects aiding the needy all over our city. I was very happy to donate these boxes that were filled with art supplies and decorated by the students at Temple Israel of Hollywood to be given to kids recovering from the trauma of abuse.Thanks to youth group director Calvin Dacosta for helping put this special art project for FREE ARTS FOR ABUSED CHILDREN together!

two shower invitations



It's spring, and it seems to be shower time! I designed similar invitations in two different color combinations. I think they both look very modern and fresh.

Calligraphy


Look at this gorgeous calligraphy from my friend Candy Schulman-Firestone. You'll send the most elegant envelopes in town! and I'm thinking calligraphied signatures would make wonderful letterpress stationery!
You can reach her through me or at candy1440@aol.com

very personal stationery...



My friend Seth had us design this stationery as a very special gift for his mother, featuring her letterpress signature and her special "Mom" trademark symbol. I just love it. We also printed some without the adorable MoM for more serious occasions. I hope she loves her surprise!

Thank You Cards

These thank you cards echo the motif I used in the invitations for Elianna and Lauren's Bat Mitzvah, but since they had different ideas about color, we ran each their own choice!

I love a response card that is blank for a message, forcing a sweet note rather than a checked off space. It makes getting those little envelopes back all the more fun, and all the responses can be saved in an album or file box. very sweet!

Tropical wedding invite...



Papaya was the main color chosen for this invitation, perfect for a destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta. I like how the mix of colors and fonts came together.
