Custom Calligraphy Holiday Card Stamp


If you follow us on instagram, you got a sneak peek of this last week. A custom calligraphy rubber stamp for your holiday cards.
I wanted to see how many names I could fit under the tree, so for the example, I went with my favorite family. Know who it is?
 After the rubber is engraved, I engrave the design onto the wood mount. Not only is this a great stamp, but it's a beautiful keepsake.
This design is offered in two sizes, and can be found in the shop here.

Making Mail Doc

About a year and a half ago, I was interviewed for this documentary about making mail. It was a kickstarter that got funded. It's now available to watch online here. 
The film interviews a variety of mail artists. Still a bit shocked that The Queen of Mail Art wasn't interviewed for it. Maybe there will be a sequel.
I hope to never make this face again LOL
And why didn't i get my hair done? I'll never know.
Some action shots
This was when I lived in Oceanside. Because these guys who were making the film were traveling from Ohio to Los Angeles, I came up from Oceanside. We filmed at Reform School. Thanks, Reform School!

LA Cake Club Custom Stamps

If the people reading this are in LA, I hope you've heard of LA Cake Club. It's a cake and dessert club that meets once a month. Sara, the talent behind Matchbox Kitchen, is the founder of LA Cake Club. You get together with a group of like minded individuals and eat cake! It's the best club ever. (You can sign up for the newsletter here.)
At every meeting, you're supposed to bring a take away box for leftovers. When I first started making personal stationery, I used to put the finished product into these pink pastry boxes.  After the first meeting I attended, I was so happy. I wanted to contribute something to cake club. I looked up cake club and found the above image. (photo by Sara of Matchbox Kitchen.) I loved it! Then I had an idea.
I drew the cake and wrote LA cake club, scanned it onto my computer, then turned it into a rubber stamp. One was large and in charge (3 x 3 inches) and the other one is tiny and cute (1 x 1 inches.)
I had too much fun trying out the stamp.
Then I dug around in my studio and found that I still had some pink pastry boxes.
I stamped a few then shipped them off to Sara, along with the stamps.
It was fun seeing them shared on instagram, and though I had to miss the next meeting, I heard the boxes were a hit!

If you'd like me to design a hand written type/logo for your club or business, get in touch.
I'm looking forward to the next meeting of LA Cake Club :)
