made a quick card for a young friend’s bar mitzvah the other day… once again it’s just a quick photo taken with my phone- i’m on instagram now, too! if you’re interested my username is “miromadethis”
hope everyone has a good monday!
Here’s some more cards that are new for this season- more wire words. These are for my friend Sasha, who probably thinks I’ve long forgotten her suggestions. Since the cards are handmade, everyone is always coming up with ideas for what I should put on a card- some better than others. The bicycle card came about because of a bosses’ husband’s request- he had a little friend who had broken her arm riding her bike. Other suggestions have been a little less compelling- someone suggested that I make a card with a person leaping off a cliff, as a kind of new-agey “taking the leap of faith” kind of thing- yeah. Anyway, Sasha was one of my friends that helped me when I had some really big orders for Anthropologie with really short deadlines. She suggested the following cards- so, many months later, here we go. These were actually pretty hard to get right- I tried them right away when she suggested them, and then played with them on and off for month. Sometimes text is harder than other things- a curve or a straight edge in one letter can make or break the whole thing…
These will be up in the next few days in the shop- I’ll post when they are available.
I’m still obsessed with trying to write text with wire- so I entered the banner contest at bloesem kids– the suggested parameters included writing out “bloesem kids” in your own handwriting, and including the existing symbols she currently uses on the bk blog. I don’t know how well you can tell that my entry is made out of wire- sure- if you know my work, but if you don’t? Anyway, check out some of the other entries here. And here’s mine:
