This is the second year of our collaborative calendar. From pole to pole, we explored life on the ice and came up with seven scenes of subtle textures and muted colors. A serene view of the critters who survive the subzero …
The 2012 Uncommon Climate Calendar pays homage to the enduring diversity of species living in one of the rarest landscapes of our planet, the Arctic. This signed and numbered limited edition calendar marks the second annual collaboration of the two artists who created it.
Each page becomes a 5×7 limited edition artprint to frame + keep. seven scenes in all. printed on 100% cotton archival paper by hand on two antique letterpress machines – with love.

I have been invited and have accepted the invitation to teach letterpress at the Makerie in 2012! I took Lizzy House‘s pattern design class last year and we put on a Firefly Handmade market in conjunction with the event as well, so I am thrilled to become a part of it from another angle this year. It is experience you almost cannot explain in words!

Yesterday morning, I awoke under a new feedsack quilt of my Granny’s creation. And it dawned on me that I left off about a year ago tweeting a Feedsack a Day. Today, I will pick up where I left off – May 31st, 2010 #151 of 365 where I featured a favorite as the last of a series from the {kimmymade} Flickr photostream – a tiny sugar sack with red and pink geometric pattern and atomic starbursts.

Daily Feedsack feature No. 151 of 365 for 2010 http://ow.ly/1OQEw ending this kimmymade month on a SUPER high note.

I may even go double or nothing as I went this spring to bdp south and came back with a mountain of new feedsacks!

ps. I am newly addicted to instagram for the iPhone!



Party Tales + Party Pails

My little guy’s Scales & Stripes: Go Fish Party can now be seen on the pages of Parents Magazine! Hooray for the April Issue. I am also super excited to say that: inspired by this interest in the birthday parties for my little one, I will soon be offering sets to help you get the party started too.

Think letterpress invitations, favor packaging, thank you notes, and other details, complete with ideas, planning pointers, activities and how-tos. What do you think? What are some of your favorite party themes?



March is My Month

I love to open a Google Analytics Alert to find a sweet blog post on something I hold dear to my heart. Thank you Kathya of CHOCOLOCATERIA! March is my month too! And you reminded me that I wanted to write an in depth post about each month explaining the inspiration behind each composition this year. I guess I need to get started.
