Wedding Invites in the Works

Ciao, Ciao!

I've been blog delinquent for quite a while now. February seems to kick me in the butt every year. So much to do during this dreary month.

The wedding is now 3 months away! Matt and I finished up our wedding registries today with a trip to Crate & Barrel. We are both big fans of their overall modernist design sensibility. We had a great time touring around the store with the gun in hand.

We also went into Oak Park to visit the Paper Source.  We picked up all the necessary envelopes and paper so I can get the wedding invites printed and put together. I made a prototype a little while back, which is seen here.  I'm now working on enclosures and a little pocket fold doo-dad to send everything off in.  I'll be sure to post a photo when they are all finished and in final form.

In other news, my show at Kortman's is up until March 19th. Stop by anytime the store is open (10-6 M thru Sat) to check it out.

Arrivederci friends!

Go Guide Write Up

I had a nice little write up of my show in the Rockford Register Star this morning. It's fun to see my work in print like this. I'm really looking forward to tonight's opening and being surrounded by friends, family and my art!

After more than a foot of snow and subzero temperatures, school has been closed for the last 2 days. Though it's a little frustrating, (I have so much more material to cover with my AP Art History kiddies before the May 3rd exam!) this mini-break could not have come at a better time. I have been able to finish up 3 more pieces for tomorrow's opening and caught up on my sleep and house work.

I got a sneak peek of the gallery this week and it looks fab! I can't tell you how exciting it is to have an entire room filled with only my art!

Doc Slafkosky, curator of JR Kortman Gallery, wrote a great little explanation of my show and the work on the website. Be sure to check it out.
