| I’m Glad

This summer has been hard on Ivy—her best friend moved to Texas. She has been working hard on lots of projects to send that way (most of them oversized and 3-D, so Cam, prepare to fill that ranchhouse with some fancy pieces from a bonified Brooklyn artiste.) This one was nice and envelope sized, and I was so smitten with her colorful typography I scanned and printed a few more out. (I kind of want to gold foil some!) We thought it would be fun to send these to friends while we skipped town ourselves for a few weeks. I had a stack of friendship bracelets I had picked up in Mexico which made the perfect accent.

Ivy is a more of a fine artist and was pretty horrified by the idea of mass producing her art—she wanted to handwrite and customize each card.  After a hearty debate, she acquiesced to custom signatures, and I love the little logo she came up with.  While I was trying to configure some complicated hole punched/sewn-in/looped through approach for attaching the bracelets, Ivy smacked some tape around the back. Simple and perfect.  Oliver woke up just in time to slobber some envelopes closed, so it was a real team effort.  In conclusion, to anyone reading: I’m glad we are friends!

    I hope you saw my instagram of how excited Jane was about her surprise package… Because she was thrilled. We’re working on something for Ivy so we can get this pen-pal thing rolling. Also, we have had a lot of moving friends too, it is hard on little (and big) hearts. Was it Millie that moved?

      I LOVED that picture. Jane is so cute. Yep, Millie moved. Very hard on little and big hearts too.

    Also I could not tell that the card was a print! I hope that eases Ivy’s worries.

    Ivy is going to surpass every artist in our family by the time she is 8.
