2016: day 293 For the love of Madison

Last weekend I spent some time in Madison wondering around the Capitol with my dear sister. We went up to the observation deck to enjoy the view, and happily strolled the streets in the October sunshine. At the Capitol you can still get postcards for a a quarter, and that includes tax so I bought a few.

2016: day 275 color theory

Got this giant box (100 postcards) of Pantone color chip postcards and I'm sending the first one off into the world today. The past 5 years I have LOVED this color. It's the color on my dining room walls, (inspired by a trip to Nicaragua) it's currently the feature color of my personal branding, (Type of Jane) and it's worked it's way into my wardrobe in multiple ways.

week 28: a little letterpress love

I'm starting to package and ship the reminder of my Kickstarter rewards, so I've started to grasp what is remainder so I sent off a few 'remainder' postcards with messages to friends.

week 28: 4th of July remembered

I was lucky enough to take an impromptu trip to NYC for fourth of July weekend because I have friends to crash with. Seems fitting to send this as their thank you.

In case you've noticed that the picture format/dimensions have changed, that's because my cell phone died last weekend and I was forced to unexpectedly pick out something new, as I was phoneless. New images are courtesy of the Nexus 5x; so far I like it, but I don't really care for the proportions of their images. I was a huge fan of the 'widescreen' feeling proportions of the images from the LG G3. (PS I don't like change.)

incoming mail!

I have been remiss as of late with the blog, focusing on my Letters from Cuba letterpress project, but today I received vintage Paris postcards found in Paris from one Megan ad a postcard from House on the Rock from the other Megan so I had to share!

week 18: Van Gogh's bedrooms, hand lettering

went to see the Van Gogh Bedrooms exhibit at the Art Institute in Chicago and it resulted in a lot of bedroom postcards; can you tell that these are all different?
