Invitation Samples

Mondays in January means lots of wedding invitation samples going out. Every morning, after reading my email, making a schedule for the day, and drinking my coffee, I get any print orders and sample requests ready to ship. I like to get as much administrative stuff out of the way as possible and leave the rest of the day free to create new things. 

After dropping these at the post office, I also stopped by our local art supply store, Bean's, to pick up some more Arches cold press watercolor paper. I spent the rest of the afternoon working on my European Villages calendar - today I was working on Balzers, Liechtenstein. Calendars are so time consuming, because you need TWELVE completed pieces to have a finished product, but I've always enjoyed having calendars. I love thinking of a theme, then matching the image to the month.  

I also enjoyed the last of my macaroons from my class yesterday afternoon!
