terrariums for sale

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

I spent the weekend making some terrariums for christmas gifts. Terrariums are great for offices or any small space that needs a little green beauty added to it and they are very very easy to maintain. I made a few extra in case any of you are interested in having one of your own. Email me and I’ll send better pictures and pricing. Local purchases only.

one year + giveaway

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

I can hardly believe it, but it’s been one year since I started fancy seeing you here. So much has happened since then.…I’ve written more than I ever thought I would—137 posts to be exact. I’ve set up my etsy shop. Oh, and one other little thing, I got the guts to quit my job. It’s really been the best year and I look forward to expanding my blog and my shop. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

As a thank you, I’m giving away a set of  letterpressed cards from my shop to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment on your favorite post so far. I’ll announce the winner next week.

2011 letterpress calendar

Monday, November 15th, 2010

I participated in the Pyramid Atlantic Letterpress calendar once again this year with other members of the Pyramid Atlantic letterpress community. Each month was designed by a different artist. I chose April because it is my birth month and decided to focus on its birthstone, the diamond. It is a 2 color design using silver and magenta ink. There are still some calendars available for purchase. It’s $25 this year, which is a steal if you ask me! They are working on having it for sale on the Pyramid website but until then Update: Available for order on the website or you can purchase it at ArtSpring 821 Wayne Avenue, Silver Spring MD). All proceeds go to Pyramid Atlantic Art Center.

the sarah project: update

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Hi everyone! Just wanted to update you on my whereabouts, I recently decided to quit my day job and pursue freelancing full-time as well as designing and selling my own handmade goodies! Which lucky for you means more blogging and crafts from me! Now for some shameless self-promotion…I am available starting now for any freelance opportunities, especially fancy invitation designs which are my specialty. Check out all my work here.

With that said, I’m sorry to say there will be no more Sarah Project posts since that was done in my office and just won’t feel the same if I doing it alone and at home.

personal business cards

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Since I recently did a small post on business card inspiration I thought I would share the fancy seeing you here business cards and tags. I letterpressed these cards and tags using a Vandercook press. And now for some shameless self-promotion: If you’re interested in having your own letterpress business cards I’m always looking for new projects.


baby shower invites

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

I recently designed some baby shower invites for a friend. The sex of the baby was unknown so I tried to stick with a neutral color palette and design. The invites were printed on a laser printer then fabric scraps were attached and sewn on to form mini bunting. I was very happy with the results!
