one of my favourite things
Great design, exquisite paper and beautiful printing – what more could a girl want?
Well, if you haven't trained as a graphic designer you might not get quite so excited, but anyone can appreciate the craftsmanship of the work produced by Lynn Russell of Satsuma Press.
The photo above is of one of her many card designs. Classic, simple and beautiful. My kind of design. I've bought four sets so far. And there are several more I've got my eye on! I managed to part with a few, sending them with a short note to special people in my life. And they too appreciated the quality of the cards.
Lynn has also produced some fantastic 2008 Calendars. Designers love calendars because they offer a great opportunity to showcase their different design and illustrations. So, it was no surprise that as soon as Lynn released her limited edition calendars I snapped up three right away!
I'm keeping one for me and two are gifts. I like the idea that the recipient will look at it every day and also think of me and how much I love them. (That's the theory anyway!)
Each month features a lovely nature-inspired illustration and a simple block of dates.
I've just shown you three of my favourites.
