It’s been 10 years since I printed and cut my first set of stationery, 7 years since I launched the first version of lotusandash.com (a blog), and 2 since I launched this version of the site. It’s also been a week since I made one of the biggest decisions in my life so far — one that is sure to see a lot more paper and design from LOTUS&ASH come into the world. I’m excited. Very excited.
2015 is going to be a good one - there's a lot of work to be done - and I’ll keep you posted here as the adventure unfolds.
For now, here’s a look back at 2014 – a journey that included the pleasure of working with a record of eight (8!) couples on their wedding paper suites, a paper journey to Japan, and continuing to work with the most passionate small business owners.
- some highlights -
map-wrapped letterpress invitations for a sonoma wedding
incorporating watercolor into this “desert meets san francisco” chic wedding
planning a “beachelorette” and designing the wedding paper suite for one of my closest and dearest friends
completing the projects for 8 weddings at the end of summer
… and celebrating with a trip to ojai
visiting morita washi paper in kyoto
exploring naoshima and solo time with yayoi kusama’s pumpkin and monet’s lillies
the first print with my evolution press … and the promise of using a real press in 2015
These are just a few of the things that have made 2014 memorable — and, safe to say, the best yet. 2015, here we come.
