Mommy + Daddy = Baby

I have been conceptualizing the images below in my head a lot. Think it would make an awesome set of screenprints for Violet's room if I ever get my studio up and running again -- ok, might hold off on the egg and sperm one, but...

It's just conceptual, but her name works SO well! I wonder if the venn diagram should be vertical?

So Kevin is off at the gym and Violet is fast asleep. Ernie and I are hanging out in the living room and I realized I have been such a slacker and I want to get back in the swing of things.

Yeah, it's been a bit crazy here with some massive changes...what have I been up to?

First and foremost, a project Kevin and I have been working on together with the help of amazing family and friends: raising our 11-week old daughter, Violet.

Over the past months, I've been doing some design work for Abbott's Frozen Custard here in Massachusetts; The Bridge Center in Bridgewater, Massachusetts; a new bookstore opening in Lexington, Massachusetts in December, The Elephant's Trunk; some wedding invites...Though I link to these sites, most of my work is print work, so nothing is really on these sites, so I need to get this design work up on my website. Oh yeah, I need to work on the design of that, too.

Melanie and I have taken some time off, but we were working on some stuff for July Twenty Fourth...we did a logo for the UConn Master Gardener Program (they had a contest and chose OURS!, but we still haven't seen it on their site yet...) and one for Connecticut Children's Hospital's REACH Program.

I've also been working on some holiday cards, but those are under wraps for a while, because...well, I'll follow up with that later too.

I have some other fun projects in mind, but I need to get Violet to nap during the day a bit so I can get them done!

It's also fall and it reminds me that Anisha of Anisha Palmer Photography and I had printed some recipe cards for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Email me your mailing address if you want a copy.

Back in the Game

So I promised I would get some more work up here since I have been slacking. This is the last piece I printed in the studio before I shut it down (hopefully the "shut down" is temporary, and that within the next couple of years we'll have a space in our home for me to work so I don't have to rent a space). In the meantime, we are in for some big changes in our household come August, so working in the studio with the chemicals just wasn't cutting it.

This latest piece is called Aurora, 2010. It's an edition of 48...a two color silkscreen on paper, and it pretty much gives away the changes in our house. It measures 8.5x11 inches. It can be found for sale on my etsy site.

It's been a while...

Just checking in. Working on some fun projects before I shut down the studio on March 15th. Will post and update more after that date.

This is my year to...

So I have been on this mad cleaning streak this weekend. For those of you who know me, this is not common, so I am embracing it and mostly staying in and decluttering.

I did make Kevin take a ride out to Honey Pot Hill Farms this weekend -- it's one of their last apple weekends of the season, and I wanted to take them up on their "Buy Two, Get One Free" deal.

On the way home I asked if we could detour to Whole Foods, since it was the closest grocery store on the way. We stopped and picked up a few things so I could make a chicken and wild rice stew and as Kevin was checking out, in true Bethany fashion, I was picking up free recipes and coupons I would probably never use. I'm looking through the book of coupons I picked up and noting that it's pretty cool they use the font Stanyan, one of my favorites, and noting the coupons I should cut out just in case we go to Whole Foods before March 31, but I know it's probably a waste of time because Whole Foods isn't that close, even though I do like the (slightly overpriced) store and their values.

So we are pulling into the driveway, and I am looking at the recipes, saying to myself, "will I ever make these?" I am about to throw all of them except the root vegetable stew out when something catches my eye..."wait, that's my writing! That's MY writing! FG Bethany is being used for Whole Foods marketing materials!"

"Pretty cool," I thought, as I noted another three things that would be added to the pile of Bethany clutter...
