hush hush holidays

The thing about Christmas is that until the big day, things have to be hush hush hush... But these little guys have been helping me out with a few things recently...

Now if only they'd help me pack my suitcases for my trip home for the holidays...

quilted website promo

Last month, I did some design work for a co-worker of mine, Heike Kapp. Like a lot of creative people, she has so many other talents and interests beyond her day job. One of these for Heike is quilting. She only started the craft a couple of years ago, but is already a very skilled quilter. She's also one of the kindest people you'll ever meet.

I created some business cards and postcards for her, to help promote her website, where she showcases and sells her quilts.

She had tons of great quilts to choose from for this project--everything from more traditional designs to quilts that include fabric transfers of original photographs. In the end, we decided to focus on one quilt in particular, because of the bright colours and the amazing detailing.

Be sure to check out Heike's website to see (and maybe even buy!) some of her lovely fabric art.

One of my photos was recently selected from my flickr to be part of the fourth edition of the Schmap New York Guide.

Schmap integrates maps with photos from "real" people (ie. not necessarily travel photographers), so you can get a sneak peek of the places you might plan to visit.

My photo is of pickles and cheesecake served up at Carnegie Deli.

Mmm, pickles and cheesecake.
