A Wall of Recognition

How very humbling it was to have our company, Driscoll Design, honored in one of our favorite, hip stores recently! One of our long-time customers, Greenwood Sip & Ship in Seattle, took the painstaking time and attention to design a special Driscoll Design wall which presents our cards and story.  Store manager, Jerad Allen, also recreated our Mother's Day Butterflies card into 3-dimensional paper sculptures (with hand-applied gold glitter!) which where placed along the entire top wall to create a magical effect.  They looked as if they would simply fly right off of the wall.  Visitors to this year's biggest yearly Greenwood Art Walk were in awe when they stepped into the store!  

Sip & Ship has two popular locations, one in Ballard and the other, of course, on Greenwood in Seattle.  They have been in business for over 15 years and continue to thrive by providing mailing services, finely brewed espresso, house made treats and tasteful gifts which are both on trend and timeless (much like Driscoll Design's cards!)  Sip & Ship's owner, Diana Naramore, has been nominated as Finalist for Woman Business Owner of the year 2017!  For more information about this fantastic store, visit https://www.sipandship.com/

Our Hearts Are A-Flutter!

Wow!! I am so honored and flattered that the editor of stunning Flutter Magazine asked me to create a special "Flutter Paper" page for their 10th issue! Like, wha'?!

Each edition of Flutter Magazine has a "Flutter Paper" page- a visually inspiring mixed media print that reflects the breathtaking designs and color palettes that steal the show in the featured weddings of every issue. As the editor states, it's "Designed in collaboration with admired artists from around the world, these perforated pages are easily removable and repurposable." Readers are encouraged to frame them, wrap up a pretty package or two, craft paper flowers - whatever they fancy!"

In return, each artist (like yours truly), along with a snapshot of their work, is mentioned within the editor's letter at the beginning of the publication. Each artist's work is credited on the back side of the printed artwork.

If you're not familiar with Flutter, it's a quarterly, high-end, fine art, print publication with national distribution in the United States through Barnes & Noble as well as select independent retailers.

All pre-order magazines will ship on Thursday, June 9 and will begin appearing in stores the week of June 20. 

We're so excited!!

 My final artwork for Flutter Issue #10. It highlights my watercolor illustrations as well as my obsession for flora, fauna and science charts. It also reflects Flutter's article on the wedding of Ivy and Keith in  Beaulieu Garden . I added grape vines because one of the famous aspects of this venue is the twinkling light vine trellis that everyone dined under and the surrounding vineyards.

A Caravan Christmas

We were honored that The Caravan Shop, a beautiful store in Ann Arbor, Michigan, chose us to create their recent custom holiday card. They applied elements from our Joyeux Noel Ornaments card, like the pine nettle garland with red berries, to their painted window display and hung ornaments that they sold in their store to replace the ornament illustration that was on our original card design. A clever and beautiful interpretation!
