Sage Advice

Recently I was contacted by Faith, a professional food writer for Apartment Therapy. She is getting married soon and wanted an icon that is a mix of elements from her and her fiance's life. Since she's a food writer, a lot of their budget will be going towards food (oh how I wish I could go to that reception), so that element had to be present in the image. Also, they have a cute story about sage from when they were first getting to know one another. Their religious beliefs are very important to them, so the wine and the bread has a double meaning. Faith was a pleasure to work with and I am really pleased with the results. Congratulations, you guys, for finding each other!

I was wondering what has been keeping you so busy... well, i really like this one, too. simple, attractive, and meaningful. sometimes the simple looking cuts are some of the most difficult, and i am sure this one took some thought? well done. how did she like it?

cindy! i might just have to start collecting one of everything you make. you are simply incapable of making something that is not heart-wrenchingly amazing.

I love to see your commissions because I love seeing what you make out of people's wishes and requests. I think this one is really wonderful (as is all your work).

Faith here....

We love it! We're using it for our invitations, and I am working the sage element of the papercut into shower invites, the menu for the wedding, and even into my dress.

I'm having some linen custom-printed (white on white) by food.flower.style with the sage pattern. It's fun to work subtle details like that into what will be ultimately a very simple wedding. Good food and friends!

Thank you Cindy!!
