Trick or Treat? Yes, please!

I love this time of year…sweater weather, colorful mums, hot cider and, of course, Halloween!

I’ve created some Halloween-themed envelopes, chalkboards, place cards & signs.  Enjoy!

And here’s my favorite Halloween project this season….a GIANT chalkboard (4′ x 3′).  My daughter Hannah (a professional illustrator) sketched out the skeleton for me (took her, like, 5 minutes!)

The “Finespun” style looks GREAT on large envelopes!  My apprentice Hitch agrees.
