Barbara Wiggins journals

I recently saw these Barbara Wiggins journals and albums at Cursive and instantly thought they’d make AMAZING guestbooks and wedding albums…she’s got a bunch of colors but the crackled metallic finishes are my favorite.

Engagement shoot: Katie + Michael


It so refreshing to see an engagement shoot that ISN’T shot when its nice and warm outside…I prefer winter and fall myself so these totally hit the spot.  These have such a carefree look about them.

Studio tour: d. Sharp

studio 1

Name: Denise Sharp
Location: Portland, Oregon
Company: d. Sharp

What is your aesthetic?
My work is vintage inspired –  little paper luxuries to mark an occasion. I am a collector and fascinated by old ephemera, and like a mix of vintage charm and modern polish.

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic?
A lot of the functional elements I use for storage or to organize are vintage finds – a tin honeycomb from a winery, an old wooden screen stand to hold ribbon, vintage film canisters and baking pans {anything tin!} to hold stuff, old medical cabinets.

Favorite part of your studio?
The heat!  We built the two story studio and it’s insulated – our old house isn’t.

Where do you go for inspiration?
My drawers of ephemera  and stacks of old books, fun stuff with husband and kids, Powell’s Books, the flea market, a few favorite shops, coffee {meet friends or people watch}, sketchbook. Time at the gym helps me mentally sort through and clarify things.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without?
I never thought I would say this, but my computer.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to?
There are some things I would love to have in the studio, but am pretty happy with what I have.

Anything else we should know?
Having scaled back the wholesale side of the business after my second child, I would love to license a paper/gift line. Designing new pieces is the best part  and I would be thrilled to have an opportunity to spend more time doing it.
