Starting this past weekend, all ages were welcome for Crafty Morning to create a garland of glittery leaves. Participants were provided 5 faux leaves, painted a layer of glue and glittered with a variety of fall colors. The leaves were strung to a line of jute for a super fun autumn display.

Artist Spotlight: Cherry Laurel Studio

Cherry Laurel Studio

Our cooperative boutique has a little something for everyone, and we are pleased to have these fun letterpress cards from Cherry Laurel Studio! Elizabeth Kotz, the designer behind the cards, is an Atlanta graphic designer and letterpress printer with a 1500-pound secret stashed in her studio: a 100-year old Chandler & Price platen printing press named Venus. Elizabeth lives for the luscious feel of ink on paper and revels in every bit of the handcrafted dimensionality that letterpress offers.

She’s traveled the world, but remains a Southern girl through and through. When not in the studio, Elizabeth can be found baking cupcakes or sitting on the porch with a glass of tea or whiskey and plotting her next soirée.

Stop by to check out her work and choose from a variety of quirky and fun cards that surely will be perfect for your next occasion!
