I was recently contacted by Mr. Teddy Gentry about creating a website for his new coin shop located on the South end of the Alabama Fan Club & Museum. They already had a logo and a brochure (see above), so I designed this site to complement their established branding.
I also designed a few cover photos to liven up The Buffalo Nickel Facebook Page I started for them:
Fort Payne Film Society and Studio 3 are hosting Week 3 of their Vintage Movie Night tonight at Vintage 1889. They’re going to be showing Stars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and the movie starts at 7PM!
Tonight’s Vintage dinner special will be the Han-Burger on Leia’s buns with Yoda soda.
Also, my husband, Jared Cushen, will be playing in the next room from 7-10, and, well, I’m a fan :).
Hope to see you there!
- Join the Vintage Movie Night group to stay up to date on future showings.
- Like Studio 3 on Facebook because they offer a huge variety of dance and theatre classes, and your child will thank you – Trust me! (Check out The Little Princess, Stars Without Limits, and Artists Without Limits classes. They’re awesome!)
- And…while you’re at it, Like the Fort Payne Film Society page, so they’ll keep showing these awesome movies.
Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
I finally created this design because I’ve had so many people ask to buy the one (see below) I hand made for my wedding, and, well, since we got married in our front yard, the sign is in less than pristine condition. (Though I did manage to touch it up enough to look presentable at my beautiful new Sister-in-Law’s wedding last weekend!)
“All men have stars,” he answered, “but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others, they are no more than little lights in the sky. And for still others, for scholars, they are problems. For my businessman, they were wealth. But all these stars are silent. You – you alone – will have stars as nobody else has them.”
“What are you trying to say?”
“In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night…You, only you, will have stars that can laugh!!”
And he laughed again.
“And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you’ll be glad you’ve known me. You will always be my friend. You’ll feel like laughing with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure…And your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them, ‘Yes, it’s the stars: they always make me laugh!’ And they will think you are crazy. It will be a very shabby trick that I shall have played on you…”
This is a card I made to go with the graduation gift I got for one of our interpreters/receptionists at the office.
She’s graduating from high school this year, and I wanted something quirky to give her. I found this keychain on PelliAndMe’s Etsy shop (get your own here), and she was willing to work with me to customize it a bit.
I absolutely love how everything turned out!
