leon's announcements









the ever talented stephanie made these announcements for leon. she hand strung those tiny garlands, printed facsimiles of his footprints with a gocco, made envelope liners, and hand pasted every single line of text. i am in awe.

erica - i rethinking the shoe question from a few days ago. have you ever checked out esska (http://esskashoes.com/index.php?pathID=1_6_7)? I haven't tried them on before, but they look great and are sold by one of my favorite shoes stores in seattle (resoul).

leanne,
these look really promising, and how great is it that the designer was trained as an architect. the price point is pretty nice, too. i wonder if anyone's tried them on?
