moved to tears

From there to here.  A moving day booklet.
I was moved me to tears when I  opened an envelope with a "we have moved" change of address card in the mailbox just the other day.  

I had done the artwork and sent it off knowing that it would be used for this, however, when it arrived, I was so touched at how beautifully it had been executed.   A little illustrated story, based on the "green acres" is the life for me,  so cleverly composed by my client.

The printing, the paper the layout and the little gingham ribbon that tied it all together touched me.  I felt so proud of this, of the entire little package of love.

The last page is one of my favorite drawings, this lovely home sweet home.  

Can you feel the love of a new address in the countryside?   I was truly moved to tears.

michelle,
truly, that is what I adore about my work - I am surrounded by remarkable clients who think of such clever ways for my artwork.
I am thinking a book is very near and dear this year!
keeping my fingers crossed, that is when they are not drawing, painting, cleaning or driving!
thanks for your kind words.

Your work "moves" me... What a unique way to chronicle where you have been and hopes for the future.
These folks must have thrilled with what you created for them.
I do see a book in your future Patricia~

As always Patricia your work is so charming and the book is such an original idea!

Oh my goodness- it is BEAUTIFUL! Once again I'm speechless with your art my friend.
A very special way to announce the change of a home. The time and care your client took to send this card out-is a sure way to say "how special you are to me and not to lose touch".
Yes a book would be nice!

So charming and creative. I love this idea, it could be translated to wedding programs and invites too methinks.

I love this. What a great idea to let friends and family in on your story as to where you are moving. Just lovely. I adore your word. It's is perfection. You are so talented. I really don't know how you do it. I love every piece you show.

Simply beautiful, Patricia! I wish I had known you a year ago when we moved and had come up with something so clever.

That is really lovely!

Rachel said...

It's gorgeous! What a lovely job you did with the art and your clients put it all together so well. You should be proud.

Oh that is so beautiful! Your work really is exquisite. We become so emotionally attached to our homes (at least I do) so it is only fitting to announce such a change in a beautiful and creative way. I wish I had been as excited about my recent move as your client was. Instead, I still feel stuck mourning my former home.

I am sure you feel very gratified seeing the joy your art brings to others lives.

Thank you for visiting my blog. What a pretty country house -- I would like to live in that house! I see you are a fan of Jane Austen, I hope you saw my post about the Pride & Prejudice movie.
Cheers,

This is so creative and chic. What a fabulous idea. Can you imagine the swank housewarming party?

Can't wait to see your own coffee table book of illustrations and thoughts someday...I'll be first in line to buy it!

To go all "business" on you for a moment - this is a fabulous marketing tool for you, too.

It it just beautiful. Very creative and deftly rendered.

Patricia,

Your illustrations are really so beautiful. Have you ever thought of creating a children's book or a book of illustrations in general? The booklet is simply gorgeous.

Cheers,
