recent work + update

although it may not appear like it, things are still moving along with the shops. i am mostly focusing on custom orders right now and summer wedding season is about to come to a close. new things are being dreamed of and developed, so stay tuned for a few more updates in late august. i’m excited about what is to come.

a recent project will soon be listed in the shop. a client asked me to letter a prayer that was read during their wedding ceremony. i loved the idea and thought others might want something similar created. i love the uniqueness custom projects have to offer. no one else will have anything just like this because it is personally sentimental to my client and her husband. hope you enjoy!

recently inspired: valentine’s day

just the other day, i decided to put together a little bit of inspiration for valentine’s day. with a little twist on the traditional holiday palette, i combined handmade envelopes, hand-cut hearts and painted valentines. both the handwritten valentine and the painted valentine are samples of new items in the shop. also in store are a few other exciting products soon to come. i hope you are inspired by love. enjoy!

recently wrapped: christmas gifts

i hope your holidays were filled with warmth and the closeness of friends and family.

in wrapping this year, i largely kept it simple with a few special touches. i also added in some greenery and fun ribbons that were found at a local craft stores. of course it’s always fun to personalize packages with a special written touch, so i hand-lettered favorite phrases or christmas carol lyrics onto a few as well.

here’s to all 2014 has in store. happy holidays!

recently featured: irrelephant

about a month ago, i had the honor of collaborating with the wonderful joanna ballentine and molly stilley of irrelephant. they were creating a inspirational shoot for a non-traditional thanksgiving table and i was able to hand-letter a menu and placecards. the incredibly talented ginny au styled the shoot and the table was rustic, simple and a beautiful option for the holiday season.

below are a few images of both the place cards and menu, and a few shots from joanna of the day. head on over here to see the rest of the shoot for yourself. thanks so much to all the ladies for the chance to be involved in such a fun shoot!

outdoor spring wedding: details

back in the spring, i had the chance to help two dear friends style their wedding. they asked me to help with almost every part of the execution of their day and i was so honored to be involved in each and every detail. from menus and programs to flowers, bouquets and seating charts, everything was handwritten and attended to with care to make sure their day was perfect. even though the weather was unexpectedly cold and rainy, it was still a beautiful union to behold. below are pictures captured from the extremely wonderful and talented, mandy busby. it was a pleasure to finally meet and work with her. enjoy!

chalkboard compositions

many times, i look for potential in unexpected places. such was the case the other day at a favorite store when i stumbled upon geometric shaped chalk in the kids section. i thought it would be fun to shoot and also great to try out on my chalkboard. so, i searched through my stash of favorite quotes and compiled a couple of compositions together. enjoy!
