I'm so exited to preview some new products that are now available in my Etsy shop.  Tons of new stamp options.  If you're looking for something custom, in addition to my custom address stamps I'm now offering custom couples stamps, monogram stamps, and initial stamps.  BUT I'm also happy to be offering some more generic stamps.  These are great for making your own stationery, invitations, and cards, as well as for scrapbooking, packaging, etc. etc.  Endless uses.  Take a look!

I recently completed the calligraphy for a wedding suite for a client in North Carolina.  The client actually wanted me to replicate my own wedding invitation in gray and white.  Obviously I was happy to oblige!

Change is in the air tonight.  I got the itch to make some major edits to my blog.  Take a peek around to check out the changes and additions and let me know what you think!  I'm still tweaking some things, so I'd love to hear your feedback! Pin It

It's clear that my absence from my website/blog has been pretty significant over the past few months.  I am blessed to have been very busy lettering invitations, stamps, business logos, and just about everything else under the sun, but I am excited to announce that my neglect is also the result of a new business endeavor that has been keeping me quite busy!

In June I was contacted by the talented team at Bella Figura.  Bella is a letterpress company based out of New York that specializes in printing the most amazing letterpress invitations.  They offer the largest collection of letterpress wedding invitations anywhere in the world.  Their designs are stunning.  That's not an opinion, that is an absolute fact.  ( is technically an opinion, but I swear you'll agree with me!)  Their unbelievable team offers designs that meet the needs of the modern bride, the vintage bride, the chic bride, the traditional bride, and every bride in between.  They print with vintage presses in elegant inks and foils on gorgeous paper.  Essentially, they are the Mecca of invitations.  I realize I've digressed from the story, but I could honestly talk about their invitations for days.

Back to the point :: The powers-that-be at Bella got their hands on some of my work and I am delighted to announce that they asked me to join their talented team.  Starting in 2013 six of my hands will be offered to their customers.  All of the styles will be available to customers as both full and accent calligraphy.  I can't say (or show) much more until the newest collection is released, but I can assure you everything coming soon is absolutely wonderful.

It is still so surreal to know that my designs will be offered alongside those of some of the most talented designers and calligraphers who inspired me to start lettering myself.  I can't even begin to explain how overjoyed I am to start this new adventure.  Until I can give you a peek at my personal designs, I'll leave you with some gorgeous images of some of their current invitations...

I recently had the opportunity to show my work to the fabulous members of the Nashville Wedding Planners Group.  The June meeting featured myself along with a handful of other local wedding vendors.

Prior to the meeting they asked me to letter an invitation to be sent out to all of the planners.  For the invitation itself I wanted something fun and unique, so I went with the Harper style of lettering.  For the envelopes I chose a bright green ink and mixed the Harper and Ford styles.

The meeting itself was a wonderful opportunity to show off some of my latest work to this group of fabulous planners who are making waves through the Nashville wedding scene.  I am lucky to have some gorgeous images of the evening courtesy of the talented Kristyn Hogan.

Thanks to the NWPG for asking me to get involved! Pin It

I recently did a full-calligraphy shower invitation for some ladies who were hosting a baby shower for a beautiful mother-to-be expecting an adorable little girl this fall.  They were looking for an classic invitation where the calligraphy was the main design element.  We decided light pink and gold would create an elegant feel while still feeling dainty and reflecting the occasion.  Here's what we came up with!
