In 2015, I participated in the Takoma Park Holiday Art Sale. It was my first holiday season as a business & I was so nervous. I could barely fill my table, but it was so successful. .
This weekend, I sold at the Takoma Park Holiday Art Sale again. I was stunned by how much my business has grown in just two years. I had a fantastic day & everyone that stopped by was wonderful!
.
I am so incredibly grateful for everyone who has supported my work & helped my business grow. It's because of you that I get to keep growing & doing work I love. Thank you. ❤️❤️

It's finally starting to feel like Christmas here in DC. There's a cold bite to the air, snow on the ground (sort of) & twinkling lights all around.

As the holidays draw near, I'm starting to wind down & get ready for a break with loved ones. To fully enjoy time with family, @meeklyyours will be closed Dec 18th–29th & any orders received after Dec 17th will ship Dec 30th.

Finding the perfect, one of a kind gift for everyone on your list can a big challenge—especially if travel has to be considered, too. Never fear! Creating your own wood ornaments is a great way to be creative & give gifts that are straight from the heart.
.
Today on the blog, I’m sharing my top tips for creating the perfect laser cut holiday ornament for the holidays.

During one of my most recent projects, I learned there are basically one hundred million types of #peonies. Ok. Not one hundred million. But A LOT. Over 3,000 😳 what the what?! @petalsbytheshore got to see a bunch of #americagrownflowers #alaskanpeonies in Homer Alaska as a featured florist at the @fieldtovasedinnertour. I am honored to say that I met Kelly when she was the florist for my wedding. She went above and beyond to help make our day super special. I love ❤️ watching her talent get recognized and I am eternally grateful for the love and support she gives to me and @lowelovecalligraphy. Just a little #floralfriday love. #lowelove #lowelovecalligraphy #handletterer #handlettering #handletteringpractice #mdhandletterer #mdhandlettering #mdcalligraphy #mdcalligrapher #ipadlettering #ipadprolettering #procreateapp #procreatelettering #adobesketch #watercolor #ipadwatercolor

I love the Christmas season–the lights, tasty treats & seeing loved ones–but there's more to Christmas.
.
The spirit of Christmas is centered in love, compassion & kindness. It is the spirit of Christ. Now & throughout year we can enjoy the feeling of Christmas as we show kindness & offer service to our friends & neighbors.
.
What holiday traditions do you have that allow you & your family to show kindness to others?

Growing up, I hated tomatoes. I loved ketchup and pasta sauce, but I couldn't stand tomatoes. Now, I have tomatoes every day on sandwiches and as snacks. Is there anything you used to hate and now love?

Thanks for the kind words! ★★★★★ "My sign was exactly what I wanted and done very quickly. I live in Alaska and it was shipped and received faster than I was expecting. I was in no rush for it and I was shocked when I got it in the the mail. The owner was super sweet and had great communication. Excellent service!" kellindarius #etsy #etsyshop #fivestarreview #housewares #homedecor #handletteredsign #sign #woodsign #wood #paintpen #acrylicpaint #lowelovecalligraphy #handlettering #mdhandlettering #calligraphy #mdcalligraphy #letteredwithlove #thankful http://etsy.me/2hZlWOW

I hope you have never felt hatred. I have felt anger, resentment & grief in my life, but not hatred. I have felt the weight & destructive power of negative feelings, but I can't imagine the heavy burden those who foster hatred willingly carry with them every day. .
In the dark hours of my life I have felt pained, worn & cynical. I felt downright awful. I wanted to lay down those feelings, but it was hard. But love eventually broke through.
.
Once I turned to the Lord & focused on loving others & myself again, my perspective changed. I felt happy, inspired & light. Those heavy burdens we're gone & I start to live my life again.

Lots of work in the studio today. I'm working on restocking inventory, planning for the week, reviewing details for tomorrow's pop-up at @npr & working on sketches for an exciting collaboration with @bluelacecakes. Whoo! It's going to be a busy week, but I'm pumped.

Sometimes the smallest reminders & kind words can make all the difference in someone's day.

I'm stocking up on inventory today before a busy month of holiday markets. A lot of time & effort goes into designing & cutting each piece, but sometimes I love to stop enjoy the details. This year, I have made so much progress in my craft & business. I can't wait to keep growing & sharing.

I love this time of year. I love the beautiful fall colors. I love an excuse to be warm & cozy. Most of all I love this time of year because it gives an opportunity to reflect on the year, celebrate successes, plan for the future & show gratitude for all that we have. In the thick of the small business hustle I try to take moments to be thankful. .
As the weather starts—hopefully— to chill & hearts start to warm, take a moment to share your gratitude with those wonderful people in your life that make a difference. Thank your family. Thank your clients. Thank your mailman. Thank your community.

Hot off the laser cutter! I'm super excited about my newest wood sign, “The Stolen Child.” This design is inspired by the writings of poet W. B. Yeats & is by far, my most complicated work to date. I'm thrilled to see it finally come to life. (Swipe for detail)

Come see “The Stolen Child” & dozens of amazing artwork during the 10x10 Invitational at @pyramidatlantic Nov 3rd–Dec 17th!

We each have our own unique talents. I love this idea that they are supremely precious, but we may have to hunt & dig for them within ourselves. .
I've been reading “Big Magic” for the last several weeks & I absolutely love it. Every time I read a chapter, I walk away feeling inspired by @elizabeth_gilbert_writer unique approach to creativity. The validation she gives to all of our unique endeavors is comforting & encouraging.

Being a creative, inspiration is key to creating good work. I love living & working in an incredible area that celebrates the arts. It had led so many great opportunities to connect with the creative community & grow myself & my business in ways I could never have imagined. .
Thank you to all of you that support, build up & create art. You are changing the world one day at a time.

Believing in yourself is hard. We all have lies we tell ourselves that hold us back—that make us feel unworthy, less than, too young, too old, inexperienced, doomed for failure—but they're lies. They hold us back from experiencing the incredible magic that happens when you truly believe in yourself & the work you are doing. You can take on the world. .
When have you felt that magic? What's keeping you you from feeling it again?

Happy Monday! It's a start to another busy week of projects & planning. However, despite my ever-growing to do lists, I feel like this week is kind of a blank slate. This week, I'm doing a deep dive into my business to make goals & figure out what's next. It's a process that is scary & overwhelming, but it's also exciting. Being reminded that my business has so much potential & can go in so many different directions is exciting & inspiring. It reminds me that I can do this & I can keep going.

It still doesn't feel like fall here in Maryland, but I love taking quiet moments to watch the changing leaves sway in the breeze. Fall leaves are my favorite part of the season & I'm endlessly inspired by the complexity & beauty nature creates.
.
What's your favorite part of fall?

I can't believe we're already in Q4. This week, I'm working on lots of planning. I'm finalizing details for my laser cutting workshop with @ssletters & @catylator on Saturday, applying to holiday markets, creating new holiday designs & reading through the new @risingtidesociety guide to figure out some solid business planning to make 2018 even better. It's shaping up to be a busy, productive week.

What's on your schedule for the week?

Looking across the internet, it's so easy to find success stories of businesses & people doing great things. It can be intimating & discouraging. What if I can't do great things like them? What if all I can ever do are little things?
.
While doing great things is....well, GREAT, most people don't start that way. Most people started with small things in their sphere of influence that eventually grew into into something bigger & greater. .
Start where you are now with small things you can do in great ways & even if you only ever do small things, they mean the world to those blessed to receive them. .

Playing with the new @procreate #procreate4 with a #watercolor tutorial by @ipadlettering. I don’t have all of her brushes yet so I was working with what I have. It’s a start. 🙈#letteringpractice #ipadlettering #ipadprolettering #handletterer #handlettering #mdhandletterer #mdhandlettering #moderncalligraphy #cantsleep

Another client with an insanely adorable pup! But if you look past him, you'll see the special vow project I did for @kyleen.clarke. Thank you Kyleen for your patience as I worked on #handlettering your vows. I love the way they turned out with the frames from @framebridge. @catprint_llc was also SO helpful through the process. Definitely my go to printing company. #catprinted

Change is scary & it takes a lot of courage to accept it & move forward. It would be so much easier if everything just stayed the same, but you'd never go anywhere. You may fail or fly, but you won't know unless you try.

Failure can be crushing & it's easy to want to quit & curl up in bed forever. I have those feelings countless times, but every time I try to learn from an experience, I come out stronger, wiser & better prepared to face something even harder.

What's the best lesson you learned from a failure?

Creating a wholly new project is a feat & a great learning experience. I learned innumerable lessons while working on the Meekly Yours wedding collection. Today on the blog, I’m sharing five of the most important lessons I learned while working on this project (link in bio). #4 definitely make the biggest difference throughout my business.

Crafting a beautiful wedding suite is all about the details. Whether it's specialized printing or hand drawn envelope liners, unique details help push invitations to the next level

The Meekly Yours wedding collection launches this Friday so stay tuned for the big reveal. I can't wait for you to see them.

Plans change is fact of life, but I have learned this lesson even more as a small business owner. No matter how many to do lists or plans you make, something is going to change & it takes patience & flexibility to keep moving forward. It's hard to readjust, but things typically work out—sometimes even better than they would have orginally.
Now to count down the hours before I can finally pick up the samples for my wedding collection.🤞
