Good thing I started these early because they have taken me weeks to finish 🤦🏻♀️🎄. Now to run off to the post office to buy stamps because of course I didn't have any extra laying around. I'm super great at holidaying *sarcasm*. 😂
These delicate cameo seals are what my little Jane Austen loving heart is made of! I can’t say enough about @waxseals for bringing all my wax seal dreams to life! It’s literally my favorite add on for invitations suites and I am so excited for all my couples who have already chosen to add these to their custom stationery. There is no mess or fuss (I do all of the assembly for you) and you get the keep the wax seal stamp as a keepsake to use and treasure! Who could ask for more!? So question, bride or not, if you could have a custom seal made, what would you want it to be?
We are wrapping up regular order around here as we prepare for a much needed Christmas break - finishing up some special projects and preparing for the new year. What a wonderful year it has been! So many lovely invitations and couples, with many more to come. It sounds cliché but it really is rather true. I sure do love my job.

Don’t have all the fancy nibs and oblique pens you see calligraphers using? Don’t worry about it! You can use a simple cheap pen to create a similar effect. Just thicken the down strokes to create that ‘faux-ligraphy look.
Working on some custom calligraphy vows for a past bride, knocking out emails and slowly but surely crossing things off the list so I can be fully present during the holidays with my family! One of my favorite things about the holidays are the traditions that come with them. What special holiday traditions do you and your loved ones do every year?!? Tell me below - I would love to hear some ideas!! 🎄// photo: @annawayphoto ring: @susiesaltzman workshop: @cassievalentephoto film lab: @richardphotolab
I had a blast at my onsite calligraphy event at Neiman Marcus Last Call! I got to meet so many lovely people and helped personalized so many gifts. 😊 Also, a special THANK YOU to @versachalk for providing me this chalk board and chalk pens so I can make this sign for the event. Seriously the juiciest pens I've ever written with 🍋
My favorite part of simple, yet organic line work, is capturing the imperfections. I always start with the basic shape, but then I love to go in and add the little areas that are bent, blemished , and real.
December means handwritten cards and letters. Both of which i have yet to start on. Where does time go? //Cries// where do you all get your cards from? I think i might design my own and print them but again...timeeeee looool Photography: @mksadler@mksadlerwed Styling and florals: @mossfloral
