I've got a question for YOU! But first: This little pretty made it to its foreverhome today, + this future momma to be who received it was thrilled! They picked the name because it's her mother's maiden name, + her father-in-laws first name. I about teared up when I heard that. Josh + I are REALLY sentimental. We appreciate passing things down from generation to generation, creating tradition, + carrying on memories that tell a story. We have in our home my grandpas foot locker that he traveled with in the Vietnam War that we now store blankets in for our guest room, his grandmas old hospital chart holder (it's really the coolest thing!) that holds our wedding guest book polaroids, the kitchen farmtable my dad handmade us from 1800's wood from Boston, MA (my home! πŸ™), an old wooden trunk my dad + I found on the side of the road that we refurbished on a daddy-daughter date when I was a little dreaming girl, + many more pieces! I believe that NO matter what your story is, what life you have been handed, what hardships + joys your family has faced, what brokenness you have experienced, or what adventure your family has gone on, you should be PROUD of your heritage because it is a deep rooted part of YOUR story. We have broken pieces of our imperfect family woven into our home, + it makes us proud to share the gift of where we came from with those who enter our home. .

πŸ‘‰πŸΌQUESTION: What heritage do YOU have woven into YOUR home or YOUR decor or YOUR children's names that you are proud of? Would you share that with me? I would LOVE to hear about the heritage you keep as a story to tell! Kaitlyn, I love that you wove your family's heritage into this little girls name, + I pray she grows into a strong, beautiful woman! Thankyou for the honor to be a part of her story! .

...cuz I have a friend that thinks I can do anything you can consider "crafty"...πŸ™ˆπŸ˜œπŸ˜

5:30 a.m. work session has got me needing all the coffee β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈβ˜•οΈ #girlboss
But how cute are these custom signs for one of our brides?! 😍

Front door signs make great wedding gifts! #weddinggifts #woodweddingsigns #stumpedwoodart

Wedding signage from a wedding a few months back! Painting on wood is just another one of my favorite things 😍 #InkandOakDesignCo #handdrawntype #calligraphy #weddingsignage #woodweddingsigns

#fbf to this wood sign for a beautiful Yosemite wedding! The bride and groom wanted something very simple, because @maeflowerssonoma was going to work her magic with floral! Don't let this sign fool you, it was 2x3'! The other side had song lyrics from the brides moms wedding song! ❀️ Event Design + Planning: @roqueevents
Floral: @maeflowerssonoma
Venue: @themajesticyosemitehotel

SATURDAY! We live for our Saturday's! Since it's 10,000 degrees today with humidity of 300% (yes, I am making that a real thing!πŸ’¦πŸ”₯β˜€οΈ) we are staying inside today to PAINT! The first floor of our home is pretty put together + 'done' for now, but head upstairs, + yikes, there is a lot of work to be done! This hallway looks so nice, but go to the rooms off of it, + wow! We are hosting some friends on the 27th, + will be painting our guest room today (Dave Ramsey style!) to welcome them in + make it a 'home' kind of space. So, Josh will be taking care of painting the room, while I paint a dresser to make it more functional. It won't be EXACTLY how I would like it styled (I could get a rug, a new lamp, a new mirror, TONS of throw pillows, + MORE!) but, hello, Dave Ramsey + we have BIGGER goals right now than a perfect guest room, but we also believe in hosting, + hosting well! So here's to painting + Netflix, hosting friends, finishing details on my website, working on some @made.weddings pretties, staying COOL, + spending the day at home in pj's with my best friend! πŸ™‹πŸ½

Mailed out two little pretties today, + I cannot wait for them to sit in their new homes. I love processes. From wood on a shelf at Lowe's, to cutting, to staining, to hand lettering, to staging, to wrapping + presentation, to mailing, to then, the very best part, sitting in its new + permanent home! It brings me great joy to be a part of your wedding day, home decor, baby name reveal, new nursery, gift giving, + all the in between! .

Friends. It's OK to look down at what your hands have created + be PROUD. To give your best self + your best work for the sake of the joy of someone else owning what you create?! That's a beautiful thing! I know I have so far to grow + so much to learn, but in this place, I will be proud of what I create right NOW in this moment, because I know I gave the best I have TODAY. I will always strive for better, to learn, + to grow, but if we never appreciate + celebrate where we are today, we will never love what we do! So, today, I am giving my best self in the form of calligraphy to my bride Anica! I cannot wait for her to see her autumn 40-sign wedding suite (whew, here we go!), but for now, I enjoy the product my hands have made! Double tap if you needed this reminder to stop, to look at your work (whether you are a creative, business person, mom, entrepreneur, etc.), to look at what you have done, + be proud because it is the very best you can give! Here's to you! Here's to us striving for excellence, but living in today!

BEHIND THE SCENES STYLING! My most favorite pieces to use for styling my handmade #letterandknotco pieces is pure simple eucalyptus, raw pieces of wood, + the unadulterated beautiful natural light. (I love to throw in my nibs + gauche + pallets too when done on paper!) I strive for simple, warm, organic, clean, + elegance, with a WHOLE lotta joy! When you see pictures on here, this is 99% of the time how they were achieved: front door WIDE open in our living room (letting my neighbors wonder what the heck I am doing, + letting in ALL the flies + bees for Josh to kill! 😭🐝) , natural light flooding in, sweeping up all the dirt on the floor, + placing the eucalyptus perfectly to compliment the wood signs I so carefully hand-lettered! .

COMMENT πŸ‘‡πŸΌ BELOW WITH: How do YOU style the beautiful pieces you create for your clients? What are your go-to pieces that fit YOUR brand? Our clients should get the best picture of their finished work as a creative + vendor, + I just love this part of the process to capture what we dreamed up + made a reality! .

If you didn't know, Letter + Knot Co couldn't exist without this handsome guy. He is the brawn + tool master behind what this girl does, + this is a sneak peak into his (very clean + photo shoot styled!) workshop where all the magic happens! (Don't worry, it doesn't usually look this clean! 😭) Anyone else have a man that helps make their vision dreams come true? I hear ya! He is mine! πŸ‘¨πŸ»βš™οΈπŸ”¨πŸŒ²πŸ’πŸ½

Today, I woke up not feeling so great. And it's BEAUTIFUL out! (Don't you hate that?πŸ˜žπŸ˜‰) I rested this morning, + now, we are tackling some errands. On the list today is grocery shopping, picking up multiple pieces of wood for a sweet bride @sgmilner + her wedding suite, finishing a few signs for another sweet brides wedding suite, + putting some finishing touches on the website. We may even squeeze in a walk at our favorite place, Cherokee Park, if I'm feeling up to it! .

What are your plans for this gorgeous Sunday? Get out there + do something you're afraid to do today! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ .

There is something about crisp white ink on wood that makes my heart so happy! So grateful to have made a few signs for my sisters wedding!

As most of you know, m husband + I (Josh), are working Dave Ramsey hard to pay off debt + be debt free by 30! This weekend, he sacrificed for our family, + on top of his 45 hour/week job, he worked an extra 35 hours all week, all Friday night, + all day Saturday + Sunday to bring in extra income to add to our debt snowball. His sacrifice in this season has been so great, + it has shown me how much he loves me + this family we are building together. We love because our Jesus first loved us, + Josh is truly exemplifying Christ in his service, his kindness, his sacrifice, + his provision. This sign will be headed out to a wedding in Boston, MA, + this verse has meant more to me watching Josh love me now that we are married than it ever has before. Happy Monday friends; let's be known for our love today! .

P.s. Don't let this little square fool you! This little pretty isn't so little! It's 2 feet wide by 3 feet tall! πŸ˜πŸ–‹πŸŒΏπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

HARD TRUTH ALERT|| Happy Sunday creatives + friends! My little squares will soon be filled with some more pretties from this Boston, MA bride wedding suite, + I cannot wait to share more! || Can I interrupt you all for a minute though? For all of you out there trying to make it, + build something from the ground up that uses all of your passions + gifts, hear me: it's ok to grow slow! Nothing worth fighting for happens overnight, + a seed doesn't turn into a flower just because it is planted. It has to overcome gravity, push up through the dirt + soil, break through its shell, + then absorb all the light + water around it that it can. It is battled against weather, bugs, animals, being trampled, + all the other trials in between. But, isn't it all worth the end result? 🌷So friends, take a breath, slow down, fight the good fight, take the time to do what you do WELL, surround your self with people who push you higher + give you water + life, + remember that it is better to grow slow. I'm right there with you pushing through soil! .

NEWS ALERT! Today, @southernweddings shared an inspiring post about marriage + money! Did you know the number reason husbands + wives divorce is money fights?! Josh + I are on a journey to be debt free, + Southern Weddings shared our story! Can you believe that?! Me neither! Starting Letter and Knot Co, + our Dave Ramsey journey has been two of the best adventures in our marriage, + I encourage you to go to the link in my profile, + read not only our story, but a few others of couples adventuring this debt free journey with us! We would NEVER look back on how far we have come, + I truly believe the BEST is yet to be! 'We are living like no one else, so that later, we can live + give like no one else!' P.s. This is one of the sweetest love stories I've hand lettered to date, + there are many more to come. Life should be full of really, really great stories!

I promised a BIG unexpected announcement tonight, + I am honored to share! I was officially invited to be a wedding vendor @made.weddings : Louisville's FIRST + ONLY curated interactive wedding show! This will be a LIVE fake wedding where brides-to-be + vendors collide + interact in a LIVE setting where product will be set out as if in a real wedding day event! I was humbled + honored when @jordanmariekavuma invited me to be a vendor, + this is honestly a HUGE + unexpected step in little #letterandknotco as I seek to tell a GREAT story of a Bride + Groom's great love through handlettering + calligraphy! I wouldn't have EVER stepped out of my comfort zone if it weren't for my sweet husband pushing me to just begin, to be faithful with the SMALL things + the SMALL steps, + to put myself out there while trusting my talents + abilities! Now look at the doors the Lord has opened!Why is that so hard for us ladies?! We doubt ourselves SO often, but we need more people in our lives to encourage us to GO for it! I wouldn't be the woman I am today without you, @joshuacraft1 , so THANKYOU!

Brides-to-be 2017, 2018, + even 2019...you WON'T want to miss this one day event to connect with + find your perfect vendors to help tell YOUR love story on your very BEST day! I cannot wait to see you + serve you there at Made Weddings! P.s....swipe all the way left for some 'Us he Duo' song magic + my process of creating the pretty in this little square! πŸ˜˜πŸ–‹πŸŒΏ

This little one is going to have the best parents! See that little heart there, well that's where 'James Warren's' parents met in Warren County, Kentucky, + I just love the meaning + thoughtfulness put into his name! Names are so powerful, + they are worth putting extra thought into, as they carry with us our whole lives! My dad wanted to name me Asia, + my mom wanted to name me Jenna, but as soon as they saw me, I guess Ashley just fit + they spontaneously named me! My middle name though was always going to be Margaret. She was my maternal grandmother who I never got to meet, but I am everything like! I am always told that I get 60% of my creativity from her, + then ALL the rest from my sweet dad (have you SEEN the kitchen table he made Josh + I, + his carpentry skills?!?). My poor mom gave me NOTHING but stick figures for creativity! πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚ #letterandknotco

Or should it say 'Mom-osa's'?! 😍πŸ₯‚πŸΎCelebrated a pretty momma-to-be today & it screamed boho woodland animals, & all things gold & white, & it was stunning! We can't wait to meet little James Warren!

An adoption. A name. A place. A very best day. A celebration. We each have a story to tell, no matter what season of life we are in, or who we have in our lives. Our unique story is important, even when you scroll through this creative space called Instagram, & feel unimportant or 'not-enough', you are, & your story is worth being told! Let's raise each other up, not tear each other down, & celebrate what is happening in each of our lives! What story do you need to tell today? #ashleymargaretcraft #handlettered #woodsigns #woodensigns #woodweddingsigns #woodenweddingsigns #farmtablecalligraphy #moderncalligraphy #louisvilleweddingcalligraphy #louisvillecalligraphy #louisvilleweddings #louisvillebride #mademarket #madeweddings #mademarketlou #weddingsparrow #communityovercompetition #weddingcalligraphy #bridetobe2018 #bridetobe2017 #engaged2017 #engaged #christianwomeninbusiness #southernwedding #southernweddings #tellagreatstory

Behind the scenes of Letter & Knot Co., what you DON'T see right now are many, many wedding signs being completed. I can't share those yet, as to keep the anticipation building for my brides, BUT that doesn't mean little pretties aren't being handmade! These arrived at their home TODAY for one of my best friends who just happens to live TOO far. Sweet @hannahraebishop , I love little Amelia Jean, & I cannot wait to meet Avery Joy! Baby names & the naming process is so special, & I want to know YOUR favorite boy & girl baby names! (Middle names too, as they are the best part! 😊) #ashleymargaretcraft #handlettered #woodsigns #woodensigns #woodweddingsigns #woodenweddingsigns #farmtablecalligraphy #moderncalligraphy #louisvilleweddingcalligraphy #louisvillecalligraphy #louisvilleweddings #louisvillebride #mademarket #madeweddings #mademarketlou #weddingsparrow #communityovercompetition #weddingcalligraphy #bridetobe2018 #bridetobe2017 #engaged2017 #engaged #christianwomeninbusiness #southernwedding #southernweddings #entreprenuers #ifgathering #babynames #theknotbride #letterandknotco
