How to Brew Kombucha at Home: Get Started for $50!

How to Brew Kombucha at Home: Get Started for $50!

So... I took a poll on my Instagram story and asked my followers if they would be interested in learning about brewing kombucha and insisted that they be honest, since obviously brewing kombucha isn’t related to calligraphy or wedding invitations. However, it is GREAT for someone who may be on an artist’s budget… aka me ;) The response was a 70% and 30% split, with the 70% in favor of learning about brewing kombucha. So yay! This is why this has officially turned into a blog post on a calligrapher’s blog haha.

Brewing kombucha is a fun and healthy hobby to have and I really struggled with finding a new hobby once my hobby (calligraphy & design) became my full time job. This has been perfect!

Wedding Calligrapher & Invitation Designer: Home Studio Tour

Wedding Calligrapher & Invitation Designer: Home Studio Tour

Some of you probably already know most of my story, so I'll keep this intro relatively short! In September 2015 my husband and I moved to Marietta, Georgia so that he could attend a local grad school. We have a two bedroom apartment, which is such a blessing to have in the first few  years of marriage, especially when one of you (a.k.a. ME) has a business. From the beginning we knew that the second bedroom would turn into an office space first, and a guest room second (when we feel like getting out the air mattress). 

From the time we moved in I've spent more hours collecting different pieces of furniture, moving things around, changing the setup, and working in this space than I can count…

2017 Christmas Card Collection: How to Order Your Cards!

2017 Christmas Card Collection: How to Order Your Cards!

It's already the most wonderful time of the year! Can you believe it? I know, I know, announcing Christmas Cards in October definitely seems a little early but time goes fast & it's always better to start sooner than later when it comes to things like this! And by things like this, I mean things that could take a couple of hours but usually span over multiple weeks due to interruptions and other things that come up (especially if you have kids).

Ordering your semi-custom Christmas Cards (or holiday cards) this year is now easier than ever and definitely more personal than ordering them from a huge company.

A Little Bit About Our Life: Master Bedroom Tour

A Little Bit About Our Life: Master Bedroom Tour

Will and I moved across the country in September 2015; he is originally from Washington and I’m from Colorado. We met in Washington when attending university, got married in Colorado after we graduated, and then packed everything we owned into his tiny Subaru Legacy (by everything I'm talking some clothes, shoes, my art supplies, and his TV & xbox). He had already driven the 22-something hours from Seattle to Denver, and then we did an additional 20 hours from Denver to Marietta, GA after the wedding and honeymoon - I will have to talk about that later because that was an intense couple of weeks to say the least. We moved to Marietta so that Will could attend graduate school, and we've loved it so much we will most likely stay long term!
