Do you have a friend that is a calligrapher and/or stationer and is just breaking into the field? Maybe they’ve been pursuing their hobby & passion for a while, and maybe they’ve even made a career out of it! I’ve compiled a gift guide for calligraphers and stationers so that you don’t need to look anywhere else. In this gift guide I share my top gifts for calligraphers & stationers, and all of these are easy to order online (because we all love taking the hassle out of holiday shopping, am I right?).Read More
Hello friends! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post, mainly because I’ve been swept up in travel, invitation work for weddings, and Biz Birthday Bash in the past few months. I haven’t even had time to send out my monthly newsletter, and I’m starting to think it maybe needs to be a quarterly thing… anyway, I wanted to go ahead and introduce all of you to an amazing quiz software I’ve had the privilege of trying out and utilizing on my website. This software is called Interact, and it’s an online quiz-builder that can help you generate leads for your business! After trying it out, I’m excited to say I have it fully integrated with my website and I can’t wait to see what kind of leads I collect.Read More
This is a topic that I’m super excited to be blogging about. After all, I can’t tell you how many people have emailed me asking how I got involved in my current mastermind group. So, simply stated, this blog post is dedicated to answering some questions about mastermind groups, as well as sharing a few ways you can find one of your own!
I was first contacted by a friend in the stationery business who asked me if I wanted to be part of one. Her (and two other creatives) had already decided to be committed to a mastermind and wanted to get one more person involved…Read More
Joel & Anna's May 12th wedding in Marysville, OH was one for the books, especially since Joel is my cousin and one of my best friends! I'm so excited to welcome Anna into the family and I'm thrilled to call her my cousin-in-law (is that even a thing haha)?! Regardless, the day was absolutely beautiful and the weather couldn't have been better for photos because there was impeccable lighting all day! All photos in this post are courtesy of Rachael Leigh Photography- make sure to check her out, she is amazing and she delivered the gallery to my cousin and family within 2 weeks of the wedding (HECK YES)!Read More
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!Read More
This blog post is meant to serve as a quick guide for USPS related policies surrounding wedding invitations and save the dates, or really any piece of mail for that matter. However, I am not an employee of USPS, so for all your official questions please refer to USPS.com or visit your local USPS location.
The US Postal Service has a mind of its own. Actually, it has several minds of its own because every branch and physical location of the USPS just so happens to operate a little differently. Really convenient, right? This means that what one USPS location might tell you, might differ at the location that’s just 2 miles down the street. This makes mailing your wedding invitations (and having ALL of them show up with no problems) feel like winning the lottery.Read More
Brides! I know, I know. Weddings are already so expensive, but out of all the items that you’ve received quotes for and planned for, have you taken the time to think about the budget for your wedding invitations? Wedding invitations are much more complicated than most brides think they will be, which is why it’s so important to plan in advance. You might be able to find a gorgeous wedding invitation on Etsy, Minted, PaperSource, etc., but have you taken the time to think about how much custom artwork could help boost your wedding invitation experience?
Wedding invitations are just as important as the rest of your wedding day, especially because they are helping to set the scene and mood for your guests…Read More
