The Easiest Way to Collect Guest Addresses for a Wedding

The Easiest Way to Collect Guest Addresses for a Wedding

The majority of people I know have a Google account for one reason or another. If you don’t, it only takes a couple minutes to sign up for one. Google Forms is a lifesaver, and boy do I wish I had used it when I was gathering my guest addresses for my wedding! In fact, I just used it to gather addresses for Christmas Cards, and the amount of people that told me this is genius, I’m totally stealing this idea blew me away. They were right, it is SO easy and only takes a matter of second for each person to enter their own address (hello avoiding mistakes when you copy it or write it down yourself)!

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.

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.

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!
