I’ve recently been working on a series of custom items about 5×7 for a very old friend of mine with different quotes.  These are sweet gifts she is giving out to people she loves. I particularly love this quote she requested in gold ink. I love this picture because even though the lighting is weird you can see that the ink is raised… one of my favorite features of using paint!

At the same time the quote is certainly a good thought to keep in your head while you branch out on a new course!  Who couldn’t use that reminder?

The Beginning

Just one year ago I got married in Washington, DC. During the 9 months that let up to that I was busy planning the details to the wedding. When it came to stationary I was so conflicted… Paper/Stationary has always been something I loved… so how could I decide what I wanted from all the amazing options out there!

At the end of the day I decided to add my own personal touch to the occasion by making them myself. I picked up a calligraphy pen and started to practice…before I knew it I was spending all my free time testing new nibs, mixing custom ink colors, and coming up with different font styles. I was hooked. Since then I have had the chance to dedicate myself to this full time and I am loving every minute of it. These photos are courtesy of the lovely Laura Gordon who captured them during our engagement session!  I owe Laura a huge ‘Thank You’ for always being so encouraging and supportive!  If you need a photographer for any reason I strongly suggest you reach out!  Professional, delightful and her eye for photography is AMAZING!
