brides & babies

Well look at me. Getting all fancy with my matching coffee, twine, & binder; and my table, specifically cleaned off for my first bridal consultation of the year! wooo weee!  I’m excited because my calendar for January and February is quickly filling up with new weddings, and it’s a nice mix of different colors, themes, and responsibilities.  I like to alternate between envelope calligraphy jobs and custom invitations to give my hand a break or test out some new design ideas.


This calligraphy piece is heading to the nursery of a cute little girl, of this super awesome bride, and is meant to coordinate with a most beautiful rug from Anthropologie. It’s one of my more colorful pieces to date, and I’m thinking it will look pretty darn magnificent to a child’s eyes!



And finally, the thank you notes that we sent out for Liam’s 1st birthday. That boy makes me melt!

I just love the grand spectacle that is Coldplay. This video has so much whimsy- it sort of feels like a children’s pageant, doesn’t it?  When the camera pans out, the stage looks so miniature and magical. Holiday music is so nice.

those Christmas lights light up the street
down where the sea and city meet
may all your troubles soon be gone
oh, Christmas lights, keep shinin’ on
