This week has been a tough one. We mourned the losses caused from the bombing of the Boston Marathon. Then we mourned the losses and damage caused from the chemical explosion in the (beloved) town of West, Texas. This little phrase has played over in my mind through the week. To hope and have courage.
I also wanted to show my other lovely design for Bella Figura this year – Aquinnah.
This one is a combination of Mitty and capitals. The feeling is so different from the last with printing in navy and powder blue. It is perfect for a destination wedding – whether it is a fancy chateau outside of Paris or a simply lovely beach front wedding. It really is a universal design and has a feeling of being written by hand – like a love letter to your guests.
Did you know each Bella Figura design can be customized? You can change the fonts to include all mitty or more capitals. So many options!

Wedding season is in full swing! And I have 2 new invitation designs with the lovely & wonderful Bella Figura.
The first is…. awesome. I used the mitty font in classic black and jazzed it up by placing all the lettering on an angle and adding touches of copper (yes, real copper!) for an accent. Let me tell you – in person this suite (Gracieux) really shines.
Place your order now. And for those of you who say – how long does a calligraphy invitation take? My rule of thumb is: allow 3 weeks for designing with Bella Figura, 2 weeks for printing and 2 weeks for calligraphy addressing. It is better to be early because rush fees can add up!

Wow – I was so privileged to work with such a great group of creatives on this unique style shoot. Think: Metallic, sequins, desert, soft and dreamy. Plus, it was all captured on film by the oh so talented Taylor Lord. A couple photos below – but check out the whole feature on 100 Layer Cake here.
Many thanks to the fabulous Lindsey Zamora for including me and this fantastic group for putting together something special.

Wow – with the big day of love 1 week away I thought I would have a flash sale for an original print with some of my favorite song lyrics from The Postal Service.
Written on nice black paper with pink shimmer ink – this is modern and romantic… and a daily reminder to have a movie type ending to each day. Each piece measures 5×7 and is an original work of art.

I love being a Bella Figura calligrapher. They are wonderful to work with, their bamboo papers are heaven to write on and the designs have such a great range of aesthetics. Also, because of them – I get to work with the coolest clients.
This summer, I was asked to address these envelopes for an Austin, Texas bride and groom. The patterns and colors are wonderful and made me want to run away to the beach.
Matching ink color & Mitty lettering.
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with Ebony Peoples on a fun wedding favor. A personalized dinner charger. I think they turned out stunning and would be really wonderful personalized to the guest for a small dinner or holiday gathering where everyone is seated.
I loved working with a Munich company on this catalogue for spectacles. Each frame was named and had a different (but cohesive) lettering style. The cover is just stunning and every bit of the inside is beautiful. I have several picks for some new glasses now :-)
I am smitten with the new logo for Joyce. Joyce Kang is a talented photographer based out of Austin, Texas and needed a refreshed look to express her style of photography. We created a custom logo that I feel truly represents her photography – happy and full of life and movement. She does such a great job at capturing her subjects personality and I hope I did the same for her. You can see the new look on her website and with a few lovely stamps to be used in her packaging. The large one is so large for packages – I LOVE IT!
I love this recent photo – and the watermark :-)
