On top of all of the usual envelopes and placecards, there have been a number of different projects to keep me on my toes. The first photo is a poem a friend wanted to frame for her living room. The second was a custom lettering style for Celiday, who wanted things large and loopy and on the diagonal. The third was a poem given as a gift, and the last photo shows a seating chart that would have been right at home at my own wedding had I been doing this 13 years ago!
Mash up seems to be the lettering style of the season - in many colors and different incarnations. We see it here in pink on black envelopes with a unique (and lovely!) return address choice. The second photo is white ink with an offset name on black paper. The third shows the mashup in gold ink written inside a preprinted border, and the fourth shows it in a deep purple with a flourish below.
I've been so busy writing I haven't had time to update! Here are some examples of what I've been working on lately. The first photo shows heather lettering in a shimmery blue ink. The second is wispy lettering in gold (and to some fun addresses!). The third photo is chancery lettering in navy ink, and the fourth is block lettering in magenta.

The white card with the red lettering is actually one of my own Christmas cards! The two on the purple cards are samples for a prospective client. The trend lately seems to be that people want to fill the envelope with fun loops and swirls. I love it. What do you think?

And what better way to celebrate than to be accepted into Hogwarts! I updated some of the details to be accurate with the end of the last book and this was literally the most fun project I have ever worked on. I kept waking my husband up to show him each piece as it was finished (I don't know if he was as excited about it as I was, lol...) I downloaded an envelope template and made my own so the paper would match, and even had green sealing wax to match the green ink. So much fun!!!

Hello to anyone who has found their way to his blog! Be sure to take a look at the following 6 posts - there are lots of new pictures of just some of the things I have been working on over the past year. During the busy season I don't always have time to update so often, but between now and the end of the year my schedule typically lightens up quite a bit. If you are looking to have holiday cards addressed, or if you are having an early spring wedding, now is the best time to have them done! Feel free to contact me with any questions at all or to let me know if there is anything else you would like to see.
Some new things that I ended up liking! The first is Heather again, which I mentioned in the previous post. If I get around to making up the new samples sometime soon I think I am going to include this one. The second is basically just the mash up, but it was so fun to have the names on the diagonal! And in the bottom photo we just added a swirl below the regular mash up.
