I'm going to be a grandmother!

Things are pretty busy around here as I get ready for my newest role... That of grandmother to my daughter's baby boy who we'll welcome to the world in early March! I'm thrilled, and have been sewing and shopping for the little one since we learned about him back during the summer. I was asked to do the Shower invitation by Elizabeth's friends, and after they sent me some ideas from the web, this is what I drew up. 
Obviously with a baby on the way in our family things will be super busy for me, but if you'd like me to do something similar for you, let me know!

Of course I love to create things for people on their wedding day or for their special event, but it's pretty fun for me to get to make things for my family, sometimes, too. Here's a little peek at our Thanskgiving table last week.

getting the details just right.

 Until a few years ago I was primarily a portrait painter and graphic designer, but in college I took up calligraphy as a hobby. It fell by the wayside until my daughter got married and now I have the most fun mixing ink colors and getting details just right on envelopes instead of canvases. Here are a few of my current projects where I've been able to match the ink used by the printer or match the stationer's font.

If you'd like a custom-matched color ink or font, reach out! I'd love to help make your invitations perfect.
