Revisiting 2016.....

Wow! 2016 just flew by!!! 

I have to confess, I don't remember much of the year only because there was so much beautiful activity twirling around!

Here is an example of such beauty:

The beauty of calligraphy is you can add a signature touch or what designers in the industry like to call "branding" to your special day. These personalized cups, napkins and matches match the Save-the-Date invite sent out a few months ago and will also match the upcoming wedding invitation going out soon. Stay tuned for the wedding upcoming wedding invitation!!!

A super fabulous designer friend of mine, Rachel Singleton, referred me to Whitney English to help out with a dinner for Alt Summit this week.

I was beyond thrilled as I admire both of them so much! The kindness and warmest responses ensued from this fun venture. Simply, I don't think I've ever been thanked as much for anything I've produced as I have for this dinner party.

Rarely does one get to see the finished product unless it is for print. Half the time I stumble upon something I've done by total accident. I find the calligrapher is the last to be thanked or acknowledged when everything is said and done.

To me, when I create anything/something, it is simply unfinished as I am not quite sure how or where it went for it's final resting place. 

Today, I was happy to find my little "works of art" found a happy place.

I showed a sample of these place cards I was working on for this wedding earlier this year but was SO EXCITED!!! to see an actual professional photograph of my work on a blog! Rarely do I get to see the finished product and how it incorporated into a bride's wedding.

I love the simplicity of the Escort Card Holder. Simple yet very elegant.
