Kyle and Shelby were a great couple to work with for their wedding invitations. Shelby wrote me a lovely email describing her vision for the day. She shared that they would be working with blues and have delft china decorating the venue. As soon as she said that, I was off and running. The first thing

Every once and awhile I get a request to do one of these. I thought it would be easier if I just added a few to my Etsy store for easy ordering. These are not hard to make at all and add a nice personal touch to dress photos. I also have a ton of

In January, I took a frame weaving class and I am kinda obsessed. The process of weaving is so theraputic. I am giving the last one I made away to my little brother and his girlfriend, so to replace it I created this one. I am still getting used to making them and started this

When the photographer Rachael reached out to me, I was worried I wouldn’t have enough time to help her out for this photo shoot. Luckily, I had a lazy Saturday to fill and knocked out ome invitations, place cards and cocktails recipes just in time. I love when people reach out to work on things

Over the past four weeks, I took a frame weaving class at the Visual Art Center. I wanted to take this for so long but haven’t been able to find a suitable time, but this winter, I made it work. I planned four weekends in a row in Richmond, something I never do, just to

Every year I make a new set of Valentine’s day cards. I tend to lead a First Friday workshop at the art center where I teach and it’s always a perfect project to do with a new group of students. This year, I tried a few different things before settling on this lock up. It

I think the hardest part about running a business is staying on top of making listings & samples for the website. I get wrapped up in all the MAKING part that I don’t have time to photograph everything. I knew I needed to settle down and add some to the Etsy shop and this website

For Christmas last year, I made a few of these notecards for my friends. They would look great with grey or white envelopes or maybe some sunny yellow ones. I letterpressed the top of the cards with grey ink and still have that piece locked up for future use. When I finished, I lettered the
