Last week I had the unique opportunity to host a calligraphy workshop at my studio office, and it was SO much fun! The incredibly talented designer and calligrapher, Katie Hoffman came to share some beginner’s tips and skills. Not only did I get to host, but I was able to participate in the workshop and couldn’t believe how much I learned in just 2 hours.

I feel beyond blessed that I have such a beautiful studio space that I was able to open up to others for the evening. I hope to host another one sometime in the future! By the way, if you need ANY sort of calligraphy done – I would highly recommend you contact Katie Hoffman Ink. She is the sweetest, most accommodating, and unbelievably talented person.

Also, a big thank you to Myriad Cake Design for the amazing cake truffles she provided to the evenings treats, and to Distinctive Designs by Denice for the gorgeous floral arrangements! You made the night even more fun and special =)

Recently I worked with Tara Francis Photography on a romantic + whimsical inspiration shoot. It was a fun opportunity to create an elegant invitation suite with soft watercolors, vintage stamps and calligraphy font treatments.

We are so excited to have this shoot featured on Style Me Pretty! You can see more of the images on their blog here.
