I've been shamelessly plugging the Lady Luminous font in wherever I can. Website headers - why not?
Today is the last day to participate in my survey/giveaway! The information provided by you guys so far has been so so helpful! A huge THANK YOU to all that have participated so far. And since I would love to gather as much info as possible - I'm going to sweeten the deal by sending a copy of my font to anyone who tags a friend in the health, fitness or beauty industry! (They must be a legit friend in one of those industries though people, no big companies or celebs please and thank you!). If you don't know what I am referring to, I've copied the original info below. ps - those who qualify and have already participated will receive a digital file of the font after the giveaway has ended. Thanks again!!! ------ Original post: Calling all my Makeup artists, hair stylists, nutritionists, fitness industry professionals alike! I have posted a link in my profile to a short survey and I would love it so much if you could help me out by taking 10 minutes to fill it out! The first 15 participants to submit a completed survey will receive a copy of Lady Luminous (my handwritten font) to use as you would like, and entered into a raffle to receive a three month subscription to Birchbox! If you don't fall into the category (listed above), please tag a friend who is! Thanks - you guys rock!
Obsessed with the way this @oatmeallace apron turned out for @stephwildehair. I’m forever a fan of McKay and her beautiful creations. The embroidered logo designed last year turned out 🙌🏼. Also, I learned a big lesson this year - not everything needs to be dyi'd! I tried to edge paint these business cards myself which was an epic disaster, so my friend Britt of @swellpress graciously saved my booty and helped this girl out by handling it. Lesson learned - some things should be left to the pros! Thanks Britt!! 😘
I still obsess over the magic that is letterpress. I can't wait to visit @swellpress to print another batch when these bad boys run out. My favorite thing is that these can double as so much more than just business cards, I always like to hole punch them and attach them to client gifts or packages (with the logo mark showing) with black bakers twine. It's a small detail that goes a long ways. --- ps - thank you so much to those of you have participated in the survey so far! It's been such a great way to connect and learn some very valuable and helpful information! And if you still are interested in filling it out to be entered into the giveaway - just follow the link in my profile!

I know you have already seen variations of this mood board several times, but as it evolves, I will probably keep sharing. Since I've recently narrowed my niche to health and beauty and am in the process of refining my services, it only makes sense to rework my ...wait for it......website. This will be a slow and steady process since I will be working on this project during off hours, but naturally I'm looking forward to continue to share the bts! --- Also, don't you mind that I will be sneaking in reminders for the survey throughout this week and next. Surveys are a great way to grasp a better idea of what type of mind track your audience (or ideal audience) is on - so! Please help a girl out and either a)tag a friend in the health, beauty or fitness industries or b) if you are in one of these industries PLEASE, take a few moments to fill it out. The first 15 people to fill it out will get gifted a freebie, and entered in to a chance to win a three month subscription to Birchbox!

Woah, hey there! One of my favorite things to do is drop off the face of this instagram planet so I can come back and make a grand entrance - did it work? Just kidding, I have been a little MIA, only because things have been crazy busy over here working on personal and client projects that I am looking forward to sharing. Here's a sneak peak and #BTS of one of two fonts I am trying to finish up and add to the shop soon. Also - if you love these types of videos and want to dive in deeper to learn a bit of the calligraphy life on your own, you should definitely come and join us for our next workshop at @m.lovewell on March 18th! I'm still pretty obsessed with their new storefront, it's gorgeous. Follow the link in my profile to sign up!
A few more spots opened up for Friday's workshop at @m.lovewell ! I don't know what it is about our Friday groups, but it's always a good time when we have a Friday evening workshop! Come see for yourself ;)
Even though he doesn't have instagram, I dedicate this day to my forever valentine. And whether you have a valentine or not, may you all feel loved today and everyday ❤️💕
First workshop of the year yesterday! Not only that, it's the first official re-opening of @m.lovewell in their new space!! It’s beautiful and I'm honored to be one of the first events in the new shop and look forward to all our upcoming workshops in this awesome space! Speaking of - our next Intro to Modern Calligraphy is February 16th. Come check out the new shop and join in on all the fun! Sign up via the link in our profile.
Happy Friday! It's the end of the week - I have been working on wrapping up a few projects and preparing for work scheduled for the month ahead. Also, here's a little #flashbackfriday to the ongoing real life inspiration board I have in my office. I'm working on getting ready to pull most of it down, and start with a freshie for the year. True story, I actually have been creating these since high school. In college, I would create one for each aspect of my life and called them vision boards. While this might sound silly, I actually think it helped attract the things I really wanted, that or looking at it every day helped keep my goals at the forefront of my mind, so I was subconsciously working toward them at all times.
Tax time for the win!! Not my favorite, but these bright blooms seem to make it a little more tolerable.
Guess whatttt!!!! My friend Danni of @ohhellofriend is opening up a new studio where she will be hosting her awesome creative workshops again! In case you didn't already know, I actually got my start over three years ago at her awesome shop @ohfshop in Fullerton! I'm so excited to be teaching brush lettering next month on the 23rd! Tickets for this workshop are $85 and include all your supplies! Follow the link listed in my profile to sign up. Be there or be square!
Thanks to everyone's supportive and positive comments on yesterday's post! I'm really excited for the new direction and look forward to sharing more about why I decided to take the leap. ---- In case you were wondering - workshops aren't going anywhere. It's always been tough marrying the two sides of my business together, but I have equal amounts of passion invested in both! (anyone else share this unique struggle?) And speaking of workshops - I will be announcing a few new workshops, dates and venues in the next couple of days! (ps. some are already listed in my profile!) --- Now to this guy - I recently pitched this mood board to one of my brand design clients who is rebranding their shop which has been around for over 25 years. Our goal is to create a brand that is classic, versatile and can grow with their business. We are actually already about to wrap up the design phase and I'm looking forward to sharing!
