Happy Tuesday, friends!
 
On the first Tuesday of every month, join me in my new blog series, Tuesday Typography. Here, I’ll share with you my favorite typography finds & how to make them your own. Because a gorgeous font can brighten everyone’s day, am I right?
 
In my inaugural post, I’d like to introduce you to my first true {font} love. Meet Carolyna Pro Black….
 
 
Isn’t she gorgeous?! It’s one of many in the ever-popular Emily Lime font series, and is a great play on handwritten calligraphy. It’s also quite the popular script font for modern wedding invites, and pairs well with most san serif fonts. I can’t tell you how often my brides send inspirational photos that include this lovely font!
 
If you just HAVE to have it (like I did!), you can purchase & download it here —-> Carolyna Pro Black
 
Enjoy & happy typing! =)
 
Best,

With a baby around, there are “firsts” happening left and right. This morning, Brady woke up to his first Easter! After seeing the smiles on this kid’s face, I can say with confidence that the Easter Bunny did not disappoint…
 
   
 
Isn’t that little book set absolutely darling? I can’t wait to start reading him Peter Rabbit – it was one of my favorites as a kid! But for now, it’s naptime & then off to Grandma & Grandpa’s for family fellowship, Easter Lunch and our annual Easter Egg Hunt. =)
 
From our family to yours, we wish you a Happy Easter!
 
 
 
Best,

Who doesn’t love luscious florals, colorful linens & pretty paper? Add in a good cause & put it all together in a fabulous venue, and you have a perfect Sunday afternoon! Or, as we like to call it here in Indianapolis, Art of the Table.
 
Art of the Table is an annual event hosted by our local chapter of Association of Bridal Consultants, and took place this year in the lovely NCAA Hall of Champions.  Part of the proceeds go toward the American Cancer Society, in honor of a dear member to the local ABC family.
 
This year, I was invited by my über-talented sister, Lori from Boldly Chic Events, to contribute to her table entry. Her concept was “Fancy Elegance,” and was centered around a soft color palette & subtle, elegant accents. For my portion, I contributed printed pieces on fabric (dressed up with a little bling), along with gold laser-cut monograms & table number.
 
The gorgeous cascading florals were created by our gal pal, Stacy, from Design Group. This girl never ceases to amaze me with her creativity. It’s always such a pleasure working with her!
 
Many thanks to those who attended, as we were voted “People’s Choice” for the 2nd year in a row! We also earned the honor of “Best Wedding Table” from the ABC judging panel. I have to tell you though, there were SO many amazing table entries. The competition was fierce, to say the least!
 
Thanks also to Jessica Strickland for capturing these stunning photos of the Boldly Chic Events table entry…
 
 
 
 
If you’re in the Indy area, we hope to see you at next year’s event! Keep an eye on our Facebook page later this year for the 2014 event date & details…
I’m a country girl, small business owner, wife, mother of three, and a proud alumna of Purdue University (Boiler Up!).
 
Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
