New website and other calligraphy and non-calligraphy announcements!

Hi folks!
So sorry for being silent over here for the last month... things have been busy with a few projects:

  1. A new website for Joie de Vivre Calligraphy! Check it out here. I hope you love it! I am super-proud of how it turned out, and I only needed minimal help from outside sources to get it into the shape I wanted!
  2. I took a few weeks off work during June/July due to some pretty severe nausea, vomiting, and exhaustion... because I'm growing another human inside of me! It's true, I'm pregnant, due in February 2016. It was wonderful to take a short breather from my work to allow my body to get through the first trimester, and I am not safely in trimester two, and my energy (and appetite) are now back with a vengeance! (Check out the announcement I made on social media about my pregnancy.)
Thanks for your patience during a brief period of silence here at Joie de Vivre!

Glam New Year's Eve wedding

New Year's Eve weddings are so chic and glamorous, in my opinion. I was part of creating the calligraphy wedding materials and paper goods for one last year at Castle Hill Cider and it was In. Cred. Ible.

Styling by the incomparable Mallory Joyce, photos by Lucy O Photography. This wedding was also featured on Borrowed & Blue -- see that link here for all the prettiness!

Style Me Pretty feature!

I'm so thrilled to have had my work featured recently on Style Me Pretty. This beautiful organic river shoot was styled by the lovely Meredith Coe (of Meredith Coe Photography) and photographed by Emily Sacco. Love love love everything about this shoot -- the watercolors, the washes of color and organic feel, the setting, the people involved. A dream come true, right here!

Check it out here!

Website underway...

Hi, all! Sorry for the radio silence here the last few weeks. I've got a few things cookin', including a new website that I'll be launching around the first of August! Can't wait to share it.

Until then... a little snapshot from a recent styled shoot with 3 Cats Photography.
