Lately, I have really been wanting to work on a side project that had meaning and something I could work on for a few minutes every morning. I really hadn't found any inspiration for a personal project until a few days ago.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with the girls of Loveleigh Invitations, Danielle and Cheyenne, on these totally luxurious letterpress invitations. It's not a normal occasion that I actually get to see the finished project so I was super excited when these came in the mail!

How to: Preparing your guest list for your Calligrapher

Posted on February 19, 2014 at 4:00 PM Comments comments (1)
