Photo Caption from @katrinaalana: I just love packaging orders and sending them off to customers. If I have the time, I decorate the package and include a handmade thank you note. Just another way of saying thank you for choosing to work with us on your special day.
I was commissioned to work on an Apache Marriage Blessing poem by Germaine for her friends who were getting married. She originally wanted to do the piece in Italics but decided on my version of Modern Calligraphy instead. The text is written using Aurora Black ink and gold gouache on parchment paper.
The work took a few days to finish. I usually start the process with a pencil sketch for the outline and drawing of the feather. Once that was approved, I ink the final piece.
Note: I currently offer Copperplate and Modern Calligraphy services. Please contact me via the contact form for any enquiries.
I was interviewed by Lisabel Ting for her column, Get Crafty, last week and I provided the steps on how to make a cake topper. The photos are courtesy of Lex under Photosaurus-Studio.com. Grab a copy of The Straits Times today, to see detailed instructions on we make our cake toppers.
NOTE: We will hold another workshop this month. Sign-up to our mailing list to get updates on our next schedule.
Most women I know will wear high heels even to a garden event. I just dread it when the heels of my brand new shoes sink into the ground or worse into the mud. I wish I had known about this heel protector from SoleMates when we had our garden wedding. What it does is to increase the surface area of the heel so that it prevents the heel from sinking into the ground.
I also love this simple idea of placing stepping stones for bridesmaids to stand in so that their shoes don’t sink in the grass. The couple, Sarah and Jake, obviously put a lot of thought regarding the comfort of their bridesmaids during their garden ceremony.
I designed a logo for Celebrar Events inspired by my love for calligraphy. Celebrar is a start-up event management service based in the Philippines. The owner wanted an elegant logo that would pair well with the dark and metallic palette she chose.
I hashed out my ideas on paper, trying to come up with flourishes for the border. The drafts were scanned and traced using Illustrator.
I’m waiting to hear from the client on how she feels about the logo. Now I’m going to start designing the business cards and other stationery for her branding kit.
I was so excited when I saw a link to Erika’s blog, the fab and the frugal, featuring her wedding invitation with our M&E wax seal. The black and white invitation looks so elegant and the punch of Kelly green sealing wax adds such a great accent color to their invitation.
I found these cookie cutters while hunting for wedding favours. They are from Williams Sonoma and the set includes pre-made greetings such as Welcome, Happy, Birthday, Holidays, Thank You, From, I Love You, three sets of alphabet letters, extra vowels and other commonly used letters so that you can create a message on your cookie. This would definitely make unique and budget friendly favours to give away.
