Cocktails & Calligraphy Anyone? - Houston Calligrapher

It's no surprise that I enjoy wine and spirits....or at least it shouldn't be.  I don't typically lean towards a cocktail unless a few things are at play. 

  • The restaurant where I am dining has a wine list that doesn't feature Burgundy wine or Champagne....sorry I have my preferences :)
  • It has been a challenging day...yes it is possible in the calligraphy business.  It is known :)

The inspiration for today was a French 75.  If you have never had one and would like the recipe, check out the photo below :)

Avión Tequila Engraving Event - Houston Engraver

So I must admit that I swore off tequila in college about 20 years ago.  I had a disagreement with Jose Cuervo...and he won.  It took a few years before I was brave enough to chat with another tequila.  Then I moved to Texas and it became an inevitability.  

Avión Tequila is a beautifully, smooth tequila...very different from my college days :).  It's no secret that I LOVE working with wine and spirits for calligraphy engraving.  It has TRULY become one of my favorite things to do.  So imagine my elation when I was contacted by Avión Tequila for Christmas 2017 engraving events.  These were so much fun and frankly a breeze for calligraphy.  WHAT?!  You mean that the bottle has flat sides and is clear.  Done!  Placing calligraphy in these was easy and such a pleasure!  Cheers!

Gucci Fragrance Bottle Engraving in Houston

As always, it is a pleasure engraving for clients at events here in Houston.  This weekend, I had the privilege of working with Gucci fragrances.  Gucci Bamboo has become a personal favorite and is clearly a favorite of others as well.  It figuratively flew off of the shelves this Mother's Day weekend.  This bottle was also incredibly easy to engrave.  Even better! Cheers!
