So I've created these laser cut names for place cards ---people's names, but as always my clients are the best resource that I have for new ideas. This client said that it would be really great if she had names for the ice cream bar at my wedding. Seriously?! A) Super cool that you are having an ice cream bar at your wedding. B) Let's take this sign idea to the next level....Let's laser cut it!....BOOM! Love it!

I've been using agate stones with calligraphy for place cards, but I had a client ask about table names. My clients are the best inspiration. These can match the same small agate stones that you order from me, but larger. This Houston calligrapher is just pleased to be able to offer these to you. Cheers!
This year has really been my "anything but paper" year with my work. These laser cut wood names were created for a client out of St. Louis for an event. I think that these came out nicely as she will be using them as placecards. Cheers!

So yes, clearly I had become ridiculously behind on my thank you notes. When I was at the penman's conference (yes, we have those), I met a gentleman that was kind enough to promise to mail me engraving burs that I had yet to try. Within a few weeks of being home, they arrived. My work schedule was insane to say the least and I sent an email to convey thanks just so that I didn't seem like a complete savage. However, I take my stationery very seriously and committed to send a proper thank you note when the work schedule slowed down a bit. Here it 'tis.
Played around with the lighting a bit to make it show up better on camera. However, iridescent jade is clearly one of those colors that looks better in person than it photographs. Who knew? :) Here we go! Cheers!
Quick thank you note (that is incredibly late) to an extremely talented letterpress stationer in Dallas. Sending this along with a few requested samples. Cheers!

I must admit that I do LOVE commercial hand lettering (my Slinging Ink side of business). The avenues for creativity are endless. Here is something that I'm working on for a client that sells.....you guessed it: DRESSES! Cheers! #HoustonHandLettering
I have been very fortunate to maintain a full calendar with jobs. As anyone will tell you, that is a blessing but every blue moon it is a curse. When your calendar is booked you usually don't have wiggle room for 'unforeseen circumstances'....such as power outages. Today, my electricity went out due to the storms that we have been experiencing here in Houston. At the same time, I was working on a job that needed to be completed today as there are jobs booked directly behind it on the calendar. That meant that I needed to work in the dark. Thank goodness for my trusty battery operated laser.
I am happy to say that I did finish today and it also made for a cool picture on my phone. #MakeItWork. Cheers!
So I'm always up for writing on anything that is not paper. Agate stones are so great as they calligraph like butter, are gorgeous and are available in so many colors. Love this. We did this project in a modern hand as it seemed to just fit. These will be available on the website and the Etsy shop. Cheers!
When we got married, we decided to do a "destination wedding". I love them as they tend to be much less stress and it's even better if the locale is gorgeous. This New Orleans couple is getting married in Paris and requested my services for their envelope addressing, which I completed last week. The first pic is in white ink (one of my favs), but the project was actually in black ink (the following pictures). We did this in the Business Casual style as they wanted something simple and cool. I love it! #neworleanscalligraphy #neworleanscalligrapher
