Recent Projects

I thought I would share a few of my most recent projects, since I have had so many creative brides and unique clients this Summer!

First up is Erin. She wanted escort cards and table numbers to match her invitation suite. Here is the thank you card from her invitation suite (side note: I didn't create the invitation suite, just the escort cards & table numbers!) -

And here are a few of the escort cards I created to go along with that:

Fun right? I love her color scheme!

Another fun bride was having a fabulous destination wedding, and threw a few celebrity invites into the mix....

Such a fun idea!!

And just yesterday, I did the calligraphy for the Lexington Junior League Horse Show. It is a wonderful event, and I'm so happy I got to be a part of it!

I know it looks black in the photo, but those were gorgeous dark green and pink table tents. Love those!

Hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of what I've been up to this Summer!

What the heck is going on...

Thanks for stopping by the NEW Blink Calligraphy Blog. I'm sure you've noticed by now that the previous posts were all strangely posted on the same day and about a variety of subjects. That is because I am currently in the process of switching this blog from Wordpress to Blogger. I tried really hard, but I'm just not a Wordpress girl, so back to Blogger it is!

New posts will be up on a weekly basis, and hopefully on a daily basis very soon! Please stop back by for new posts next week, and feel free to cruise our website in the meantime!

We LOVE Appreciation Photos!

One of our recent clients, Lina, sent us this photo of the calligraphy order that we recently completed for her because she thought they looked so pretty! Thanks, Lina! You made our day!

We still have a few openings left in May for new orders, so contact us soon if you would like to work with us!

Best of Etsy: DIY Paperie

While our "Best of Etsy" segment normally features several sellers, today we decided to do something different! We are SO in love with one seller's work that we are giving them all the love today! That seller is:
D.I.Y. Paperie is a BRAND NEW seller that specializes in print-your-own invitations in some super sweet and modern designs. Here are some of our favorites:


And our personal favorite... WHERE were these agendas in May '09 when I needed them?

Not only are these invitations, save-the-dates and extras unique and fresh, but also the pricing is very budget-friendly! We're smitten... and we think you will be too!
