Hand lettering and calligraphy is an art I love and I have always loved doodling and writing script in my spiral notebook.
Every once in a while in blog land, I discover something to read that totally knocks my socks off. That is how I felt when I discovered Maiedae - the dynamic best friend duo of Savannah and Jenny! They blog, design, film, create, coordinate and inspire all while staying humble mommies to little boys (and a little girl on the way for Savannah) and looking fab doing it! These lovely ladies blow me away on a daily basis.
Since I have a
At the risk of sounding like a stalker, I have accumulated quite a collection of her hand lettering work.
My screen saver has been the same inspiring phrase for the last year or so.
Several art prints for myself as well as others for gifts - seriously, they look beautiful in a frame and make for a very thoughtful gift when given to the right person.
I ordered a custom address stamp with Houston's address on it to use on our wedding invitations, RSVP envelopes and thank you cards. It was such a time saver and my Maid of Honor came over to help me stamp everything and she made quick work of the envelopes while I hand addressed them. Thanks, Leah!
I am in love with our custom wedding print. - I'll share it when my collage wall is complete.
Jenny was so patient with my many requests and revisions to the custom pieces and she always includes a super sweet note in the package. It is the extra things like that that make me so happy to support small businesses and creatives like Jenny.
One of my favorites is her USA Canvas Poster.
We purchased the map to hang in our guest bedroom that we are decorating in a travel theme! Right now it looks more like a wedding-theme-disaster-zone with all of our reception decor strewn about the room, but at least it is corralled in one space and not all over the house.
The guest room is going to be a place where Houston and I can display treasures and photographs from our world adventures while still keeping a nice bedroom available for guests. My black bedroom set fits nicely in the space and provides a little extra storage in the dressers for things we don't need on a daily basis (scarves, of course!)
I love the watercolor detail on the canvas - the little water spots add so much character!
I can't wait to finish hanging art and keepsakes and share the finished product with you! It will be so exciting to see some of the beautiful things Houston has collected through the years displayed on the walls.
