I love this time of year…sweater weather, colorful mums, hot cider and, of course, Halloween!
I’ve created some Halloween-themed envelopes, chalkboards, place cards & signs. Enjoy!

And here’s my favorite Halloween project this season….a GIANT chalkboard (4′ x 3′). My daughter Hannah (a professional illustrator) sketched out the skeleton for me (took her, like, 5 minutes!)

Happy Fall, y’all!
Here’s my “Finespun” writing style, using a traditional hand-dipped calligraphy nib (very fine line).
I love the look of this style on trendy Kraft paper envelopes.

Here’s the “Finespun” writing style using a monoline gel pen in Navy – still elegant,
but far less time consuming (and therefore less expensive for my clients!).

The “Finespun” style looks GREAT on large envelopes! My apprentice Hitch agrees.
