{Calligraphy Monday} Family Tree Project

One of the best parts about doing what we do is getting to know our clients on a personal level.
Oftentimes we share in aspects of their lives that are not only personal and important, but are memories in the making. It is truly a privilege.

One recent example of this privilege is when we had the opportunity to create and illustrate a family tree project for a client.

After hours of planning how the design would look in a large, illustrated format, Jillian began the process of meticulously writing each person's name, years, and important locations on the paper.

She also drew the illustrations by hand, based on inspirations from the client.

The family crests were incorporated as well.

What an honor it was to share in the history of this client's family!
The time, planning, and attention to detail paid off to create a family heirloom that will hopefully be treasured for generations to come! Thank you, Lou, for allowing us to help you create this special representation of your family's history.

We also wanted to remind our readers that we will be participating in West Elm Santa Monica's Bridal Event this Sunday, August 3rd, from 12 to 2pm!

*As of today, there were 20 spots left!
Don't forget you MUST rsvp in order to attend!*
**Rsvp HERE to snag your spot to this fabulous event!**
Remember admission is free!!

Have a great week! :)

{Calligraphy Monday} Time to Pop the Champagne + West Elm Bridal Event

Hello 2 Hearts readers!
We hope you had a fabulous weekend, enjoying the gorgeous weather. We have some fun stuff to share with you today…so let's get to it!

First up, we are so excited to be participating in The Bridal Event hosted by West Elm Santa Monica!

Join us at West Elm Santa Monica on Sunday, August 3rd from 12pm - 2pm
for hors d'oeuvres, a photo booth, registry info, bridal make up tips, and of course, some special on-site calligraphy services from yours truly! :)

And the best part is, admission is free!
However, you must rsvp in order to attend (you must be on the guest list in order to participate). 
**Rsvp on Facebook here and on Eventbrite here**
Again, you MUST rsvp to attend!

What a fun way to get ideas for your registry, your home, and your upcoming wedding! Should be a ball, so we hope to see you there!

And in honor of calligraphy Monday, we wanted to share this fabulous project we did for a bride recently. This sweet bride wanted to use these rosé champagne bottles for favors at her wedding, but she also wanted them to serve double-duty as place cards. So in steps Jillian with some coordinating calligraphy :)

She used a pretty metallic rosy-pink ink for each guest's name.

All arranged on a table, the favors make quite a stunning display, don't they?
So fun! This idea could be used for a variety of occasions, and makes such a special favor!

That's it for now, but we hope you have a fabulous Monday!

{Calligraphy Monday} Birthday Beach Box & Cynla Notepad Giveaway Winners!

Good morning 2 Hearts readers!

We hope you had a wonderful long weekend, celebrating the 4th, eating good food, and hopefully spending lots of time with family and friends!

We thought this calligraphy project would be perfect to share today, since we're officially in summer mode now :) We created this "beach box" for a client who wanted to commemorate her husband's birthday in a special way, as the beach was a special place to them.

Jillian covered the lid with a beautiful blue card stock, and wrote the recipient's name in white calligraphy.

The box itself was filled with sand, shells, starfish, and sea glass…all little reminders of special memories on the beach.

Jillian also hand-wrote the note to accompany the box...

What a beautiful way to celebrate your love on a special birthday! We know this gift will be a treasure her husband. And this idea could easily be modified and used for an anniversary as well!

Finally, we wanted to announce the winners of our Cynla bridal notepad giveaway! :)

Our two randomly chosen winners are…

Leah Grossman
