Martha Stewart Weddings Spring 2011 ~ Written By Hand

I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of this featured story,
Written by Hand, in the Spring 2011 issue of
Martha Stewart Weddings.
My work was featured, along with some of my favorite calligraphers - both friends and teachers, in an article on the many ways to incorporate hand-lettering into everything from your stationery and vows to the favors and food at your reception.
I was also asked to pen the title of the opening page (above) to the main stories in the magazine.
The 8-page article is a must see/read for anyone planning a wedding or an event.
It is a really beautiful article and I am so honored to be among such spectacular company!

For now ~ D is for Daffodil

Because sometimes real life gets in the way ~
the D in my Alphabet Project will be Delinquent until
later next week.
I had several rush orders to get out,
thus the D in Delay.
For now, I leave you with D is for Daffodil ~
which are two illustrations I did, as a gift, for a wonderful client
when their little dog Daffodil died, unexpectedly, last year.
(yes, I did my typical 'two takes' on it,
using two different papers)

...and actually my daffodils are starting to bloom.
It is beginning to look a lot like Spring!
