I spent the past two weekends at Craft Shows lettering names, etc. on Christmas ornaments.
All my ornaments are glass. I letter, or add artwork, according to what the person would like on their ornament. It’s a huge show, so after they peruse the many booths, they return and I have their item ready to go. Below are samples of ones I created this past weekend. Feel free to contact me to create one for you!

A friend asked me to create a treasure map for her grandchildren. They will all be together at the beach on Thanksgiving, so this is a perfect activity for them and a chance for Grandma to get rid of all her old coins from other countries.
I used gold parchment paper and lettered the title with a #1 Mitchell nib and Moon Palace Sumi ink. The directions were done with a .3 Staedtler pigment liner and the parrot drawn from one she liked. The final thing was to roll it up a couple times and then burn the edges. This will be rolled up and put into a wine bottle to be ‘discovered’ by the grandkids.

I went to the IAMPETH conference in early August in Indianapolis and loved it! I had never lettered with pointed pen before this and was nervous. I took Engrossers Script with Bob Hurford on the first day and loved it. He is a great teacher. I have been practicing ever since and this is my Engrossers/Copperplate alphabet for today! I can see that I need work on many of the letters! :)
I used a Nikko G nib with Moon Palace Sumi Ink.

This envelope was lettered in a navy blue ink for a recent calligraphy project that I did. I developed this style last year for my daughter’s wedding and named it after her.
I am available to letter the envelopes for your invitation. My pricing is very reasonable and the turn-around time is approximately two weeks, depending on the amount of envelopes you need lettered. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
