Calligraphy + Keepsake Wedding Card Books

A Collaboration with Dreamy Elk Photography & Design

The long heartfelt notes from your best friends, the congrats and well wishes from your family members, and the beautiful pictures on the front are all reasons we hold onto our wedding cards. They hold so much sentimental value, so why keep them in a box that you’ll never look at again? Emily Ross of Dreamy Elk Photography & Design and I have teamed up to offer one-of-a-kind keepsake albums that you can treasure for years to come.

Here's my poor attempt at "styling" for a photo the last minute before I packaged this globe up to be shipped. 
Painting these wedding guest globes makes my heart so full! It's one of the first products I listed in my Etsy shop almost 3 years ago. Since then, I've painted 70+ globes that are now treasured in homes all over the world.
My Instagram game has been so weak this year. I haven't had the motivation to post much because scrolling through Instagram makes me feel like I'm not good enough, my work isn't good enough. But today, I'm reminded to focus on my progress, not comparing with anyone else. This is the 3rd invitation suite I've put together for styled shoots and I am so so proud of it. It's not perfect, not even close. But you know what? I'm trying new things, learning new skills, and putting myself out there. And that is a win I should celebrate! 
Will you share with me one of your wins from this past week? Big or small, it's worth celebrating and I want to cheer you on!
Mm how I wish I could have some more of @harvestmoon_catering's delicious food! If you're planning a wedding in Maine, you must check them out 👌🏼 Custom menu design + calligraphy name cards by @letterandadore
Wrapping up a custom handmade print and the sweetest little outfit for my baby niece on this rainy Saturday. I can't wait to celebrate with the new mommy at the baby shower next week!

What are you doing this weekend? Hopefully something that's relaxing and puts a smile on your face!
