The Stockmarket

The Stockmarket | lovely letters

Dear Friend,

The Stockmarket was beyond words.

I had the best time prepping, setting up, meeting the other vendors, chatting with the patrons, selling my calligraphy, and basically sweating my face off all day. It couldn’t have been better.

The things though that put the day over the top for me were the friends.

My dear friend Hannah gave me her whole day and was the most selfless support I could have asked for. She helped me run errands, build shelves, pack and unpack the car, and really she is what got me through the day. Thank you thank you for your consistent and unwavering friendship!

And the new friends! I was lucky enough to have my little space set up across the way from Jenny of Hip to the Jive, a fabulous vintage boutique. Jenny and her lovely friend Elizabeth were a breath of fresh air and were styled to perfection. Jenny and I have since met up for coffee to share notes on life, love, and business. Here’s to blossoming new friendships with local entrepreneurs!

Overall, one of the best weekends so far this year and I am anxiously counting down the days until the Stockmarket’s return on July 18!

Are you a local maker interested in being a part of the next Stockmarket? Sign up here!

xx Katie

Dear December

Dear December,

I know I say this maybe too much, but oh my word last month flew by! November is already over!? How did that happen!? Where was I!?

I hope your Thanksgiving was lovely because mine sure was. Not only did I have an incredible Thanksgiving meal but I also finished some Christmas shopping and helped pick out, set up, and decorate my tree! December, you are already in full swing!

This month, while of course I am thrilled for the typical December festivities, I am most excited to kick things off on the highest note of them all! I have officially launched the calligraphy services portion of this endeavor here at lovely letters. Calligraphy services! Eeee!

So, December (and friends), the next time you’re looking for a little pizzaz for your party…     calligraphy!… lovely letters!! Let’s get in touch and work out the details together.

A Perfect Weekend

A Perfect Weekend | lovely letters

Dear Friend,

Last weekend was particularly perfect.

Saturday night I went to the most beautiful wedding with the most handsome man by my side (if you don’t believe me see here and here). After holiday season, wedding season is my favorite. I love dressing up, seeing love everywhere, dancing all night, open bars, so many things! So suffice it to say, last Saturday was ideal.

Then Sunday rolled around and capped everything off with Continue reading
