Calligraphy Inspiration: Bohemian Ink

Today I’m happy to be sharing the work of Bohemian Ink of North Carolina. Jessica Gatlyn’s work caught my eye immediately, with its wild and energetic lines. Jessica specializes in modern calligraphy, but there’s something about the aesthetic of her work that has me picturing the romances of Jane Austen novels. I’m sure I’m not alone on that one. Take a look at her work and see for yourself! – Julie

Pretty Paper in the Office: Measuring Tape

One of my most handy purchases to date has got to be my Hoechstmass tape measure from Crate & Barrel years ago. It tucks away in any and all bags and comes to my rescue on most days – whether at work or on a thrifting/antiquing excursion over the weekend. Now that garage sale and flea market weather is…almost certainly back, I thought I would put together a round up of some of the most clever and colorful tape measures that will ensure you always get the right fit. – Julie

Calligraphy Inspiration: Wondrous Whimsy

This month, I’m excited to share the work of Samantha Burnett, the talented hand behind Austin, Texas-based Wondrous Whimsy. With a background in graphic design, Samantha taught herself the art of calligraphy, which was a wise decision in my opinion. Her wide array of lettering styles vary from dip pen to airy washes of painted letterforms. Her website and Instagram feed are filled to the brim with calligraphic inspiration. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to stop by her Etsy shop where you can pick up prints, custom stamps, and more. –Julie
