I'm so excited about my new envelope lettering class on November 29th, that I wanted to share a little sneak peek. Each day this week, I'll be breaking down the basics of how to letter an envelope. They'll each be around 10 minutes, so it'll be easy to digest and follow along. At the end of the week, you'll have a gorgeous, finished piece to wow your friends with.

If you're more of a hands on learner who likes to ask questions, loves supply goodies and a fun night out - then head over to www.southernbeedesigns.com/workshops to nab your spot!

The +River Room in Wilmington, NC has been an unexpected and amazing place to grow my creativity. See, they have a bar painted with chalkboard paint (genius!) and I often letter the board for the couples getting married there. Using the same canvas over and over, repetitiveness could easily happen.

This bar, silly as it sounds, has pushed me to connect with my clients on a more personal level. In an effort to keep designs fresh and special, I always ask what is special to them? How did they meet? Any funny stories or inside jokes we can hide within your design? - Instead of just "Show me your Pinterest board", I'm taking my inspiration directly from my clients - and no two couples are EVER the same.

So thanks Tina and Brian and the RiverRoom team! I'm so happy to have built such a great relationship with you all and this fantastic space!

4 years ago, I was a completely green, newbie business owner. All I had was my passion for letters and design, and a will to learn the rest. Though I'm far more confident in my management abilities, I am constantly humbled by the amount of creative talent I get to work alongside in this industry. I'm even more amazed that these talented folks - including some industry leaders - have recognized my work. #smallbusinesshustle #passion #livingthedream #growingstrongereveryday

As a creative business owner, it's easy to compare my work to others and beat myself up for not having as many great ideas, or as much publicity. Sometimes I just have to step back, let go, and let God. He's always there helping me grow and giving me inspiration. I want to be recognized for the quality of my work - and that takes time. He gives me the strength and patience that will allow me to succeed, and the humbleness to be proud of others in their successes. How beautiful is that?
