The Scriptorium is my work journal; a place for show and tell.

Getting those lines straight

Here you can see my guide sheet illuminated by my light pad. I create a custom guide sheet for every envelope based on the script I will be using the letter the envelopes.  

When I am lettering opaque or heavily lined envelopes, I cannot use my light pad so I have to lightly mark the guide lines in pencil on each envelope, letter the address, and then when the envelope is completed, dried, and proofed, I must go back and erase the light pencil lines.

And sometimes I have to use chalk lines when the light pencil lines don't show up!


Choosing the right method and the right tools is all in a days work!


The Knot Best of Weddings


January 8, 2015—I am pleased to announce that I have been selected as a 2015 ­­winner in The Knot Best of Weddings, an award representing the highest-rated wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples, their families and wedding guests on The Knot.  This is the third year I have been selected for The Knot Best of Weddings. 

In 2015, only 2% of the 250,000 local wedding professionals listed on have received this distinguished accolade.  The Knot Best of Weddings provides a by-couples, for-couples guide to the top wedding professionals across the country. To determine the winners, The Knot assessed a sample of almost one million real reviews across the various vendor categories—venues, musicians, florists, photographers, caterers and more—that a bride or groom would want in order to inspire, plan and pull off their own unique wedding.
