After what seems like a year of planning, I’ve finally reopened my shop and am excited to bring you a new look and new products. I’ve got more in the works, and even more dancing around in my brain, so stay tuned for much much more. Until then, take a look, even shop around if you like. If you feel so inclined to make a purchase, use code FREESHIPYAY to receive free shipping until this Saturday, February 21.

WASHINGTON DC_Winifred Paper Class

I’ve been working hard at scheduling new cities to visit this spring, and I’m excited to announce I’ll be coming to both Washington DC and Kansas City in the next few months! I’ll head to Kansas City in March, and will be teaching at Mash Handmade. In April, I’ll teach at the Winifred Paper Studio, pictured here, in Georgetown. Both classes are now available for registration.

Additionally, I’ll be teaching two more classes at Mockingbird Domestics in Austin in March. Registration is now available.

Blue Eye Brown Eye_Holiday Gift Cards 2014
Anna Routh Photography

I’m excited to announce class gift certificates just in time for the holiday season! Here’s how it works:

I have dedicated two specific beginner class dates for gift certificates only. One Dallas and one Fort Worth location is available. When you purchase a spot in one of these classes, you are buying a spot for the person you wish to gift the class to for that specific date, time and location. After the purchase, I’ll be in touch with you and then mail you the card photographed above (a mint green card with gold foil printing) that states inside the recipient has received a beginner course with the date, location and time. I’ll calligraph the recipient’s name on the mint green envelope in gold ink and will mail you the card to give as a gift.

To purchase, visit my registration page, and purchase one of the GIFT CARD classes. The password for the classes are as follows:


I ask that these are for gift card purchases only. You’ll see the price is a little higher to cover the cost of the card plus shipping. These are the only two dates I am offering as gift card options. Purchases are non-refunable or transferable.

As always, please contact me with any questions! Happy Holidays!

Indian Summer Workshop_Brush Calligraphy Marfa Letterpress Suite

Cibolo Creek Ranch, nestled deep in the west Texas desert, what a magical place. This past summer I traveled with the bows and arrows team to Marfa to teach a mini calligraphy lesson at their Indian Summer Workshop. There, 13 attendees learned the ins and outs of floral design, styling, and a little bit about calligraphy, too. It was a wonderful trip, and here is a snippet of some of the styling and floral sessions (with the suite I designed for the photo shoot above). I’ll share more about my calligraphy class here later. All images were captured by Ryan Ray.
