Cupcakes and Calligraphy

When Anna and I did our little photo shoot a few weeks ago, we threw in some Stir Crazy Baked Goods cupcakes for fun with some calligraphy cards. Don’t they look just so yummy? (It’s ’cause they are)! Be sure to check out Stir Crazy Baked Goods website, and keep posted – because they’re setting up shop in South Main Village, too.

Just a little note to say…

Just a little note to say letterpress sets are now available in the etsy shop! Thanks to Anna Routh Photography for the lovely images. Oh, and that fantastic glitter twine? It’s Knot & Bow and you should go get ya some!

A preview: florals

Last week Anna came over to the studio to work her photography magic and we did a product shoot that was way overdue (can’t wait to share images). I put together a couple of bouquets for the portfolio and here’s a peek at them in Instagrams. If y’all haven’t noticed, I’m obsessed with Instagram. It’s my favorite app right now, hands down. If you’re on it – I’d love to follow you. Find me under username @laurenessl!

One of my favorite blooms is the parrot tulip (my own bouquet was made up of orange parrot tulips) and I found the most beautiful slightly peach parrot tulips at my local market. Combined with kale,  hydrangea, and various greenery, the colors created the most beautiful, muted color scheme.

I wanted to create a different shape for the second bouquet – one meant to be cradled in the nook of your arm, rather than carried front and center. I incorporated succulents among anemones and other colorful floral to add a punch of color.
