Chalkboard Magic

Before my son was born I was a fifth grade teacher.  I’m still a teacher at heart, so naturally I love writing on chalkboards.  The beautiful sound made by the connection of chalk on slate is musical, along with the sharp contrast of white and black.  Here are some beautiful chalkboard creations, along with my newest invitations collection.

Chalkboard Wedding Decor

Maybe it’s the teacher in me, but I’ve always loved the sharp contrast between a nice slate chalkboard and a thick white line of chalk; not to mention the feel and the sound of the smooth chalk edging its way along the satin finish of the slate.  Not that many chalkboards are made of slate any more, but they definitely give a vintage, rustic and charming vibe, and there are so many ways to incorporate chalkboards into wedding decor!

Nicole’s Letterpress Menu

I’ve been so honored to work with Nicole throughout the past several months on various calligraphy projects including her save the date envelopes, invitation lettering and envelope addressing, and today I just finished lettering various signage and menu cards. I just had to include a couple of photos of her beautiful letterpress menu place cards. Beautiful!  What do you think?
