The MM Ink Shop

Today’s post is an extra special one because I have some exciting news to share with you! It has been a long time dream of mine to expand my services by also offering carefully crafted, high quality paper goods with my calligraphy, to help inspire ways to love well and capture life’s special moments. After a year of solid planning, I am thrilled to announce the recent launch of the MM Ink Shop!  And I am SO very thankful for all of the positive feedback the online Shop has received since the launch! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!

This debut line is all about documenting milestones, expressing thoughts, and celebrating special moments together as a couple (and copper foil calligraphy was a must!!):

The “Our First Year” keepsake book can be a perfect anniversary gift to record your first “paper” year together as husband and wife! You can also have it personalized with a handwritten love note, or anniversary message done in calligraphy. Just select “Add Love Note” before adding this item to the shopping cart. Then, include the wording in an email to me with your order number, and I will hand letter your note in a beautiful script!

The Story of Us” journal can begin well before the “I do’s,” by documenting special dating moments, the engagement, and your marriage counseling notes. Or, whether you just got married or you are celebrating your 10th anniversary, this journal is great no matter where you are along your marriage journey. It is beautifully designed and available in either genuine leather or natural linen.

Visit the Shop to read more details about each of these keepsakes and to see the other items in the collection (which are also available on Etsy). Cheers to love and loving well!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great time ringing in the New Year and celebrating with the ones you love! I am already excited for wedding season and helping sweet couples everywhere celebrate this special time in their lives! And if you follow color trends to help set the tone for your big day, for the first time in Pantone’s history, there are TWO colors for 2016 – Rose Quartz and Serenity! The warm and embracing rose tone, with the cooler blue color forms a beautiful union that can be used throughout your wedding decor and beautiful calligraphy.

There is much to be said about the beauty of winter. The glistening white snow falling from the sky, the cold fresh clean air taken in with every breath, or just the thought of cuddling next to a nice warm fireplace with your loved ones, makes this time so wonderful! Check out my tips below and see how calligraphy can be incorporated in your home that will make this winter season extra special for you and your family now and throughout the coming years!


Inspired by Winter Whites

Calligraphy Tips:

- “Cozy up” with your loved ones with a calligraphy monogram on a set of cup sleeves that you can place around your hot cup of cocoa.

-  A “Home Sweet Home” sign in calligraphy can be placed over your fireplace or anywhere else fitting in your home.

-  Surprise your loved ones and ring in the New Year together with my “Cheers to Us” calligraphy coasters that can be used year round!

-  Your wedding album, with highlights from the wedding written in calligraphy, is one of my favorite ways to cherish and savor beautiful memories!

-  Kept your calligraphy place cards from the wedding? Make copies and create gift tags for that special present you want to give to your better half.
