Upscale with Prentice Penny

Back in October, I got a call asking if I would be on a television show teaching a guy how to do calligraphy. Of course I said yes.

Motherhood Press

Last summer I got an email from a woman who had admired my work for the Blessed is She advent journal. She wondered if I would be available to help her re-brand and launch her business, Motherhood Press. When she told me that she lived in Indianapolis, I couldn't believe it. I was going to be there teaching a class the following week. 

It turned out that we even knew many of the same people. And moment after moment, we saw how our lives were already intertwined. That began the journey of the past eight months working on her story, brand and product development. 

Kate is the mother of four children and has so much experience to share with other women who are looking for order in their lives. We are so excited to launch her Orderly Days® notebook on her brand new website. 

You can read more about her story here and grab some amazing products that we designed for her in her shop!

Beginner Brush Lettering Class at Makers Mess

We had another great class at our local art studio, Makers Mess. The sun was shining in as everyone arrived and got their glasses of wine and cheese. 

With an intimate group of ladies for the evening, we really got to know each other and have some laughs. 

Here Erica was showing them how to get an ombre effect with the watercolor paints. 

We are so in love with our brand new Brush Lettering Workbooks and were so excited to see them in use!

If you're not in an area that has in person classes, you can purchase a brand new kit with all the supplies in our class in our shop!

The Cyclical Pattern of my Dating Life

Every once in awhile, I share about my dating life on Verily. I've spent most of my life as a single woman so I'm really good at that. So when I try to date or do date or decide not to date anymore, it's gotten to be pretty funny. 

My most recent realization is that I download dating apps when I'm fertile...

"I downloaded Tinder when I was living in New York in 2012, right when it came out. My guy friends who told me about the new dating app helped me pick out my photos and come up with something super-witty to say in my brief description. Then I was off to swiping on my own. I recall my dad asking me why all of a sudden I was using more than half of our family data plan. "I’m trying to find love!" I told him"
