Calligraphy Love – ended

See those cool paisleys on either side of this writing? And did you notice my new updated logo and rose? Well, Melissa Esplin is the awesome artist who created this art for my blog! I gave her an inspiration board and some stream of consciousness randomness and she made the most fabulous design. I was SO thrilled. I think she’d make a highly sought after fabric designer. Her work has a whimsical and youthful flair with a decidedly strong sense of style. That’s just my opinion. You have to go check it out for yourself!

All of you crafters and DIY-addicts out there might just want to bookmark her blog – it’s been in my Google Reader for a while! Melissa is constantly creating. Whether it is refreshing the look and style of her home, refashioning clothes, or painting Melissa keeps busy with art. I think that must be part of what makes her so good at it, just giving it time in her life. Practice makes perfect right?

So you must be on the edge of your seat wondering what kind of fabulousness of Melissa’s I’m giving away. Or if you’re one of those people who reads the subject of a blog post, you may have guessed it!! Calligraphy! Cool, eh? So, it is my pleasure to announce that the winner of this giveaway will receive a ready-to-frame, 5×7 certificate with you & your loved one’s first names ornately hand-calligraphed in the colors of your choice!

Here is a recent item she created with an awesome quote! Check out more of her calligraphy work here.
