You may have heard by now that Pantone named emerald the color of the year for 2013. It’s a bold yet sophisticated hue that (for some of us) may seem a bit intimidating to style into our wardrobes and homes. Don’t worry though, we’re in luck because emerald green is perfect for a St. Paddy’s Day celebration!

Shades of emerald will make any party lively and chic. So, for your next event, why not channel your inner Dorothy and take a trip to the Emerald City?
(Speaking of which… does anyone want to see the new Oz movie with me?) ;)
Valentine’s day is right around the corner. I’m a huge fan of flowers and dark chocolate, but one thing I look forward to each year is getting a sweet card from Mr. Husband.
Show your love this holiday with a pretty card for your sweetheart or BFF. There are so many fresh and lovely designs to be found, and I promise they’ll make your loved one smile. Here are a few of my favorites…
1) Sparks by Blue Eye Brown Eye, $8
2) Peace, Love & Cupcakes by Parrott Design Studio, $4.50
3) Je t’aime by Rifle Paper Co., $4.50
4) Zealous Arrows by Lindsay Letters, $5
5) Hearts & Hearts by Inclosed, $3
I adore Rifle Paper Co.’s hand-painted flowers and hot pink lettering. What’s your Valentine’s day tradition? Do you send or exchange cards?
The One Charming Life shop has officially opened. If you’re in need of pretty hand lettering for a special occasion, I’d love to meet you over on etsy.
And be sure to stay tuned for more… I’ll be adding new items over the next couple of weeks. :) Thanks for your love & support!
I can’t believe Christmas is here! Here are a few shots of our holiday cards. The lettering is calligraphy, and the picture is one of our favorites from our trip to Norway. :)
Have a charming holiday with your loved ones.
Last month, one of my fabulously creative friends asked me to create stationery for her mom and two sisters. It wasn’t something I’d done before, but I was so inspired by her ideas and couldn’t wait to get started.
Kathryn (a classy Southern girl) asked for monograms in calligraphy. So perfect. I did some research and we decided on colorful monogrammed note cards and notepads. But after we got started, she came up with a brilliant addition: custom rubber stamps so their charming little monograms can be pressed wherever they wish. Adorable!
I adore how they turned out. I can’t wait to make and gift a few of my own… and perhaps make one for myself as well! :)
I loved doing something different for these baby shower invites. The whimsical lettering is so playful and unique. And the envelopes looked lovely paired with the vintage-inspired invites inside… perfect for a casual winter get-together celebrating the mother-to-be.
Special thanks & congratulations to the cutest baby boy and his sweet momma. :)
