Hello all you lovely people! How was your weekends? Are you feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed on this muggy Monday? I have to share with you tonight a bit of pretty to lift your spirits, if the Monday blues happen to be getting you down. How uber lovely is this butterfly illustration and calligraphy quote? It’s one of my faves, and I know the receivers of this custom illustration love it too!
If you love this as much as I do and would like one for someone special who is expecting, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a selection of limited edition, hand numbered & signed prints available and ready to go now! Have a squizz at them here.
There’s just something about handmade kraft paper signs! Especially when done in white and with wreaths. I had the pleasure of creating these two for the super lovely Laura and James wedding last year, and I’m looking forward to creating some for our own wedding next month. The list of things to make for our nuptials seems to be growing longer every day… I just keep finding so many creative and inspiring ideas!
Love these babies as much as I do? Get in touch to chat about creating one for your own big day or special event!
Ahhh, you can’t beat a good wreath, nor beautiful kraft paper! Check them out combined here for the order of service for the lovely Laura & James wedding last year. Their big day was a relaxed affair, styled with olive branches and handmade touches. Tomorrow I will be sharing the hand painted kraft paper signs I made for this cool couple too!
I think an order of service for your wedding is a special little extra, a nice momento for your guests. Not to mention, a great way to help friends from afar and distant cousins figure out ‘who’s who’! I’m looking forward to creating ours next month (squeal of design delight!).
Hi hi! I have some fuzzy wuzzy cuteness to share here this evening – a birth announcement custom illustration for a beautiful baby girl! This was a gift from a close relative, and they requested a lil bunny be drawn for Emily Joy. I’m loving the results – such a sweet & inquisitive bunny she is, don’t you think?
Welcome to the world Emily Joy!
Work in progress! My illustrations are done with a bamboo skewer and indian ink x If you love this as much as I do and would like one for your precious bundle of joy, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com

Eee I’m so super excited! Absolutely loving all the RSVPs arriving daily in our mailbox – I mean who doesn’t love mail? REAL mail? It’s so exciting to receive something special in the post, huh? Our own wedding stationery journey has just further strengthened my feelings that posted invitations make the whole experience for everyone just that extra bit special. Even better when it contains news from your loved ones! I’m so over the moon to hear that some faraway girlfriends from overseas will be making the trip to join us on our big day! Big smiles here in the Just My Type household this week. So, with the sun shining and my mind preoccupied with thoughts about mail – its no surprise to have put this new inspiration board tonight! Ah, an alfresco dined wedding, complete with rosé and calligraphied kraft envelopes. Beautiful x

Happy Thursday, virtual friends! Not long until the weekend now, it’s down hill from here… Have you got plans? We will be working hard on making our house pretty for our wedding guests who will be visiting in March! Just need to finish off painting the exterior, choose a new front door, create & plant the gardens… eep! Exciting times ahead though. I’ve been reflecting on 2013, and I had some pretty exciting times last year too. Particularly for this wee blog and my design business. I was super lucky to have a piece from one of my wedding stationery suites feature in a mood board over at Burnetts Boards, I started contributing to the ever stylish and super popular Paper & Lace blog, and I got to work on the most awesome client projects on so many kinds of pretty!
Thanks 2013, and all the people in it – you’ve been awesome and I feel blessed. Bring on 2014, I cant wait to see what you have in store for me x
Burnetts Boards is a site of beautiful and inspiring wedding mood boards, of which I have been along time admirer. Sara, who is the lady behind this site, is ridiculously lovely and super supportive. You can check out the board my work popped up in here. Better get making some gorgeous stationery so I can feature again in 2014!
Jax from the super successful NZ wedding blog Paper & Lace approached me last year saying she loved my lil inspiration boards, and asked if I would like to contribute to the P&L blog! Umm, of course I said heck yes! So much fun to get to work with such an on-to-it and lovely lady! And she wrote the coolest bio about me too.
Right, well I better get to work then huh!
