Happy Holidays

I’ve been taking time off from posting to finish up projects for clients and get ready for the holidays.  One son is home and the other will be home Saturday!

Various guests will be arriving at different times in the holiday.

The live tree is up, although not yet decorated, and some of the gifts have been purchased, though not yet wrapped.

Pizzelles (Italian cookies) have yet to be made ( my hubbies job:) and out of town packages need mailing.

So I’ve got lots to do!

But before I get on with all of that, I want to take the time to thank you for being a subscriber to this blog.

There are tons of great blogs out there.  And I am still learning how to do this:) So thanks for sticking with me !  I hope I’m sharing things that are helpful or inspirational to you.

I wish you a warm and wonderful holiday!

Feel free to download the “Warmest wishes for the Holidays” graphic  above and use it for whatever you’d like.

It’s made with the Dom Loves Mary font and flourishes.

With gratitude,

Debi

Buy a tote, help Baby Will


I am re-posting this from The Wedding Chicks blog. They are offering these Strong Will totes until Friday to help with the expenses for the family of Baby Will.
You can also just donate on their site.  If you can help with a donation, no matter how little, please do.
Or keep Will and his family in your thoughts and prayers.- Thanks, Debi
Here’s the info about this beautiful baby boy.

Hearts For Will

We wanted to take a brief moment and step away from weddings and into real life and share baby Will’s story. Will is the son of Chris and Lori Ruedi, you may know Lori from from Paper and Thread Studio. Will has a heart AV canal defect (a hole through the middle of his heart), double outlet right ventrical, and overriding aorta. To put it simply, until Will is strong enough to have his surgery – each time he gets sick he has an awfully rough time.

Unfortunately Baby Will came down with a virus and ended up in the hospital last Monday. He has been at Rady Children’s center in San Diego, and isn’t recovering as quickly as we would have hoped. Lori and her family have spent day and night in the hospital praying and waiting for the recovery of their sweet baby boy. You can read more about Will and get updates on Lori’s blog She stood in the storm.

As many of you know, when a loved one is in the hospital our entire lives are suddenly at at standstill and we are unable to go about our daily routines. Because of this, we will be donating all the proceeds from our Strong Will Totes to Lori and her family until this Friday. Not only will you receive a super cute tote, but you be helping out a lovely family. If you would like to help, but could live without the tote, you are welcome to donate.

You may have seen the hashtag #heartsforwill on twitter, facebook and instagram – well, this is Will. He’s a fighter and it’s no coincidence that he’s been dubbed ‘Strong Will’ – I (Amy) have been lucky enough to have a couple visits this past week with Lori, Chris, and Will – and nothing has ever turned me into mush like the smiles I got from Will. Beyond the tubes, wires and IVs – Will smiles.

Please help spread the word about Will, he means the world to us. Above are some photos I took of Will at three days (bottom pics) and eight days old (top pic) and as soon as Will comes home we are going to get his three months photos. So, come on buddy, you get better so we can have some fun. xoxo

DomLovesMary font by Debi Sementelli

I’m very excited to share a sampling of my new “DomLovesMary” cursive font in this personalized wedding artwork.

The font family will consist of three versions of the upper and lower case alphabet that can easily be mixed and matched to create a custom look.

In addition, there will be two sets of flourishes that were specifically created to be added on to the letters. 

You can choose to use the simpler style alphabet for a clean look or dress it up with flourishes to suit your taste !

Kind of like adding accessories to an outfit:)

(Mary loved her jewelry, shoes and purses!)

There are some additional surprises about this script font family that will be revealed later:)

The release date is set for September.  I’ll be sure to post when I have an exact date.

Until then, there will be some contests featuring items created with the font.

The first one will be starting tomorrow, August 21!

I’ll be giving away personalized wedding artwork like the sample above.

Get all the details on  Brenda’s Wedding Blog.

Aren’t those dresses gorgeous?  They were navy and light blue.

Mary always had great taste!

Debi Sementelli featured on “Me and My Girls!”


Gotta love a girlfriend who says all kinds of nice things about you.  And I think she means it too:)

Über talented artist and writer Ronnie Walter has added a  “Me and My Girls” page to her fabulous website. She was sweet enough to feature me, as her first “girl”.  Awww shucks. I’m honored and tickled pink:)

Her talent and wit were first seen many years ago as we collaborated on skits for our high school talent show.  We would come up with the idea, write dialogue for all the parts, decide on costumes and choreography then direct our friends who willingly (?) volunteered to perform the parts along with us.

Did I mention we were pushy ?

Who knew she’d channel all that talent and energy into a fabulous 25 year career in the licensed art world!  (Well I did, of course:)

Over the years, if my son happened to pick up the phone when she’d call, he’d hand it to me and say,  “It’s Ronnie.  Get ready to laugh.”

That pretty much sums up a huge part of how we spend our time together.

We’ve encouraged, cajoled, inspired and applauded each other as we’ve pursued our creative careers and now I’m happy to share her with you.

Ronnie’s work can be found on stationery, gift ware, t shirts and more greeting cards than you can count. If you’re interested, go check out her website!

And for a daily (mostly) chuckle, follow her on facebook.

She is, what we call in Texas terms, a ” Hoot.”

Oh and the fabulous “Ann Richards” like hair?  It’s  real.

What’s not to love?

New Lettering Art Studio Website coming soon!


I’m so excited about my new website.  I’m hoping to go live with it at the end of the week!  Here’s a quick pic to show you my new look.

Lettering Art Studio

It’s still a work in progress.  It’s been a challenge to work on it during wedding season, but it will be worth it when it’s all finished.

The best part is that my blog will now be a part of my website so you can check out both at the same time.  This will mean that my current subscribers will have to re-subscribe.  So I hope you’ll stick with me:)

I’ll have a give away to share.  And I’ll be introducing a DIY Wedding section where I will be posting pics of ideas for invitations, menus, programs and other wedding signage.  I’ll also be sharing pics from DIY brides and other crafters who have used my font to create items for their wedding and other events.

If you have any pics to share, please send them to me at debi@letteringartstudio.com.

Thanks for reading my posts and sharing your thoughts with me.  I hope you’ll continue to enjoy what I have to share.

Best!

Debi
