Free Calligraphy Valentines!


So it’s valentines day and I thought I’d make some free valentines for you!

Just right click on any of the images below and click “Save image as”.

Save to your Desktop so you don’t forget where you put it!

They are made to fit a 5″x7″ card.  So you will need to insert them into your publishing document (Word, Photoshop, Illustrator..etc) and size down to fit onto half of an 8.5″ x 11″.

Then cut out and place on a colored piece of card stock folded in half. Red would be a good choice.

You may want to trim them up smaller so there’s enough of the paper color underneath showing to make a border.

Insert your own personal message inside:)

DIY Advent Calendar Tree for kids


DIY Advent Tree, Christmas tree, Advent Calendar

Today I am sharing this darling Advent Calendar Tree with you.

The idea came from the lovely Mindy Rives, mom of two beautiful little girls.  Instead of the traditional candy treat, each day is filled with a fun Christmas activity for your kids/family to participate in.

Here’s what Mindy did to create this tree for about $15.00 minus the tree:

1. She ordered the number printables off of Etsy (they were like $3.50)…printed, cut and glued them on miniature treat bags/envelopes from Michaels.

2. She bought mini clothes pins from Michael’s, tied bows around each one with red ribbon, filled each envelope with a Christmas activity and hung them on their smaller kitchen tree.

3. She came up with a list of activities that worked with her schedule. ( Mindy works 2 days a week. She is one of the lovely gals I get to work with at DFW Events🙂

She kindly gave me her list to share with you in a PDF file. Just click on  Advent Activities .

4. She purchased supplies in advance for any craft projects. ( Michael’s is another great source for this.)

So far, her daughter has thoroughly enjoyed each day’s special activity.

I think this is a wonderful way to teach children about the spirit of Christmas:)

Thanks for sharing Mindy!

Today I have one word for you. Gratitude.

It’s how I start and end my day.

I’ll be using these as place cards on my Thanksgiving table.

They’re made using my Dom Loves Mary font.

Just right click to download and print as many as you need.  Then cut on the trim marks.

There’s space to put a name underneath.

Don’t worry about your hand writing:)

I’m attaching mine to toothpicks with a glue gun and sticking in a pear that will go on the plate.

Especially on Thanksgiving, I hope you have good food to eat and good company to keep.

I hope you let your worries rest for a time and just enjoy being.

And I hope your heart is filled with thanks for the big and small things that surround you.

In addition to my husband Michael and my sister Ann who lives near me, my sister Diane will be here from Michigan!

My son Alex is home from school and though we’ll miss my son Nick, he assures me he’ll be gathering with friends in D.C.

And me? I’ll be spending the day smiling in gratitude:)

Happy Thanksgiving!

DIY Decorated Halloween Pumpkins


Halloween pumpkins, Decorated pumpkins, Pumpkins with calligraphy, calligraphy, hand lettering

Here’s my latest batch of decorated Halloween pumpkins!  If you remember the pic from a previous post showing personalized pumpkins, these were created for the same family.

It’s also the same client that I created the Halloween birthday invitations for using the mummy cookies in black  coffins.

Which is why I thought the spider web theme would work well.

Here’s the DIY Instructions and supplies: You’ll need regular acrylic paint for the background and gloss acrylic paint for the lettering, and gloss yellow green paint for the spider and bat eyes, a pencil, a few different sized brushes and transfer paper.

( If you want to create this style of lettering, you’ll need a 1/2″ flat brush.)

1. Copy and Save the image of the lettering style above and follow the arrows to create the strokes needed to make the letters.

If you are not comfortable trying to do the lettering yourself, you can trace the letters above. Or use a font to create the names in Microsoft Word.  Here’s a link to some free fonts that would work well: Ghoulish, Nightmare, Rocky would all be good choices.

(To download, click on the apple icon for a Mac and the Windows Icon for PC.  If you don’t know how to add a font to your PC- just Google the question.)

2. Once you’ve created the names either by tracing or printing from your computer, make sure they will easily fit on to the pumpkin of your choice.

3. Using a pencil, draw the background design around the are where the name will go. Make sure the name will fit inside the area. I used bats and spider webs for my backgrounds.

4. Using regular acrylic paint, fill in the background area  with a large brush.

5. Once the paint dries, tape the piece of paper with the name on it onto the pumpkin.  Using transfer paper, which can be purchased at any craft store, trace the letters onto the pumpkin.

6. Paint the letters with gloss acrylic paint using an appropriate size brush. Add spiders, webbing, and eyes as needed.

That’s it!

Enjoy this beautiful fall day!
