Monday’s, I have to say that unlike my former corporate life I truly look forward to them now. I also love being able to share these Bestowals with you, truth be told, I did have another one scheduled and I still hope to add it here later today. Michelle and I have been working behind the scenes on a little pet project and I was hoping to have it ready to launch this a.m., but I am so behind. Let me tell you growing a human takes marathon worthy endurance; to all those that have gone before me you made it look way too easy. Sheesh, if waif Kate Moss could do it, it should be a breeze for me, right? I get winded standing up, Kate just looks like a waif she obviously is part Hercules. For those of you that carried multiples?! You should have been awarded the equivalent of a purple heart in the delivery room, I will never look at Octomom the same way. She may be coo coo but what she was able to achieve? Not even going to wrap my weary brain around it.
So back to the bestowal! I brought back the ‘handmade’ stamp as I have had so many requests for it that it seemed like the right thing to do. I have been getting requests for hand-lettered sentiments which I have been doing for select clients and thought I should start adding to the shop, they will be limited edition as my lettering evolves I want to update them accordingly. I haven’t added them to the shop yet I need to photograph the samples, but I can tell you that they turned out so good, they stamp beautifully! I am a serious stickler about my stamps leaving a beautiful impression and it can be very tricky when you are working with such thin lines. I am giving away two of the new stamps of your choice, just answer the following question by Sunday, September 8, 2013:
What is you favorite day of the week and why?
I will announce the winner the following Monday! And the winner of the Cantoni font giveaway is Suzanna, congrats!
P.S. I also added a new monogram style, I created this one for one of the ladies at Grey Likes Nesting and I loved the way it turned out. I love me some monograms so for this week only use coupon code MONO50 to get 50% off your own custom monogram until September 9th.
P.P.S. There’s still room to join in the lettering fun this Saturday in L.A. and get to meet the very round me, I will be in the a.m. class (the afternoon class has sold out!)
