Thank you for all of the love and support this little corner of the internet has received over the past several years. As friends and family members were getting married, their weddings fueled the inspiration for this blog. But as seasons of life change, my focus, along with those nearest and dearest, shifted away from the wedding planning stage and I began to neglect this blog.

I have decided to indefinitely retire Calligraphy by Shannon in an effort to pour my attention into my lifestyle blog The Scribble Pad where I will be merging past and future inspiration boards and parties. You will still be able to place orders for calligraphy, custom invitations, and hand stamped items through my etsy shop. And as always, you can stay in touch with me under my moniker, The Scribble Pad on my blog, etsy shop, facebook, and even twitter! I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you.

Nautical Wedding Invitations

I am working with a bride on creating a nautical invitation suite. I will do the design calligraphy and then we hope to have it letterpressed. We are very excited, but the wedding is a long way out so we are only in the brainstorming phase. I love the ocean. I love the color blue (can't you tell) so this has been a blast.

Here are some of the designs I found that have been inspiring me so far:

Photo Credits, clockwise from top: Square invitation from eInvite.com, Navy blue Vera Wang invitation from finestationery.com, Sand castle invitation from Exclusively Weddings, and finally my own creation which was inspired by several invitations on Wedding Paper Divas.

But amidst all this fun, I have yet to see exactly what I am looking for to meet this bride's needs, which is why I will be creating something of my own. In my searches, I did find some additional nautical eye candy on Flickr. Brass Paperclip has wonderful ideas in her photo stream that I am currently loving!

I hope you enjoy browsing through this as much as I have! Oh, and if you have any additional "nautical" ideas, send them my way! The rain in DC has dampened my creativity...
