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.

Baby Shower Favors

As promised, here are adorable baby shower favors that are as easy as pie, edible baby pacifiers!

First, the supplies:

Ring shaped mints (I used life savors)
Jelly beans or other similarly shaped candies (I used Mike'n Ikes)
White frosting
Candy Bags (available at arts and craft stores)
Wax Paper (for easy clean up!)

Use the frosting to bind the colored candies to the first ring. Complete the top of all "mini pacies" and let sit for at least an hour then use frosting to attach the bottom rings like so:

Again, let sit for at least an hour. Then insert in candy bags and finish with a bow!

Here is the final display, along with a note to guests in sweet calligraphy:

Wedding Stamps

I am impressed with the postal service. They took the wedding season into consideration and released the new wedding stamps almost immediately after the rate increase! Here are the new stamps!

Baby Shower Invitations

Nursery Rhyme Theme

So this is not really wedding oriented...but you know what they say:

First comes love,
Then comes marriage,
Then comes a baby in a baby carriage!

I recently was asked to help plan a baby shower, fron the invite design to the calligraphy and finally the favors. Here is what I came up with:

(Please excuse the grey boxes, they were requested to protect privacy.)

The couple did not know if they were having a girl or a boy, and the party was being thrown by the soon to be paternal grandparents. We wanted to stick to neutral colors, so we picked turquoise and yellow. The invites turned out better than I could have imagined, and I was able to match the calligraphy ink color almost perfectly.

(The paper we used was iridescent, so it was hard to capture the image!)

Added bonus: Party Favors! (Coming soon...)
