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.

MFB: Creating a Brand through Found Objects

This week, along with about 314,345 other ideas floating around in my mind, I had the idea of creating a "brand" for the wedding. Basically, this would be a little emblem or decal for use all over our wedding "products" -- Save the Dates, invites, website, thank yous, placecards, yada yada.

I was very inspired by the sweet "S" of a Snapple bottle I found in the recycling bin.


My new last name will start with "S," and the font has the charm I am looking for, without being overly showy or saccharine.


I think a few of these bottles, spraypainted turquoise or white, placed next to the aqua Bell mason jars I have been collecting like mad, will make for a very sweet display.


What do you think? Did you create a repeating "brand" or theme for your wedding in any way?

And, if you have any Snapple bottles to spare, I'd be happy to take them off of your hands!
