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: Knock-Off Wood

This post is dedicated to one of my very favorite websites on the internet for its amazing designs, practicality, and frugality: Knock-Off Wood by Ana White. When I visited, it was love at first click.

Ana's website is one place I first received inspiration to start this MFB series -- so I owe her a big thanks! Her FREE furniture and design plans tell you how to make the stylish pieces you see at Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel and tons of other high falutin' places for pennies on the dollar.

My dream would be to have this huge farmhouse table from Restoration Hardware. (Though in my future "dining room," this would mean there would be more table than room).


However, like Ana, I don't have $3000 for a dining room table laying around.

Instead, when I have a few hours of downtime (whenever that may be!), I plan to have the Engineer (my future hubby) help me put one like Ana made together. Honestly, I think hers looks better anyway! Plus, she gives you a step by step plan on how to make it yourself. And, did I mention that it cost her $9.98 + scrap lumber?!?!


Since this is an ambitious project, in the short term, I may just have to "settle" for these darling magnetic boards.


Check out http://ana-white.com/ to find tons of inspiration for your next project. You'll be happy you did! Let us know what you plan to make!
