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: Inspiration -- IKEAhackers.net

Greetings everyone! And, a hearty congratulations to Shannon, who recently had her first baby! What a cute patoot!

I have a few wedding DIY projects in the cooker right now, but none quite so ready to be unveiled to the world wide web. So, for this installment of MFB, I wanted to share a site that has long been inspiring me, IKEA Hackers.

The site is an aggregator for all the creative, inspiring, DIY or DIT (do-it-together) projects that the readers submit. Some of them are a bit wack-a-doodle, but some are truly inspiring. One of my all-time favorites is Spring Chick's craft room.


Wanting a craft room to suit her needs and tastes, she and her husband customized a work table by securing four IKEA base kitchen cabinets together and topping it off with an attractive MDF table top. She then added some legs to make it pretty.


She used the same technique to make a matching desk.



Et, voila! C'est une tres magnifique craft room!

Head over to IKEA Hackers to get some inspiration yourself! The archives are stupendous.
