Meetup will take place at Revel Creative in Kirkland, WA on January 29th, 2014, from 9:30-11:30AM. Find more details, and reserve your ticket here.

DIY Essential Oils Packaging

This week, one of my lovely co-workers, Sondra, and I tag-teamed on a DIY gift for one of our other co-workers, who will be retiring at the end of this month. Sondra created these two amazing essential oils at home (I'll have to get the recipe from her later), while I put together the packaging.

The labels were inspired by this post from Bri of Designlovefest. The rest, was, well... inspired by the holidays, of course! The tinsel tree branch and gold glitter ornament were both from Hobby Lobby, while the cello bag was from Michael's, and the calligraphy was done with a Zebra G nib + Sumi Ink, on mixed media paper.

After many tries, I finally learned how to scan my calligraphy. I decided to incorporate the end result into this week's featured wallpaper. To download it, simply save the image above. Enjoy!

I'm excited to announce two things:

1. The launch of my freelance business, The Fancy Cat Studio! It's been in the making for a while now... I just now finally got the guts to make it official.

2. My first calligraphy class happening in January 2015! The class will include basic lowercase calligraphy instruction, time for practicing and asking questions, and of course, snacks and mingling!  If you'll be in the Seattle area, come on by. I'd love to meet you!
