Squint or you’ll miss it! My beautiful calligraphy features on Love My Dress blog

… or not. This made me smile so much! I would love, one day, to be featured on the very wonderful Love My Dress wedding blog. And I so very nearly was… in fact I saw one of my paper rose wedding place names in one of Annabel’s photos from the Etsy UK wedding event right there on Love My Dress earlier this month. Let’s start with my own photo to show you a clear view of the item in question… this was taken in my calligraphy studio:

Paper rose wedding place name

This is my best selling wedding calligraphy item – the paper rose place name card in pink

In April I was invited by the Etsy UK Weddings team to send in these cards for their big launch event in Mayfair. I made up a pack of 10 sample cards and wrote the names of some of my favourite wedding bloggers on the cards. (Yes, there was an ‘Annabel’ there!) So I know those cards were on display somewhere at the Etsy Weddings event in London.

I spotted one of them on Annabel’s blog post ‘Images from the first ever Etsy UK Weddings Event‘ and it made me smile. No one other than me has any chance of recognising it’s mine, of course. Or of spotting that the calligraphy is handwritten. Or that there’s calligraphy on it. Or card. Or a rose. But I know it’s there. I’m on Love My Dress!

Can you see it? No? I’ve put a little ring around the twine and the edge of the rose so you can tell my place name card is there! I should also credit for the gorgeous cake topper which was the intended focal point of this image!

I must work on something a little bigger for the next event!
