tara jones caligraphy

maybe you noticed my new header? the hand lettering is by the amazing Tara Jones. I contacted her a few days ago with a request for the lettering in my header. doesn’t it look amazing? she sent a few options, which I had a really tough time deciding between because her work is really great, but ultimately I went with the one above. combined with my fireflies trapped in glass jars, I think it captures romance and wonder. check out her adorable website for more samples of her work. thank you again, Tara!

a little glimpse

two headers I’ve just completed for these two lovely ladies:
Jen of Toujours Complexe loves all things French and fashionable. her blog is filled with bright colors and always makes me smile.
Michelle of Lovely Little Things wanted something to show her love for her home town, Seattle. she writes about her findings in the city and her fabulous discoveries.

as I mentioned before, I’m available to design a new header for your blog for $25 with three styles to pick from. all you need to do is contact me at alyson.jg {at} and let me know a little bit about what you are looking for, and I’ll take it from there!


custom designs

a week ago, Sara, of the lovely blog Miss Jane, contacted me to ask if I designed custom blog headers. she was looking for something to jazz up her site while inspiring the Seattlite in her and came to me for help. we set up a quick, easy transaction from my shop, and I began work on her headers. for $25 I provided Sara with 3 initial styles to pick from, based on her ideas and suggestions. she had picked out a color scheme that I worked with to create a simple, catchy header for her site.

after a few minor color adjustments, here is the final three I sent her.
can you guess which one she went with?
so now, I’d like to extend an offer to any of you, interested in a little blog pick me up or custom design: I’m available for hire. I’m easy to work with and can give you great, custom work for an affordable price. I’ll hammer out the details over the next few days, but if you’ve got any questions, comments, etc., you are more than welcome to send me an email – alyson {dot} jg {at} gmail {dot} com.
