time to start thinking about your galentine's party decorations! this streamer garland i made for last years valentines calligraphy workshop was so easy and made such a fun statement! all it takes is about $5 for supplies (i used 3 plastic table cloths and yarn i had laying around) as well as a long queue of podcasts + some patience. 📷 and beautiful space: @loveofcharacter
galentine's envelopes are complete but we'll see how long it takes me to write love letters to my friends. these envelopes are so fun + so easy! i have a tutorial video with the same technique ~20 posts back (like you want to search 20 posts back.....), i promise your friends will be so excited to get these in the mail 💌
happy birthday to all those december birthdays out there! if someone combines your gifts i hope it's a bada gift. and if you get separate gifts i hope they use birthday wrapping paper. merry birthmas to all!
got my christmas cards sent out just in the nick of time (as per usual). loose script is my go-to when i'm in a rush and i'm loving the brush lettering + eclectic envelopes this year compared to white-on-black of last year. a lot of you have been asking about the vintage stamps. for the second year i got them from red beans n rice on @etsy. i love how they're all different and come prepackaged in the exact amount for each envelope.

finally start that feeling that summer's coming to an end, but i wanted to share this adorable bachelorette party decor i made a few weeks ago. can't take any credit for the idea--it was all a great client's idea! love, love, love writing on non-paper items so if y'all have any questions just let me know!
after working so hard to letter your envelopes, adding vintage postage stamps is that next step in really jazzing up your envelopes! i fell in love with vintage stamps at the national postal museum while talking to a 70+ year stamp collector. the dc museum is totally worth a visit if you love snail mail as much as i do! nowadays i source them mainly from @etsy. what's your favorite vintage stamp?
school supply shopping is no joke. tag your favorite pto mom or dad!
aaaaaaand just like that school is back in session! not that i can compete with adorable children but.....if you want to learn how to letter like this i have my faux calligraphy manual available for instant download on etsy for just 5 bucks. we all start somewhere! photo by @sallycavanaughfilmsandphotos aka the only instagram account that actually makes me want to have kids.
what does lindeman carte mean? first of all, have you ever tried naming a business? it's flipping hard! you want to make it personal and unique but also broad enough for the expansion of a brand. breaking it down, they represent both sides of my family. lindeman is a family surname that's mostly going extinct in my generation. the other side of my family has strong italian roots so carte is italian for 'cards'---at least that's what a 2 am google translate search said. who knows for sure?! this kansas accents says carte different every time so i'll let you off the hook if you're unsure of how to say it too 😉
we're on the downward slope of summer! by now you've surely had time to get drunk at someone else's lake house. and if not, you've still got time!
