Behind the scenes

Welcome to a peek behind the scenes of a small business, with me actually dancing when you connect, like or purchase my design.

I’m crazy excited about pens and calligraphy, and wrapping words and quotes in calligraphic art and design, making printable pieces for home decoration or a gift for a special someone, is my great passion.

Calligraphy and me

When I was 13, calligraphy and I hooked up and we have been together ever since.

Through time I have had the opportunity of writing for private and company customers throughout the world.

Name and date, handwritten on 978 invitations over a weekend makes an impression though and in 2021 my hand and I agreed to leave commissioned work and concentrate on printables.

Printables – why?

A printable is a digital file (PDF) you purchase, download and print limitlessly for your personal use.

For fast and easy access, most of my designs are printables, saving time, costs and carbon footprint by skipping shipping.

Due to terms, files are yours only, but by all means, turn the print into a great gift – throw it into a frame and nobody will ever know if you fixed it five minutes before party time.

Originals

As nothing beats the smell of ink and the sound and feeling of the pen playing on paper, an original piece now and then sneaks up on me – if you follow me on Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook, you will be the first to know when a new piece is released.

Want to give cursive handwriting and calligraphy a go?

I enjoy writing by hand so much, and would love for you to feel the thrill.

Making it easy for you to get started, I’ve made the printable guide ‘Cursive Writing and Calligraphy Practice’.

I’ll take you all the way from cursive handwriting to calligraphy, teach you how to turn monoline letters into faux calligraphy and finally introduce you to the art of flourishing.

Besides my very best penmanship tips you get lots of practice sheets to print as many times as you like. All you need to get started – besides the guide – is paper, a pencil and a brush pen if you want to go all the way.

… speaking of pens…

Stationery supplies

I am a sucker for pens – well not just pens, stationery all together.

I am eager to try out any new pen possible – sensing the materials and weight, the balance, the run, the flow, the edges and color of the line.
If you’d like a look into my drawers of favorite pens, pencils, sharpener and eraser, please visit ‘Stationery supplies‘.

A special thanks

There would be no business without the help of my family – my husband Christian, my daughter Ingrid and my son Frederik. They take part in practicalities, but first and foremost they encourage and inspire me every single day for which I am very grateful.
