Good vibes only ✌🏻 Happy summer everyone! Woke up early to play with all the gorgeoussss goods we bought last night during our class at @jolouisebeauty
(makeup is a calligrapher write off, right?!😜) Thanks to Johanna for hosting our Nashua debut and for creating this new happy place 😍🙌🏻 loved seeing our girl @mollygracemakes
in action 🔥🔥she’s now officially off and running! Such a fun night with a creative crew!
Love this collab with @slimesbymaddiemoo
! I did the line drawing in pencil last night and she colored them in with her #copicmarkers
. Second picture is the logo she commissioned me to design. Maddie is a young entrepreneur who started her own slime business! She taught a few of us grownups how to make slime last night and we had a blast! Check out her feed and her online shop for more slimy goodness! 🙌🏼🌸
Afternoons in the studio—really feeling my workflow for today.
for catching me in this moment.)
I was planning on sending out a newsletter today, but I am actually going to push it back to Friday. I’m not quite finished with my bonus tutorial and I want to make sure the ‘we’re all HUMAN’ pattern info makes it in.
SO, if you haven’t yet, it’s not too late to sign up for my mailing list and get the full scoop!
Since I’m planning on tackling some items on our wedding to-do list tonight, here’s one of our engagement pics just for fun!! 💕📷 by @anny.photography
We believe every dog enjoys being wild and free at heart, and this was the inspiration behind our new Fetch&Follow collars - We love this image of @being.maxwell

These words have been YEARS in the making! It’s official - Rose Carrie is full time and I am beyond thrilled. Over the years (starting casually in 2008, taking new shape in 2011, and now becoming something I'm so proud of) I’ve always done “my own thing” around other work, on nights and weekends, offering web design and development services, copywriting, life, business, and brand clarity coaching… my love for my crafts and my clients has spanned cities, life events, and day jobs. I am so happy to announce that all of this hard work and all of these things I've loved doing over the years has come together (FINALLY) in a way that allows me to fully pursue these passions. I am eager and excited to see what each new day brings on this journey (that is quite familiar to me at this point, haha). Again, this has been a long time coming - so much that my family got me a cake to celebrate, haha! Thanks again to those of you who have been with me over the years, those that have joined over time, and those of you that are brand new here :) Let's do this!
Wondering if we’re the only creatives who have a hard time fitting in time to actually create!? The other day @canvasandkale
sent us a snap of her doodles on a rhodia pad and we were like 😭😭 couldn’t remember the last time we sat down with our pens “just for the fun of it” and not for a specific project on the to-do list or client! So here’s some desk aftermath of some much needed practice time ✍🏻 would love to know if ya’ll set aside creative time or just squeeze it in when the mood strikes!?
Packing some stickers up in my new plastic-free bags ♻️also made some cute wedding gift tags, but i can’t show you a pic yet💌
But in all serious that focus look, that’s how hard I feel like my brain is running 24/7 lately. One of the main reasons I love the concept of small businesses is the cycle of maintenance and growth.
I love that for a season, I can spend time on something like an Ironman and just keep my business the way it is, focusing solely on my clients and customer care. Being content with where I’m at and focusing on myself gives the entrepreneur side of my brain space to think big, and new.
Then come these other exciting seasons where I get to dream up about 20 things I could do better, build from scratch, evolve old ideas into refreshed new ones. It’s exciting, it’s a lot of screen time, trips to Home Depot, chats with my mom and max, hearing my thoughts spoken out loud.
Storytelling will always be my favorite part of the job, but this “give and take” cycle, really grateful for it. 📷 @heathershanephoto #laurenscottionedayla
Who else feels like they’re just winging it 99% of the time!? I was worried about something the other day and this was Julie’s text back to me 😂 but it couldn’t be more true! We’ve come a long way since starting this business by accident but still if anyone could see our daily google searches 😳🧐 we didn’t go to business school or even make a formal business plan yet here we are! 👯♀️ Anyone else doing something now completely opposite of what they went to school for?! Cheers to starting those side hustles 👏🏻🎉 #googleU
Anyone else feel like their summer is already getting booked up with plans?! 🙋🏻♀️Love all the fun that comes with the summer months but also already wishing it would slow down!! ☀️ If you want to come take a little break with us join @canvasandkale
multiple Friday nights this summer! Only 2 tickets left for next week’s 6:30 session and a new class time added for 8:15 👯♀️ live music, fun drinks, food trucks and calligraphy under the lights! 🙌🏻 @poppingupnext
Bee Studio Solutions encompasses all the photography, digital marketing, social media, consulting, studio assistance, archiving, inventory etc etc work I’ve been doing over the last year. —
I’m excited to launch this new project, not just to grow my own small creative business, but to further highlight the amazing artists, makers and creators that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. —
Website is on its way. In the meantime, I wanted to launch the Instagram because I have always been the type of person that wants to hand over a present as soon as I buy it and not wait for the day.
Let the journey begin! Logo design by Paige Carrington (www.Paigepagepagina.com) •

day around here (seriously think we have more selfies of us two with rosé than we do with our husbands in our camera rolls 🧐) so cheers to the BEST rosé sangria from @poyntnewburyport
🤤 and come sip it with us June 25th!! 🙌🏻
There are a lot of new faces around here so I thought I would introduce myself on this #fridayintroductions
My name is Megan and I am the calligrapher and watercolor artist behind Gracewell Design Co. ⭐️ I started practicing calligraphy when I was in college in 2016 and I quickly fell in love! ✍🏼
I am equal parts creative and logical, being very type A personality wise but also left brained creative. I am a sonographer (ultrasound tech) by trade and needed a creative outlet to challenge myself and grow. 👩🏼⚕️
I am married to my wonderful husband Ethan and we live in Oklahoma City with our cats (yes we are cat people) 👫🐱
I believe so very much in empowering others through words and actions of encouragement, to see what they will accomplish! I would not have taken the leap to start a business if it were not for all of the people who pushed and encouraged me to do it. So as long as you hang around here, I will always cheer you on! 👏🏼
P.S. if you’re still reading, comment something that you want to do but have always been afraid to try, big or small! 🌿
Our summer line up is looking fab 😎 snuck some more events on our calendar yesterday that we’ll be announcing in the coming days! Happy Friday everyone! 🎉

It bears repeating that inspiration can come from anywhere. So, if you’re feeling stuck creatively, go for a walk. Look at signs, billboards, fashion, graffiti, sit in a park and people watch for an hour. Then come home and get to work. 😍
