it’s that time again

For some lettering love!

On October 18 and 19, we’re going to be at 10A Alabama! I’ll be exhibiting some artwork and handpainting custom cookies, and we’re also going to have some pastries and hot chocolate. All proceeds from the exhibit will go to Heart School, a school for underprivileged children that utilizes art and music as their tools for learning. There will be activities and lots of lovely things, so mark off your calendars and  come by!

We’ll also be selling some typography-themed craft kits, and there will be craft supply vendors at the event, so you can grab the perfect Christmas presents and buy your supplies as well! You should. Totally. Come.

xoxo.Elle

Type Kita

Last weekend, I was one of the lucky artists invited to have a piece on display at Type Kita 2! All the pieces were for sale, and part of the proceeds went to help Heart School. There were so many lovely pieces, I wanted to scoop them all up in my arms and run for home.

This was my piece.

Then we had a custom cookie corner, where I painted some messages on sugar cookies:

We sold a new kit we have, an embroidery ornament kit. These are so quick to stitch up, and so pretty in person!

Here’s Ina stitching up her zines. We gave out free granola bars wrapped up in custom wrappers, and her little recipe zines with another free granola bar sold out completely.

Our little Positivity Banners sold out as well.

We had Lemon Choco Chip Cake (hands down my favorite cake).

We shared a stall with our good friend Hannah, who sold her own custom Signetura items and made all our little price tags and impromptu calling cards.

The cookie painting was non-stop and went on for hours, so long that I didn’t catch any vendors at all! I’m gonna have to buy my nibs some other time.

We had a few other new kits, that we’ll show on the blog in the coming weeks. They’d make great holiday gifts for some little crafters in your life.


Thanks for having us, Type Kita! We’re already looking forward to the next one.

Type Kita

A few weeks ago, I was invited to be a contributing artist for an event called Type Kita, a typography art show in which all the pieces were to be sold and the money donated to victims of Typhoon Yolanda. Sadly, schoolwork was intense that week and so I wasn’t able to make a piece, but we did set up a little booth at the event, held at 10A Alabama in Quezon City, and sold cookies that I hand-lettered on the spot.

Chalkboard art inspired:

Letter cookies! Always my favorites.

Our cute booth backdrop!
