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

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.

Type kita:

Chalkboard art inspired:

Letter cookies! Always my favorites.

Our cute booth backdrop!

Krispy Kreme and your holiday parties

Remember one of our first ever blog posts? Here’s a delicious way to fancy up your Krispy Kreme boxes for your parties!


Cut two-inch circles from your Krispy Kreme box. Punch holes on sides of each circle cutout, and string with ribbon, yarn, or crochet thread.
Instant decoration for your holiday table!

There’s no need to transfer your doughnuts to another serving plate. Serve them straight up in these prettied-up Krispy Kreme boxes!

This serving style can be done with both the dozen and half-dozen box.

Cut off the sides of the top cover.

Using a cutter, cut around the top and sides of the logo. Don’t cut below the bottom part of the logo.

Fold in the bottom portion of the box cover, just below the logo. You may glue or use double-sided tape to keep the flap in place.


Cut off cover. Trim the cover to fit inside the box.

Cut open the four corners of the box.

Round off the corners for a pretty look.

Punch holes in the upper corners.

Thread your favorite holiday ribbon through the holes. Here we used white velvet ribbon.

Line your tray box with a cellophane sheet.
