Wow, it's been a while. A looongggg while, but things have been kind of rough over here at Jaded Studios. As I've very loosely mentioned on social media from time to time, I've had an immediate family member who bravely fought through a long term illness for several...
Special announcement—a brand new edition of hand lettered garden markers is coming to Jaded Studios very soon! 🎉
Wow oh wow, am I excited!!! I am hoping you can’t hear me squealing all the way over there (or can you?). 😊 But, there are simply so many squeals happening over here, as I have been sitting on this new release-to-be for a while.
If you recall, I hinted in my New Year’s post that verrrrrrry soon, I would be able to share more details about a new, modified edition of my bestselling plant labels—and today is that day!
Wine and cheese, cheese platters, cheese appetizers, cheese tasting—who doesn’t love cheese?
This month, we’re featuring our custom, hand lettered cheese labels!
Stress. It’s the universal teeth clenching, head pounding, sleep depriving pain in the everything that we all either experience at least once…or all the time.
After last week’s promising outlook for a brand new year, 2021 has proven itself to not necessarily be all glowing positives. Having been going through an awful lot on my end and falling off the ‘gram quite a bit because of it, I have been trying to do my best to balance life and stress, life and stress, life and stress… And then this week came around and sure did a number on many, wouldn’t you say?
I know the opinions on the events of this week may range in some folks, but for the majority, there is a lot of stress, disappointment, anger, sadness, and all sorts of other very hard emotions to deal with.
Because of this, I thought it would be nice to talk about one of my favorite stress relieving activities (alongside exercise, deep breathing, yoga, and various other self-care and health-conscious activities). For me, major stress relief comes from calligraphy and lettering.
Wow, was 2020 rough, huh? Well, I’m sure I’m not alone when I say good riddance, 2020! And even better, Happy 2021 to us! 🥳
I am hard pressed to find one person who can say 2020 was a great year (if this is you, please share this amazingness in the comments!)…and while 2021 still has some necessary roughness ahead, I’m sure we can all agree there are hopefully positive glimmers on the horizon.
Personally, I do have some rough patches ahead that I’ve been known to talk about from time to time on Instagram, and 2021 is sure to be a challenge with hard family stuff to bear. 😞 Still, I’m doing my best to focus on the positives, and to look forward to all that 2021 will bring.
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
Hello and happy Friday! It’s getting to be that holiday time of year…can you feel it?
I am a lover of the holidays, but not the holiday stress…as I’m sure you are too! 😊 Part of what I love about the holidays is a lot of the cheer that runs around, so I’ve been making a bunch of holiday gifts with that in mind for the people in my life, as well as a few custom ornament orders. I was even getting into full holiday mood with “Santa Baby” playing through my head…and then it hit me—I really should just share these custom holiday goodies as an option in the shop!
Oooh am I excited! It's officially deal time! I hope everyone had a safe, happy, and feast-filled Thanksgiving...and now that you're ready for some Black Friday shopping, I've got deals here at Jaded Studios, all weekend long! First, let's toast to your awesomeness...
It’s that time of year…the holidays are coming, the joy is high (though this year, there’s a lot of stress in the mix, too, eek!). But, it’s still a perfect and likely necessary time to pause and reflect on what we’re grateful for, don’t you think?
So, first and foremost, I want to say THANK YOU for being part of my journey. I am honored and delighted to get to make pretty things for wonderful people, whether it be for a gift you’re giving or a gift just for you. It makes me so darn happy to get to combine lettering and painting into something that will bring you a smile! 😊
That’s the main reason I decided to run a Black Friday Weekend sale this year
Hello again! After a short hiatus to visit family, I am so excited to be back—because oh nelly, have I got news for you!
Jaded Studios will be having a Black Friday sale, all Black Friday weekend!
