I'm Elise and I'm a much bigger fan of Oreos than I am of "About Me" sections. (Kidding. Kind of.) I've had a passion for blogging and design for nearly 15 years now - this site is my dream come true, bringing all of my favorite things together.

I’ve been designing since the early days of Kelly Clarkson’s music career when I’d spend hours entering “Make a Kelly Desktop Background” competitions on American Idol message boards. Since then, I’ve spent time refining my design style through a variety of courses in college and working at a local marketing firm.

I’ve loved hand-lettering even longer than I’ve loved Kelly’s music. A few years ago, I learned that what I called “doodling” is actually a very refined art. Since then, I’ve studied a variety of new techniques including watercolor and brush lettering.

After years of working in graphic design, I’ve found a love for custom designs for blogs, wedding announcements, and home decor. If you're interested in a custom project or a collaboration, please email me at
