Lindeman Carte Valentine's Lettering Workshop

Teaming up with Rachel (girl boss who owns Lindeman Carte) is always a favorite because she doesn't just put on a workshop, she makes it a full experience. From the place cards to the place mats to the food, everything has that extra touch. I tried my best to capture all the little details! Helped that the lighting in the store was perfect yesterday.

Let's start with the place settings. Rachel always has a vision of some sort and galentine's was on her mind! For the place mats, she hand drew dalmatian spots - you read that correctly, hand drew, on 12 place mats. They turned out fabulous! Next up and equally over the top amazing, her place cards. She and her father cut small acrylic place cards. She then painted them, so the white names she wrote out would pop. She always makes the place cards a fun keepsake for the attendees! Her workbook was snazzed up this time with a holographic foil finish on the cover, clipped with a heart paper clip for the holiday. For the additional practice pieces, she made some love notes for the attendees to use and gave them a great chalkboard. She definitely makes her workshops worth the cost! In addition to all of the great paper products, she also feeds everyone with delicious food and drinks...

To show attendees where they can use their newly learned writing skills, she incorporated her handwriting into many aspects of the food setup. Wine bottles were dressed up with handwritten wine types instead of typical labels. On the cheese tray, she used chalk to list the cheese types. She also incorporated the acrylic by writing out the menu and tips for the cheese boards. For dessert, she ordered some delicious mini cupcakes from September Moon Cupcakery here in Wichita. Cara attended her workshop back in December and it was fun seeing them work together!

One of the best features to her setup? The festive garland she hung across the top of our event space! This crazy creative girl, took plastic table clothes and cut them into strips. She then tied them on string that we measured to go across from my loft to my shelves. Turned out so colorful and gorgeous! This girl, she is ambitious and crazy and it is so fun! The heart background was leftover from the other Valentine events I had hosted this weekend and it coordinated great with the event.

Feel like you missed out on a fun event? Don't worry, we have some open spots left on Thursday evening that we are trying to fill! You will have the best time and learn some very useful handwriting skills. Plus, sips and treats always make an event worthwhile! Grab some friends and reserve your spots here.

Thank you Rachel for putting on another fabulous workshop at my shop!

Lots of Love,
