Feature Friday: Love Lettering

Happy Feature Friday!
It’s officially wedding season, so there’s no better time for today’s feature with Doris Wai of Love Lettering. She creates the most beautiful hand lettered signs not only for weddings, but loves to create pieces for any special moment in someone’s life! Her work can be seen in just about any type of event — from brightening up a birthday party, to adding a personalized touch to an invitation, menu, or name card! We love how innovative she is, going outside the traditional pen and paper and instead taking her lettering to all kinds of formats such as mirrors, signs, photo props and even furniture! She also takes this innovation into creating new products and utilizing new techniques, and we can’t wait to see the fun, hand lettered items she’ll come up with next! Keep on scrolling to see more of what Doris creates and to learn all about what it’s like to run Love Lettering.

: Tell us a little bit about yourself!

: Hi! My name is Doris Wai and I am a happily married hand letterer and a mom to a wonderful little girl named Melody. I graduated in illustration design from the OCAD University in Toronto but what I realized was that I loved drawing most was letters and type. This passion of mine led me to starting my own business catering to clients in the wedding and event industry, catalogues and print, logo design and currently writing a book about what and how I create my pieces.

: How did you discover your love for lettering and that you wanted to pursue it and create Love Lettering?

: My interest in lettering began when I discovered bubble letters in grade school through a lettering book, if you draw any word in this style, it instantly becomes more adorable! And that is the magic that I see when I look at fonts and typefaces, each one has a different character, gives off a different mood and I find it so fascinating!

Feature Friday: LoveClayFlowers

Happy Feature Friday!

We are amazed by today’s feature as Olga Mironova creates the most unique and beautiful bouquets for her shop, LoveClayFlowers. As the name suggests, these bouquets, boutonnieres, and other wedding accessories are made completely of clay! We have never seen clay flower arrangements before and are completely mesmerized with them. We love how realistic her creations are and really enjoyed hearing about how much pride Olga has in making her products. She truly works to make her bouquets the best they can be for that special wedding day and is always perfecting her craft. Read on to see the crazy amazing things Olga can do with clay, and hear about how LoveClayFlowers got to where it is today.

:Β Tell us a few things about yourself!

:Β I live in Russia and I’m 33. πŸ™‚ I’m married and have a daughter Sonya – she’s 7. Β I used to work in a bank, but then decided to start my floristic career and I love my life now!

: Your clay bouquets and accessories are so beautiful! What made you decide you wanted to create these products?

: Thank you! I’ve always been a creative soul. Since my childhood I used to make flowers from beads, from silk, etc. Some years ago I saw clay bouquets and was stunned! They looked so delicate and realistic. Even more surprisingly, they were very lightweight and not fragile! I really wanted to learn how to make them and I found a school where I learned how to make clay flowers, and now I create clay bouquets! πŸ™‚ That is what I love and I’m glad I can express myself through my work and bring more beauty into this world.
