I have been remiss. I just realized that I haven’t featured any of my Blogger theme projects yet, which is a shame, because there have been so many pretty ones and so many amazing clients. Stella, the lovely lady who owns the blog From Stilettos to Ballet Flats, is a lawyer who started her blog to chronicle her transition from a single career woman to a wife and mom. Her blog is very personal, and she wanted to keep it that way. I actually designed her blog a couple of years ago, but as she and her blog evolved, she also wanted a fresh new look.

Her preference for thin, handwritten fonts led me to use Strange Love Text, which is a really nice font for headers, and I paired it with Jacques and Gilles, another one of my favourite calligraphy fonts.
And here is how it all came together on her blog:
