My friend was so touched by the Blessed piece that he couldn't speak for 20 minutes! He's already hanging it in a place of honor in his house.
Your creative eye is 20/20...the artistic layout combining the calligraphy, photography, and matting was perfect.
Thank you so much." --
"Just a note to let you know that when I showed Lisa's gift to her mother, she cried because she thought it was so perfect and so beautiful. I thought you would like to know that. Lisa hasn't seen it yet and I will report back when she does. I just KNOW she'll be bowled over by it. I can never pay you what the work deserves, but please know that I do recognize that you put your heart, your soul, and much time into it.
I am now envisioning other calligraphy gifts I may give to others. It is such a special way of giving. I'm so glad I found you!
Thanks so much." --
"Catherine, The package arrived safely on Wednesday! We are so pleased with your work..... it is stunning!!! My husband and I are thrilled that it turned out so exquisite! My in-laws are going to love it and this piece will be a family heirloom, no doubt! Thank you so much for your great communication and professionalism. I couldn't be happier with the turnout. I think my husband wants to personally write you a letter as well!" --
"Catherine - Wanted to say thanks again for the two Verizon plaques. They were BEAUTIFUL and both clients really liked them. I had them delivered to their guest rooms. You are so talented! Many thanks." Paul Smith -- President of Hakins Meetings and Incentives
"Dear Catherine, A special thank you for making such a beautiful piece! It came out so beautiful and I was very happy with the calligraphy and the framing. My daughter loved it and was very surprised. Thank you, thank you!"
-- Pam Schaneen
"Your masterpiece is just stunning with the frame and the matting we chose. Gia loves it and is so impressed with the quality of your work. I am going to get a picture light for it so the text stands out and it can be read easily whether it's day or night. It is hanging in my office and I'll be surrounding it with some choice photos of Rose to complete the collage. Jeanne Kerwin, our dear friend, can't wait to see it and will be bringing a box of tissues as she already knows she will start crying as she rereads it. Again, thank you for a super job helping me memorialize my beautiful wife. Know that I will use you for referrals. "
"Thank you, it was so nice to meet you. She loved it! She kept looking at it again on the ride home…Frenchtown is such a nice town…I enjoy visiting towns that still have small, family-owned stores…. I'm so glad I came across your website, everything worked out so well and we both enjoyed our anniversary. I will definitely keep you in mind for future projects! Again, thank you so much for all of the effort, time, and care that you put into getting this project done!" -- AJ Herring
"Thank you so much for a wonderful job expertly done! I love it, and so does Tony! As I said to you this afternoon, “It’s perfect!” Please stop by anytime with family or anyone. I’d love to see you again. Thanks a million! I am so pleased with your work and I hope you enjoyed working on our house!" --
“We were especially fortunate to have been introduced to Catherine before our wedding. Throughout the entire time of working with Catherine, I was amazed by how detail-orientated and organized she is, which helped keep me right on track. She is extremely talented and is undoubtedly the best calligrapher I have ever come across. So much so that since our wedding, many have asked us who did our calligraphy. She is an absolute delight to work with and undeniably brings a new meaning to calligraphy.” -- Ashlee Binder
"WOW! I love it! It's truly everything I had envisioned it to be. I will be very proud to present this print to some very special and generous family members.
Thank you." -- Dave Gwidt
"As a colleague, I knew Catherine as one of the most gifted and dynamic English teachers that I had ever encountered. Later on when I asked her to create a meaningful presentation gift for our beloved pastor who was retiring, I discovered that she was also a gifted and talented artist as well. Catherine created a beautiful gift that truly represented and honored the thirty-one year friendship that our family shared with him. We are so grateful to Catherine for this wonderful piece of artwork!" -- Adele Lewis
"My husband loves your "Music" print and so does my daughter! It really is beautifully done and the quotation has even inspired my husband to get out his guitar again after several years." -- Bonnie Jennings
"When we first saw the ketubah Catherine made for us, we were practically speechless. Based on a short conversation about the design we wanted, she created a work of art we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Signing it was one of the highlights of our wedding day. It's incredible -- she's amazingly talented. We love it and smile every time we look at it!"
-- Debbie & Greg
"Catherine did the most amazing work with our envelopes. She found a color that matched our invitations perfectly -- and the style she used gave us the flourish we wanted without the formality we didn't. When I went to work after the invitations had been sent out, a friend of mine told me it was the most beautiful calligraphy she'd ever seen." -- Greg
"I arrived home from work tonight to find that the place cards had safely arrived….so nicely packaged too! They are so BEAUTIFUL!!!! You did an amazing job! As soon as I opened them I had to look at every one. The indigo watercolor is fantastic!! It perfectly matches the monogram. I am so glad that you recommended it.
I am truly very impressed with your talent. I only wish that I had procured your services earlier for the wedding. I do have several girlfriends all getting married within the next year and half or so I will be sure to recommend you to them
Thank you again for all of your help! It has been a pleasure working with you!"
-- Michelle Horn
"Anyone, such as myself, who has the good fortune to find you will be amazed by your talents. I have always considered calligraphy, especially with your unique blend of inks, to be one of the finer things in life. It has turned a simple gift of bookplates for a young one (or one young at heart) into a treasured gift. From the invitations to the place cards and table markers, your calligraphy helped make Robyn's dream of a wedding come true. Needless to say it drew compliments (yes, written right on the response cards) from guests all over the country. It is truly the little touches that make the difference. Whenever I receive anything in the mail from you, even an invoice, it is like being treated to a mini-celebration in an envelope just for me! You are a pleasure to collaborate (never work) with!" -- Susan Fajen
"I just received the place cards...they are absolutely perfect and beautiful. Thank you very much!" -- Jennifer Weber
"After learning of Catherine's artistic calligraphy talents, my husband and I commissioned a wedding certificate to commemorate the wedding of our son and new daughter-in-law. The resulting piece is truly a personalized and unique work of art that will be cherished for years to come….I can’t say enough how delighted I am with the certificate. It’s truly a work of art." -- Nancy & Gus Kamnitsis
"Catherine, you OUTDID yourself with this plaque for Hannah! I mean, goodness me, I am overly and wonderfully speechless right now. I’ve propped up the frame where I can just STARE at it because, even hours after opening it, it STUNS me. I'm amazed at how precise this is…the attention to detail is astounding and this piece will hold a special place in every home we live in. It is above and beyond what I expected. “A HAND DID THIS?” is the first phrase I said after “OH MY GOODNESS!” -- Heather Wyatt
"My sister and her daughter so appreciated your beautiful hand done invitations, place cards and table cards for her wedding of 300 + guests. Your interest in understanding her style, venue and the ability to catch all the needed details to make it all perfect was your commitment to making the project beautiful and flawless!! Not to mention your graciousness and ability to meet the deadline on short notice!!! You are in the right business, to bless others with art and soul!!" -- Heidi Funke
"Leonardo da Vinci said, "Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art." The beautiful calligraphic print that Catherine created for a special friend of mine truly was created by a hand guided by the spirit." -- Kathy Keller
"Thank you so much for the calligraphy poem. My mom absolutely loved it."
