The Not-Perfect Poem

A few months ago, a talented photographer, Anna Wu, commissioned me to calligraph the most beautiful and empowering poem I’ve had the honor of reading and calligraphing for a dear friend of hers who actually wrote the poem. It’s a jaw-dropper. Take a look below for a full read of the poem! Thank you Anna for the instagram post! (:

Don’t worry, there are more photos to come of this lovely poem taken by Anna and I promise I’ll post those soon. For now, I hope you enjoy these teasers!

Wedding Wood Signs

In lieu of my prior post, I just listed these lovely hand-sawn, sanded, and stained wooden pieces (by my amazing boyfriend!) that I hand lettered and is now available on the etsy shop. Don’t be shy to stop by and say hi! These are perfect for any bride and groom, don’t you think? (:

If you’re getting married or know anyone who is and would like wedding signs, feel free to check in at Alley & Co and if you have any questions we’d love to dialogue with you.

Summer Wedding Love

Hi ya’ll!

I love weddings and I love the personal touches that reflect the vision or theme couples share.  It’s no secret that there are pinterest-worthy wedding trends. And this summer wedding was totally pinterest-esque! I am so honored that my friend, Sunny, from Maylilies (check her out! She makes beautiful jewelry!) asked me to hand letter several day-of wedding signs for her own special day. So, here are the photos I’ve been keeping to myself for months (:

Hello everyone!

Hi all! I’m Alley and here’s a couple things I want to share with you. I’m a teacher by day and calligrapher and owner of Alley & Co. by night and weekends.

My etsy shop will be featuring quotes/verses and other items that will debut in a few weeks so be on the look out for some goodies. Alley & Co. also offers wedding paper goods including envelope addressing, place cards, escort cards, wedding vows, quotes and signs. You’re more than welcome to contact me with any questions and ideas. I would love it if you can share with your friends and family!

To kickstart this blog launch, here’s a verse (available on my etsy) I brush lettered this morning to share with you why it’s important to me and hopefully it gives you a better idea of why I started this side business and maybe even encourage some of you. This verse helps me remember what is most important. Whatever I am at the moment (sister or girlfriend), whatever I’m doing (washing dishes, calligraphing or teaching sentence structure) and who I’m with (family or coworkers), I want to keep my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, my primary affection. To love him, obey him and walk in his ways, and to serve him is my purpose. Whatever I say or do, I want to glorify God. And my hope is that through Alley & Co. (however it may look like) He is glorified.

Much love,

Alley, Calligrapher and Owner of Alley & Co.
