we are filling up our calendar with interesting events for 2014 (and hopefully not just in LA). so far, we have done florals, calligraphy, DIY, and blogshop. they have been selling out rather quickly, so i wanted to start a mailing list that i could notify people with before the events are announced on the blog & social media. and if you have a workshop in mind that you’re dying to take, leave us a comment below and we’ll try to make it happen.


we have used MailChimp for years to send out all of our blogshop updates to students & alumni, so i wanted to get one going for designlovefest too. if you don’t know about MailChimp you should definitely check them out for your business or blog. great custom designs and stats that you can track on how many people are reading your eblasts. and if you have less than 2,000 people on your list, it’s free. seriously, i’m a big MailChimp fan for my businesses.

we’d love to keep you in the loop with the things we have going on around here. fill this out if you have a second…

sign up for the designlovefest mailing list!

    ANYTHING (especially calligraphy and blogshop) in Atlanta, Chattanooga, Charlotte, Nashville, Greenville SC, or Asheville!

    I would love to see another blogshop online – or just more online classes in general. In the perfect world we could split you up in to millions of pieces and send you all over the world to give us a hit of fresh style and creativity but since as of now in the year 2014 that is impossible, it would be wonderful to have more online courses / webcast content.

    p.s. Kudos on the new mailing list. I’m so happy we’ll have the chance to know what’s coming so we don’t miss out – great idea.

    Ashley says:

    I so wanted to take the at home BlogShop and somehow missed the recent email for last chances.
    If there is a way I could still sign up for this at home class…I’d be willing to pay the full price and forego the discount price….
    I know class is good only till end of December.
    Had to ask in case there is a possibility.
    But certainly understand if it’s not.
    Thanks for considering my request,
    Alison Duncan
