I'm Caitlin, a modern calligrapher, stationery designer and map illustrator. I'm a Southern girl with a happy heart and I'm known to always look at the bright side of things. I'm a new mama to Wesley, a wife to my handsome hubby, Ben, and a dog mom to our adopted speckled dog, Captain. I live in Apex, NC – just outside of Raleigh – and I love calling North Carolina home.
Home is my happy place. Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies are my weakness. My husband and I traveled to Hawaii for our first wedding anniversary and we dream about going back on a daily basis (Kauai, WE LOVE YOU). My best friends are my group of girlfriends that I have known since elementary school. I strive to live a fulfilling life of positivity, happiness, love and adventure.
My design style is modern, colorful, whimsical and illustrative. I want to help you document your happiest moments and adventures in life, whether that's designing your wedding invitations or creating an illustrated map from your favorite Hawaiian vacation. It's my job to provide you with a unique and custom keepsake that you will cherish for years to come!
HAPPY TINES MISSION
I believe that your happiest moments in life are filled with love and adventure, and I find passion in helping you tell your favorite stories through authentic, hand-crafted custom designs. I hope that my designs inspire you to love big and travel often.
WHAT DOES THE NAME MEAN?
Happy: a very accurate word to describe my personality :)
Tines: two sharp points that come together at the tip of a nib, the tool used for writing calligraphy.
Put them together and voila!
