Invitations & Calligraphy of 2022

As we embark on this new year, I wanted to take a moment to look back on 2022 and highlight some of my favourite invitation suites and calligraphy projects from the year.

Since this blog is a new journey, I wanted to take a moment to tell you a bit about myself. My name is Jillian, Owner & Designer here at Jaye Designs. When I am not designing invitations, I am a mama to two precious littles, and wife to my amazingly supportive husband (who is also a business owner).

Stationery and Calligraphy was something that I poured my heart into any chance I could. At the start, I spent my time mainly between being a full-time designer in product development in fashion, and being a new mom. After my daughter was born, I left my full-time job to stay at home with my daughter, and run Jaye Designs. I worked away for a couple of years, trying to find my place in the world of invitations and calligraphy. Not long after, I had my son, right as covid hit Ontario. This seemed to be the perfect time to take a break, be at home with my family, and re-group where I wanted to see this business go.

2022 was a special year for me. With covid restrictions lifting, my daughter was back at school, and my son was able to go to daycare. This meant I could finally focus on my third baby, Jaye Designs. With larger events coming back to the world, the wedding industry boomed! 2022 was jam packed with some amazing work that I am so ready to share with you!
