Jane's Profile Picture

About Me - Jane Dolan

     For as long as I can remember, I have loved things handmade and personal, traditional and classic. Graduating from the University of Delaware with a B.S. in Apparel Design, my interest has always been in design and the one-of-a-kind. The art of calligraphy fuels my passion with the perfect combination of detail and design. I love the way it encourages me to be intentional, slow down, sit down and enjoy!

      Raised in the north, I currently reside in South Alabama, along Mobile Bay, with my wonderful husband and four children. Together we find great joy in celebrations, and pleasure in the special times that mark all of our lives.
      I would love to hear your story and help set the tone for your special event, making it handmade and personal!
