Hey! I’m Ellora…
As a calligrapher, a dreamer, and a doer, I believe in constant learning and personal growth. I love to plan a good party just to see others enjoying life and the company of others.
I am a mother to a little girl with big dreams. I share a home and life with my creative little girl, the man of my dreams, his beautiful daughter, and our two tad-bit hyperactive cattle dogs. If you have ever met a blue or red-heeler, then you know what I mean. Oh, and just an update… we now have three dogs! Sometimes life throws a curve-ball but I believe you’re never given more than you can handle… with a little help from the good Lord.
When I’m not working… who am I kidding!? I am always busy working on something, whether it’s lettering, designing, or building out the next DIY project, there’s never a dull moment around here.
What makes Creatively Southern unique?
If it’s made from wood, it’s hand made by us. If it has words on it, it was written by me. But what makes Creatively Southern unique is that every piece we create is different. We believe everything we offer and create should be unique as the person we create it for. I guess you could say that everything we create is a “one of a kind”!
For more information on what we offer, see our Services page.
If it’s custom work you need, connect with us and we are honored to make something meaningful for you. If it’s hand-lettering you need for a an event, a gift, or even your business, I would love to work with you!
Britt is my creative assistant, builder, #1 encourager, supporter, and my rock. We work as a team to bring you inspiration to transform your home and life through creativity and life experiences. We share a love for life and a few good ol’ Southern traditions.
And this little girl has been my inspiration from the very beginning….
I started Creatively Southern in 2012 after my daughter’s first birthday. In the beginning, it was a place for me to share my adventures of life as a mother and all of my DIY projects. Over the next few years life got more than busy and priorities changed. The long and short of it… I took a blogging break. I struggled to restart and find my inspiration. I was sitting with my daughter at the kitchen table teaching her how to write. While talking with her, it finally happened.
I found what I love to do… “write pretty!” as my daughter would say.
We love to create and I have always loved to write cursive. From bubble and block letters to learning to write cursive at five years old, it’s always been what helps slow me down. With a family and two (nope, now three!) dogs, we are always on the go. Sometimes we just need to get back to our roots and take things at a slower pace. My lettering does that for me. It’s cheaper than therapy!
We believe family is the most important thing and summers are just made for chasing lightening bugs and enjoying ice cream on the porch barefoot. We are here to share our creativity and our journey with you. And if even just one person finds inspiration from all of this, then we have already accomplished more than we ever thought possible!
Please make yourself at home and thank you for visiting us! We can’t wait to hear from you!
