Welcome to the second feature in our Orlando Moms Make series! One of the greatest things about our city is that we mamas LOVE to encourage one another! A fantastic way to do so is to support our local “mom-preneurs.” Shopping local is such a powerful way to have a direct impact on our City Beautiful. (And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love shopping?!) So in an effort to make these two important tasks easier for you, the Orlando Moms Make series will highlight a fantastic group of moms in the area who have taken their craftiness and artistic flairs, and created successful businesses for themselves.
Introducing Betsy Storey from Heavens To Betsy Calligraphy
This Florida native is a fabulous lady who has a heart for the home, and shares her love for it through her artistic lettering skills. Loved getting to chat with her and hear all about her life and business!
> Tell me a little about yourself and what inspired you to open up your shop.
I am the Betsy behind Heavens to Betsy Calligraphy. I married my high school sweetheart and am momma to my daughter, Sadie, who will be 2 this fall. I’ve always loved lettering and learned the art of calligraphy about 3 years ago via Melissa Esplin’s “I Still Love Calligraphy” online course. Yep, I learned calligraphy online – nuts, I know! As I learned and practiced, I was looking for a way to share what I was doing and loved the idea of creating address stamps. I’m a homebody and I love creating a home with my people and having a pretty return address stamp is part of that for me.
