Lauren of Lauren Heim Studio reached out to me a few months ago and asked if I would be interested in an art print for my followers, to which the answer was a quick "HECK YES"!
Scroll towards the bottom of the post for two free art prints and my practical guide to meal planning!
For a bit of background: I found Lauren while browsing through hand lettering on Instagram a few years ago. I immediately fell in love with her polished and flowy lettering style. I sent her an email along the lines of "Can you do some lettering for my wedding that's two years from now? I'm just really excited to see it already." and she knocked it out of the ballpark with some custom lettering for us!
I think this ended up being the only custom thing I had done (other than getting my dress fitted), so her letters are extra special when I look back at wedding photos.
Then, I moved to Kansas City for grad school and saw Lauren post about a pop-up stand at my favorite adorable shopping center, so this happened...
It makes me happy x 10000 that we're the same height. This doesn't happen much for me. ;)
And then last February I was looking for some self care/a quick escape from school so I went to one of Lauren's workshops!
Let's just review this photo, shall we? Cute place setting: check. Galentine's Day decorations? Check. Generous slice of cake from Dolce Bakery? Check and check, because I had two.
Anyway, Lauren is the sweetest human being ever with a heart of gold and insane lettering talent. She also loves on her customers well with free prints, like this one...
This one makes me tear up a bit every time I see it in my home.
So when she reached out about this collaboration print and wanted ideas, I pretty much said "Tacos or bust"! and she came back with the prettiest prints! I created a digital guide to practical meal planning to pair with (and obviously, we both recommend meal planning some tacos for yourself! ;)) You can find the FREE downloads below:

MORE ABOUT LAUREN
Hello! I'm Lauren, hand lettering artist and owner behind Lauren Heim Studio. I'm often found teaching brush lettering workshops, designing custom work for clients, creating pieces for my online shop, or brainstorming business ideas with my husband. My husband, Andrew, and I are both are entrepreneurs (Amy and I both have husbands named Andrew!). Andrew is very much business oriented, as a business coach for entrepreneurs, and I'm the other spectrum as a creative. We both work from our home with our Wheaten Terrier pup, Bear. We have a really unique lifestyle that we're really grateful for! Yes, we work a lot sometimes. But we're also so passionate about our work, and we love doing life and work together (most days!). My favorite things include walks on the trails at our local park, visiting local bakeries, organizing and re-organizing, Netflix-ing, tea drinking and baking.
I had the privilege of working with Amy on a lettering project for her wedding, and then was so honored that she attended one of my workshops. I can't say enough wonderful things about this girl! I love how Amy brings knowledge, humor and positivity to everything she does. As a woman who struggles with gut health and female issues, I'm constantly trying to improve my health through what I eat but also not restrict myself from the good stuff. Amy's take on nutrition is such a breath of fresh air that we, as women especially, need in this day and age. I love being inspired by her blog, recipes, and words!
