It's surreal to see my designs next to some of my favorite brands.


Thank you for the feature, Girls' Life! ❤️

Stickers are such a fun way to spruce up your planner or notebooks for the school year 😊 You can shop the See the World sticker and Explore the Globe sticker on my Etsy shop

3 Things I'll Be Sharing in My Blog, Adventures in Travel & Calligraphy

Adventures in Travel and Calligraphy with Gladje Designs by Jody Butts

Hello! I'm Jody, calligrapher and traveler of Glädje Designs. 

I share my passions by creating joyful art that inspires adventure and evokes travel memories.

My brand was born in 2015 (you can read my story here). I design art prints, buttons & stickers for my shop, collaborate with travel brands & bloggers and do custom calligraphy projects.

I am excited to begin a new journey for my brand—this blog, Adventures in Travel & Calligraphy! Here are three things that you can expect to see me sharing through it:

Go For It Travel Calligraphy Jody Butts

1. Travel stories & tips

Traveling is one of my biggest passions. I can't wait to share with you my experiences and suggestions for the amazing places that I have been. You can count on tips for planning, saving money, and efficiently spending your time while traveling. I'll work my way up to it, but someday I may share how I planned and visited Venice, Verona, Milan, and the Cinque Terre in Italy all in one day. I gain so much inspiration through travel and will talk about how it fuels me creatively.

2. Calligraphy & design process

As a calligrapher and designer, I love learning from artists I admire. It is fascinating to peek into their process and be surprised by how they work. I will be sharing my favorite tools, design process and stories of my finished products in hopes that you will learn something new to try yourself.

3. Inspiration for adventure & creativity

My true dream for Glädje Designs is to inspire adventure, however that may look in your life. I want to empower you to travel confidently and create freely in ways that bring you immense joy. I'll share my daydreams with you through things that inspire me such as articles, images, quotes, videos and more. 

I hope you'll come with me on this adventure! I'd love to hear your thoughts and questions, so please comment below or contact me.
