Our Story

Hello there, you lovely human!  Welcome to ALittleAfterNine!  ALittleAfterNine was born in Medina, Ohio at a beautiful store called The Dress.  In 2016 I took a class with my mom and began dabbling in modern calligraphy.  This fun night out together has turned into an amazing small business adventure and I have loved every moment of this journey.  Now based in the Cleveland suburbs, ALittleAfterNine specializes in combining hand written elements and water color to create beautiful, one of a kind pieces.  I love for putting ink on paper.  I love helping brides bring their wedding day vision to life and I love creating one of a kind pieces for homes across the country.  Letters are my passion and I love working with people!

Hi there!

I'm Katie, the human behind the creative goodness at ALittleAfterNine and I am just so happy you've found your way here. I don't want to bore you with a whole lotta chatter here so instead I'll give you my most favorite fast facts about this little life I lead.

I am a full time Kindergarten and First Grade teacher and I LOVE the tiny humans I get to spend my days with.

I stumbled into lettering in 2016when I took a "Cocktails and Calligraphy" class and then took on hand lettering all of my wedding invitations and envelopes and I haven't looked back since!

I am easily distracted by rosé wines and Harry Potter marathons.

I am married to a cute little husband and together we love exploring Cleveland's food and beverage scene. We are the proud fur parents of Dixie the Dog and two little cats, Elizabeth Bennet and Klause von Kittenstein.

I can't wait to chat with you and get to know you and help you create something beautiful!
