I'm Amber. An Artist, a teacher and a lover of words who is enthusiastic about connecting and getting creative with others.


I want to know what special words resonate with you.  What words will help you meet your goals, spark your passions, or make you laugh? I developed WORDaffect as a way to combine several of my passions and to help both myself and others achieve their goals. I love gathering people and teaching creative skills as well as using my skills to make meaningful sign art, jewelry, and gifts for you and yours. 


I love words. I think they are powerful and important and used wisely can bring about real, lasting change. Since 2012 I have been hand painting pretty, inspiring, and practical signs. [You can learn more about that at I Do Signs.]  Up until WORDaffect was born, my words went mostly on chalkboards, barn wood, walls, and glass, but now I am excited to be offering them in a wearable version too: WORDwear.  I would absolutely love to make something custom for you.  Shop for meaningful jewelry and gift items here: WORDshop or commission custom sign art HERE.


Secondly, I love to be creative.  I have a degree in Fine Art and have always loved making useful, practical, and pretty things. One of the things I have been making since 2012 is hand-stamped vintage silverware. [You can pop over to TYPOGRAPHIE to see more about that.] I'd love to make you something custom for you to use in your home or to gift. 


Lastly, I also have a degree in Education and I have been teaching fun chalk lettering workshops since 2015 in the West Michigan area.  I have taught Chalk School 95 times to date and have had over 1,200 students!  I love gathering people and getting creative and productive together.  [You can learn more about that here Chalk School.]  And now I am offering metal stamping on jewelry, gifts or vintage silverware as a workshop as well.  You can attend a Public Event or gather your friends and family to host a Private WORDsocial.

So as you can see WORDaffect really does combine my passions.  I can't wait to make you something special with the words you are passionate about on it--or teach you how to make them!
