And then I got caught up with the holidays and I forgot to get in touch with Fozzy until I was reading through GTalk, back reading to be more specific, and I happened upon a recommendation for Work of Arch.
I sent an inquiry the 8th of January and got a response the following day. Archelle, the talent behind Work of Arch (and I am assuming hence the name), said she did not have any rates yet really since she is just starting out. So I shared with her the rates I have from other monogram creators from lowest to highest and much to my delight she pegged herself at the starting rate of Php 500.00 with unlimited revisions.

I explained what I wanted and asked how I can make a deposit to her. I was not able to log into my email for a day or two, I think. But when I opened it again I saw a message from her giving her PayPal account and my monogram! Wow, this person works fast! And true to her word, we did have a few revisions after I was able to clearly specify what I wanted. And voila! Here is my wedding monogram just the way I want it.
She even threw in a wax seal monogram for us since I mentioned I wanted to use this as well for our wedding envelopes!
I was really worried how our initials would look together without it appearing to be a movie advertisement of Mission Impossible.
But Archelle executed it nicely. I love it!
