Featured designer on LCI Paper

I was contacted last week by LCI Paper for an interview about my business. Perhaps not all of you click through to my main site and read my bio. If you want to learn more about me and how I got started--and where I wanna go, check out this great article that they posted. Pete even managed to make an appearance...imagine that!

LCI is based on the east coast in Massachusetts. They are a great source for paper, envelopes and pocketfolds--anything you might need to build your invitations. If you see something there that you'd like to use for your stationery, let me know and we can make it happen!

Beyond paper, LCI also has party favors, and DIY supplies for those of you who feel like getting crafty. I know I do!

Thanks so much to Kristen over at LCI--it was a great experience!

DIY Pinwheels!

I'm trying to do as many things as I can for our wedding to make it more personal and to add that creative touch. So far, I've sewn red/white gingham napkins for the reception and am hand-cutting place cards (we're almost done!). I've made a few fabric flowers, but I'm not sure what I'll do with those--if I get enough, I might make a garland for our Whoopie Pie table. Hand crafting all these details is not only fun, but it is pretty friendly on the budget as well!

After we exchange vows and officially become "The Snowballs" ( read that right!), we want our guests to have a way to celebrate and wish us luck other than throwing rice or blowing bubbles. Because I have a passion for paper, I thought that we could give each guest a pinwheel! Turns out, they're pretty easy to make, which is good because I need to do quite a few. I can't wait to see how they look in the wonderful photos that Kimberly Potterf will be taking.

Here is a finished one. I printed the same pattern from our envelope liner on one side of the paper:

The pinwheel is secured into place on a pencil with a thumbtack. I plan on making ours with Tiffany blue pencils, perhaps customized with something fun. Here's the view from the back:

March desktop calendar is ready to download!

March is here! You know what that means, daylight savings time. I'm a huge fan of it being light out longer--and so is Pete. It means an additional hour of ball playing in the yard (after he's done helping me get proofs out of course!)

March's calendar design is derived from my invitation set called, "Tres Chic." I designed this invitation set for Alison and Ben, who I had the pleasure of working with while I lived in Ohio.

You may buy a sample of this invitation here.
