• Elephant Baby Shower

    As we are preparing for baby boy #2, I can’t help thinking about my beautiful elephant themed baby shower for Luka 3 years ago.

    Fun fact: Luka didn’t officially have a name until 12 hours after he was born! We couldn’t agree (err…decide).

    My brunch themed shower, complete with mimosas, was held at the Historic Stone House Inn in Farmington, Pennsylvania. It featured a delicious dessert bar and plenty of rustic, chic charm. We had so much cake leftover, that I actually saved the top of the cake to use for Luka’s first birthday smash cake! I am forever grateful for the talents of my friends and family and the beautiful work they did to pull off a shower better than I thought was possible.

  • Luka + Hallie the Hedgehog

    A few weeks ago, Luka and I met up with the amazing Callie Lindsey to take some super cute photos of Luka and #HallieTheHedgie playing in their Honest Company diapers. The Honest Company issued a limited edition print with hedgehogs and I couldn’t resist a photo opportunity. Here’s some photos of our “babies” on their playdate!

  • We’re Having a Boy!


    My husband Bob and I are so excited to be welcoming our first baby, a little boy, in August! We’ve been frantically getting the house ready and finishing remodeling jobs in preparation for this little guy.

    I’ve officially capped my quota for wedding invitations for the rest of 2015! (Don’t worry brides, if we’ve been in contact recently, your wedding invitations are already on my calendar!) I am so fortunate and blessed to have 26 brides this year – my best year to date! I already have 12 full orders out the door, with just 14 left to go! Each design has been very fun to create, and I’ve definitely had the opportunity to challenge myself as a designer and go out of my comfort zone. I’ve learned a lot and I can’t wait to learn even more!

    I’m still taking a limited amount of party and shower invitation orders this year, but trying to not plan too much after August because I’m preparing for a son who might just be as challenging as his daddy! 🙂

    Thanks for supporting my little printing business and choosing me as your stationery designer!
