oh, hello! sorry i’ve been a little quiet over here! the end of the year was crazy!! and have been spending the beginning of 2013 wrapping up a few projects and planning and organizing for the year ahead.

but wanted to pop in to wish every one a big huge super HAPPY new year! i hope your holidays were amazing and that your year is off to a great start!

i thought about doing a year-in-review post like i’ve done the last couple years, but instead i thought it’d be fun to focus on the NEW year and what’s next! it IS after all a shiny new year! :)

so what’s new? well, one of the big things i’m working on is planning for my return to the national stationery show in nyc in may! and i’m SO excited to go back!!! i took last year off from exhibiting but did a virtual booth to mix things up a bit and allow me to focus on a whole new line of paper goodness….appropriately called paper goodies! i’m so excited about it!!! it’s been a big project thats been in development since last spring/summer!! i cannot wait to launch it at NSS this year! eeeek!!

also in development, my brand new shop! where you’ll find allll the paper goodies and all sorts of other new stuff! including the line of wedding invitations i launched at nss in 2011!

and, another exciting announcement coming next week…just can’t share quite yet! so check back in sooooooon!!!

also, one of my goals for this year is to blog more, so i am super hoping i can stick to that and get my new blog design launched too. nothing like a new space to inspire new posts!!

in the meantime, if you’d like to be the first to hear about the shop launch, you can sign up for the shop announcement email and get a fun surprise deal after the launch!

i’m still here…but where did summer go!?

ack! it has been FORever since i have posted! i wish i could say i have been on some fabulous getaway chilling out after working my tail off on NSS and my new line, but no…the work continued…through the whole summer. while i am in serious need of a vacation, i am SO excited to say that i am DONE with the albums and they’re on their way to their cozy new homes in two shops in california, three in texas, one in louisville, one in wisconsin and another right around the corner in ann arbor, michigan…some stores got all four books, and others mixed and matched to build their perfect library! oh! and i can’t forget about the boxed invitations that hit stores in nantucket and virginia earlier this summer! SO excited!

my new site will be launching later in the fall too and i should have my shiny new images of everything very soon, so be on the look out for those along with a full-line catalog.

AND i’ve been working on another exciting project…i cannot wait to share all the fun details later this year!

for now, here are some behind the scenes pics of the final albums coming together…

so. there it is…a little peek into my summer (mostly) indoors…at least i had bright colors to look at…right?! :)

a little math + a preview!

Posted in invitations, wedding invites, wholesale tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:43 pm by meant to be sent

wedding season + a new collection + new branding + new site and blog + national stationery show = a super busy girl!

that is going to be me for at least the next four months while i get my new collection, branding and site launch ready, all before the national stationery show in may.

it. is. a. LOT. of. work. and definitely going to be tough…but, i am so so so excited that it makes it all a little easier. i cannot wait to finish it all and show you guys! so stay tuned for updates and sneak peeks along the way! i am going to attempt to log my progress pulling this all together on my personal blog.

so. my new collection. well, it will definitely include a wedding album (of course!) with lots of fun, fresh new designs in four mini collections with something for everyone! in addition to the wedding invitations, i am planning holiday, baby, everyday and accessories albums in the near future.

though i am still doing some planning + tweaking + editing + deciding…below is a little update / quick sneak peek at a couple of the ensembles i am working on, just to give you a little taste :) these designs are from just a little part of one of the mini collections…hope you like them…i would love to hear what you think!

my new albums including these designs and lots more will be available for wholesale purchase for retailers, and on my new site as well!

decadent peacock wrap labels

add these luxe labels to your invitations to dress up the envelopes too! these clever labels not only make the addresses pretty, but do double duty and wrap around to seal the envelope shut—no more icky licking to seal them! shown below in a gorgeous peacock blue with gold metallic label.

a new year…new stuff

Posted in invitations tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:07 am by meant to be sent

whew. it has been quite a year and it is definitely ending on a busy note! as this one comes to a close, i am super excited for the new year to begin….i have some exciting plans for the blog and main site! so stay tuned for new developments…

a sneak peek: i am planning on incorporating idea and inspiration boards into my blog and site. i just love them! and they are a great way to both inspire and capture ideas.

i sometimes do an idea board for my clients to illustrate a general design direction… here is an example of a very simple one i put together to give an overall feel for an invitation and show the materials to be used…some will be like this, while others will be more a collage of images gathered to capture ideas for a “look” or color scheme to inspire your invitation design…

{ TIP } if you are so inclined to gather your own images, this is also a great way to communicate what you are looking for and the type of event you are planning!

(the one below is more a way for me to quickly show a bride pieces of an invitation design for general direction)
