Invitations and Snow

I decided to use Tricia’s engagement (the new sister-in-law-to-be) as an excuse to buy some new colorful paper, a stamp and ribbon, to design some wedding invitations. They’re simple enough, nothing too fancy, and so much fun to make! I made some while I watched A Midsummer Night’s Dream last night. Maybe we’ll make one of these options for Tricia’s wedding, maybe not, either way it doesn’t matter, I just love working with paper!

It’s snowing again. When will this winter end?!

I was looking through Style Me Pretty, an amazing blog with great wedding ideas (my husband has to keep reminding me that I’m already married) and found this link to a really cool stationary store.

I’m addicted to stationary. It’s my dream to open up my own brick and mortar shop one day, filled with creative and unique paper, writing utensils, journals, etc. At one point I had even designed my own business card, drawn the floor plan and decided on a name. I just don’t think that my little home town of cowboys would be able to support a fancy store like I have in mind. It might be worth looking into one day though.

In the meantime I’ll stick to buying multiple journals and paper, just because I love the color.

I posted more boxes in the store this afternoon! Let me know what you think! Do you think larger ones would be more popular or handy?

Here’s a few that are on the way!

There’s something about paper that makes me want to create. I’m not sure exactly sure what it is in particular…I think it’s just everything about it. There are so many things you can make out of it, so many different patterns, colors, textures…When I was younger I used to hate writing in a new binder or leaflet for school. I hated the thought of ruining the paper. My husband thinks I’m such a nerd.

The thought of actually being into “correspondence” is so romantic! I love getting REAL letter in the mail. It’s so exciting and it makes you feel like the sender really cares about you…to put the time into writing and sending the letter.

Paper is seriously another one of my many (good!) addictions.

Here’s a few of my favorite stationary Etsy stores:
