It’s finally the big day—the one I’ve been waiting for all year. Today is the day I get to share my first wedding of 2017!
Allison and John got married today in a romantic ceremony in a beautiful church in downtown Madison, followed by an elegant and fun reception at a very cool converted warehouse space just outside the city.
I’ve been working with Allison on details for her big day for almost a year now—you may remember her gorgeous floral save the dates from last fall. Being the dream client that she is, she wanted all her paper goods to coordinate perfectly, so I carried the romantic watercolor florals and classic-yet-casual calligraphy throughout the suite and added a truly special touch with a custom liner.
A few months before the big day, one of Allison’s bridesmaids got in touch to ask if I would design coordinating tote bags for the bachelorette party—which I happily did! Such a thoughtful way for all the girls to remember a great day!
I just love the map of local food sources on the back of their mouthwatering menu!
As a parting gift, the couple offered seed packets to their guests featuring a stamped illustration I designed.
As you can see, Allison went above and beyond to make her day special from start to finish—and most importantly, at the end of the day, she got to go home with her best friend, who is now her husband. Here’s wishing you two all the luck in the world and a love that continues to grow. Thanks for making me a small part of your big day!
I’m super excited to announce that Seattleites can find my paper flowers in not one but two local shops! Lucca Great Finds, a gorgeous shop in the Ballard neighborhood, picked a beautiful selection of delicate pastel Icelandic Poppies and foliage to complete the bouquet. Pick up one of their beautiful vessels and you’ve got a great gift or perfect addition to your own home!
Farther south, you’ll find the uber trendy Paper Hammer. They picked up a veritable garden of paper flowers: multicolor zinnias, anemones, roses, poppies and more. Definitely worth the few few blocks’ walk from Pike Place Market!
I’ve been on a cleaning and organizing kick lately. I’ve got one little corner of my studio to go and then my entire work space will be de-cluttered, de-stashed and all the dust bunnies and tiny spiders will be chased out of their homes.
Since printing up the new collection, my in-stock inventory is overflowing a bit, which really works out for you guys, because I’m having a spring cleaning sale! Through the end of May, all card orders of three or more get one additional card free! Choose the card you’d like by including a note to seller at check out, or I’ll just double up on one of the designs you’ve already chosen. Happy shopping!
If you follow 622 press on Instagram or Facebook (which you definitely should), you’ve seen my new collection being posted for the last week or so! It all started with a desire to rework my classic “you are my sunshine” card, and I liked it so much I based a whole collection around it. Featuring brush lettering and hand-drawn bikes, sunbursts and birthday candles, this collection is bright, joyful and of-the-moment. Shop cards here!

Where did April go? Oh right, to Las Vegas, Utah, Kansas City and New Orleans. I’ve been traveling for most of the last month, and let me tell you, it’s good to be home. I’m finally catching up on my to do list, which of course includes sending out Card Club collections! April was an extra special delivery of a set of limited edition, hand-painted letterpress prints. I always get the itch to freshen up my space in the spring, and new art is a great way to do that!
We were back to cards for May, and these are some of my faves in a bright spring palette! Like what you see? Subscribe here—and don’t forget a subscription makes a great gift for Mother’s Day or any other holiday!
