Sorry for being MIA, so much traveling this spring, and a death in the family added another trip home earlier in March. In better news, I am elated as I’ve just returned from teaching my first paper flower class!
A friend of mine from high school is the special events coordinator at the Milwaukee Art Museum and she reached out a few months ago to see if I would be interested in teaching a workshop during their Art in Bloom event. The workshop sold out! So over the last few weeks, I pulled together all my supplies and made hundreds of flower kits and then met 34 lovely ladies in Milwaukee on a rainy Saturday morning.
The class went really well (although I think I’ll limit future workshops to 25 people)—everyone had a lovely time and left with a poppy and anemone and supplies for a few more. I left exhausted and thrilled—turns out I love to teach! I’ll be offering classes in Wisconsin and other cities I’ll be traveling to throughout the year, but if you’re a shop owner or just someone who wants to get a handful of friends together and host a party yourself, get in touch!
As you may have noticed, I’m blogging less these days. A whole lot of life has been happening lately—some good, some bad—and I’ve decided to stop feeling guilty and simply write when I can.
Freelance work and owning your own business is unpredictable both in schedule and income and I’m so happy with how the first few months of the year have gone! (Feel free to help me keep it up—lots of new goodies are in my store at the moment!)
But one of my favorite constants is pulling together collections for my monthly Card Club deliveries. I had a few new subscribers this month, so I wanted to send out a variety of goodies perfect for spring. Birds and bees, butterflies and flowers were on the agenda this month! Like what you see? Join the club!
Just before the holidays, Erin got in touch about business cards for her new business. She thought hand-painted watercolor cards would add the perfect touch of creativity and I couldn’t agree more!
I love that each card is unique while referencing an abstract orange and red pattern that is part of the company’s branding. Want your own set of cards? Check out your options here.
I’m sure you all have been holding your breath since I first wrote about my Boho Watercolor Floral Wedding Invitations, so inhale deeply, because this shoot will take your breath away. Based on the inspiration, I wasn’t quite sure how this shoot was all going to come together, but I am just so impressed with Alex Perry‘s coordinating and every last one of Morgan Anderson‘s photographs.
Apparently, so is The Perfect Palette, who featured the shoot in November. This was my first time on the popular wedding and event blog, so I was very excited! Check out some of my favorite images and all the vendors below, and order invites in my shop!

February’s Card Club delivery brought the love! A Valentine for your special someone, two for your BFFs and of course a few congratulations cards for spring babies and weddings!
I’m planning something big for March, so subscribe today!
Well friends, it’s that time of year. Love is in the air and I’m busy working on a bunch of amazing projects I won’t be able to reveal until the summer and fall. So it seems like the perfect time to start sharing some of the amazing styled shoots I had the privilege to be included in last year!
First up is a collaboration with a photographer you’ll be seeing a lot this year: Amanda Duke. Amanda and I connected through The Rising Tide Society when she was looking for invitations for a romantic spring shoot, and we’ve now worked together on two additional shoots. People often lament we’re losing true connections in the digital age, but for me, groups like RTS have allowed me to grow my business from abroad in ways that would never have been possible before.
Anyway, I won’t keep you waiting any longer to see these amazing shots! And make sure to scroll all the way to the end to see the other fabulous vendors who made this shoot sing!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! You guys already know I have a bunch of awesome heartfelt cards in the shop, and that a bouquet of paper flowers would make an even better gift than real ones on the big day, so the only thing left to remind you about is to order before the end of January in order to receive them on time! Happy shopping!
