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!
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!
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!

Is there anything better than an armful of colorful blooms? I don’t think so, especially when they are lovingly handmade and last forever. So when I got together with Adi of Ballyknock Photo, I brought a bunch of bouquets along with the crowns from my last post.
This monochromatic arrangement was actually a commission for a wedding show and was shipped out the day after it was photographed. Since the blooms were all whites and creams, I wanted to create interest with a variety of flower types and textures, especially in the foliage by incorporating paper evergreens, succulents and branches berries in with my hand-dyed leaves.
When I was home this fall, I splurged on a super fancy Italian crepe paper in a gorgeous merlot color. It looks so beautiful with reds, fuchsias, purples… pretty much everything. I love this bouquet! I wanted to try a few shots with my scooter, and they turned out even better than I imagined! My model thought I was crazy, but I just love these funky boots with her beautiful lace tea-length gown.
While I love color, I really enjoyed putting together this more traditional bridal bouquet of whites and pinks. Shop all flowers here!
Just in time for Halloween, I finally get to share a Brothers Grimm inspired styled shoot featuring my gorgeous Burgundy and Blush Watercolor Floral invitation suite.
Coordinated and photographed by the enormously talented sara smile photography, this shoot absolutely exceeded my expectations and imbues a magical quality into every thing and person involved.
Here are the rest of the amazing vendors:
