I've just delivered my last wedding stationery order for the 2016 wedding season and need a moment catch my breath.
It's been a long, hectic, unpredictable year, both in the studio & at home. I have SO much to share and update you on, which I promise to do so very soon. So much has happened and so much will be happening over the next few months.

But for now, I'll leave you with some pretty invitations to gaze upon.
Annie & Kevin tied the knot at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in downtown Indianapolis this past weekend. They had one of the loveliest, most elegant wedding styles we've seen in quite some time. How can you go wrong with the ever-popular Navy and Gold color combo?
For their pocketfold invitations, they opted to incorporate gorgeous gold foil elements, letterpress printing, and unique laser cut shapes. These invitations are absolutely perfection, in our book! They perfectly set the tone for their big day - I can't wait to share more details of their coordinating wedding day paperie with you!
Much Love,

We stopped by the new house today to take some measurements & drop off a few more light fixtures for installation.
Every time we stop in there (lately it's been almost every other day), there's always something new & exciting in place. ere's what's been going on most recently...

...The carpet is finished in the bedrooms + basement (the last of the flooring)....and our pretty front door handle has been installed (I spy a little boy who is SO excited for more space to run & play)....
...The plumbing is *almost* complete (the kitchen island + basement bar have custom countertops pending)...
....the doors are painted & installed....the perimeter kitchen countertops are in place (this quartz is called "Viatera Minuet", and  photos just don't do it justice!)....
...and our tiny little oasis (a.k.a. the Master Bath) is nearing completion...only the mirrors, vanity lights, and glass shower surround are left on the "to do" list.
...and some of our most anticipated items - our custom reclaimed barnwood items - will be going in over the next week or so. Hoosier Reclaimed Timber is handling those & they do the most amazing work. I can't WAIT to see the finished pieces, once they're in place!
My goodness, is it possible we could be in by Easter?! EEEK! =)

So much has happened since I posted our last house update in December. Honestly, work really started to slow down around the holidays (understandably), but quickly picked back up in January.
We have all of our recessed lighting installed. The mudroom bench & custom fireplace are completed. Doors and trim are painted and installed. The banister around the basement entry (minus the wrought iron spokes) is installed & stained to coordinate with our wood flooring (to be installed later this month).
And the BIG excitement this week - our cabinets are FINALLY here and being installed as we speak! (Three weeks later than originally estimated. It's a sore subject. It was NOT our builder's fault, and I'll leave it at that.)
On my "to do" list this next week:
I still need to select all of my cabinet hardware, buy a handful of these for the hallways & basement,
order a number plate for the front porch (and maybe a "vintage" mailbox),
and drop off our light fixtures + bulbs for installation!
I promise to post more photos next week - by then, we should have some flooring, all kitchen & basement cabinets installed, and maybe even some of our pretty light fixtures hung! Things are really rockin' & rollin' now, and we're on track to be in within 6-8 weeks. The countdown has begun. =)
I’m a country girl, small business owner, wife, mother of three, and a proud alumna of Purdue University (Boiler Up!).
Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
