This summer has been so beautiful, we’ve definitely been spending more time outside than in. But I’m happy to be back here to finally share some new custom wedding invitations. This willow branch suite turned out so lovely–head here for more details and photos!

For a little recap of The National Stationery Show, I wanted to share a few pics of the booth (and the Javits at sunset). It was a blast and I’m excited about some lovely new shops that will be carrying my calendars–more details on that soon! And you can also look out for more on the 2015 calendar, which debuted at the show, when it’s available in the shop.

Preparing for the show and traveling down to NYC for the first time with baby Felix was quite an experience and I’m so thankful for the help of my husband and parents. I couldn’t have done it without them. And of course a big thanks to Kelly (May Day Studio)–so glad we were in it together!

back with some big news!

There is lots to celebrate these days. Felix is 3 months old today (crazy, right?!?) and in a few short weeks, we’ll be heading down to NYC to debut at The National Stationery Show! I am thrilled to be sharing a booth with Kelly (May Day Studio), my friend and fellow Montpelier stationer. It has been a busy few months of preparation and a quick lesson in how to balance work and being a new mom (!) but I feel so lucky to have this opportunity–it’s going to be awesome!

With that said, if you’re a retailer, blogger or visitor to this year’s show, please add our booth to your list–we would love to see you!

Our sweet baby boy Felix arrived on Friday, January 24th! I can’t believe he’s already three weeks old today. We are overwhelmed with love and joy for our new little family.

We’re heading to southern Vermont for some fun time with the family. I imagine there will be quite a bit of relaxing too, as I’m 35 weeks pregnant now (eeek!).

Already looking forward to sharing all the big and exciting happenings in 2014! Until then, warmest wishes to you and yours and many thanks for your continued support!

(Fred shot this beautiful pic after last week’s snowstorm…always grateful for our sweet little view.)

I discovered Winter Water Factory years ago while studying textile/pattern design at FIT and have since been inspired by their playful, modern prints. With our little one arriving in a few short months, I couldn’t resist rounding up some of my new faves from their fall collection.

And good news for my pals in Belgium! They’ve expanded to Europe so you can now buy directly from their shop in Germany.

I know it’s been quiet around here lately, but I have very big and very happy news to share — we are expecting a baby boy! We’re thrilled, excited, anxious and so looking forward to the big day in January.

We were on vacation in Maine last week, and I couldn’t resist buying these super cute slippers in preparation for his first Vermont winter!

2014 wall calendar sneak-peek

August is here (really!?!) and I’ve been busy working on new designs for two different 2014 calendars launching in the fall.

Inspired by textiles from the 20′s and 30′s (specifically those by Sonia Delaunay), I’ve been having a lot of fun creating some new pattern and color focused designs. I am also excited to be offering a new 11″x17″ poster size, which contains ample writing space for all your planning needs.

These are still in progress, so if you have any feedback on design, color, layout, etc., I would love to hear what you think!

It was so fun to reconnect with JoAnna (a fellow Mount Kisco, NY native!), to create some beautiful invitations for her June wedding in Connecticut. The suite included the invitation, reply card, an enclosure card, and lined envelopes. Each piece was letterpress printed in black, with the addition of purple for the liners, on 100% cotton ecru paper. Head to the custom page for more photos!
