Handmade custom invitations & stationery

There are moment when your life shifts.  Usually these are small moments when big change is least expected but most likely.  Saying yes to an idea or just being in the moment with an welcoming mind can open doors to so much good. I’ve said it before. One of the great joys of this business are the people.  Our couples, the artists I share each day with and the fellow industry talents I call friends.  This story is about those friends. In November of 2009 I hopped a flight to join Lara Casey and team in celebration of Southern Weddings […]

A custom piece I had Caroline of Paloma’s Nest create for the studio last year. I sat down with myself this weekend and took a tour back in time.  2010 was an exhilarating year of firsts, falls, freedom and family in so many ways.  I leap into 2011 with a full heart and peaceful mind thankful for more than I can properly put into words.  This is a year to build upon all that we have learned while being mindful of those who helped us along the way.   Most importantly to the couples who make each day what it is […]

I tweeted this on Monday: “2011 planning continues this week. My go to words this year: RE-DEFINE, GRACE, PAINTERLY, NARRATE.

We get only so […]

Okay, I know the blog title is cheesy but here I am still in Austin and loving every minute of it!  I had the great fortune of working with some amazing individuals over the last three days and feel truly inspired to be creating art with them.  Caroline, from Paloma’s Nest is a kindred spirit of sorts and collaborating was a treasure.   I even had the privilege of painting for several hours on her very own studio table – how cool?!!  My time here has been quite magical, between eating a generous spread at the Famous Salt Lick to […]

As you know, Paloma’s Nest pieces are among my favorites.  For me her Modern heirlooms are like a breath of fresh air.  Two pieces in particular play a part in my daily life and are cherished for their simple, yet profound message.  This is the heart of what makes a Paloma’s Nest piece so impacting – simple message filled with sincerity, heart and hope. The new Paloma’s Nest site is live and it is simply gorgeous.  Tons of new features to make custom ordering a breeze and the lovely new Heirloom Packaging are just some of the highlights surrounding Caroline’s […]
