Where do you draw your inspiration from?
I try to keep abreast of what the current trends and styles are and then create something with my own flair. Often what is created is attributed to the mood of the day or something funny my kids said or did. A lot of my wedding stationery is inspired from what I think I would have liked if I could do my wedding all over again. I like modern and classic, yet charming and unique. I draw inspiration from everyday life.
What is your favorite piece in your shop and why?
My favorite item has to be my Vintage Carnival Wedding Invitation (pictured above). It was a custom piece and I had so much fun coming up with it. The bride gave me a fair amount of latitude to do what I wanted within her “vintage carnival” theme. It was awesome trying to figure out how to create a 3D ferris wheel as sort of the central artwork on the design. It was so much fun to create!
Name your top three obsessions currently:
I LOVE Reece’s Pieces. I LOVE the show Cupcake Wars. I LOVE the store Rose and Raven on Etsy! In fact, I just spent about 30 minutes today selling my husband on why it would be a great idea to buy me some jewelry from them!
Finally, I asked Emma to tell us about her favorite spot in her Little Maison and in one word how would she describe it. I think her answer is my favorite response so far!
My favorite spot is my daughters’ bedroom. I love it because it’s where we snuggle an laugh and play. In one word – couer – heart. Our kids truly are the heart of our home.
