One of the perks of being a government employee (during the day I serve the wonderful people of Louisiana) is that I get to have paid days off every once in a while; example: Today! It’s November 4th, Election Day (GO VOTE!) and I have a complete day off to do Whatever I want…or rather whatever I NEED. Hubs will be at work, Baby will be at daycare & that I means I’ll have uninterrupted time to DESIGN!!! YAY!!! *Cue the music & let the happy dance begin*
So, I had a consultation with a bride recently and in speaking with her and talking about her beautiful wedding, I learned that I have a lot of great work and ideas, but nothing to really show. Yes, I had my laptop and she saw the digital versions of it all, but I only had a couple of samples that she could actually see and feel. This made me think (as I’m currently designing her own bit of beautiful) I NEED AN ALBUM! Like seriously. I was originally going to build up a portfolio as i met new brides, but I’ve come to realize that in our world today, EVERYTHING is on the computer, so what good is a JPEG if you can’t actually touch it.
With that, I’ve decided that not only am I going to have The Penstroke Collection (letterpress Invitations) ready to order by Spring 2015, but I’ll also have the Kairos Collection (Pocket invitations), and the Meraki Collection (Holidays and Special events) ready to go!. The Album should be ready by June 2015, but the Actual collections will be available for order starting in February 2015!
I am SO Excited to be bringing these wonderful designs to you all and I can’t wait to have the Photographs and samples ready for you to touch!
