where did you grow up & what is your favorite thing about growing up there?
I was born and raised here in Houston. Besides having a great feeling of community, I think my favorite thing about Houston is that there is always something new and different to do!
alma mater: University of Alabama (roll tide!)
where do you draw inspiration from?
Because my degree is in apparel and textile design, I feel most inspired when looking at fashion, prints and patterns. I think fabric can spark a great design idea! I also am inspired by décor, unique floral arrangements, vintage pieces, etc. Pinterest.com is making me sleep deprived!
why did you choose the wedding industry?
Because of my background, both in design and customer service, I thought the wedding industry would be a perfect fit. I love that the industry is constantly reinventing itself, so the more creative you are the better! I love meeting new people and being apart of creating the wedding of their dreams.
what is your favorite thing about working in stationery?
I love how stationery can truly capture a person or couple by the design details and packaging. There are always new trends or styles in stationery, and that motivates me to be as creative as possible. Whether it is a unique color palette, specific theme, or elements that reflect the bride and groom – I find it all inspiring!
do you have any pets?
Even though they are not my own, I consider my parent’s boxer dog Hank, my sister and brother-in-law’s pocket beagle Tuff, and their labrador retriever Maggie to be my own! Hank is super-sweet – a little too sweet for a “guard dog” if you ask me! At just 12 inches, Tuff might have a bigger personality than two people combined – he always keeps me happy. Maggie loves going hunting and fishing with my brother-in-law but enjoys “being one of the girls” just as much!
if you had to choose one "block" font and one "script" font to write in for the rest of your life, what would they be?
I do LOVE a small cap letter, so I would have to choose either "Garamond Small Cap" or "Trajan" for my block font; both are just so classic. I have to admit that I am a little obsessed with the swashes in the script font "Feel" (the capital "K" and lowercase "y" are too pretty!) but have recently fallen head over heals for "Lavanderia" - I just can't get over how delicate and beautiful it is!
