I was raised in Hinsdale and have always been creative in designing unique items. As a teenager I made and sold personalized Christmas dough ornaments, in college, I painted shirts and sold them do all my sorority sisters. After college, I worked in advertising until I found calligraphy, which brought me to the custom stationery and wedding business.
While raising four children I opened a paper retail store. For over 20 years we worked with a tremendous amount of customers designing and creating beautiful invitations and stationery for any special event.
Now as an empty nester, I have paired down on retail and focusing 100% on custom ordering and designing invitations as well as the day of event paper needs. I love paper and enjoy working with clients to create a personalized custom invitation that reflects their personality and sets the tone for their special event.
