I’m trying to dial back to the basics of my business. I’m trying to focus on what I love. I think that’s the core of my brand, just me being me. I love just sharing my passion and hope that someone else likes what I’m doing. And obviously in my journey I am running a business so I must always keep that in mind, but carefully without betraying who I am and balancing this with what best suits my clients.
I’ve been working with Ciarra at Silver Fox Calligraphy on some branding elements that will reflect this. I love pretty paperie and beautiful wedding details, but more than that, I love when there’s a story and some meaning behind those details. It’s what I preach to my clients and I think I need to start setting a better example for them. With that in mind, Ciarra has created a few special pieces for me that really hit home and are the core of who I am and what wedding planning and floral design is all about for me. I will show all the details in the coming months, but for now, I’d love to just share my winter stationary that I had her design for me.
I haven’t counted the exact number of birch trees on our property, but there are a lot. And their paper white bark just makes me happy every time I look out my window. With a blanket of white surrounding them, it’s a peaceful and serene scene. I want to share this sight and yet preserve it for myself. So I sent Ciarra this photo and asked her create a watercolor card.
She captured it perfectly each time I send out a little note, it makes me so happy. I paired the cards with deep dusk blue envelopes and simple white liners that have a wood grain texture. I also had a stamp made with a flower she sketched especially for me so I can add a sense of nostalgia with a golden wax seal.
I absolutely love snail mail (both sending and recieving!) if you read this post and would like to see a card in person, I’d love to send a piece of happy mail your way, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address 🙂
