Celebration :: Invitations

My love for paper started when the moment I was born, as my dad just started working for the USPS. He taught me the importance of sending a letter by post and the simple joy it brings when you receive a letter addressed to you. For hours upon hours, I would sit in my room and compose letters and works of art using magazine cutouts and newspaper clippings. I would scrap up 22 cents and give my dad my letter and my change to take with him to work the next day. (No, we did/do not receive free stamps. I am not sure how many times I was asked that question as a child). Then from age 10 to 22, I moved on average every 2 years and more often when I was in college. I became a very avid letter writing and sent thousands of letters to my friends and friends from previous cities. Currently, I obsess over party invitations. Doesn’t matter the party, I always prefer to send paper invitations than send an Evite or email. I want my friends and family to receive an invitation to a party rather than a bill. Hopefully, it brings a smile to their face.

Here are a few invitations I’ve done in the past (starting with the most recent):

Baby Shower: Flamingo pink square Pocketfold with lime green cardstock and zebra accents
