Here's a pretty new grey bud to add to the bunch! I've just finished dying some really soft silvery grey and a fresh light pink, so new fabric flowers will be in the shop soon! This one is actually attached to a haircomb, so it tucks perfectly in around your bun or ponytail! Measures about 4 inches wide. They're all custom dyed burberry linen, wool felt and assorted vintage buttons!  These will also be available for sale at the Handmade Mart coming up this December 5th in downtown Silver Spring, so if any of you are in the DC area, come on out! We'll have stuff from the Paperie, Chapeau Co. (that shop I just set you to) and K.Flick Studios. It's going to be a really fun event, so we hope you'll stop on by! More details coming soon! 


Oh how we LOVE Snippet & Ink!

We were so excited to see Mia's wedding featured today on Snippet & Ink.  Check out all the beautiful detail shots and links to some of our very favorite vendors, The Floral Studio and A. Bryan Photo
I should probably mention that we did all the lovely paper details and you might remember all the craft nights and paper parasols from a while back! Congratulations, Mia and Christian! 



We're featured on Daily Candy's wedding guide today for our spectacular custom wedding invitations! It's an honor to be included! Read the full post here



This is one of my all time favorite invitations. These pictures are of the mock up. They were custom built hardbound covers with the invitation mounted inside, and a clear slip that holds the reply and travel info. They have a super cute custom bunny and woodlands theme and are tied up securely with a real twig from the backyard then tucked safely into a custom wrapped chocolate boxed stuffed with floral nesting material. No, the design did not stop there (but I have no pictures) we did custom stamps and guest addressed mailing labels for the outsides of the boxes. I wish every job could be so involved. This was a LOT of handwork and production. We were covered in PVA for at least 2 weeks. And I can't even tell you how much of that nesting material worked it's way all around the studio and into our homes! But, it was a blast, and a beautiful invitation.



I got married just about this time last year (my anniversary is coming up next weekend!) and if you saw my wedding on snippet and ink you can see the low down on how we did the whole thing for under $5000. I'm very fortunate to know a lot of people in the industry, and very fortunate to have family and friends who were willing to pitch in a lot of time and energy into making our wedding a super fantastic time. but anyway, back on track... I made my flower bouquet, out of flannel and felt, and I LOVED making it. So much so, that I have been crafting away in my spare time, and I am finally ready to put these out in the world. The bouquets measure about 11 inches wide, with a sturdy 8 inch stem. Bridesmaid blooms are 9 inches wide, and flower girl blooms will be 6 inches. They are handcrafted out of custom dyed overstock burberry linen, quality wool felt, and can have their leaf embroidered with your initials, or wedding date! The slightly smaller flower is a pretty white peony bloom that will (along with many others just like it) line the center of long rectangular tables for floral decorations at a winter wedding. And the small blooms are going to be pins, hairpieces, bouteniers, and other options coming soon. Right now, they are available through Churchtown Chapeau Co. If you are interested in ordering fabric flowers for your wedding (or any other celebration) shoot me an email!

CORPORATE ID : Garnish Boutique New Website!

It's no secret that we love Garnish Boutique, so we could not be happier to let you all know that today marks the launch of their new website and blog! We've worked closely with Mia and updated the look to feel more grown up, prettier, lighter, more fun! Thanks to Make Things Studio for bringing the new site to life! More to come on the Garnish front in the next few posts!



Rachelle and I work together on a lot of projects, but sometimes for personal projects (like this outstanding invitation for her little boy's 2nd birthday party) we like to keep secrets from each other. That way, it is still exciting to get your own in the mail! I was so excited when this arrived that I almost tore the whole envelope in half before I remembered to chill out and take some pictures to share with all of you! I cannot wait for the party, I'll be helping Rachelle with lots of decorating, planning and baking, so we'll be sure to post pics after the event!


Lonny Mag goes live!

This pretty much makes my morning. Chock full of great interior design, beautiful photography, charming illustrations and elegant digital design (check out how many viewing options you have... I recommend full screen) Lonny Mag does not disappoint. In other news, I have been CRAZY busy with a little renovation of my own. I know you think this is the longest move ever, and believe me, I do too... but the new studio is *cross your fingers* almost done! I have all the 1980's built in desks torn out, carpet pulled up to reveal beautiful wide planked wood floors, paint picked out, some pretty new chairs, the list goes on and on. All we need now is for our little half wall to be built and then the decorating begins! I can't wait to share pictures of the new space, nor can I wait to invite you all over to see it. You've been patient, but I think you will see, it's going to be worth it!
