Vintage Wedding Photo Invitation Suite

Well, you’ve seen the Vintage Postcard Save The Date I designed for my brother and his fiancé. And the runner-up Vintage Train Ticket. I guess it’s about time I show you the invitation, huh?

This invitation pays homage to our parents by using vintage wedding photos in place of their names. This creates a cool mix of traditional and non-traditional invitation elements, which is perfect for couples who want to be both conventional and unique.

Okay. How adorable are those throwback photos? They seriously make my heart melt.

Anyway, this suite is now for sale at my Etsy shop. Stop on by!

The sky’s awake, so I’m awake, so we have to play!

I’ve never been a morning person. I could easily sleep ’til noon every day. But when I do, I’m disappointed to have lost so much of the day. Especially in the springtime! So, I’m trying to become one of those crazy morning people. Ya know, like Anna? In Frozen?

She’s so stinking cute, isn’t she?

And at the request of a friend, I designed a print using Anna’s quote. “The sky’s awake, so I’m awake, so we have to play!”

I’m hoping it will inspire me to get out of bed every morning. And of course, it’s for sale at my Etsy shop if you dig it!


Bring on today.

I start a new job today.

I’m excited.

And anxious.

I spent the last week between jobs resting, refreshing and getting inspired. I read in a lot of parks, took Instagrams in a lot of coffee shops, drank beer in a lot of bars, designed a lot, slept a lot and watched a lot of strange movies. (Speaking of, have you seen Take This Waltz? How had I never heard of this movie before? I loved it!)

And, I even started taking those guitar lessons I’ve been meaning to take for twelve years.

It felt good to refresh! And now, I think I’m ready to re-join you all in the real world. Ready, go!


Introducing Letter19Design

Remember that time I told you about my big plans to re-brand myself?

Well, I finally did it. Say ‘hello’ to Letter19.

I’ve been kicking the name around for about a year now. I’ve said it out loud to people, I’ve played with logo designs, I’ve changed my Twitter handle… and I still really dig it. I dig the idea of defining a letter of the alphabet (‘S,’ obviously) with a number. It’s a way of looking at something differently. And that is exactly how I approach all of my designs.

So, I’m officially making it official. You can now find me on Etsy, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest as Letter19Design. And of course, over at Check it out!

The Color of Winter

There’s a lot of hate for winter, isn’t there? But I don’t really mind it. In my opinion, it’s a great time to get comfy, catch up on TV, drink hot toddies, sled, snowboard and chit-chat by the fire. And of course, the design-a-holic in me thinks it’s a great time to get some work done.

I guess you could say I think winter is a little under-appreciated. So to show it some appreciation, I created the little ode below with a photo I took in Schwenksville, PA and a quote by Terri Guillemets. Enjoy!


Vintage Train Ticket Save The Date

A few weeks ago, I revealed the design that my brother and his fiancé chose as their Save The Date. And today, I’m excited to feature the runner-up.

Like I mentioned, their proposal took place at Grand Central. So, I thought it fitting to present them with a vintage-inspired train ticket design. And even though they didn’t choose it, I’m excited to now make the design available to anyone whose theme and dream it suits.

So now, you can find it for sale on Etsy. Check it out! (And notice how the holes in the tickets are punched with an actual vintage railroad ticket punch. I’m super pumped about that thing!)




Vintage Postcard Save The Date

About a year ago, my brother orchestrated a beautiful proposal to his girlfriend at Grand Central in New York City. And not long after, my soon-to-be sister-in-law asked me to design their Save The Dates.

We sat down over Thanksgiving to discuss her vision, and of course, I did plenty of Pinterest stalking. Her Pinterest boards were gorgeous. They contained lots of soft pinks, sage greens and neutrals, as well as plenty of vintage cues.

Fast forward a few weeks and a couple of design options, and here is what they chose:



The photo on the front of the postcard was taken by Brigid’s sister the day they got engaged. And the postcard ornamentation on the back includes an illustration of the famous Grand Central Terminal clock, set to 6:21 to symbolize the date of their wedding.

If you dig this design, a similar one will soon be for sale on my revamped Etsy page. Coming soon. So keep your eyes peeled!
