Hope you love these as much as I do.  Happy Wednesday & Halloween!!


lily & mark: invitation.

holy moly.  

this past weekend something really beautiful happened.  Lily & Mark got married and it was an incredibly joyous occasion.  I really don't think words can express how big a blessing it was to see these two wed.  here are their invitations that I had the BEST time designing (as well as a really lovely photo of the beauuutiful bride from one of her 2 wonderful MOH's, Sarah--hi Sarah!).

how radiant is Lily?!  so much joy.  (photo by Sarah Pugliese)

I love how they love HP--Lily & dear friend/MOH Amy put a LOT of heart into these amazing envelopes!
plus, she & her sweet groom glittered those delightful little shields.

Lily & Mark, you mean so very much to us.  the biggest congratulations to you &
thank you SO much for letting me be a part of your wedding with paper goods!




headed to a flea market in a bit & I'm pretty excited to document via my iphone (I've had it for about 5 months now, and it is rocking my socks off).  anywho--I realized I haven't done the shameless "follow me here" plug yet, so...HERE IT IS.  follow me on instagram!  yay!  I'm @homeseedpaper!  here's my instagrid if you want to make sure I'm worthy....

in other news you should download this & this.  they are free & beautiful & they make me sing (& dance in my head).

happy holiday wkd.



leigh & ben: invitations.

This couple is made up of two individuals with the most delightful and radiant smiles.  You can tell just by looking at a photo of them that they exude so much joy.  Have a look yourself at their incredible wedding photos taken by three nails photography (sample below.....if that doesn't entice you to look I'm not sure what would!).

Leigh & her sweet momma were a delight to work with.  They also gave me the opportunity to see my work in letterpress form!!!  Eee!  We worked with Evanston Print & Paper and they were wonderful (hoping to do it again soon ;D).

congrats L & B!!  so much love to you and excitement for you.
