the sparrow fund

Libby and I are excited to help spread the word about The Sparrow Fund, an organization that equips families spiritually, physically and financially who are lead to adopt a child. The process of adoption can often be tedious, long, and expensive, so The Sparrow Fund steps in to walk alongside families and to make the process easier. Their programs and grants have changed the lives of so many little ones and their new families.

Frontier Paper Company will be donating 10% of our May sales to The Sparrow Fund, so, if you have an upcoming event or gift-giving occasion, this would be the perfect time to place an order and share in supporting a fantastic cause. Or, you can donate directly to the organization by visiting their site.

Libby said it well: "we're all adopted children of our Heavenly Father, so we're excited to celebrate this special love by partnering with The Sparrow Fund."

Shannon Eddings Interior Consulting

Libby & I have a sweet friend Shannon who is incredibly talented... in so many ways. She is an illustrator, stationer, & designer, AND she has recently launched a new venture - Shannon Eddings Interior Consulting. Her own home is styled so wonderfully with lots of mod + vintage combinations. Her choices of patterns, fabrics, accents and arrangements is just downright inspiring. Check out these awesome photos!

All photos are from Shannon's website: clapping tree design.

I love the look of this watercolor save-the-date. So simple, fresh and handcrafted. This was designed and created by Swiss Cottage Designs in Brooklyn, NY. Just sharing a little inspiration with you....

for the fashion forward

NET-A-PORTER's Wedding Boutique is a great inspiration launching pad for the fashionista brides out there. Their curated, easy-to-navigate "magazine" of good ideas focuses on every detail for the bride to the mother of the bride's dress, shoes and accessories, bridesmaids dresses and even honeymoon packing tips.  

When we're meeting with brides about their wedding invitation inspiration, many times it comes down to the look and feel of the wedding fashion. We love to let the paper design be inspired by the patterns, colors and textures that will be worn throughout the wedding events.
