CRAZY EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT! {hello heather}

So a few of you may have seen the blog post about the scrapbook line I had created in college (I deleted it later). Well, Melissa from Pretty Little Studio had commented on my Instagram post (I had also posted a sneak of the line there) and said something like, "Let me know if you want to print sometime." I immediately emailed her and asked her what she was talking about. I mean, was she for real offering to carry my line? Or was she offering just to print some papers for me to personally use? I didn't know.

So, I emailed her and she told me that she would love to have me be a designer for Pretty Little Studio. You know, like American Crafts has Dear Lizzy, Amy Tangerine, and Shimelle... Crate Paper has Maggie Holmes... So I was in SHOCK. WHAA??? Was that even a question? YEAH, I wanted to do that! This all happened while I was in LA attending CHA. So I had just been at the show all day, walking around, and I was dead tired. Then I got the email offer from Melissa and I could NOT sleep. Like, it literally took me a couple of hours to fall asleep.
All I could think of is "My dreams are coming true!" And indeed they are. :) :)



Above is a sneak photo that Melissa sent me of the finished products. How stinkin' GORGEOUS are they?! (I'm a little partial.) I haven't gotten the physical products in the mail yet, but as I told my friend MarLeah, I can't wait to hold my baby. <3 I worked intensely on finishing this line up for about 2-3 weeks, right after I got back from LA. I had a lot of it already done from my college project, but of course I had to tweak things and design more items. And now, it's ready. 

Friday, February 26th is the release date, so mark it in your calendar! Two weeks from tomorrow and counting! :)
OH, and here's a sneak from the website: click HERE.
