every great design begins with
an even better story.
Looking back I can say that icandothat design was more of a surprise than a thought out plan, but I'm awfully happy with where we are now!
Let's start from the beginning, I inherited the creative gene from my mother and always enjoyed doing crafty projects as a child. I took a design class my freshmen year of college and was hooked. I graduated with my degree in communications and graphic design from The Ohio State University in 2008.
For the next few years, I worked full time in the marketing/design fields while living in Columbus, Ohio, Richmond, Virginia, and Washington, DC, where I gained a wealth of printing knowledge. On the side, I dabbled in all things design, from logos to party invitations and was even a scrapbook paper designer for a while!
Well one referral led to another, and another, and I found that each design request that came my way was welcomed with an enthusiastic “I can do that!”... and well that phrase stuck!
Today, I work from my home office full time and my main focus is simplifying the wedding invitation process for couples across the country. Whether you swoon over classic details or are drawn to bold designs, I am here to provide endless creativity and design expertise. Let's create an invitation stylish enough to satisfy your vision yet classic enough to win grandma's approval.
That’s enough about me, tell me about you!
I met my fiancé, Vince, on a camping trip with mutual friends. We did that whole long distance thing but fast forward 3.5 years and three moves later and we are engaged and planning our own wedding in March 2018 (our colors are emerald, sage, and olive green with pops of mustard yellow). The cute fur ball in the middle is our sweet Australian Shepherd pup, Zoey!
I can't lie, my beginning years in business included a lot of design work from coffee shops, couches, and kitchen tables. I feel lucky to finally have an office to work from in our home in Queens, New York. On weekdays you will find me at my desk, still in pjs, with a mug of chai tea, while I obsess over the perfect details for my sweet wedding couples!
