Blogmusings on stationery
i was so thrilled when my friend amanda (who also happened to be my sorority big sis back in college days) asked me to design her recent birth announcement. we love their family, and they have THE sweetest daughter, reed. we had all of them over for dinner last summer, and when reed was done eating and politely asked her parents, “may i please be excused from the table?,” you had to pick up both rbb’s and my jaws off the ground. we had never witnessed such! and this gal did not forget her pleases and thank yous either. i sort of want reed to conduct a manners summer camp and for rush to attend every day. maybe even a couple two-a-days.
they welcomed a precious little boy into their family this past summer (this post is waaaay past due, surprise surprise) and i just love the simple and modern way he was introduced. her husband matt is quite accomplished in the arts world and i think simple and modern encapsulate their style perfectly. we decided on a stripe of chevrons and a fun chocolate and turquoise palette.
several envelope colors would look darling! (in the etsy shop here)
amanda is UBER organized and contacted me well before her due date to start designing these babies. so when the stork arrived, i slid in the baby’s stats, sent a final version for approval and the printed announcements nearly beat the baby home from the hospital. worked perfectly for me, since i could bring a meal along with the announcements and visit with my friend! isn’t he so cute?
big congrats to the moulthrops – can’t wait to watch that baby grow!
