Paper Me...

Something not too many people know about me is that I love, love, LOVE (like really LOVE) stationary products. I have a a million different notebooks, planners, thank you cards, holiday cards, and sweet little sentiment cards. There's just something about sending someone a personalized note or card in the mail that just makes me happy. Maybe it has to do with today's take on communication, between texting and summing everything up with 140 characters on Twitter, it seems no one takes the time to actually make a lasting impression or to delve into the intention or thought behind a given act. Everything is all business, we want it fast, we want it succinct, we want it NOW. Omit the extra flourishes. Get to the point and move on. Enter Heather Adams of wakeybaby. I had the pleasure of meeting Heather at the LadiesDC Spring Fling at L2 lounge in Georgetown. The event highlighted up and coming women-owned businesses that offer a varied group of goods and services. It was a great opportunity to network and learn about some really phenomenal products and services. I was delighted with all the ladies and their products and made sure to take note of several for future reference. Given my obsession with stationary products, you can imagine the giddy feeling in my stomach when I stumbled upon wakeybaby. Wakeybaby is a card company that specializes in making custom mommy cards, baby announcements, thank you and holiday cards, shower invitations and business cards. Heather Adams is the owner and designer and her designs (see photos below) are absolutely adorable and timeless. They are the type of announcements and cards that even after the event has long passed you hang onto because they're just too beautiful to throw away. I was so impressed with Heather's work, we're already in talks to design my next business card!
