Introducing One & Only Custom Stationery!

Hey guys. Or probably more accurately, hi Mom and Elizabeth, the only two people who still bother to check this site after I abandoned it (and you, I’m sorry!) for a couple months. I’m back! I didn’t realize when I stopped blogging how much I needed a break, but on the other side of it, […]

Aubrey and Brenton

Today I am bringing you some invitations I designed last year for Aubrey and Brenton. They were married in Cary, NC (you can see photos from their wedding here), and wanted an invitation suite that would be glamorous and autumnal, but not use traditional fall colors. We started with a photo Save The Date, and […]

Letterpressed Christmas Cards

I am all about some holiday cards. I just love getting them in the mail, and I OF COURSE make a big project out of sending them. I have been working on this year’s cards since November, and I am going to share them here because unlike last year, when I did a terrible job, […]

The Field Notes From My Couch Surplus Store

Hello, loved ones. I have an exciting announcement to make today. I reopened my Etsy shop. I was doing a lot of cleaning and organizing, and I realized that I tend to have a lot of leftover craft gear. Things like extra fabric, extra yarn, extra cards from my card selling days… And I often […]

Graduation Announcement

I thought I’d share a quick little project I worked on last month – Michelle was graduating and wanted a graduation announcement to commemorate her accomplishments. I am continually impressed by the graduates who find their way to my site – they are almost all doing amazing scientific, engineer-y things, and I get so excited […]

Housewarming Fiesta!

My pal Liz just bought her first condo! Can I take a moment to publicly talk about how proud of her I am? She is legit making it in the big city all by herself, working in a fancy building and doing fancy things with her life, and while I am not surprised, I am […]


From left to right, top row: 1 2 3 middle 1 3 bottom 1 2 3 Now that I’m walking everywhere (which is going GREAT, being outside so much is really boosting my mood, and when you walk everywhere you get to buy new shoes because of comfort and style!) I’m finding myself in need of […]

Shop Feature: Tree Hollow Designs

I’m always on the look out for unique art for my home. Unfortunately, at this stage it’s mostly looking – my walls are maxed out! I was excited to come across Tree Hollow Designs – I love Jessica’s watercolor prints (especially that lil’ narwhal!) and it’s definitely worth clicking through to see her landscapes – […]

Jess & Dawson Moving Announcements

Recently my friends Jessica and Dawson bought a house! How exciting is that! Something that isn’t so exciting is that it’s in California, and I live all the way over here in North Carolina, soo.. I’m not really sure why they’re buying property in Cali when they are clearly going to have to move back […]

Shopaholic: Blink

Something I’ve noticed about the blog community is that it can feel like the same shops/items get featured on blogs over and over again. If something shows up in one place, it’s sure to filter through about 10 different blogs over the next month, and it can get boring. There are a lot of good […]
