{happy weekend!}

As I mentioned earlier, we’re in the middle of an incredible heatwave here in DC (and apparently half of the country).  When my husband calls home each night from overseas, we definitely spend a good amount of time complaining about the heat in our respective locations – which makes most of our conversations pretty boring, actually.  He comes home soon; we’re in the final stretch and just counting down the last few days.  It feels so good to know that this will all be behind us very soon.  Next week is shaping up to be a flurry of activity as I try to wrap up a few loose ends, thankfully most of it indoors.  But in the meantime…

Happy Friday everyone!  Do you all have fun plans for the weekend?  Most of my friends are out of town this weekend, so it’s shaping up to be a rather boring weekend for me.  But that’s totally fine by me; I’m looking forward to catching up on some sleep and getting some things done around the house.  No matter what, I’m sure my weekend will involve many listens to this Belle & Sebastian song; I was kind of on the fence about the most recent album, but I can’t get this song out of my head!  But in the meantime…

Happy Friday everyone!  I feel like I’ve spent most of this week in daydream land, making plans for all of the things that I want to do with my husband when he comes back home in just a few weeks.  Most of them happen to involve food, since my husband has been living on terrible cafeteria food for the last six months.  And I think there should be at least one cake waiting for him when he comes home, don’t you agree?  Anyway, right now I’m looking forward to hanging out with one of my favorite girls tonight, but in the meantime…

Hello Tenfold

The idea for Hello Tenfold began shortly after I got engaged and realized that (besides the marrying part) my favorite part of wedding planning was designing the paper goods.  Within a year I left my graphic design job and a shop was born! I feel lucky to have found something I love doing — so much so that work doesn’t feel like work anymore.

You’ll see lots of invitation designs in the shop, but I’d also love to create a fully custom invitation suite for you and your fiancé(e). If you happen to be local, we can meet to talk about your event in person. If not, I’m available by phone (just ask!) and always by email. A few of the designs you’ll see in the gallery are part of my Bella Figura collection.

When I’m not designing invitations, you can find me on my daily design blog, Mint.

Not only is this a holiday weekend, but it also happens to mark the anniversary of a very important personal milestone.  One year ago today I officially became a full time blogger.  I worked a final day in my old office, bid farewell to my former colleagues, and practically skipped down the hallway and out of the building.  The transition was a long time coming, but it was still a huge (and terrifying) decision and I had no idea what would unfold over the coming weeks and months.  A year later, I’m so happy that I made the leap and incredibly grateful that I get to share beautiful paper with all of you each and every day.  So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for reading (and thereby making this blog possible), and I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!  But in the meantime…
