Toast & Laurel

My mind is swirling with things to share with you this week: a garden update, my love of tea, a life changing book...but after sharing a cup of tea with a darling new paper designer this morning, I'm happily distracted!

Megan Davis is the founder and designer of Toast & Laurel. {Cute name...forgot to ask how she came up with it!} She's young, energetic, personable, attentive to detail and has talent to spare!

In fact, Megan designs invitations better than I ever did...or maybe it's just that she's distinctly passionate about it! {It's so fun when you can just sit back and admire another designer's talent!} Here are a few of her invitations I photographed this morning:

Fresh and fun, but look at the regal feel of this one:

{She wrapped a dainty silver thread around the top.}

Her personalized stationery is clean and classic...

...just the way I like it!

I'm giving up the invitation, announcement and personalized stationery side of my business {details of that decision here}, but I feel great knowing that there are talented new designers like Megan {toast & laurel} and seasoned designers like Alston {b.wise papers} who will fill the niche beautifully.

And you know what's cool? Seeing other designers do their thing well gives me even more passion for the unique thing God has gifted me to design: custom Christmas cards. Back to my first love!

Happy Monday, Sweet Readers!

P.S. A note to my local {Houston} clients: Megan lives in my neighborhood, so if you're looking for someone who will meet with you in person to discuss your custom project, she's your girl. I've already told her I have the best clients in the world, so I know she'll love working with you!
