Decorate Your Desktop | September 2019 Wallpaper Background

I’m almost crying typing this right now, because hoooooow can it possibly be September?! It absolutely kills me to let go of summer, especially since August seemed to be “cooler” month this summer. I could R E A L L Y go for just O N E more beach day!

This month’s free Decorate your Desktop is inspired by embracing change, something I’ve NEVER been good with. I like to be comfortable, have a schedule, predictable, structure. But maybe if I could learn to let go a little bit, I wouldn’t be such a stress monster…haha.

YES! I’ve designed TWO for this month. Same quote, different background if you’re not into the whole “vintage” look. I also included a few oldies but always goodies 🙂 Pssssst…..did you know that you can easily print these wallpapers out and gift them as prints or cards??! 😉

Decorate Your Desktop | August 2019 Wallpaper Background

I can’t believe I’m saying it…we are only O N E month away from back-to-school! July flew by and August is already here. Only one more month to cram in all the summer fun activities, beach outings, farmers markets and school-free playgrounds. Usually by the end of summer, I’m ready for fall temperatures and apple orchards, cool mornings, and cozy sweaters. I haven’t thought that yet. Dreading it, really. I’m CLINGING to every 80 & 90 degree day. Because if this upcoming winter is anything like last…. 🙁

This month’s free Decorate your Desktop is for all my strong, badass girls out there, the ones with a little grit in their teeth and fire in their veins: “some women fear the fire. some women simply become it.”

Us girls, let’s empower the other. Pick each other up. Truly be there for another, to talk, to cry, to sit in silence. Less comparing, no judgement. More accepting, less gossiping. And hey, let’s fix another queen’s crown without telling the world it was crooked in the first place.

Because who run the world???! G I R L S.

Decorate Your Desktop | July 2019 Wallpaper Background

Somehow we are already a few days into the month of July and it absolutely blows my mind that summer seems to be halfway over already.

June always flies by, getting into our summer routine and our annual family cabin trip up north. We had so much fun creating so many new memories that we will cherish forever: endless swimming, s’mores, kayaking, ice cream treats, skipping naps, and staying up way too late. The kiddos especially loved the paddle boat, as did I—the ONLY time they sat still!

I’m looking forward to a much slower July and August, weekends filled with the farmer’s markets, sunset runs, and my favorite, beach days. Before we know it, school will start up again and I’ll have a 4K-er!

For this month’s Decorate Your Desktop, I stumbled upon this quote on Instagram and fell in love with it: “Nothing is permanent. What a wonderful, terrifying thought.” So much truth to it, I hand-lettered this quote on a stormy-blue background, because honestly, I’m flowered out! 🙂

Decorate Your Desktop | May 2019 Wallpaper Background

Welp! The first few days of May have been a bit of a drag! Gloomy, cold, and wet, us Wisconsinites are SO.OVER. cold, wet weather. Isn’t it absolutely insane to think that just two weeks ago we had a huge snowstorm?! The good thing is, it has GOT to get better.

For this month’s Decorate your Desktop series, I created a simple line drawing illustration of a flower to ooomph spring along. And just like we wait for good weather, “beautiful things take time.” Let’s all be a wee-bit more patient and know that warmer, sunnier days are ahead!

Since this wallpaper download is so simple, I decided to create it in three different colors: green (as shown), purple, and blue. Download these beauts in the links below the graphic.

It sure has been a doozy of a winter, and it already seems like the longest, dreariest Spring.

Decorate Your Desktop | March 2019 Wallpaper Background

For this month’s Decorate Your Desktop freebie, I HAD TO include springy florals after we set the SNOWIEST February on record, but also the SNOWIEST month EVER on record. I’m pretty sure we had a blizzard warning every single week in February, accounting for the 69.3” of snow we have…so far. Oh, and remember the Polar Vortex we had at the end of January?! Grrrrrr.

I found this floral beauty of a photograph on a favorite website, Unsplash, and I had to use it (anything to force Spring on us asap!), layering paint splatters over the top with a pretty calligraphy lyric by a favorite, Mr. Keith Urban, that reads:

“Well she was precious like a flower, growing wild, wild but innocent. A perfect prayer in a desperate hour, she was everything beautiful and different.” <3

Decorate Your Desktop | February 2019 Free Wallpaper Background

Let me start off by saying thank goodness January is OVERRRRR!

We started the new year off B-U-S-Y moving into our new house right away, followed by Emerson’s 4th Birthday which literally lasted all week, when it falls on a Monday, in charge of snack at school one day, playgroup snack the next, and a little family birthday lunch the next weekend. Too many cupcakes to count! A week after that, the whole house got hit with the flu hard. Started with little Everly on a Thursday + Friday. Emerson had it next for a few days and it finished off with the big people. (I mean, I was bound to get it after being puked on 4 different times, completely covered in vomit.) The minute we were on the upswing, the Polar Vortex hit, keeping us trapped inside for two more days. Literally the last week of January felt like an entire year. And being a goer like I am, going insane was an absolute understatement.

Let’s hope February is a much better month! With the heat wave this weekend, it already is 🙂 For this month’s Free Decorate Your Desktop wallpaper, without getting too  “theme-y” this month because shhhh! I can’t stand Valentine’s Day, I opted to create two different wallpapers since I got them to you all late. The first featuring a quote about comparison and the second, a bit more lovey. Hey, I had to!

A French Countryside Inspired Wedding Invitation Collection

You may remember a month ago I blogged about a super exciting sneak peak of a secret styled shoot.

Last week, that French Countryside Styled Shoot was published on Hey Wedding Lady. It’s always so rewarding to be featured on such a well-known wedding website among thousands of other insanely talented creatives in the wedding industry.

Today, I’m going to be a bit selfish and share closeups of the stationery that I designed for this styled shoot 🙂 When Christy Janeczko Photography and I started dreaming up and planning this styled shoot, we wanted to keep the whole look effortless yet timeless, with a rustic french flair. We wanted a ton of texture play, soft muted tones, and an overall ethereal feel. I knew right away that I wanted to create a simple wedding stationery collection on handmade paper with loose floral silhouettes and delicate spot calligraphy throughout, really letting the organic texture of the paper be the focus of the wedding suite.

You most definitely do not want to miss the beautiful blooms by Lacy from Allure Premiere Event Florists and the captivating venue, The Mill Events, LLC. And last but not least, Christy Janeczko Photography who really made this entire shoot come to life. (Really, she is the ABSOLUTE best at what she does. It’s evident in her work!)

Top Wedding Invitation Collections and Trends of 2018

I can’t believe that we are already at the end of 2018, already diving into wedding invitation collections for Spring 2019. But before I get ahead of myself, I wanted to take the time and share with you all my favorite 2018 wedding invitation suites that I’ve had the honor of designing. This year, not only did I get to work with local couples to the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area, but I also had the pleasure of designing for couples across the United States to pull-off their their destination weddings in New Orleans, LA and French’s Point, MA. Absolute dream weddings!

I swear, every single year, the best couples come to me, eager to create custom wedding invitation collections that not only coordinate perfectly with their wedding theme, but also describes their unique love story on paper. This year, my couples’ aesthetics were elegantly refined, embracing unique elements and concepts. Every element within these collections were carefully constructed and analyzed, from deckled edges and custom illustrations, to moody motifs and hand-painted accents. 2018 was the year of the finest paper details and I’m excited to share below my favorite wedding stationery suites with you.

Racquel & Dustin

Racquel and Dustin wanted to keep their wedding invitation collection clean and minimal, with a lot of white space. Together we created an effortless and elegant wedding invitation paired with hand-lettered calligraphy and rose-gold accents. Beyond the invitation, we created a custom map illustration of New Orleans, another hot wedding trend of 2018, and we finished off the collection with a vellum eucalyptus wrap secured with an embossed hang tag.

To see more from their custom wedding invitation collection, check out their Elegant Eucalyptus Destination Wedding at The Courtyard of the Maison Dupuy, New Orleans blog post here.

Courtney & Mark

Courtney and Mark have the most exquisite taste. Absolute perfection. Their love for vellum, organic lines, and hand-drawn details was at the forefront of their wedding invitation collection. Another hot trend for 2018 that I blogged about has been custom venue illustrations, and I had the pleasure drawing an intricate sketch of French’s Point. From the deckled edges, the floral vellum wrap, and the hand-drawn details, no element was overlooked.

To see more photos of their wedding collection, check out their Modern Floral Destination Wedding at French’s Point, Maine blog post here. You don’t want to miss these close-ups!

Kristine & Mark

Kristine and Mark wanted a “winter elegance” wedding day, filled with the most beautiful flowers including burgundy dahlias, blush garden roses, and hanging amaranthus throughout the beautiful Lake Wissota Golf & Events venue, finished off with a large wreath of cedar and eucalyptus to hang at the ceremony head.

Kris chose a luscious black pocketfold invitation collection to house all of the important details of their big day. Inside the pocketfold, I created an elegant invitation layered over a burgundy mat to coordinate with the flowers that would be on display. To finish the collection, Kris selected coordinating burgundy belly bands with their names in gold foil—the classiest finish.

To see more from their collection, check out their Elegant Winter Wisconsin Wedding at Lake Wissota Golf & Events, Wisconsin blog post here.

Jaclyn & Elling

This sweet couple stepped away from traditional dainty florals & went for a bold & edgy wedding invitation. Dramatic watercolors flowed throughout the their trifold wedding invitation paired with a fun, cohesive hand-lettered calligraphy font and secured with a brass finish. I love that Jaclyn & Elling chose this moody wedding invitation vibe, a hot 2018 wedding invitation trend as I wrote about at the beginning of this year.

To see more from their collection, check out their Moody Romantic Wedding at Rib Mountain, Wausau, Wisconsin blog post here.

There you have it, a few of my favorites from 2018! I’m so excited to see what 2019 holds, and what couples are wanting for their dream wedding day. Lots of new, exciting trends popping up for the upcoming year — be on the lookout for an upcoming blog post dedicated specifically to that: 2019 hot wedding stationery trends!
