My nose has definitely been to the grindstone as of late, which sounds drab and dull, but is exactly the opposite when you love what you do and the end result looks like what you'll see below. If you don't know, I've been tinkering around with design on the side of my studio work on a project called hi, friend. We (meaning myself and my lovely business buddy Jennifer Mele) quit holding our breath in April of this year and finally launched the site: www.hifrienddesign.com. It's an online retail space where you'll find printed goods and gifts like stationary, candles, wine bags, semi-custom wedding sets and the like. Our goal is to overload the shop with many twee things that will make your little hearts twitter.
All that to say, I can't help but share what's been going on in that realm of my life with all of you present in the other, StudioM-centric realm of my life. So, without further ado, what follows is a post excerpted from the hi, friend blog:
As I alluded last week, you're going to melt when you see what we have for you today. Dani Ross of Weddings Fresh coordinated a style shoot to showcase several of us in the wedding industry. When she asked if hi, friend would be interested, we said "Yes!" as emphatically as a bride would say "I do" to her groom. That might be an exaggeration, but you get the point. Needless to say, we were honored to be a part of the collaboration and are thrilled to share it with you. And, to top it off, we're announcing the debut of the English Department Wedding Set in our online boutique. Available for order as of today. Melt away! (All images ©JessicaHillPhotography.com)
