So Jeff and I are Doing a thing! A really scary thing! We are starting a YouTube channel called, the Great Charles Adventure! I know, I know, everyone is on YouTube or blogging, or vlogging. However, we really have a vision for our family. Jeffrey and I have so many dreams and goals. We want to document our process so we can look back and see how we have grown. As a couple, we got together when we were very young, 18 to be exact. Since then we have both grown so much. With the recent birth of our first child and a second on the way, our lives have been a whirlwind. I feel like we can’t remember most of what has been happening in the last year! This year we also celebrate our 30 th birthdays and the arrival of our second baby, so we really want to just get that all down on video. I really hope that you will join us on our adventure!
We want to hear from you! What are you looking for? What type of content do you want to see? We are thinking: family life/raising Two under Two, work life (running my business from home and trying to make it to the big leagues), and our family adventures (going around Orlando and our family trips) ! If you want to see something different let us know, in the comments below, or on the video!

Hello all of my beautiful Peacocks! Tomorrow Pretty Peacock Paperie heads to the Big Apple to the National Stationery Show! We are so excited to walk the show this year with the hopes of exhibiting next year. While we are in the city, we will also be visiting retailers. So, if you are a retailer that is interested in our line, please feel free to reach out!
We will be vlogging the entire weekend from our brand-spanking new YOUTUBE channel! Be sure to tune into our social media for the first video to drop! We are super excited and can’t wait to share with you the entire experience!
Ok so, these cards are a bit controversial. However, I really love them! When I was designing my line, I thought about my girlfriends. What do we love, hate, like to do? (The answer was we love drinking!) How do we talk amongst each other? (The answer to this was: we keep it real!) So it was only natural for me to come up with cards that fit the moments we have encountered.
A big situation that has come up is the dreaded break up. I know, touchy subject, but a reality of life. Some of those breakups were amicable but many (college years) were not so great. So these cards are for the ones that were not so great! Stay tuned for new break up cards about female break ups!
Many of you may, or may not know about our transition out of the wedding industry. As of 2017 we are finishing up our contracted clients and moving into the wholesale and retail arena! While I am sad to see my custom clients go, I am excited to begin this new journey. I will definitely miss the one-on-one relationship I have established with my clients! We will only take on 5 custom orders per year and each order must be a minimum of $2,000.
As we make this transition there are many new and exciting feats we have accomplished! The first of which is our brand sparkling new Wholesale Catalog! We are so pleased with the final result! Take a look for yourself on the wholesale page!
I am so happy to announce that we were featured on Orange Blossom Bride the last week of June! This shoot was super special because the couple photographed was a real couple celebrating their 10th year of marriage! Mitch and Leila are just the sweetest and their kids are seriously cute. Check out the full post here: Casa Feliz Vow Renewal
In the meantime, check out my fave images from the shoot!
Casa Feliz, the historic home located in the heart of Winter Park, was the backdrop for our shoot. This shoot featured beautiful Burgundy, Blush and lace wedding ideas. Since the couple were celebrating such a huge milestone, I opted for a luxury suede invitation. Inside the suede invitation, features a rose gold layer with a blush water color invitation. I wanted to keep the palette super soft in comparison to the other burgundy elements. I hope that you can draw some amazing ideas from our shoot!
