Okay, the last time I did a blogpost, I was a bride. Now, I’m a WIFE. Seriously, that word is still so hard to get used to. I have a husband. Sometimes I say it over and over again in my head then I start to get really freaked out. This is normal, right? (Probably not).
Anywho, the wedding. The wedding was amazing and literally the most amazing, perfect, best day of my life. I will have a blogpost full of all the details (and another one just for the stationery, ’cause girl, that was EXTRA), but for now I just wanted to thank a few people that made the day possible. First and foremost, our family and friends. Craig and I have never experienced a day so full of love and excitement from everyone around us. It was so lovely. Applehead Studio. Shit. They killed it. We got our teaser photos (in this blogpost) and I’m dying to see the rest. They were absolutely incredible to work with. Danielle from Twig & Twine Floristry. I mean, I love flowers. I think that is obvious. Danielle did an absolutely amazing job and I can’t wait to share photos. Karla from The Wedding Vogue. She was so helpful in getting all my last minute changes figured out for me and was so easy to work with. Melissa from Paige & Peacock, Hannah from Hannah’s Cake Designs, Something Borrowed Vintage Rentals, Amy from Calligraphy by Amy, Lisa from Scribble & Script, Print101… I feel like I’m forgetting people, but that will all come out in the next blogpost with some actual details.
Now, onto some really exciting/terrifying stuff. 6 months ago, I quit my “real job”. I was working as a graphic designer at another company in Halifax, when I was approached by Duly Noted Stationery. I won’t go into too much detail because it’s not really important, but basically, I was presented with the opportunity to pursue Lupin full-time. After some brief chats with C and family, it became a no-brainer to say yes. Therefore, this fall Lupin Design Studio will be taking over as the in-house invitation company at Duly Noted Stationery. We will not have anything to do with the retail side of the store (though you should check that out because it’s straight up gorrrgeouuus). However, all of Lupin’s consultations, printing, work and transactions will be taking place there. Not a ton is changing. I’m going to get to offer a lot more variety which is extremely exciting, and I’m going to get to expand my business.
When I started Lupin three years ago, this was my dream. It was a dream that I didn’t think would ever really happen for many reasons. Being able to do what I’m truly passionate about everyday? Nah, it’s just a spare time “hobby”. 3 years later, I’m a boss ass bitch and I’m still kind of in awe over the whole thing. I’m so honoured, excited, scared and most importantly, proud of what the future has in store.
Stay tuned – more updates are coming!
