I’m fortunate to work with so many talented people but the true surprises are the receptionists in my office. They each are not only fantastic at what they do on a regular basis but they happen to be some of the most creative people I’ve ever met.

This project was inspired by the ever-so talented Elatia. I saw her “sewing a letter” to a friend and was completly blown away. I was so intriqued by the idea that I wanted to try something similar. I decided to send a little love letter to my husband and base it off of white college ruled notebook paper. Since I’ve never sewn type, I kept it simple for this first attempt. Many thanks to Elatia for the constant source of funny and inspiration!
