In 2012 Charming Tree Design was started with the hope of creating beautiful stationery for your most cherished events. Since then I have built an online stationery boutique specializing in stylish invitations, save the dates, and handmade favor and gift tags for your special day. Besides creating pretty stationery for weddings and events, I have helped hundreds of business owners create their visual identity by designing their logo and/or printed materials for their businesses over the past 15 years. I also have over 15 years experience in the print industry. Design, paper and ink is what I know best!
Beautiful calligraphy, soft pretty colors, and classic elements, are all things that I find myself incorporating into my designs. I love a classic invitation suite that will stand the test of time. Design and printing has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. My mom, dad, grandma and grandpa have all worked in the print industry for most of their lives as well. I guess you can say it's in our blood. My parents bought me a computer for Christmas when I was in eighth grade and I remember laying out newsletters and creating posters on it whenever I had the chance. It only made sense for me to go to art school. I couldn’t see it any other way. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communications from the Illinois Institute of Art.
In addition to being a designer, I am also a wife to my husband Joe and mother of two little girls, Haley and Olivia. They are the light of my life. I love camping, the outdoors, spending time with my family, traveling, Christmas time in Chicago, thunderstorms, snow (yes, I love snow!) and bonfires on a crisp autumn night. I love non-fiction books and am always trying to learn something new.
This is my passion and I am so happy to share it with you! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I am always happy to help!
