Tiger Lily Faith Hope Love Note Card

I was able to catch up with her and ask a few questions;

LD: Adrienne, tell me a little about your notecards

Adrienne: There are four different sets of notecards to choose from.  Hope Faith Love, Brush Strokes, Feather and Hearts Marbled Collections.  I like to think of these note cards as paper goods for the stylish set.  Plus, they are eco-friendly!

Faith Hope Love Note Card Set

 

LD: Why paper goods?

Adrienne: I have always had a love for paper and stationery! I had pen-pals growing up and loved sending and receiving all kinds of goodies in the mail! That seems to happen less and less these days with all of the social media, but who wouldn’t love to receive a little handwritten somethin’ something’ in the mail?!  Just knowing someone cared enough to take the time is nice!

Hearts Marbled Turquoise

LD: What inspires you?

Adrienne: Color, color, and more color!  Art, paint, nature- specifically flowers and marble, which I can never get enough of.  It’s about taking those elements and making the hues bold and bright.  Some of the designs come from the need to add art to my blank walls. 

 Truth be told, inspiration can come from anything, whether it’s necessity or just the desire to create! –Adrienne

Yellow Lily Faith Hope Love Note Card

LD: Were you afraid of starting our own business?

Adrienne: Absolutely.  The fear is still there! I do not have a background in business, but in this day and age, being your own boss and having your own project on the side is such a good and necessary thing.  I think anyone who starts his or her own business has fear.  The desire to create and do it for you is so much stronger. 

I have a lot to learn, but I’m on my way! – Adrienne

Love me some Miss Mustard Seed! She was one of the first crafty/DIY blogs I ever read and started following.

I've been reading Mustard Seed Collective for a while and never caught a glimpse of Adrienne - she's gorgeous!! And she had the same name as my sister so she's a winner in my book ;)

Her new collection is soooo beautiful and I wish her much success.

I love special stationary, I'm old-fashioned when it comes to thank you's, only a personal hand-written note will do.

I have two of the marbled heart cards, and they are beautiful. However, my plan is to frame them. Lovely post.
