Meet China!

December 2, 2011

I’ve been really fortunate to work with so many wonderfully talented interns here on Flights of Fancy. The newest addition to our team is China – let’s snoop around in her purse, shall we?

Name: China Frost
Location: Dayton, OH
Place of Origin: Spokane, WA
Cute clutch or hold-everything handbag?: Cute clutch! I don’t like to carry too many things.
What’s the one thing in your purse you can’t live without?: I would have to say my chapstick. It not only helps with my chapped lips but adds a little shine to them as well.
Current obsession: I would have to say that my current obsession is all things vintage… home décor, fashion, EVERYTHING!
Favorite source of inspiration: Wedding blogs, DIY blogs and Pinterest!

We’re looking forward to seeing China’s posts over the next 12 weeks!

Get to know us!

December 13, 2010

Morning cupcakes! Hope you all had a great weekend. It was a chilly one ’round these parts.

Today I wanted to share a fun little project the girls and I recently worked on. Since the Flights of Fancy team has grown, I thought it would be wise to share a little more about each of our personalities. What better way to get up close and personal than to go rummaging through our purses, right? That’s mine (above). Check out our About page to get to know the rest of the team!

Invitation Inspiration: Aubrey

February 17, 2010

Another one of our new designs for 2010 is called Aubrey. The inspiration for the design was really quite simple: I was day dreaming about an elegant outdoor wedding where the bride and groom tie the knot under a beautiful – perhaps even meaningful – tree and I wanted to create an invitation for that wedding in my head. Is it strange that I still daydream about planning a wedding even though I’ve been married for almost 9 years? Occupational hazard, I guess.

Anyway, I love the idea of bringing lots of elegance to the outdoors with chandeliers handing from tree branches and lovely chaise lounges on the lawn and other vintage touches – so I decided to create a design that was simple but also quite elegant. Here’s the inspiration:

Invitation Inspiration: Love Logo #22

February 11, 2010

I’ve been wanting to incorporate skeleton keys into an invitation design for a while now. They’re so beautiful and well crafted, and there’s something quite romantic about them. I wanted my design to reflect that same vintage, romantic quality and these images inspired the feel of the design…

Stay tuned for a formal introduction later today!
