A Birthday Giveaway!

One year ago today I launched Design By M.E. Stationery and the Designed By M.E. Stationery website. I remember how excited and nervous I was pressing the “publish” button after the months of work I put into designing. I was thrilled when I started receiving inquiries and orders from complete strangers!

This past year has been a wonderful journey. I learned so much and I accomplished things I didn’t know I could do. I met a lot of wonderful, supportive people and I’m thankful for every single one of them. I’m so thankful for all of my clients who have helped me grow, thankful for the wonderful online friends I made who inspire me, and thankful for my family and friends, (especially my husband), who support and encourage me each and every day.

So to share my excitement and show my thanks, I’m having a contest and giving away a set of 10 thank you cards, designed by me, of course! I had a lot of fun with the card design. I used my favorite colors, my favorite flower and my favorite fonts for inspiration.All you have to do is hop over to my website, my Etsy shop or my Artfire shop, decide what your favorite piece of stationery is and leave a comment about it here on my blog. On Monday, Feb. 9th, I will put everybody’s name into a hat and pick a winner. Good luck and thank you for a wonderful year!!
Pin It!

I really like the "will you be my bridesmaid" cards. I looked high and low for those when I got married. I looked equally as hard for the "thank you for being my bridesmaid". They are really cute!
