sound familiar?

I’m the chick you turn to when you’re burnt out on late night Pinterest scrolling and cheap design... when you’re worrying if all of the details will come together juuuust right.

I thought so. And look at you go, crossin’ things off that to-do list already! You found yourself in the right place.

(If budget allowed, here’s where I’d play a clip of when Harry gets to Hogwarts for the first time and feels all sorts of magical.)

( i feel weird about this look-at-my-face slideshow but it is what it is. )

Because your story is significant. And a story rich in love deserves a little permanent ink, dontcha think?

I think there's nothing more delicious than letterpress on thick cotton, more delightful than bespoke artwork, or more valuable than creating family heirlooms from day one.

With a fine arts degree in my back pocket, five years of calligraphy experience, and more ideas than I know what to do with, I’m a solar-powered designer enamored with translating love stories on paper. 

Since 2013, I’ve been the right-hand lady for nearly two hundred brides.

I'm Laura and I have a lot of paper-feelings.

i thought you'd never ask.

Okay Laura, I read your fancy bio. But where are the fun facts?

Next fun fact

This is Max. He's my best friend in the whole world!!! And he gives me exclamation point feelings. We were married in May of 2013. It snowed (...in MAY) and our officiant was an hour late and a rooster crowed through our entire ceremony and I was so anxious I couldn't eat and I didn't even get a piece of my wedding cake.

My main man

It was the best day ever.

Next fun fact

He's an operating room nurse by day, Paper & Honey® sidekick by night. Max has a hand in nearly every bridal order that goes out the door, whether it's packaging up invitations, shipping client gifts, or helping me brainstorm our next big idea. His secret powers include clever and masterful wordplay (need a pun or a song right on the spot?), woodworking and building, and making me laugh until I'm sobbing and need to blow my nose.

( there's our lil veggie garden! )

Next fun fact

Look at them!! They're so cute I can't stand it! Moose and Pippa are our two rescue pups and my bffs. They make me feel like Beyoncé and just love it when I sing exactly like her, too. They're weird little guys — Moose won't eat his food if it's not directly on the floor and Pippa won't leave a room without bringing her favorite toy with her — but OMG. I love them.

Next fun fact

I have a killer collection. Nothing makes me happier than Saturdays spent in a greenhouse picking out friends to add to my plant fam — or at a flea market finding new little homes to propagate them in. 

(Also, their roots are hot pink. Science!)

I have a thing with succulents

Next fun fact

I've been a faux redhead since 2010 when I had a bad break up. I wanted a tattoo and a facial piercing... and ended up with the least painful option. Lucky for me I fell in love with the first box color I found! 

I'm known for my red hair and my four eyes

Glasses I've had since preschool. My eyeballs are terrible and do me no favors except the opportunity to collect some sweet ass specs.

Next fun fact

I read the books before they were cool. And I'm not the type of person to say that, but it's the only thing in my entire life that I did before it got cool, so I'm hangin' onto it. Also I feel scholarly when my mom calls on Monday mornings asking me what happened in last night's episode. Like I said, super cool.

okay, here I'm barb from stranger things. because i have no got pictures and this is still kind of fantasy.

I'm really into Game of Thrones

Next fun fact

My family consists of me and my parents, so I grew up entertaining myself.

I'm an only child

I think that explains a lot.

Next fun fact

Max and I started doing hot yoga late 2016 and it has quickly changed everything for us. It's one of the most challenging things I've ever done, but hands down the most rewarding.

Hot yoga is my happy place

First goal? Get strong enough that I can open a dang pickle jar all by myself. Second goal, crow pose. Third goal, something cool enough that I can update this page with an actual yoga photo. Small victories!

Next fun fact

My drink of choice. Michigan is a sacred and holy land, full of of Great Lakes and craft beer. Our summers look a lot like camping and beer festivals, sitting on the back porch after work with Spotify and a cold bottle and string lights. Actual heaven.

Craft beer, please

Next fun fact

( that's me gazing lovingly )

Recipe for the perfect burrito? Brown rice, black beans, chorizo or chicken, salsa verde, cheese, sour cream, and guac. Guac is ESSENTIAL. 

Burritos are my love language

This year there was a Chipotle gift card in my Christmas stocking and it was like my family finally understood me. #blessed
