toast & laurel

When I got back to the office on Tuesday there was a pretty package on  my desk.  Pretty packages are always fun.  It was from Megan, one of our clients in Houston, we love her!  {We love all our clients!}  As a graphic designer she understands the creativity process and has trusted us with more than one room in her house… we can’t wait to show you her master bedroom when we complete it!  Her note indicated that what was in the package was a congrats for our publications in Coastal Living and Southern Living earlier this year.

When we opened the boxes this is what we found…

You probably do not recall, but when I posted the magazine features the blog post was titled “coastal and southern”.  To celebrate the features Megan designed these notecards for us and we LOVE them.  The gray stripe looks familiar… it is the blog background!  We have been passing notes around the office like email is a thing of the past.   We LOVE them.  LOVE.

Megan’s business is Toast & Laurel.  Here are a couple other delights she has designed…

Check out her WEBSITE for links to her minted and etsy sites!  She can customize anything… she’s currently working on invites for Sloane’s First Birthday!  Yeah! THANK YOU MEGAN!!
