Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

The last cou­ple of months I have been doing a lot of work reassess­ing the Seamless brands while we work on their revised designs, both online and off. And in the process I’ve been doing some soul search­ing about what it is I actu­ally want to do with my time. Over and over again I fall into the trap of say­ing, “Yes!” to too many things, which has sim­ply resulted in hav­ing too lit­tle time to focus on the things that make me happy.

So, pos­si­bly one of the biggest real­iza­tions I made through­out this process was: I do not want to be a wed­ding blogger.

While I still love wed­dings, there are just so many other peo­ple out there (with blogs I still read and will con­tinue to read) that do a much bet­ter job than I. I’ve dis­cov­ered that it’s really not where my pas­sion lies; and there are many aspects of these events that I’m just not as inter­ested in since get­ting mar­ried. I sim­ply can’t keep up with a project like this on a daily basis when my heart’s not in it.

However, the vast major­ity of my posts here, and the ones I am most per­son­ally con­nected to (other than those about my own wed­ding), have some sort of design com­po­nent to them. I am still com­pletely enam­ored with invi­ta­tions, sta­tionery, and any and all visual inspi­ra­tion. So all of that con­tent will come over with me to design work life. As of now, there won’t be any sort of sched­ule — it will sim­ply blend right in to the daily posts I con­tinue to pub­lish — but that could change in the future.

I will also still con­tinue to design paper goods for wed­dings and events through Seamless Paperie—which is get­ting a huge makeover and expan­sion in the next few months.

I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to do with this space yet, whether it will become a per­sonal — and less often updated — blog, or if it will sim­ply exist as an archive all of our wed­ding plans. But for the time being, it will no longer be updated regularly.

If you’re new to the site, feel free to take a look through the archives. There’s lots of bits of inspi­ra­tion to be found. And if not, I hope you’ll come over to dwl with me and fol­low along.

Thanks so much for your read­er­ship over the last year or two. This online space has been a great out­let for me to nav­i­gate through the world of wed­ding plan­ning, and I’ve truly appre­ci­ated all the con­nec­tions I’ve made.

    I just stum­bled on this and I can’t believe I didn’t fol­low this before. I recently got engaged and I love going through this blog for inspi­ra­tion for my wed­ding. I’m thank­ful that you’re putting focus to the future (and design work life!)

    Hello.. I had a ques­tion on an older post, Joannes shower, where you wrapped the top of the box with paper. How did you do this?

    Oh my! Just when I saw your page? It’s sad to see this blog go. I’ve been brows­ing your site and it’s wonderful.
