Ever since I first found her greeting cards with coordinating decorated envelopes at the University Bookstore, I have been in love with Mary Engelbreit. The first one I sent in the mail was to my sister, for her birthday maybe? And I am positive that it made it through the mail faster than a normal old plain envelope.
If you've lived under a rock and never seen any Mary Engelbreit art, take a look at her website, her blog, and her Pinterest page.
I'm determined to attend the Home Companion Workshop in St. Louis but they aren't holding it this year. I'm planning on being there in Spring 2014.
