Ten years ago I started a small online business selling table favors and custom wedding invitations. Trust me in the early 2000’s this was not a common thing. As time went by our mini business slowly became an invitation line offered in retail stores all over the US. Now a decade has past, a new design team is in place and new website is about to be born. Smitten on Paper will launch January 2012 with custom stationery & invitations for all life’s celebrations. As we eagerly await our grand launch please enjoy our little blog which will be a home to great ideas and inspiration, including DIY projects, real love stories, contests and giveaways!
