meet kimi. (hi kimi!)
you might remember her from her amazing dress or her overall badassness.
and if you hadn't guessed by now, her background is graphic design. and these are the invitations she created for her own wedding.
that kind of talent = i don't have it. which makes me think...not everyone does. and the ever practical meg (who, as you know, exudes general badassness as well) was just as bowled over by kimi's STUFF.
because it was obvious to us. that kimi's totally got it.
the heart, the patience, the mind, LE GIFT.
and actually, we're not the only ones who noticed. once kimi's talent was showcased, it became the most popular kid in school. she started getting requests for her designs from friends and then friends of friends...and then friends of friends of friends. because really, who doesn't like to impress for less (and impress she does)? and really (in my opinion), what's the point of a gift if it can't be shared?
thus became the idea behind her ideas. why not make her designs affordable and available to everyone.
the answer: printable press. she provides the design and you print as you like.
i can go on and on about how special this launch is (because it really is), to try to express all the fuzzies i feel about how she's taking the leap into starting her own business (THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US), and how proud i am that such sensible and fabulous options like printable press are becoming more and more available to all of us.
but i won't.
let me just show you the why.
all designs available at printable press.
i know. i have a feeling i'll be her cheerleader forever.
