Small details can add up to tell a wonderful story, and sometimes that story tells just as much about the past as it does the future. When creatives draw inspiration from history and traditional methods, the result is often stunning. What other craft is so drenched in tradition and storytelling than wedding invitations? I am so thrilled to be sharing stories and reveling in the details with my good friend and guest, Hope Johnson. Hope is the inky hands behind The Little Blue Chair. Hope specializes in custom letterpress wedding invitations that capture a couple's story. For Hope, no detail is too small for her clients.
