We have been so excited to share “A Girl Who Makes”
because that girl just happens to be one of our dearest friends … who also just happens to be insanely talented! It seems as if Laura
has been “making things” since she was born. Or, at least since we’ve known her! Really! She used to always be making things in the kitchen. Cupcakes were being cranked out by the dozen on a daily basis. But the constant drive to make things extends way beyond the kitchen doors. She’s a designer and a DIYer. She has never met a craft project she doesn’t like. Give her a pair of scissors and a glue gun and you never know what she is going to come up with. Basically she does it all!
(The images above are the invitations, programs and door decorations from her very own wedding!)
And these are just a few examples of the many projects she’s been playing with lately! Check out her new blog
for some step-by-step tutorials so that you can follow along with her in making things like the pocketed placemat below!
And, of course, we had to include one of our favorite creations of Laura’s: this light-up ampersand! Laura and her husband had this on display at their wedding reception. How perfect, right?
So follow along with Laura on her blog, A Girl Who Makes
, or contact her if you’re interested in having her make something special just for you. She likes to make neat things for nice people.
Pssst…this is also a little hint of some of the good collaborations to come on Ampersand here in the very near future!!
