Quirk #3,204: Paper goods and fabric make my heart sing.

If you’re in the market for invitations, paper goods, fabric, stationery, and anything cute, Ann Kelle may be the lady you’re looking for. Below you’ll find an assortment of her products, any and all of which look sweet enough to eat.

It all started in 2000. Well, to be fair, we probably need to go back a bit further to when nine year old Kelle Boyd was carting around sketches of her own line of children’s clothing and wedding dresses in her backpack. Fast forward to over a decade later, Kelle had long since traded in her colored pencils for a career in public policy. While working for the Mayor of Nashville (and a bit stressed), Kelle’s childhood dream was rekindled when she went to a local craft store to purchase art supplies as a stress reliever. Two years later, Kelle took a step of faith and launched Ann Kelle Designs. Her fresh and bright designs immediately caught the attention of the industry. A week following her debut, her designs were being presented to Target. (Ann Kelle, About)

“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

After a long (and I mean looooooooong) day of catching up on all things graduate school and job hunting, I stumbled upon exactly what I needed to inspire me.

Audrey Hannah, a Denver-based photographer, is responsible for the works of art seen below. Having taken a few photography classes of my own, I can’t begin to explain how exquisite her work is. It’s so beautiful it’s almost disgusting how talented she is.

Her blog is extremely well organized and viewer-friendly, so check that out also.

I hope these pictures evoke in others what they did in me: a weightless sense of hope and whimsy.
