Makin' It Rainbow: A Celebration of Color

During a recent consultation, we expressed our excitement to the bride about finally getting the chance to do invitations for an Indian wedding. As visions of bright magenta and vivid orange danced in our heads, she sighed with exasperation at the thought of going with the colors she said "every Indian wedding in the world does." And much to our chagrin, she boycotted magenta and orange...

But, we hope still, especially when you look at these amazing shots taken by Indian photographer Poras Chaudhary of Holi, the Festival of Colors, as spotted on the blog Desi Nuts. Simply amazing!

(Can we settle on magenta and teal?)

Of course, we're here to give our brides whatever colors their hearts desire. But can you deny the striking beauty of such a gorgeous palette?... Neither can we.

Inman Park Festival

The Inman Park Festival was this past weekend. It was super fun and really hot. Every year the eclectic neighborhood of Inman Park hosts a festival with all kinds of hand made crafts, food, music, and a one-of-a-kind parade. It was really inspirational to see what the vendors were selling, (so hopefully that will get us moving on our new stationary lines.) and it was a fun festival to just soak up all the creativity. Here are some pics from the parade and just of the festival in general.


There were tons of people there!

I just thought this sign was funny.

The parade.

Thanks Lady Rogue & Urban Cottage

Last night my business partner and I went to our first Lady Rogue Business Networking function. It's basically a network of people that either own their own business or are thinking of starting a small business. There are monthly meetings and online chatting to foster creativity and create community amongst those that have taken the plunge into the small business world.

The meeting was held at Urban Cottage (One of my favorite boutiques in the Highlands) and it lasted for almost 3 hours. It was a great networking experience that was laid back and not too intimidating. Everyone was so friendly and encouraging. We might have even gotten a few potential clients! Hopefully next month's meet up will be just as fruitful.

Silent Auction Success

Saturday night was a huge night not only for Farewell Paperie, but for my boyfriend, Justin, as well. His soccer club hosts a huge fundraiser every year called "Casino Night" where items are auctioned off to raise money for the club's scholarship fund. Justin was in charge if it this year and he did a great job. Everyone thought it was a success. To help promote Farewell, my partner and I participated in the silent auction and donated a gift certificate for our services. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous thinking no one would bid on our stuff, but halfway through the night I went over to look at our sheet and we got a bid! So, we'll be working on a new invitation soon. (We'll definitely post it once we get started.) I was also very excited and glad that people had the chance to check out our samples. It was a great venue for networking and we got tons of compliments on our invitations, so hopefully the word will get out there.


Here are some pictures I took at the venue.

Dogwood Festival

So the Dogwood Festival is this weekend and I live right by the park. I love the fact that festival season is starting and I'm lucky to be in the middle of it all, but I HATE the fact that people are super when it comes to my on-street parking. I've put up cones before to deter people from parking in front of our house while the festival is going on, but people have moved our cones to park there and even worse have stolen our dog leash when I put it up as a rope.

To calm myself from all the madness that is about to occur tomorrow, I have decided to take some lovely pictures of the pretty flowers around my neighborhood. I hope to use some of these pics for future stationary or inspiration on a new project.

Farewellpaperie.com is finally live

Finally, farewellpaperie.com is up and running! We poured a lot of our heart and souls into this, so we are really excited to finally have the website up. Of course, we must give a few shout outs to to all those that helped:

Thao Nghiem helped us program the site. She's an awesome programmer and without her we would still be twiddling out thumbs in front of the computer wondering how to read HTML. Thanks for putting up with us, Thao. Check out her site thaonghiem.com. She's a talented lady!

Also, Dan Schultz, who is an amazing photographer in the Atlanta area, photographed our samples for the site. Because of his expertise, our work looks that much better and we couldn't be happier with the shots. Seriously take a look at his site, danschultzphoto.com. and hire him. He's great to work with and super nice.

So enjoy our site. We are super proud of it. And just a little footnote, we are currently working on getting stuff ready to sell on Etsy, so be on the look out for those individual cards to be posted soon.

After months of getting our company started, organizing the biz and (hopefully) publishing our website in the near future, we finally thought today would be the day where we begin our blog. Welcome to Paper Relish. Because our business, FareWell Paperie, is all about our love of paper, we thought we would start a blog that would not only inspire our work, but would inspire you as well. We'll have all sorts of posts from what we think is great design, to what we do in our every day lives, to even having guest bloggers. Hopefully you'll enjoy reading this, as much as we enjoy writing it.
