Hello Australia England and Canada! VO has experienced overwhelming international success, and has consciously decided to stay 'small.' I now book wedding invitations several months in advance to allow the time and attention that every project deserves.
Moved to Seattle and decided to turn the small business
into a full time dream job creating unique luxury invitations.
I started exploring, creating,
and eventually selling on Etsy. Sooner or later I started to
take myself seriously, and VO Handmade was born. V and O are, of course, my initials.
I worked as an interior designer for TLCD Architecture
in Northern California. They are a highly talented and extremely nice group of people. I learned an incredible amount and spread my wings as a designer.
My husband Eric and I got married in the center of five redwoods. Made my own invitations...
Earned a Bachelors of Interior Architecture
at U.of Oregon
which is an amazingly creative and challenging program.
While at the University I worked as a graphic designer at the Yamada Language Center
2000 and earlier
Somewhere in here I met my hubby, learned how to make one hell of a cherry pie,
skinned knees with my three brothers, and felt like
every day was art class.
