Sponsor Love + Giveaway – Lemon and Lavender


{shop} {blog} {twitter}

Ashley, the beautiful designer behind Lemon and Lavender, is one uber talented lady  Seriously, everything about her shop and blog exudes beauty (not to mention she is a bombshell of a momma to two little ones).  Ashley specializes in wedding invitations, birthday invites, birth announcements, custom stationery, note cards and custom stir sticks.  And has recently started dabbling in logo design.  She blogs about wedding (and all things pretty) inspirations, designs she is working on and daily life through fun photos!

{MEET ASHLEY}

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a full time mommy of two toddlers which keeps me insanely busy and the wife of a truly remarkable man.  Mom by day, and designer by night!  My husband and I have lived in Tampa, Florida for almost 2 years now and we love it but are ready to pack up and see where life takes us next πŸ™‚ We spent our first years of marriage living in Germany in this little quaint village and I loved it!  I loved strolling through the old town and stopping to have a glass of wine in a cafe with maybe some caprese!  I’m really laid back and I could totally live in Europe forever.  I try my hardest in the craziness of American life to really slow down and enjoy my journey.  I love cardigans and cute ballet flats.  I’m a simple girl who loves dressing up a t-shirt with pearls and heels.  If I’m not at my iMac designing or {blogging} I’m most likely snuggling with my hubby or babies with a nice glass of pinot noir.

2) How did you come up with the name for your blog/shop?
I had a blog while I lived overseas called Judith Shakespeare (after a fictional character in one of Virginia Wolfe’s best pieces: did I mention I graduated with a BA in English, design is my hobby and second love to books :))  and I had a list of my favorite things.  On that list was ‘lemon’ and ‘lavender’ and I thought hey that sounds cute for a blog name.

3) Where do you draw inspiration from?
Life inspires me.  I know that sounds so cliché but I love looking at ordinary things and seeing the beauty in them.

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint Chocolate Chip πŸ™‚
