Hello and thanks for visiting! I am the owner and designer behind the Etsy shop, Pretty Smitten. I love all things paper and love designing personalized stationery and party papers. It all began when I designed my own wedding stationery. I fell in love with the design process and seeing everything come to life! After a job in finance in SF, my husband and I moved to suburbia and had our son, Owen. After he was born I realized I needed and really wanted something creative in my life. Something ME. Pretty Smitten was born! And now I'm jumping into the blog world as well. I started Pretty Smitten, the blog, to share all things I'm smitten with...party planning and entertaining, interior design, fashion, food...everything! I hope you enjoy my ramblings!
