a crafter since crayons, a computer nerd since the early apple, a hostess with the mostest, a maker of stamps and cards. graphic designer, teacher, mom of two girls. confetti by lexi is where it all comes together.
one of my favorite gifts when i got married was a set of informal personalized papers. i loved seeing my new name in print!
a lifelong crafter, graduate in advertising art direction, and relatively new computer nerd, i had already begun dabbling in printing my own invitations here and there, playing with fonts on classroom projects, and doodling images. so when i ran out, it was natural that i made new designs for myself, with my own take on color, text, and style.
two years later, a baby girl was born and i wanted to see her name in print too. along the way, my friends were getting married and having babies along with me - what better gift than something like the ones i loved so much myself?
the baby girl got older and another came along. we celebrated with birth announcements and themed birthday parties that needed the perfect invitations, creative ideas, and fun paper pretties. and, of course, stationery and notes with all of our names on them!
my attention to detail and flair for fun led to friends asking if i could do it all for them too. and soon "confetti by lexi" came to be. as my hobbies and interests evolve, they are reflected as well. mini magazines for blythe, photography prints and cards - even i don't know what i'll come up with next!
life's a party and every party could use a little confetti!
i live in new orleans with my husband and two beautiful girls, who love to create with me. in addition to my design work, i am a computer lab and reading group teacher for a few hours each week at my kids' school where i have taught in some capacity for as long as i've been in the workforce.
stamping + other paper crafts, playing on my computer, reading, watching movies, baking, harry potter, blythe, hanging with my girls, etc.
