How many times during my childhood was I asked what I wanted to be when I grew up? I had no idea what I wanted to spend my life doing. For a long time, I wanted to be in the military. The idea of traveling the world had great appeal. Then I wanted to go into law enforcement. Then I wanted a career in music. Later on, I moved onto thinking I wanted to be a teacher. It wasn’t until I was older and more comfortable with what my natural born gifts were that I found I had the right stuff to be a designer.
I spent twelve years working for a large civil construction company. It was while I was at this job that I realized what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing. I was already designing magazine covers, advertisements and posters, but I wasn’t being looked upon as a professional because I didn’t have the education to back me up. That’s when I went back to school.
Fast forward to 2012. That’s when The Golden Acorn Design Co LLC (formerly Golden Acorn Studio, LLC) was formed. In those early years I focused on commercial design for companies, brochure, postcards, rack cards, etc. I still love this work but found I really wanted to be in the wedding/special occasion industry. In 2015 I adjusted my branding and started creating invitations and stationery. Today, The Golden Acorn Design Co, LLC is a custom wedding and special occasion stationery design company.
When I am not working with wedding couples you will usually find me with a needle in my hand working on a needlework project, reading the next best thriller, with my BFF (my husband) or relaxing with my fur babies Julia and Sinatra.
The Golden Acorn Design Co, LLC is a wedding and special occasion design company located in southeastern Connecticut. Since 2015 we have been custom designing invitations and stationery for our clients that are unique and personal to their special occasion.
