Booth #6: Women's Fall Business Expo

Well, ya'll, the time is finally here! I am so excited to be a vendor in the Women's Fall Business Expo sponsored by Dee at Runako Designs. Thank you so much for stopping by my booth, and learning more about Dawn Correspondence! I hope all you newbies will learn a little about my company, and all you past customers will maybe learn something new!

Oh, and one more thing....be sure to read to the very bottom for some special surprises!

Fun Facts About Me/Dawn Correspondence:
  1. Dawn Correspondence started out of my apartment my senior year of college to make a little extra cash.
  2. I have a minor (and by minor I mean extremely major) obsession with shoes.
  3. I am debating painting one wall of my studio with chalk board paint.
  4. My inspiration typically comes when I am driving and have time to clear my head and think. I also get a lot of my inspiration from nature.
  5. I started out as an interior designer. I also dabbled in real estate for a couple of years before settling on my passion of creating stationery and paper goods.
Interested in knowing anything else about me, the company, or what Dawn Correspondence can do for you? Just ask, I don't hold anything back!

My items can be found on Etsy or Art Fire., and I am also a columnist for Handmade News. For all you brides out there, you can find my wedding invitations in either of my shops, or you can contact me directly for a custom order!

Here is just a small sampling of some of the products I create!
