So excited to bring you today's vendor feature. Erin from Lucky Designs! We've chatted over twitter, email + our blogs for quite awhile now. It was great to finally meet her at the Knot event at Greenacres. See our pics from the photobooth here.
Erin is a talented, fun + super sweet woman from Cincinnati with a great eye for design. She does custom monograms and stationary work. Erin also has a growing set of very reasonably priced standard monograms. Erin was nice enough to answer some questions so you can get to know her better! Enjoy...
How did you get started?
My own wedding! I had such an incredible time designing my stationery for my own wedding (and so many compliments from my guests), that I wanted to continue being involved in the wedding planning process. I love that I get to “be a guest” at many other beautiful events.

What inspires you?
My husband and my mom are a huge part of what inspires me. My mom's motto of "never give up" resonates in my head daily. It keeps me moving, even when I am frustrated. My husband and daughter are curious, entertaining people, and I always feel more creative around them.
Where is your favorite location to find inspiration?
My grandfather is in textiles, and I have to say that I love looking at fabric.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love how much the people behind my favorite blogs and companies care about their clients. I have a deep-seated conviction that the caring and personal involvement is what makes their writing, products and services remarkable.
If you could have lunch with anyone who would it be?
My grandmother - I miss her dearly, and would love to sit down and enjoy her spaghetti and meatballs with her.
If you had three wishes what would they be?
Take care of everything for my family, go to Italy, and be a fantastic photographer!
If you had to pick a theme song, what would it be?
I think this is an even harder question then what is your favorite movie. Music has been a part of my life since I started playing the violin at age 3. My theme song has definitely changed over time. I think it would be different in each stage of my life! Right now, I would have to say All You Need is Love by the Beatles.
Skyline Chili or Gold Star Chili?
Without a doubt, Skyline
