hi friends!

My name is Katie, and I was born and raised in northern New Jersey, but since 2013 the suburbs of Chicago have been my home. Chicago means the world to me; it’s where I moved after I married the love of my life, Greg; it’s where I founded my wedding invitation and stationery business, and it’s where I’ve built a life full of excitement and adventure. The Chicagoland area also happens to be the place that brought our amazing rescue puppy, Wrigley, into our lives!

I often get asked why I chose the name Bluebird Paper Company, and what it means. The truth is, it means a lot of things.

It’s an homage to two of my favorite songs, “Bluebird Wine” by Stoney LaRue and “My Bluebird” by Ryan Bingham.

It’s a memory of a pillow that sat on the couch at my grandparent’s house many years ago. It’s a nod to my favorite color: blue! It’s my constant sign from the universe that things are going the way that they should be. For some reason I seem to find bluebirds everywhere I go, and so when it came time to name my brand, Bluebird Paper Co. was the obvious choice.

Paper lasts forever

This Jersey Girl met and fell in love with her Chicago Boy while attending a mutual friend’s wedding back in 2009. I was just 19 and he was 24. I had planned to bring a date as a guest to this wedding, but he bailed on me last minute. Good thing though, because this is where my love story begins. My dad introduced me to Greg, and I thought he was such a goof, but for some reason I just couldn’t stay away from him! We drank our way through the cocktail hour and then danced together all night during the reception! Four months after meeting we began dating exclusively, and the rest as they say, is history! Fun fact: my stationery business was actually Greg’s idea -- without his constant support and encouragement, Bluebird would not be where it is today.

I’m a firm believer in listening to your gut and following your passions. I’m a mostly self-taught artist, and in the beginning of my career I would shy away from telling people that I wasn’t traditionally trained. However after four years of being in business I’ve finally learned to take pride in the fact that I followed my artistic passions and embraced my natural artistic tendencies to create a business that truly fills my soul.

Typically I’m not much for name brand products, but I do have a soft spot for Kate Spade hand bags and a killer pair of heels. I truly believe that when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, you do good! When in doubt, keep your style classic, and always put your best red-soled foot forward.

Quite possibly the most important person (yes, we really think he’s a person) in my office and house is Wrigley! This handsome guy came to us by way of the Naperville Area Humane Society in October 2015. He is a “pure bread” mutt, and he’s just the cutest little 22.5 lb. package of puppy perfection that you’ve ever seen. Wrigley’s hobbies include giving very aggressive kisses, trying to distract me from my work, napping, snuggling, and going for walks.

I truly feel as though we have the best family and friends (or chosen family) in the world. The only downfall is that they live all over the country. One of the main reasons that I decided to start my own business was so that I could be in control of my own work schedule overall destiny. Having the ability to take my work with me where I go, whether that’s to New Jersey to visit my parents and family, or across the pond to explore castles in Ireland, I love knowing that I have the option to go where I need to be. Some people live to work, others work to live. Bluebird Paper Co. is the perfect combination of these two ideals, and the flexibility it gives me to be present in the lives of my friends and family is something that I’ll always be grateful for.
