Y'all... I love the internet!! It's a crazy world we live in where you can find SO many like minded people with just a few clicks of a button. This is how the Featured Designer for March, Sara, and I met. I stumbled on her Instagram at some point and my color loving heart had a great time scrolling through her work. Sara has such a classy but fun style - which in some senses is what the aim for Natalie Ryan is. I felt an instant connection with Sara... through the screen of my phone.
Sara lives in Georgia and owns an online stationery boutique. She loves color, monograms and much like you, stationery! I couldn't be more excited to feature Sara and her work as the Featured Designer for March - enjoy getting to know her better in the interview below.
Name: Sara Hammond
What do you do? I am the Creative Director and Owner of Hammond ink Paper
Who or what inspires you? Color! I love color. Choosing colors for a new design or project is one of my favorite steps. I am also inspired by other entrepreneurial women. When I started my stationery business I thought it was going to be a hobby. Now that my girls are older, I am inspired to turn Hammond ink Paper into a sustainable business. So I turn to other successful women who keep me motivated and energized.
Do you prefer coffee or cocktails? Definitely cocktails. I never acquired a taste for coffee so I run on ice water until cocktail time with friends.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box, what color would you be? Green. Not just any green though. It would be the perfect blend of apple green, and kelly green with a touch of brightness. I would call myself Apply Green.
What is one thing that makes you smile every day? My girls make me smile every day. I am always surprised at their quick wit and their love for each other which melts my heart and always brings a smile to my face.
