Meet Nellie

Hello! My name is Nellie. I am a stay-at-home mom who lives in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin with my husband, Matthew, and my three children, Finley, Navy & Edie. With a degree in Graphic Design, I worked in corporate design for a few years. Searching for something more my personal style, I became the designer for a boutique paper store in Milwaukee, WI and it brewed a passion in me for invitation and party design. When I became pregnant with my first child in 2009, I decided to stop working in the professional world and opened up an Etsy Shop where I sold printed stationery, baby onesie stickers, invitations and announcements! I've now found my niche in printable party invitations and decorations and use my own children's birthday parties, and other family events, as platforms for my designs! I pride myself on throwing budget-savvy parties in hopes to inspire the "average jane" to feel confident and comfortable creating their own similar event!

I hope to inspire you with images of beautiful events using nellie*design printable designs as well as small snipits from my life! I hope you enjoy!
