My very talented friend from College, Marion Greely, posted a teaser picture from her new monogram company and I was immediately in love!
She has started Cece Dupraz Monograms out of her home in Marblehead and I have a feeling she is going to do very well! And I know a certain soon to be Mom of a little girl that is going to be in trouble...
My brand is a combination of my daughters names, the joys in my life and also the reason for launching a brand, Catherine Crimmins (affectionately known as Cece) and Elisabeth DuPraz. The name also is a nod to both my mother, Nancy Crimmins, and my husband's late mother, Claudia DuPraz. I wanted to combine my skill set of design and all things pretty from my days of working for Brunschwig & Fils, as well as my sales and buying experience from my days owning and operating a boutique, as well as creating something that I could do from home so that I could *try* to create a work/life balance with a creative outlet and being a mom...and Cece DuPraz came to be quite organically! I'm loving every minute of it - and am hoping everyone can see that through the designs that are being created!
The designs are classic and beautiful with a special twist that only she could dream up! Take a peak for yourselves!
These cocktail napkins might just be everyone's Christmas present this year. LOVE!
Congratulations Marion on your launch and cannot wait to see all the gorgeous creations you come up with!
