    Newly married with a new home and nothing monogrammed to show for it – please help! We’ve fallen on some hard times right now and all of my very favorite things in life (stationary, a monogrammed headboard, calling cards) don’t seem to be the essentials that fit into our budget (rent, insurance etc!) I absolutely adore every single monogram Cathe makes – seriously, how stunning is her work!! – and would be so grateful to add a little personalized sunshine in my life… maybe a wall decal for our new living room and of course new stationary to write you both a thank you note with!!

  32. Elizabeth KS says:
