How Inviting! was founded in 2008. After graduating from The Ohio State University, I found myself working for a large financial institution. While I enjoyed working at the bank, (I met my husband there after all) it just wasn't something that I could be passionate about.
I remember while I was planning for my own wedding I had a hard time finding wedding invitations that were exactly what I wanted, but still within my budget. While the invitations that I ended up choosing were beautiful, I couldn't help but think...well, I could have done this! With the encouragement of my husband and family, I started creating wedding invitations and stationery for friends while still working my full-time job. I loved this chance to be creative every day!
When my daughter was born I decided to take some time off from the corporate world and stay at home with her. I also used this opportunity to start a business where I could be creative and truly passionate about my work. Thus, How Inviting! was born. It has been an amazing experience with new rewards every day! Even though my daughter is now in school full-time, I continue to expand the business and find new growth opportunities.
