Nice to Meet You

Hi, my name is Jen. Thank you for stopping by my personal blog, Darling Notes. This blog is a place for me to write short notes about what I love and what inspires me. You can also catch up with me over at The Finer Things (the official blog of, which I write as part of my day job.

I'm an east-coast girl at heart -- born in Philadelphia and lived in the suburbs until I was 10. My family and I lived in Michigan until I graduated college in 2006 with a degree in art, when I moved back to the east-coast to live with my (now) husband. We've recently moved to Chicago, and I'm absolutely loving life in this city -- it's amazing! Stationery and nice paper, crafts, graphic design, the beach, Boston Terriers, ruffles and coffee are a few of the things I love (besides the Mr., of course!)

I work from home as a Graphic Design & Social Media Consultant, currently doing work for I blog, design, and get to surf Twitter, Facebook and the web all day. Fun, right? I'm a lucky girl!

If you'd like to contact me for guest blogging opportunities, giveaway opportunities or stationery design, please visit my contact page {here}.

Thanks again for stopping by!
