family portrait for paperista

antoinette Inslee By Design paperista pregnancy portrait The Sketch Book

A sketch for my friend Antoinette, the lovely owner of fabulous Minneapolis based paper shop, Paperista. She was one of my first buyers at the National Stationery Show a few years back and I admire her taste so much. Over the last few years she shared with me that she and her husband hoped to have children so I was beyond excited for her when she told me this  fall she was finally expecting twin boys and that she was going to need an Inslee for the nursery!

Antoinette and I came up with this sketch featuring her family waiting for the babies to arrive. I loved the sweet pose she asked for and the subtle hint of louboutin red on her shoe.
