HI.

I'M ALAINA POLANDER. FUN FACT: I KEPT ALL OF MY NAMES AFTER GETTING MARRIED SO I’M NOW ANA ALAINA PALOMA HAFNER POLANDER (A MOUTH FULL).

I MET MY HUSBAND, KELLY POLANDER, IN SIXTH GRADE. WE WERE GOOD FRIENDS THROUGHOUT MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE. AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR SENIOR YEAR IN COLLEGE HE SAID “LET’S TRY THIS THING”. WE MARRIED IN 2017, AND WE’RE BUILDING OUR STORY EVERY DAY.

WE HAVE A PRECIOUS MUTT NAMED THEODORE ROOSEVELT (PICTURED BELOW) AND LIVE IN NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA.

KELLY DOES NOTHING BUT ENCOURAGE ME TO CHASE MY DREAMS, SO HERE WE ARE. HE WAS THE ONE TO PUSH ME INTO TAKING MY STATIONERY AND CALLIGRAPHY BUSINESS FULL TIME.

I GREW UP IN A CREATIVE, UNORTHODOX HOUSEHOLD. MY DAD IS A CUSTOM CABINET BUILDER AND MY MOM IS AN ARTIST. THEY TAUGHT ME THE LOVE OF WORKING WITH MY HANDS AND CREATING. I'VE ALWAYS HAD A LOVE FOR LETTERS. I PICKED UP A CALLIGRAPHY PEN AFTER A FRIEND’S SISTER ASKED ME TO ADDRESS HER WEDDING INVITATIONS AND FELL IN LOVE.

MY HOPE IS TO HELP TELL YOUR STORY THROUGH CUSTOM WATERCOLOR, CALLIGRAPHY AND WEDDING INVITATION DESIGN.

I’D LOVE TO GET TO KNOW YOU BETTER TOO. DROP ME A LINE ON MY CONTACT PAGE + LET'S COLLABORATE!
