As Head of Content for an organisation and brand with many branches - workshops, classes, digital resources, publishing and stationery, no day is the same for this busy lady. With research, writing, designing and teaching on her daily schedule, we wondered if Sarah ever adhered to her own advice, what her approach to work was, and ultimately, how she takes time out.

Confessions of a Stationery Addict — Arley-Rose Torsone | Colorado

Arley-Rose is a letterer, designer and illustrator. Together with her wife, Morgan, they own Ladyfingers Letterpress, a stationery brand, studio and recent bricks-and-mortar store located in Colorado Springs.

Morgan moved in and opened a silkscreen print shop, and after a few years working side by side, they found themselves in need of a wedding invitation.
