An invitation for my Princess, Ballerina, Fairy birthday girl.

A few days ago my daughter got an invitation for her party in the mail, but I didn’t send it. Paper Culture did.

As you may know, I recently started writing the “Inspired” blog for Paper Culture. Before I started my job, I did some research — I looked at the site. I checked out the assortment of cards and designs that were available. But I hadn’t really experienced Paper Culture until now. My daughter is turning four next week and I am making, as my Aunt Aleen from NJ would say, a party for her.

Kali Rocha and Catherine Bell on Paper Culture Stationery

Celebrity stationery picks

Kali Rocha’s role as the flight attendant who had a humorous fight with Ben Stiller‘s character at the airport in the 2000 hit comedy Meet The Parents has a special place in my heart: it was that year that I brought my now husband home to meet my parents for the first time. That movie provided perspective to make an otherwise very stressful experience a very funny one. Years later, I was happy to see Rocha play the resident surgeon, Dr. Sydney Heron, at Seattle Grace Hospital in one of favorite shows, Grey’s Anatomy.
