About

About JessicaHi, I’m Jessica! I live in the St. Louis metro area and I love paper, color, and patterns! I was never one of those girls who knew exactly who she wanted to be or what she wanted to do when she grew up. In school, I studied many different subjects ranging from art to history to science to French.  Ultimately I earned a degree in psychology, but began scrapbooking and handcrafting invitations for my friends as a hobby. After my hobby grew into an obsession, I decided to take a leap of faith and this business was born.

In my free time, I like to appreciate what I believe are the good things in life: chocolate, traveling, music, a nice glass of wine, laughing, dancing, and spending time with family and friends. I love road trips, hiking, and capturing interesting images through a camera lens. I’m a details person. Take me to a book store and I may never leave. I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, French music, and old movies.


But who is Louise, you ask?  I like to think of Louise (my middle name) as my alter ego. My inner Parisienne. The designs here at La Rue Louise are inspired by a Parisian personality: effortlessly elegant but slightly offbeat, feminine but not frilly, and able to combine both classic and modern elements seamlessly.

In Paris you won’t find many people shopping for a year’s worth of groceries at a huge warehouse club. Instead, you will probably find them visiting their local farmer’s market daily, carefully selecting fresh, high quality ingredients to savor during that evening’s meal. We take that same approach with our stationery by combining beautiful design with great paper and by treating clients not just as customers, but also as friends. In today’s fast-paced digital age, we believe in the importance of celebrating all of life’s moments, both large and small.

 

"Loved the baby shower invitations she designed for me. I told her what I (kinda) wanted and she brought it to life! She was great to work with and I will definitely use her again."
