Hi! Thanks so much for visiting! I'm Lori, the owner and designer of Lily + Jude!  And we can't forget Waffles (we think he's a pekingese-dachshund), he's our executive motivator and company-keeper.


I started Lily + Jude in the spring of 2012 with an Etsy shop and have worked with clients all over the world. We started out with DIY printables and have since developed a passion for more than just the design of invitations. Stationery isn't my only passion. I'm a graphic designer – and over the last ten years I have designed anything and everything. Throw in a children's book or two and there you have it. I currently work for Midtown & Cary Living magazines and that keeps me pretty busy! Lily + Jude is my way of pursuing the projects that do not cross my day to day.

When I'm not working the day job or making new designs for the shop, I'm spending time with my family and friends, hitting the gym, trying new recipes (preferably ridiculously Southern), downing coffee, playing fetch, jamming out to 70s hits and obsessing over penguins.
