Welcome to petalsuite, my little corner of the internet. I’m so happy you’re here!
I’m Jo, a twenty-something, creative-life-living, special-events-loving lady with a genuine and honest appreciation for all things beautiful, timeless, elegant, and sophisticated.
Why petalsuite?– First and foremost, I ADORE stationery. I hoarde blank journals and notebooks, always adding to my collection, and I’m obsessed with anything paper- invitations, personalized stationery, journals, envelopes… the list goes on. A stationery suite is a set, or organized collection, or series, of envelopes, stationery, and cards. Petals evoke thoughts of delicate and dainty little things. This is my own collection of pretty little things and thoughts- petalsuite.
I am an artist, designer, painter, creator, and calligrapher. My passion is paper and pretty details.
I am a member of the Rising Tide Society- founded by Creatives, for Creatives – The Rising Tide Society is an Educational + Inspirational Community designed to give small business owners the resources necessary to thrive. Through this, I have a network of creative entrepreneurs’ assistance and advice at my fingertips- and I can’t wait to tap into their expertise!
If you want to get to know a little more about me personally, head over to the blog, where I’ll be sharing more about myself outside of the projects and prettiness. You can also catch some behind-the-scenes of my projects and daily doings on Instagram Stories.
I’m also on Love Weddings Canada! I co-founded this online resource for Canadian Wedding Vendors with an event designer colleague of mine right here in Simcoe County! Take a look, and feel free to ask questions.
So time to enjoy the adventure- and please leave comments, or contact me directly, I’d love to hear from you!
Petalsuite is the innovation of Creative Director Jo MacIntosh. Jo has been an artist from a young age, finding particular talents in handlettering and painting. Born in the United Kingdom, and growing up in the heart of Washington DC, Jo has long been exposed to a wide range of cultures, styles, and protocol.
She got her start in the Special Events industry at age 20 at a luxury event décor studio in Washington DC, while pursuing a degree in Business Administration and Event Management. There she remained for over three years, progressing from a shift Artist and Personal Assistant, to the Art Director and Head of PR for a brand-new boutique décor firm that was birthed from the previous company. In the Fall of 2014, she transitioned to a prestigious and elite city club in Washington, with a membership comprised of former Presidents, Senators, Nobel Prize winners, authors and professors, where she coordinated Weddings and formal Banquets through the Catering Department.
The following year, she moved to Ontario with her husband and formed Petalsuite.
