It is with much pride and excitement that I am able to launch Ernie and Irene today. Ernie and Irene has been alive in daydreams for the past, oh, three years or so, and today marks the day that the dream becomes a reality. I cannot wait for you all to experience it.
My name is Holly Guertin. I graduated in 2011 from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Fibers (I know, best college experience ever ). Right after graduation, I married my high school sweetheart, Daniel, and started my first job at Lilly Pulitzer as a Print Designer (yep, I know, best job ever ). During my career, I've worked with companies like Verily Magazine, Style Me Pretty, and Martha Stewart Weddings. And now, Ernie and Irene.
Okay, all the business is done. What you really need to know is that I love sheep. I love wool. I love cotton. And I love to work with my hands. Ernie and Irene is the embodiment of all of those things and I hope you will check out the Shop page to see my work and - even more - I hope you'll find that your home or space needs a little bit of that love as well. Right now, every piece is made to order. After I get into the swing of things, though, I hope to create products that you can buy directly. For now, you can fill out the order forms in the Shop and request any kind of customization or specifics you want!
Here on this blog, I will share anything and everything that inspires me and interesting things that are going on in my little life. Before being an artist and designer, I am first and foremost a Catholic. I love my faith and love my God with my whole being. I may share inspiring, faithful inspiration on here as well.
As I said earlier, I am so, so excited for Ernie and Irene. I can't wait to get to know you all and I hope you enjoy! Don't be a stranger. I'll be adding new pieces as often as I can!
