I love stationery! I've always loved stationery. When I was little, I would fold 8×10 sheets of copy paper in half to make cards for my mom and dad. I'd staple random pieces of paper together so I'd have my own journals & sketch books. I collected stamps, colored every page in all my coloring books, & counted down the days to go school supply shopping like most kids did to Christmas. Everything I offer is either handmade by me or designed by me: from greeting cards & art prints, to notepads & journals, to coloring books & crayons! I've also added a small bit of flair to my business with the addition of pins, buttons, patches, & stickers! My favorite thing though… my original art in thrifted & up-cycled, fun & colorful frames. My art has always had a certain since of humor to it… even when I was told to be doing "more serious/deep" art while in college. I started my business shortly after a rough patch in my mid/late twenties. Someone I looked up to challenged me to put all my energy into something outside of other people, to build something that would bring me joy. The thing that took me awhile to realize… I built a business rooted in the sending & receiving of cards and that still brings joy to others. I love that.
