my little shop (21)

shop update + make things happen

/ Mon, December 27, 2010


Hello there. Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend. Mine was quite relaxing (I napped a lot!) and somewhat productive, too.

I was able to squeeze in a little shop update over the break. New to my shop are joe & ann matchbook notepads (characters from the wonderful classic, Roman Holiday), and these pretty pencils, which are available for pre-order.

Now that one of the biggest holidays of the year is out of the way, am excited to get through this last week of December and start 2011. Looking forward to new travels (I have my eye on the east coast...during summer...sans blizzards), and new ideas and goals for my budding paper shop.

personalized pencils

/ Tue, December 21, 2010


Just received these pencils in the mail last week, and they are so much fun. I love that they also add pops of color to my desk, and remind me of summer.

Now I just need a pencil sharpener...

(P.S. I'm also including one in every order from the shop, while supplies last. Which color do you fancy?)

a little shop update

/ Sun, October 31, 2010


Hi! I hope everyone's on a sugar high and enjoying their Halloween weekend.

I just wanted to drop in to announce a little shop update. (It's about time, yeah?!)

Trois and breakfast club are now available for purchase. Yay!

new in the shop: classic couples

/ Sat, July 31, 2010


As promised, these matchbook notepads are now in the shop and are available in very limited quantities (at the moment) due to my short supply of found envelopes. 

Each set comes with two notebooks filled with 30 perforated sheets of hand-cut and randomly selected security envelope patterns. They fit perfectly in your hand and can be used to jot down names, notes, or numbers. You can even get creative with them! (I have a small obsession with making stickers lately.)

And I named these after some of my favorite on-screen couples. Can you guess what classic movies they're from?

shop sneak peak: matchbooks!

/ Fri, July 9, 2010


So, remember these pretty security envelopes I raved about? I've been playing and making fun things with them, and my latest project is matchbook notepads. Each little booklet is filled with hand-cut sheets from envelopes in all sorts of patterns, and no two books are alike. That's my favorite part.

I'm still working out the details to these puppies, but I hope to have some in the shop by the end of the month.

happy june + shop updates!

/ Tue, June 1, 2010


Can you believe it's June already?! 2010 is almost half over...

But a new month welcomes some new items in my shop! Inspired by my much anticipated trip to Australia this summer, these bon voyage postcards come in three designs: happy sailing, happy landing, and happy trails.

Just in time to bring along on those summer trips!

papers + patterns

/ Sun, May 23, 2010


I've been cutting and sorting a lot of envelopes with security patterns this weekend. So many different  patterns, textures, and color variations for something that's seemingly mundane and overlooked. And once they're cut and sorted, they don't look like they were envelopes to begin with; they've transcended to become something more.

I have some fun plans for these pretty papers, including projects for the shop. Stay tuned...

a little announcement!

/ Mon, May 3, 2010


After a year of daydreaming and planning, a couple months of designing and crafting, and the last few days of jittery nerves, I have finally opened my Etsy shop!

The shop carries handmade paper goods, fusing modern aesthetics with my love of vintage charm. My focus is on notebooks and albums at the moment, and there are currently four, fun styles available for purchase. Hooray to that!

a mini photo shoot

/ Sun, April 4, 2010


I finally got a chance to put together a mini photo shoot today of the projects I've been working on (mentioned a few weeks back). Above are some sneak peaks of the final photos.

I haven't picked up my camera to do artistic photography for a while now, so this shoot definitely brought back all the giddiness I used to get when venturing about with my photo friends. It's also my first time doing product photography, so quite a bit of crouching had to be done to frame the shots right. In the end, I'm fairly happy with how everything turned out.

Will share more so stay tuned!

(A random, but fitting, thought: I walked into a vintage shop yesterday located on Antique Row in Tacoma. They were having a little egg hunt. I found an egg within the first 15 seconds after stepping into the shop, and walked out 30 minutes later with only that egg. Talk about beginner's luck.)

Well, on that note, Happy Easter!
