MY STORY:

I've been passionate about stationery since I was five years old. Hello Kitty, Lisa Frank, David & Goliath: those were my obsessions. By the time I was 16, I had decided that one day I would create my own stationery collection. I made a list on a piece of paper of all the items I would one day create & stashed it away in a notebook. I completely forgot all about it.

It was all there, notebooks, folders, journals, coloring books, greeting cards, playing cards etc. The spark had been reignited and I knew this is what I was meant to do. I enrolled in Graphic Design courses at the local community college & got a certificate in design. The rest is history.
THE FACTS:

Mariposa Dew, based in Salem, MA, was founded in 2009 by graphic designer Wendy Carmona-Florencio. This company was born out of a love for paper, design, business and writing. Wendy grew up fascinated by stationery companies, in particular Lisa Frank, Hello Kitty & David & Goliath, & always knew she would design her own line of paper goods.
MY MISSION:

To create distinct & stunning quality paper products that promote a lifestyle of celebration, joy, love, & faith. By buying from Mariposa Dew you are supporting a small business dedicated to conservation, humanitarianism and refining the delightful craft of the handwritten note.
MY CAUSE:

I also have a heart for missions. A portion of all online sales is donated to Life Outreach International. Millions of hurting, desperate people all over the world have experienced the compassion and provision of Jesus Christ through various humanitarian relief programs sponsored by LIFE Outreach International. Please visit their website: www.lifetoday.org.

In addition to my stationery work, I am also a professional graphic designer specializing in branding for niche start ups (logos, business cards, packaging, ID packages, etc.). Please visit WCFlo to view my portfolio & contact me about collaborating on your next creative project.
JUST IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERing:

1. I really believe in fairies.

2. Chocolate & marshmallows can turn my bad day into a great day.

3. My original career choice was to be an archeologist, but I'm afraid of spiders so I gave that idea up.

4. Nail polish on my toes is like a gift that keeps on giving.

5. If I don't live by the ocean, I swear I'll die.

6. I've always wanted to be a singer, but I can't sing. :/

7. My bucket list includes jumping out of an airplane, visiting Machu Pichu, being interviewed by someone very famous, learning to sail, & a bunch of other things that I refuse to not experience before the good Lord calls me home.
