I love paper and I love puttering. It is fun to come up with new designs and see them come to life. Always trying to work with new materials and create a card that will inspire someone to put pen to paper.

I have two main correspondence influences. The first was my maternal grandfather (Australian). He would write his letters on onion paper ( I LOVE ONION PAPER). And he would write with a fountain pen.

Succinct yet sincere, he would dispense advice and in turn his love. His typewriter- an Underwood- is currently "on loan" to me and is the one I use on several cards in this shop.

Armed with a fountain pen, some coveted onion paper, a typewriter and the cards I make, I too enjoy sending letters and cards. As said in my tag line " Just Write Stuff"!
