About

I strive to be a younger, better looking and insider trading-free Martha Stewart.

I love paper, weddings, party planning, fashion, obsessing over small details and stripes.

I believe that good fonts, like good clothes, are an investment and have spent more money on a font package than a new pair of designer jeans. I get equal use and enjoyment out of both.

The LITTLE BLACK shop is several years in the making, finally giving an online presence to my boutique stationery studio, LITTLE BLACK PRESS (LBP).

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved paper. I got my one and only failing grade (a D-) in the 6th grade on a travel brochure for Trinidad and Tobago (in honor of that year’s summer Olympics) because I so pre-occupied with making it look pretty that I forgot to include…

I got my one and only failing grade (a D-) in the 6th grade on a travel brochure for Trinidad and Tobago (in honor of that year’s summer Olympics) because I so pre-occupied with making it look pretty that I forgot to include some of the information the teacher was looking for. Sorry, but sparkly glitter glue and coordinating construction paper were a little higher on my list of priorities than some key points. One year later, I was tea-staining a paper about the Titanic to give it an authentic look. 9th grade biology project? Can’t remember the topic, but I do know I got extra points for making my poster aesthetically pleasing by choosing to design with complementary colors blue and orange (and this was long before I knew anything about color theory). When I went to college in Beacon Hill (Boston) for Fashion Merchandising and Design, I spent more time shopping in Paper Source than I did on Newbury Street.
