I started my shop in 2010 after designing a small number of prints for a local holiday craft market. At the time I was working 9-5 as an in-house designer for a scrapbooking and stationery company. As I grew my product line and sales, I realized that this little seed of a business was something I wanted to pursue full-time. When my employer downsized our entire design department a few years later, I seized the opportunity by focusing all my energy and effort into developing my services and product line. I now happily work for myself, thanks to all the people and retailers like you who make a point of supporting independent makers!

I create all my designs from scratch and then source the printing and production using as many local sources as possible. I package every item by hand and spend most of my evenings folding cards, sleeving prints, stickering mugs and packing up wholesale orders. My daytime work hours are reserved for designing new product, fulfilling wedding stationery orders, freelance design projects for clients, and all the daily administration required to run a small business.

My husband, Aaron, is my 'Shipping + Receiving Department'. He takes care of shipping and customer service for all the non-wholesale orders.

Sol, our rescue cat, is the studio mascot and resident desk warmer.
