About

Paper Meets Fabric...and then along came Vintage & Weddings

My nostalgia for paper goods, trimmings, and vintage items goes far back. Maybe it was all the rummaging through my grandmother's old things as a kid or those early morning treks to flea markets with my father that got me hooked, I really can't say. All I know is I'm hooked!

Early in my career, I went on to work at an interior design showroom and eventually went on to study decorative arts history at Parsons School of Design. I had already earned my bachelor of fine arts degree in college so the progression to studying the history of decorative arts opened up a new world of possibilities for me. Historical influences from centuries past fascinate me!

And I've always been a "card person," meaning I love sending them, and I love receiving them. After years of collecting fabrics along with beautiful papers and cards, the two passions combined into one artistic endeavor, and Blue Thistle Paperie was born. But it didn't stop there...

By now you can probably tell that I'm wild about color and pattern! I love seeing how colors react to one another depending upon their surroundings and context. And I find that when fabric and paper come together in my hands, I have a tendency to treat them as miniature interior design projects, finding just the right trim or embellishment to really make the colors in a card pop.

Today, I have the pleasure of designing greeting cards, along with a few new ventures ~ blogging, wedding style, and vintage in addition to working in the home furnishings industry, where boatloads of style can be found around most every corner.

My customers can be assured that I take great care in selecting the perfect materials and colors for every item I create, whether constructed from paper, fabric, or a combination of the two. I try to use recycled, sustainable, or repurposed materials in crafting my items whenever possible. And in this age of technology, gadgets, and impersonal texting, I still believe in the enduring power of a hand-written note!

Welcome and thank you for shopping with Blue Thistle Paperie! My cards are designed to warm the heart and nourish the soul. I hope to create a visual and tactile experience for the recipients of my greeting cards and put a lot of care into my handmade cards in particular, which can be saved as keepsakes and even framed.
