About

Living and Loving in the Desert Inspires My Original Designs

Its a "wild, wild world" out here in Big Bend.
All handmade by me, here in west Texas.
Here's my process:
All my subjects are wild - flora and fauna.
I hike for them.
Take the photo.
Graphic designs - if inspired be.
Print out the photo - print again and again until all is "right".
Glue layer - press - and glue some more.
Cut down to size with my handy xacto knife and metal ruler.
Make all the packaging that I especially design for each order.
Cross my fingers - hoping that your package arrives safe and sound and meets all your expectations . . . and here's more about me:

I reside in the Big Bend desert region of Texas. It is a great inspiration for my photography and graphic design work. The desert landscape and its inhabitants can be so unassuming, but in close inspection and reflection it is all about endurance, perseverance, a quieter stoic beauty.

My other great inspiration are my children. Every day with them is a humbling one; precious moments to recognize how much more there is to love and learn.

My line of paperworks emerged from
::: a great love for paper as a medium of expression,
::: an interest for good old-fashion correspondence,
::: reflections on the impact of great literature on my life,
::: and a deeply sentimental spirit.

It brings me incredible joy to share and hopefully ignite the love of the desert!

I cannot thank you enough for perusing my wares!
What do I do? Spreading our desert love one handmade creation at a time . . .
I enjoy life with my little ones. A lot of desert adventures and I am constantly taking a slew of pictures of them and our amazing desert surroundings. I started playing with all the amazing photos of my children (so many I could wallpaper a house!). Putting them together in fun ways for greeting cards for all sorts of occasions. This interest parlayed over to all the nature images that I had under my belt and I am finally ready to share and hopefully inspire others to take a closer look at our deserts. Please enjoy!

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Handmade stationary is so very personal and I sure do want to fulfill your expectations.
This is an original handmade creation by me. I work on a budget, but I use quality materials, so there is a lot of my toiling through the night. Envelopes are cut and glued from quality kraft paper. I like the thickness of postcards printed on photo paper, on my modest printer, and glued on quality thick cardstock. I glue and scrap and trim all postcards and greeting cards, so please be aware of minor differences due to my handmade process.

I do promise to deliver a quality item, free from smudges or other damage.
If you do happen to receive an item with a minor problem, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Payment
I get to custom makin' as soon as your payment goes through.
Please contact me if you're having a problem with your payment. If you place an order without payment, I have to pay Etsy fees for something that didn't sell.

I will do everything I can, but if payment hasn't gone through in 3 days, I reserve the right to cancel your order. So, please make contact ASAP and I will try my best to work with you.
Shipping
--- Usually (1-3) business days to ship out. Everything is made to order and I try to ship as soon as possible, but I live on a ranch over an hour from town, so please be patient with my life. I will notify you as soon as your package is on its way.

--- PLEASE make sure you have the same address in Etsy and in PayPal. We will always default to the PayPal address, and can't be responsible if that is not correct.
Additional policies and FAQs
Every order is custom - stationary is personal and special - for special moments, for special thoughts, etc.
I also do wholesale - it's all about spreading the desert love.
