Collage art designer uses high quality recycled paper to inspire creativity

My name is Joy Boardman. I am a massage therapist, collage maker, and a world traveler.
I am a bohemian rapscallion. I believe in self-expression and preserving the environment. I like collage because it's a form of creative recycling/ upcycling :)

you can order one of my beautiful cards@:
and you can even be my friend with benefits on facebook and twitter- you'll be the first to know about sales and new cards!

Why pick my cards?
Well, because they are artsy and unique! You can feel good about helping an artisan.

Also, I print them on recycled card stock. Because saving the planet is a big deal for me and I try to recycle as often as I can so I want you to be able to participate in that. After all, collage is a kind of recycling in itself. Or, um, upcycling is that the new term?

And another thing: My cards are blank. That is so that you can have a lot of space to write what you want to write and you don't have to worry about there being anything cheesy written in the inside. Don't you hate that? Then you have to cross it out.... so mine are blank. Which makes them perfect for any occasion at all!

Why Cards?
I've chosen to make my collages into notecards because I think that it's very important to keep in touch with those close to us. My mom writes letters every day and her mailbox is always full. She says, "You write letters, you get letters."

I am a huge fan of personal mail. I mean really, what means more? A bunch of people wishing you happy birthday on Facebook or a handwritten, handpicked card in your mailbox? Personal mail rocks because it makes life fun and joyful.

Background & Method
I've been making collages since I was very little. I love scissors and I love collecting images. I have a huge, HUMONGOUS box of magazine images.

I reach in and grab a handful every day and spend about an hour going through them and seeing if any are inspired to go together that day. Then I whip out my trusty glue stick and stick 'em together.

I love that collages are all unique. The images could go together in about a billion different ways.

I love holistic living, beautiful things, and hand-written communication. I live in Staunton, Virginia in the lovely and gorgeous Shenandoah Valley.


Believe that you can make someone's day 1,000 times better.
Remember that everyone needs to know they aren't alone on this planet.

Please enjoy my artwork and send it off with love. Please send me feedback: the look on your friend's face , the excited phone call you got, or the card you received in return.

Thank you!

Returns and exchanges
If the item you purchased in no way resembles what was described, I will refund your money after a convo and the opportunity to remedy the situation.
I am more than happy to work with you if you're not satisfied.
I prefer to deal with Pay-Pal (because it's awesome and easy and I use it myself when I'm buying stuff online).
I am a poor girl so I can't send your stuff in any super expensive way. It won't take forever but it also won't arrive the very next day.
My only exceptions are for special occasions. If you contact me and absolutely have to have it right away then I can totally see what I can do.

I am happy to ship outside the US - please allow extra time for out-of-country shipping. There have been many cases of packages taking weeks and weeks to arrive...and sometimes mere days. Shipping out of country is unpredictable at best so please keep that in mind when waiting for your order to arrive...I'm sending it out promptly but once I send it we're at the mercy of the postal system....
Additional policies and FAQs
My collages can absolutely be framed. They will look as excellent straight out of the envelope as they do on the wall.
