About

Life is a collage...

Welcome to my world of unique journals, Fairy Art and wedding paper whimsies! Discovering how to make a digital collage was a eureka moment for me. I had been dabbling in paper collage, but found I was loath to part with any I made due to the precious nature of the components: all the wonderful phrases from old books and bits of old letters, not to mention old photos. I simply could not bring myself to destroy these ephemeral ties to the past. Learning how to collect all these bits and pieces and gather them together in Photoshop felt like a miracle! When I discovered brushes in Photoshop, I thought I would cry.

Using my extensive collection of 19th century fashion plates, scans from old, old letters, books and periodicals, I love to create new pictures from compilations of old ones. If it isn't obvious from looking at my shop, my passion lies with the novels of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters and anything that feels lovely and feminine and pretty and pastel! I also collect old tin type photos and cabinet photos of Civil War era children.

I am adding a new line of paper wedding whimsies. Look for vow books, save the date cards and bridal shower favors as I add them to the shop. I hope to capture the magic of a garden wedding in all of my creations.

Right now, I am addicted to the vintage photographs of children mentioned above and love depicting them as fairies "found" and preserved in the "Naturalist's" library. Each fairy comes with their own unique story. I am also currently creating many one of a kind items in mixed media using paper, thread, metal bits, charms and rhinestones. These items are all one of a kind and will come and go, so please visit often if you are interested.

    My first love was ... pink. I branched out to pale green, ecru and french blue. My second love was books. My third love was crinolines. Unfortunately, I was born in the wrong century. So, I have combined my love of all three here in my shop.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

I will gift wrap for free when requested. This means I will wrap the item in question in tissue paper (no box) and tie with either a ribbon or string depending on the style. I can also include a gift enclosure with message if one is requested.

Custom and personalized orders

I will be happy to add personalization to my journals. Depending on the journal, this means I will place the requested verbiage or name where I think it works best. Of course, I will respond to conversations and work with all customers. Personalization is not deemed to be extra except when the quantity exceeds one item. Personalization of party favors or large quantity orders will incur an extra charge.

Length of time for constructions

Handmade journals take up to 15 business days to construct. I work full time - 40+ hours a week and the journals are primarily constructed on the weekends.

Cards and tags usually take no more than 5 -7 days to produce and send via USPS. I try to do them as soon as possible. I print and cut these as they are ordered. Everything is hand cut.
