Each card is beautiful! It is going to be hard to write in them and give them away!

I purchased these for Christmas gifts for my friends - needless to say, they loved them! The card stock is wonderfully thick.

I just wanted to send a short note to thank you for your service and your product. The photograph is beautiful and a perfect gift for my oldest daughter's art wall. The care you put into the packaging and creation is palpable. One of my daughters said when she saw my order...its like you got a present mom. Keep doing what you are doing.

About

I'd say that.

My cheeky minis:

Quite simply, I wanted to make cards with words that would actually come out of my mouth.

I wanted these cards to be simply and beautifully designed and printed on quality paper with quality inks. These cards are meant to be instant pick-me-ups, both in terms of the messages they convey and the way that they look and feel in your hands.

In a way, I wanted to create cards that would do the same work as a giant bear hug, a knowing nod, or a cheeky smile: gestures that are simple yet intentional; gestures that are not elaborate or overdone but are nonetheless profound and heartfelt.

So yeah. I'd say that.

My moody blooms for mental health:

I started taking photographs of "moody blooms" to quell the pressure that would rise up in my chest that I wasn't "enough." Using blooms from a local flower shop (http://www.bloomsandflora.com/) and photographing them in community, these blooms help me slow down and create for the sake of creating.

And because I'm passionate about mental health, a portion of proceeds from every sale from this shop will go toward programming that believes in the vital role of art and community-making in addressing mental health struggles. Specifically, funds will be donated to a charity that fosters the creation of art for the purposes of mental well-being, or will be put toward a project I have in the works called Art Not Shame (www.artnotshame.org). Stay tuned for updates!

Thanks for stopping in!

***In honour of Bell Let's Talk Day, 100% of proceeds will be donated or go toward Art Not Shame from Jan. 25th through Feb. 15th!
