    About Nowvember

    Sales 1,869
    On Etsy since 2008

    Adorable yet acerbic paper goods.

    Nowvember is handmade on my sofa, my kitchen table, my cluttered desk, and any other horizontal surface I can find. I package orders before I leave for work in the morning, and often embroider until the wee hours after I come home at night. My designs are generally born out of anything that makes me chuckle, though I have a special fondness for pairing acerbic humor with adorable kitties and unicorns.

    I've been making my own stationery since I first heard of "pen pals," and this shop is the natural evolution of a lifelong love of paper goods. My processes are self-taught and, I'll admit, a little antiquated. I hand-cut all of my stickers and appliques and embroider all of my cards and notebooks by hand. My poor boyfriend is always trying to teach me to use Photoshop. Also, he always has bits of embroidery floss in his beard. Somebody should give him a medal.
