Coleen and I started our little greeting card making empire, PaperFreckles in 2009 initially creating custom invitations for brides and logos for small businesses. What we eventually discovered was we did NOT enjoy creating custom invitations for brides and logos for small businesses. What we DID enjoy was laughter and silliness. So, seeing as how I’ve never fully matured into a functional adult* we thought we’d use my sarcastic, mid-brow** humor and illustrations and Coleen’s eye for detail to create snarky, funny greeting cards to poke fun at all of life’s little complexities. Our inspiration comes from the “way too serious” world around us, our silly day-to-day banter and sometimes way, way too much coffee.

Even when we’re not creating greeting cards that are sometimes barely socially acceptable, we spend time being creative in the kitchen & love to dote on our 350 pounds of furry children – Grace, an Akita, and Jude & Max, our rescue Great Pyrenees.

* Seriously, who has?!

** We totally made that word up.
