Paper fun with vintage flair!

I live on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas, where we sip sweet tea and mint juleps while listening to the song of the cicadas and the cooing of the mourning doves. The sky is big and the sun streams into my work area where Frank Sinatra croons and Glenn Miller swings. I am lucky enough to live near a lake where I can go kayaking or sit on the dock and enjoy the view. I love to travel but I have found my forever home here in the heart of Texas. And it's true what they say, the stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas! ☆☆☆

I am a multitalented self taught artist in the book arts, calligraphy, painting, leatherwork, and printmaking. I love all kinds of journal making and some time ago I started offering ephemera and paper bits for your to embellish your own journals with. I hand carve stamps, dye, and create digital works with vintage flair for you to enjoy.

I have been a journal maker and leather worker for years and my work has been featured on Design*Sponge, the Nate Berkus show, and the Huffington Post.
