About

A Paper Enthusiast's Dream Comes True

I started One Day Long Ago in December 2012 (a transformation of my Spread-A-Smile Creations shop) with a vision of eventually living up to my shop's slogan, "A Wonderland for Paper Enthusiasts". Gradually, with the help & support of many wonderful guests and customers here on Etsy, One Day Long Ago is growing and my selections of new, unique paper products & fun findings continue to expand.

My shop's name reflects the mainly, vintage & Victorian look of the products I carry. It is always my hope that my selections will help my customer's express their own creativity and bring them a bit of joy in the process.

My own gift tags and cards are offered throughout the shop as well but I'm afraid I'm fairly slow at producing these items as I've had Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 20 years. Better slow than never I say!

I am a paper enthusiast (fanatic), artist/crafter and photographer. I've loved paper products ever since I can remember; I saved up all my quarters in the 1970's as a child to buy those nice Hallmark stationary sets so I could write letters to my pen pals all over the world. I am also attracted to everything vintage and I love to play with paper, inks and embellishments as well as photograph nature subjects.

I hope those of you who are paper & embellishment nuts will enjoy your look around as I continue to build the shop. I carefully research and pick out what I offer in the shop and do quite a bit of importing as well as supporting USA businesses to bring unique, hard-to-find goodies to One Day Long Ago. Please feel free to make suggestions and requests so I may better serve your creative needs in the future.

I'm also addicted to collecting paper ephemera and write letters the old fashioned way - sealed with a wax seal of course! My longtime love for fine writing papers, inks & writing instruments is why you will see this area of the shop expand in the future. I am truly scared to see that many younger kids nowadays are not even being taught how to write cursive! I believe that preserving handwriting as an art & hobby is not simply a love for nostalgia but a vital way to preserve human history. How many tweets, texts & emails did you save from last week? :)

Also, I continually make PAPER ART TREASURIES featuring Etsy crafters/artists. The latest treasuries are listed on my profile page. Enjoy!
