This is a nice journal that I want to keep forever. I loved Peter Pan story, and now I can have it with my memos. Thank you for the excellent job!

About

Creating paper vessels to hold your sweet stories.

Papermiel means paper honey. I aim to create various paper goods that can hold and carry peoples' stories, thoughts, sketches, and so on (which I like to think of as honey). Also, I like to imagine myself as a bee collecting nectar (inspirations & material) from hither and thither to create special products (honey or paper vessels to hold others' inspirations).

Sometime in my teens or perhaps even before, a sincere affection for all-things-paper burgeoned. Having had a pretty nomadic life (studied in over 8 schools, and currently living in my fourth country), I had a home on paper - writing and drawing on it, reading it, treasuring it and so on. I've grown to appreciate paper, paper goods, and its makers. My family and friends will be able to testify that I love to gift journals. It is definitely one of the ways I express affection.

Having been an avid fan of stationery, I have long wanted to take a step further to become a maker. The biggest nudge that helped me take that extra step to makership was relocating to a new country. In September of 2014, my husband's job brought us to the USA from Korea. Moving to a new place created a blanket of "quietness" around me, in which I was able to be bare honest about many things, especially what I wanted to pursue. Busy-ness subsided to create room for honesty and dreams. I realized that I wanted to create, art (as a verb), and share. And the medium I chose to do so is paper through Papermiel. Papermiel is a journey that I am on to create, art, and share.
