This review is for all the cards I bought from Picking Violets. They are all great, beautiful, and well done. I will definitely recommend this shop to all!

About

Paper is my paint, scissors are my brush. Each card tells a story

Cards
Paper made by hands is so rich in color and texture it reminds me of flowers, birds and fabric. The first card I made was a shore bird, just two contrasting pieces of paper. The textures were so rich that the simple shape conveyed the beauty of one of nature's most stunning creatures.

As tiny as my pictures are, they all have a stance, a gesture, a context. My favorite card is of a little girl in a woolly read coat feeding crumbs to a bird. The way she holds her tiny white mitten in the air says so much.

Though I offer a certain design and deliver a card that looks just like its photo, every piece of paper is made fresh, every cut is made new for your card.

Toys
There is a magic in taking flat cloth and turning it into a chunky, soft, three dimensional toy. There is even more magic once someone make the toy their own, taking it on adventures, giving it a name and a home.

These toys are made for play. They are safe and sturdy. The unique designs, the colors and textures are their to spark your imagination.
