Keeping Alive the Art

My first page of this little shop started out as a kiddo whose love language was words, journals, snail mail, and ink pens. Today, what do ya know, those very things are still my happies!
That first page flipped over and over as the years went by and I developed a greater love for writing! My journal scribbling and letter writing never stopped and only gave me a greater desire to keep this art alive and share it with others!

I began The Jot Keeper as an outlet to share my creativity with others.

Coffee staining paper was an art that I discovered after trying out many crafty ideas over the course of my teenage years, it was such a unique craft and definitely stuck with me and now is the heart and soul of my shop! I've always loved how old paper looks from a glance, feels to my touch, and smells to my senses, so by coffee staining brand new paper I get to pretend I've waited years for my paper to show the wear and tear when in all actuality I haven't waited near that long, and you haven't either when it arrives in your mailbox. . .kinda fun right?

Modern Calligraphy is my newest love and pursuit, and my dream of where I want to take this shop.

The Jot Keeper is an endeavor that thrives in encouraging the art of the handwritten and the papery, so from envelopes, to stationery, to journals, we're talking your language!

Welcome to this little corner of simple beauty, it's a pretty happy place, care to stay a while?
