Beating Depression and Anxiety Through Crafting

Why, hello. Thanks for checking us out!

We're a husband and wife team with a passion for creating and working with our hands. I design and hand craft all the greeting cards/stationery, prints, and accessories while my husband, Doug, creates all the wood decor.

Ever since I was a kid, I've always loved being creative. I remember being so excited as a 6-year old when I discovered Martha Stewart's TV show. I would even decline playing with the other kids outside so I could watch it. I was inspired and determined I'd grow up to be just like her.

I eventually went to culinary school but quickly realized it wasn't the industry I wanted to be in (it sure comes in handy at home, though). I ended up working 9-5 jobs in the corporate world but had several hobbies to satiate my need to be creative - paper crafting, sewing, soap and candle-making, you name it!

Over the years, I started suffering from depression, anxiety, and was ultimately diagnosed with PTSD and panic disorder. For those who have experienced depression, you know how absolutely difficult it is to even get out of bed sometimes. However, for me, I've found that being creative was the only thing I was willing to get out of bed for.

I was placed on medical leave and during then, I had so much time to be creative and absolutely loved it. I would make anywhere from 10-25 handmade cards each day. Not wanting to put the cards to waste, my husband and I sent them to our friends and family. Everyone raved about how beautiful the cards were and strongly encouraged us to put them on Etsy along with Doug's gorgeous woodwork.

If you're reading this, thank you. What started out as a casual hobby, turned into a business neither of us expected. Crafting and creating things are so therapeutic and we absolutely love sharing our craft with you!

Frequently asked questions
Would you be able to write in the card and mail it for me?

Absolutely! Just mark the card as a gift and write your gift message. We’ll hand write it inside the card and mail it to the recipient.

When will I get my order?

Most orders are shipped the following business day. Depending on the size and scope, custom orders take anywhere from two to five business days to complete.

We ship via:
- USPS First Class Mail (3-5 business days)
- USPS Priority Mail (1-3 business days)
- USPS Priority Mail International (typically 2-4 weeks)

International orders may take longer depending on how long it takes to clear customs. We’ve seen packages delivered in less than two weeks while some have taken up to six weeks.

Can I get a card or envelope in a different color?

Please send us a message before you order and we will do our best to make it happen. Most requests are doable and won’t cost anything extra.

How many cards come in a set?

Most of our designs are available for purchase as a single card or in sets of 5 and 10.

The listings will be clearly marked as such but please read the description to make sure you are purchasing the correct quantity.

Why are your cards so much more expensive than the other sellers on Etsy?

Our cards are handcrafted using only premium materials. With the exception of our printed and printable cards, all are made entirely by hand without the aid of a computer.

We use 100 lb recycled kraft and 110 lb white cardstock as well as 140 lb artist quality cold press watercolor paper, archival inks, and professional watercolor pigments.

Each set is carefully cut, stamped, embossed, or hand painted and takes several hours to make from start to finish. The result is a truly high quality product that is well worth the price.
