About Whimsy Spot
The natural world has held an interest for me my whole life. I grew up among the redwoods where there were constant encounters with blue jays, raccoons, deer and even the occasional coyote. In addition, my sister is an underwater photographer, and I grew up with her beautiful images of manta rays, nudibranchs, whales and all kinds of tropical fish. It has always seemed to me that not only do individual animals have their own personalities, but that they have, as a species, characteristics that could be expressed in an artistic way. I try to place animals into humorous situations that play off those characteristics. My greeting cards--with simple silhouettes of creatures and flora in the wild that already exhibit magnificent color variations--are expressed in the beautiful patterns of paper.
Alexa Shoemaker Brooks
Owner, Designer, Paper Fiend
Hello! You can usually find me ogling vintage typography, sneaking sour gummy candies, or color-coding my fine paper collection. I discovered a passion for paper art in high school and haven't been without an X-acto knife since.
Whimsy Spot offers a unique, handmade experience that feels playful, carefully crafted, and ultimately whimsical. We make everything from small gift tags to sets of greeting cards to larger collages. Every item is created with high quality papers and adhesive—no glue gun and construction paper here!! Every paper is selected specifically for its color, pattern, and texture. Whimsy Spot is perfect for gift giving—but beware, many customers have decided to keep their gifts for themselves!
I am more than happy to take requests and make custom orders. Due to the uniqueness of handmade papers, some patterns and/or colors can become unavailable. I can usually find a similar color in stock or find another at an additional charge.
