on a little shop update...

new notebooks up in the shop!

For the last day-or-so, I've been busy stocking the shop with some new goodies! I have been working on coming up with new packaging ideas, and am quite happy with how these new notebooks looks all wrapped up. I like the idea of both stamping and handwriting the labels. It adds a bit of a unique touch. I'm sure you're all aware of this by now, but to me? Packaging is half the beauty of any item. I've actually been known to buy things just because I like the packaging. Seriously. It's like a sickeness. A beautiful, beautiful sickness.

I adore the cardstock that I used for the covers of these notebooks! Seriously, it had been sitting around for the last year, and every time I saw it I was all, "Eh, no. Too cute for this project. It is not worthy of this adorable paper." So, I'm glad I'm finally found some way to put it to use. (Now I just wish I had bought more!)

In any case, please stop by the shop and see the new and updated items, when you have a chance! There are several new magnet sets, notecards, and (hopefully, by the end of the day) some new eyeglass cozies, too. There is also a new sale section that I will be updating every month. Hurrah for sales! Here are a couple more photos of a couple new items:

Also, I wanted to let you know that I was absolutely blown away by the incredible feedback I received on my last post. It kept pouring in, and every single comment I read (and continue to read) was so heartfelt and encouraging. Thank you so, so much to everyone who shared a little piece of themselves and their own experience. You seriously inspire me. I'm feeling a lot more centered about the whole situation, and much more at peace.

And really? It is incredible to feel so understood and so encouraged. So, thank you. I would hug each and every one of you if it were humanly possible.


  1. What beautiful stationary you make!!

  2. Adorable! And I totally know what you mean about packaging. I'm the same when I'm giving gifts - I put so much effort into matching the bag, the tissue paper, the ribbons... it really is a beautiful sickness, haha.

  3. I have so much love for the new notebooks! Loooovely.

  4. I adore the things you make. I just recently started using the wallet I bought months ago on an everyday basis. I've gotten several compliments on it! =) Those notebooks are so pretty! My only fear is I wouldnt want to write in it.

  5. Your merchandise is gorgeous. I dabble in design and sewing and think what you do is incredible. I will be buying!
