lovely afternoon

the sun is shining through my window, and the leaves are beginning to get crinkly and brown..the wind is swishing around, and it smells like fall. i love fall!

today i'm sitting at the table with some goodies. not of the paper and silk kind, but the edible kind.

goodies + my laptop

close up of the delicious strawberries

the yummy swedish raspberry cookies

i bought both the strawberries and the cookies yesterday and am very content with both.

in other news, we'll be posting up some pictures of the packaging soon, so keep your eyes out for that! : )

newfound invitation loves.

i was browsing through my blog subscriptions today, and i found a link on one of the blogs to these wonderful invitations designed by izzy girl. aren't they pretty? i love the second one, how it's wrapped in paper and tied with thread and charms.

looking at all these (and other) custom invitations was making me think even more about different things i want to offer in our shop, so look out for new things coming soon! (hint: they might just be paper goods you see at receptions...)

duck journal & thank you tags

i am so excited about this post ! i've got 2 new awesome developments to post about, so here we go!

spotted duck journal
i just finished making this cute spotted duck journal...and it's hand-stitched with yellow thread for the binding, so it's definitely special. i think this is my favorite paper product so far : )

i had so much fun making a whole bunch of these yesterday that i had to post them up here. i was cutting circles and handwriting and punching holes -- a labor of love :)

this is a little sampling of what you'll receive with your order when it's shipped to you
: ) we have some really nice packaging in mind, so there's something else to look forward to when you order from us!

purple fabulousness

signature clutch on our etsy shop

before i forget, (i really should be getting to bed right about now) i wanted to post about one of our items that crystal made, because it's simply beautiful, and i really want one for myself. : ) she told me she had made a clutch and i hadn't seen it in person, but when i saw it up in the shop, i immediately loved it.

isn't it beautiful? i absolutely love the flower and the stitching. and of course, the purple. i love this shade of purple...it reminds me of fall.

if you're thinking along the same lines as i am, go check it out on our etsy shop and get one!

another post about etsy

so as you guys might have realized, we are paper AND silk. obviously the "silk" part is up on etsy..but where is the paper?? oops. that's me : ) i've been busy with projects for a class, freelance things, meetings, etc. but i guess i like being busy...life feels weird when it's not.

i'm still working on getting some things together to put up on etsy, so here's what you should anticipate in the coming weeks: cute birthday cards, thank you cards, blank cards, pre-printed fold-it-yourself boxes, and maybe more : )

i'm excited!!

Etsy store is open! (kinda)

Our etsy store is open, and we've already had our first sale! It's quite exciting... I was pretty much bouncing in my chair at work when I found out :)

We only have 5 items listed, and I'm still amazed that people are even viewing them. How do they find our things? When I listed my first headband and searched for it, it took me forever to find it, and I was searching for my own listing! Ah, the wonders of the world wide web.

Here's a preview of a custom order I'm working on now...

I'm surrounded my flower-shaped fabric.

I'm working on making a few clutches soon too, so keep an eye out for those! :)
