New Shop Items: Upcycled Calling Cards

I've just finished up a new item for the shop! They are calling cards, business cards or mommy cards made from upcycled paper: fashion magazines, inserts and paper samples from design magazines, concert ticket stubs, parking tickets (oops!), mailer, paper bags and other paper that would otherwise go to waste. They would make great gifts for graduates, new moms, old moms, tree trimmers, cow milkers, basket weavers, Etsy shop owners, students, party-goers or anyone in any profession! You can view them in my shop here or click the gallery to the right. Here are some in-process photos from my workspace/coffee table and some final photos. Enjoy (and tell your friends)!

New Happenings

So.... this is my first blog.

I've been busy preparing for graduation (finally!) I'm really excited... and nervous about finding a job and being a real grown up. I hope to be working on some new items for the shop soon so check back!

Here are some pics of some graduation announcements I've been working on. My sister is also graduating from college the day before I graduate, so I made her announcements too!

Natalie's announcements:

My announcements! I love this old elementary school-like paper that is lined at the bottom with unlined space to draw at the top. And of course the kraft paper envelopes. I have plans for some similar notes to sell in my shop
