Being 32 now... I can look back on these few adult years under my belt and point to several key shifts in life. Leaving a corporate job and a very typical post-college life in my mid-twenties to chase a dream of having my own business is definitely the first. Followed by getting married to my amazing husband and starting a family together. The next major shift in my business is taking place right now with the release of the Essentialist Collection. I have been a letterpress printer since early 2012. When I started this business, admittedly I had no idea what I was doing - but I was hungry to figure it all out. I wanted to work with clients and create beautiful things. Occasionally I worked on personal projects or designs that pushed the limits of my ability, but never fully had time to dedicate to see a full collection through. Now after spending more than 5 years swirling in the paper and stationery world, I feel ready to introduce my ideas and the products I am excited to use and live with everyday.
I call it the Essentialist Collection because of the discipline with which I approached designing the pieces. As a lover of stationery, I have to exercise restraint not become a paper goods hoarder. Often I buy something beautiful and it sits buried at the bottom of my desk - never to see the light of day again, let alone make it into someone's mailbox! I want this collection to be a true reflection of me - subtle luxury that you can integrate into your daily life. This collection focuses on the celebration of color while showcasing the simplicity of great design. I created the three pieces - the Notebook, the Stationery, and the Memo Box - to present in this first collection. Rather than doing it all, we are doing what matters - the essentials.
I hope you enjoy immersing yourself in the Essentialist Collection. Thanks for visiting.
