I'm pleased to share my new personalizable and very versatile wrapping paper design for minted.
It's here! I'm not sure yet whether it will be profitable enough to maintain, but get over to R&B Consignments at 270 The Lynnway in Lynn to check out my booth (E) and all the other fun and funky stuff my booth-mates have on offer. I won't be hosting a grand opening as soon as I anticipated because I just had back surgery (yay! - really, it's a good thing), but I will definitely do something early this spring. FOUND's Hours are 10-5 everyday but monday. xoxo. Let me know if you plan to drop by and I will try to meet you.

Pretty and hypnotic.
(Flipagram comes with a flipagram watermark In the lower right hand corner. For 1.99 you can customize it. But it always revert back to flipagram so you need To remember to change it each time. You can access free music clips through the find music button. Or use your own music that isn't copyright protected.)
Show me your flipagrams!
In my book at least. Take a look at this playful, spare and skilled approach to children's decor.

I'm back! After 3 weeks recovering from neck surgery (more about that later) I have reopened my etsy shop and added some exciting new items. My first set of Personalized Stationery includes hand watercolored motifs in bold, jewel-like colors and printed on luxe, thick bamboo paper. Take a look!

Hope everyone had a somewhat restful holiday.Our first day back to school, plus sports, plus playdate and spelling homework is ending right now with a giant two-boy powered meltdown. I'm thankful that John is coping with it.
