Easter is right around the corner

Spring is coming in like a lion, or really more like a snow storm. We're anxiously waiting for warmer temperatures that will hopefully be here soon. And that means we've got our Easter cards ready for you. This is one of our new favorites.

We're a Featured Shop on Etsy!

Guys.. super excited to tell you this. We've been featured on the Etsy blog! I've been keeping this under wraps for the last few months, but the day is here. I can finally shout it from the rooftops. Thank goodness! I really love what I do and I really love all of you for making it possible for me to do this. Thank you all for your support over the last few years. It's been a incredible journey and it truly means the world to me you're here. Check out the article here.

Love Cards Rock My World

Valentine's Day cards have arrived in the shop! Mushy love cards are so overrated. 

Happy Holidays with Love

From the bottom of our hearts, we'd like to wish you the happiest holiday season. It's been an incredible year and we are so looking forward to what 2017 has in store. 

Our shop is going to be closed from Wednesday, Dec. 21 through Tuesday, Dec. 27. All orders placed during this time will be shipped on Wednesday, Dec. 28. Inquiries will also be responded to at that time. We are looking forward to taking a break to spend time with family and friends and hope you all do the same. 

Until we return, make sure to follow along with my daily Instagram advent project I've been working on all month long. I'll be posting daily through Christmas. Come join the party!

Warmest wishes,
Jayme

Join me for a Holiday Hand Lettering Class on Dec. 6

I'm partnering up with AR Workshop Davidson to teach my first-ever hand lettering class. Hooray! Local friends, come out on Dec. 6th from 7-9:30 p.m. to learn how to make your holiday mail look extra special. I will teach you my process, how I layout my designs, draw my letters and show you how to make your envelopes really pop! Not only will your recipients love them, but so will your mail carrier ;) You'll receive a packet of the same tools I use everyday to create designs for my greeting card business and handouts to take home to keep learning and practicing. Get behind the scenes knowledge about how I do what I do with guided techniques and tips to hone your new skill. It's going to be a fun night, filled with wonderful people.

Hennel Paper Co. goes on NBC's Charlotte Today!

What a whirlwind the last couple weeks have been! This morning I had the pleasure of appearing on NBC's Charlotte Today to talk a little bit about Hennel Paper Co. and help promote the Vintage Charlotte Winter Market that's coming up this weekend with the lovely Amy Herman, founder of Vintage Charlotte. It was so much fun and now that I survived it, I can breathe again ;) 

You can watch the clip here.

52 Week Art Challenge: October

October's art challenge is done and I did them a little differently this month. I've been spending a lot of time working on the the iPad in the Procreate app. I really love the flexibility it provides and not to mention the fact that I can work on the couch with the tv on instead of being tied to my desk. Most of my creative time happens late, like really late, after everything else is done for the day, so it's nice to be able to relax a little while I'm still working into the wee hours of the night. Good thing I really love what I do. :) I'm so excited about these new pieces. I hope you are, too!
