A time for thanks

Thanksgiving is approaching and the air is getting chilly. The leaves are a rainbow of autumn colors and the smell of cider wafts through the air - at least the air in my studio. We've got this stuff on tap over here. This is my absolute favorite time of year. Before the season gets too hectic, lets take just a moment to be thankful for what we have, where we are and what we've accomplished. I know I have so much to give thanks for including all of you. It's been a wonderful year. Happy Autumn and an even happier Thanksgiving, friends. 

- Jayme

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.

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.

Hope to see you all out this Sunday, Nov. 20th at the Fillmore from 10-5.
Get more info about the market here.

52 Week Art Challenge: August

August's art was all about lettering. A personal favorite that should not be too surprising. The cactus design is putting big hearts in our eyes over here. This one is going to be coming to the shop soon!

Happy Fall, Y'all!

We have a few new cards in the shop to celebrate the wonderfulness that is autumn. It's just starting to feel like fall here in Charlotte and I'm loving it. The leaves are starting to fade to yellow and fall from the trees. We've been spending our weekends touring the local (and not so local) cider mills. It's the best time of the year! Bring on the cider and donuts :)

Embracing Imperfection + Free Art Print

Yesterday kind of sucked. Nothing particularly bad happened, nothing really happened at all actually. It was just one of those days where I hated everything I made and nothing seemed to be flowing. You know what I'm talking about. We've all been there, probably more often than we care to admit. Even though it comes with the territory of being creative, it's still enough to make me doubt everything, most of all myself. I hate days like this. I can have 100 good days and one of these days is enough to make me question if I'm good enough to be doing what I'm doing.

WHAT!? That's ridiculous and it has to stop. Immediately. We are human, not machines. We cannot produce perfect art 100% of the time. It's just not possible. There is no shame in that and definitely not worthy of doubting our entire self-worth on.

So, I've decided to embrace days like this and try to learn something from them, instead of pretending like they don't happen.

Yesterday I embraced being imperfect and shared it with the Instagram world.

Today I am giving you a free downloadable art print. It's yours. Take it. Print it. Hang it up. Look at it when you're having one of these days. Shake it off. Just don't resell it. :)

Behind the Scenes with our Easter Cards

I've been having a lot of fun lately documenting the before and after pics of our recent new releases. I think it's so interesting to see the original sketch compared to the final product. Sometimes the drawings are used exactly as I made them and sometimes I put a lot of time into tweaking them digitally before I'm happy with how they look. Don't you just love how the color brings them to life? It amazes me every time. These are some the before and after shots of our new Easter cards.
