My little friend, now 7-years old, visited recently. She went to her corner, picked up some blank paper and her basket of crayons. As she sat down to draw, she said, “I enjoy playing with paper.” I could only reply, “So do I.” This year I have been playing with paper in new ways.
Spending time perusing sites like the Library of Congress Prints and National Gallery of Art. Imagining how available imagery might appear on items from a stamp to a sticker to a paper plate. It is a new creative outlet, producing products that I hope people enjoy for themselves or as gifts for others of all ages.
My image selections are influenced by the people and events around me. In recent weeks I’ve found myself in conversation with cat lovers, musicians and folks who enjoy entertaining others.
The shop where these items can be found is called StationeryWorks because it began with my desire to dress up the letters that I was sending to friends and family. It will continue to evolve. I hope you have a chance to check it out. 😉
