More and More

And more. A few new items to share...

Seashells! Just in time for...fall? Yes, unfortunately. It took me longer than I had hoped to get these guys on the street so here they are in late September. But it's warm and beach-like somewhere, right? These are the same concept as the Ruffles Note Set- 6 folded cards with kraft envelopes, and hand-cut edges that are stupidly time-consuming to produce, but pretty.

And birds! Another note set, this time a set of 6 A6-size folded cards with rounded corners and kraft envelopes.

And an Aflutter greeting card. A single folded card, blank inside, with the Aflutter image printed on the front.

Also, October really snuck up on me so I never got the chance to mention until now that next week, on October 9th, I'll be part of a trunk show at prettypretty shop Topaz in Harvard Square, Cambridge. Fun fun! I'll be there along with a couple of jewelry designers for a few hours in the evening. I'm actually not sure exactly what time it starts, but from what I've been told Topaz's trunk shows are a fun, kinda partytime event with music, etc. So if you're in the area please do stop by because I'll be there selling my wares and I think it should be a good time. When I get more details I will most definitely share them.

Also, if you happen to be in Canada- Hamilton, Ontario, specifically- you can now find The Paper Apartment at White Elephant Vintage. Excitement! A box of goodies is on the way up there right now, so technically it might be a few days before you can really find them. But then! Then, you can totally find them. I'm really excited to be working with the White Elephant ladies, Jane and Hollie, because besides their various online endeavors all being really great, they just seem so sweet and cute! Have a look at their blog- they're just adorable. So thanks to them, and to Canada.

That's all for now.

You! There are a couple of new notebooks in the shop. As of about 10 minutes ago. And more are on the way, too.

And I'm also very pleased to announce that I'll again be selling my wares at the Bazaar Bizarre in Boston this year! How fun. I've got a lot of new stuff planned and I hope you stop by and say hi. The festivities are back at the Cyclorama this year on December 6th. So you should probably go.

Let's Catch Up

So again, it's been a long, long time since I've updated so here is some stuff that has happened/is happening/will happen soon. Also, I've been very busy so this time I'm not going to apologize for not stopping in here sooner. Things needed to be done and I did them!

First off, I never got to mention that Daily Candy Boston did a little feature on me about a month ago, and that was pretty sweet. You can read it here, if you please.

Also, I'm way excited to share that The Paper Apartment goods are now available at the newly opened Flock in Boston's South End. Flock is a really lovely little boutique with amazing clothing and accessories and I'm absolutely thrilled for my stuff to be sold there alongside such beautiful things. So thanks again to Danielle and Maegen for the opportunity, and if you're in the area you should definitely pay them a visit at 274 Shawmut Ave. in Boston.

I've also got some new paper goods to share today. I've been building a pretty solid inventory of notebooks for the last couple of weeks (as well as new arm muscles, I'm pretty sure, from hours of cutting, scoring, and folding paper!) and here are a few of the designs:

They are all soft-cover, staple-stitch notebooks with 24 unlined pages. The larger versions are 5.5" x 8.5" and the smaller ones are 4.25" x 5.5" and come in a pack of 3. I have a couple of these already available on Etsy but the rest are on the way just as soon as I can photograph them. Also keep an eye out for a few new prints and note sets in the next couple of weeks. Bye for now!
