Finance job by day, creative outlet by night.
It started with a love of school supplies, branched into stationery stores and has continued to this day (am I really almost 50?). I have been making paper crafts, scrapbooks, journals and cards for years, both for myself and others. Thought I might take the plunge to surprise my husband with a trip for our upcoming 20th anniversary!
While looking for a coffee mug for my newly twinmom sister-in-law, I came across the option to design it myself. As I love to make items in canva and the like, I thought this would be a fun way to personalize mugs for people, who like myself, were denied the opportunity to own anything imprinted with my name while growing up. Here's homage to all of us with weird spellings or nicknames that, while unique, leave us always looking on those spinner racks just hoping to glimpse an item besides "blank."
Edited to add - the 52 reasons card albums are a hit. I'm going to be adding lots of photos of past albums to this link because you can only upload 5 photos per item. I like to personalize these if you want it specific to your needs, but would like to show a wider variety of work. I'll also have some sample lists you could use to jumpstart your own 52 reasons.

Frequently asked questions
Why do mugs take longer than albums or vintage?
Mugs are designed by me but printed at a third source, then directly shipped to the purchaser. I ship remaining items from my home and thus can control how long it takes to ship.
Does it always take 3 days to make a card album?
Sometimes I can do it in one day depending on work obligations, home obligations, volunteer schedule, etc. I don't like to rush through something intended as a special gift and want to make sure it has the time put into it it deserves.
If your need is immediate, shoot me a combo and inquire. There are times I can get one sent out the next day.
Where do you find your vintage items?
Both my husband and myself love going to estate sales and antique shops to poke around finding treasures. We've also been known to find amazing stuff at Goodwill or Value Village. It's like a treasure hunt!
We don't need everything we find. Otherwise, our house could be featured on an episode of Hoarders.
