What can you do with handmade and specialty paper?

*Special Announcement to Our Valued Customers*

We have temporarily closed our online Shopify store due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please feel free to window shop our lovely shop but you will be unable to actually place an order for now. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Send an email to valree@shaw.ca –

If you would like to be notified when we reopen for business.
As we have a limited supply of paper and cards on hand, you may want to send a list of your preferred items so we can put them aside for you in anticipation of reopening.
We look forward to resuming business as usual. In the meantime take good care of yourself and please stay safe.

Regards, Valerie and Pam
