What's New with Perky Paper?

Back in February I signed a tiny little lease for a potting table inside GinGilli's Vintage Home in Geyserville, CA.  I've always been wondering if I could make a little business selling my handmade cards and this seemed like a great opportunity to try it!  The past few months that's what I've been working on - neglecting my blog and occasionally my household responsibilities! ;)  My creative mind quickly bypassed the card idea and went to all sorts of things: painting little items with chalk paint, finding & reselling small collectibles, sewing items to sell, etc.  My cards seem to be a consistently selling item, so I really need to focus back on that.  "Do one thing and do it well" comes to mind.

My other very consistent seller are my photo booth props.  Mustaches, glasses, top hats, and ties made of paper and mounted on sticks.  Simple but so fun! Saturday I was at the shop and a lady was there showing the shop keeper her phone. "There's Perky Paper right now!" the shop keeper said.  The lady then told me how she had purchased a top hat & tie from my space and used them in a photo shoot.  She said it was really fun and the pictures turned out great!  I was so glad to know that my little props were used to capture someone's fun personality!

Just Buzzing By...

Yes, I have totally neglected my blog for a while!! Sorry for the huge void in posts!  I started selling my cards & paper crafts at Gin Gilli's Vintage Home Collective in Geyserville.  It has been keeping me super busy! I will post some pics of my little space soon, but for now I thought I'd highlight one of my favorite paper lines from the new catalog! The Buzz & Bumble paper goes really well with all the bumble bee themed cards & projects I've been working on!  Hexagon's & bees are super hot right now in the papercrafting world! So check out the Workshop on the Go layout above.  I love the stamp set that is in the Workshop so much that I might have to get the whole thing just for the lovely little bee stamp! 

The hexagon stamp set featured in the layout above is also really cool!  It would be great for cards as well! Hope this quick post keeps your creativity buzzing..... :)
