Keepsake Dreams Collection

My first collection of handcrafted cards, which I’m naming Keepsake Dreams, is underway.

My “cards” aren’t just cards; meaning they’re not the typical cards you might find at a Hallmark or other stationery store.

Those types of greeting cards are usually:

  1. standard sizes (like 4″ x 6″ or 5″ x 7″ — and some specialty sizes may be even larger)
  2. mass-manufactured (USA or from around the world)
  3. made from a range of card stocks

On the latter third point, while some store-based greeting card stocks come from recycled paper, not all do.

My cards, however, are quite different in a number of ways, including:

  1. mini-sized … most are 2″ x 1.5″ in size (some a bit bigger but not by much)
  2. 100% handcrafted and completely one-of-a-kind … no assembly lines or mass productions
  3. eco-friendly … only found or recycled paper/stock is used

For these reasons, my “cards” are more like timeless, mini works of sustainable paper-art keepsakes to be cherished and treasured.

My debut collection — Keepsake Dreams — showcasing art collage and mixed media themes, consists of 10 beautiful pieces and will be my first batch of handcrafted paper goods products to be listed for sale here on my site this coming January.

Progress and launch dates are forthcoming 🙏🏽


Yours in art and creative expression,
