Leaving a Paper Trail

In a society where utilizing technology and conserving resources makes "being green" cool it's a little sad to lose touch with the art of writing.

I remember when, in high school, my friend Karen's family moved away. We were sure we would each die without the other but we wrote letters at least once a week and somehow survived the distance between us. I would dash home from school everyday and peek into the mailbox hoping to find her letter filled with all she was experiencing at her new high school. Then I'd spend the evening filling her in on all the news and gossip from "home".

How sad that the days of those snail mail letters are a thing of the past. Now we tweet, text, email and yes, we even blog! It seems so - mechanical - impersonal -UGH!

My answer? My new little business, LEAVING A PAPER TRAIL. I'm renting a small space in a shop where you can purchase a wide variety of individual or boxed note cards - all designed, cut, stamped, colored and assembled by little old me. I'm located in THINGS IN A ROOM at 239 E. Main Street, Fredericksburg, TX. They are open 7 days a week and have an amazing selection of items. Absolutely everything you could possibly desire from vintage clothing and jewelry to handmade treasures, a sort of "something for everybody" shopping experience.

So, plan a day trip to Fredericksburg. There's lots to do, good food and small town charm. Stop by THINGS IN A ROOM and take a look at my display. It's a modest little beginning but completely manageable for now.

With the holidays approaching I'm also offering handmade Christmas Cards (so much better than those old boxed ones you've been buying), some very cute, very affordable teacher and Secret Santa gifts and of course some fabulous little stocking stuffers. That's all I'm telling you for now. You will have to venture out and see for yourselves.

Planning an event - Need a whimsical baby announcement - Want an original kick ass invitation for your next party - Or just need a sweet little note card for someone special? I'm your girl!

I'm adding a couple of pics below to pique your interest. Enjoy and remember to share my blog with your friends! It' great advertising and SO affordable...LOL
