About Dear Handcrafted Paper Goods

I'm a bookmaker and a poet who finds beauty in the imperfections of something made by hand. It's why I started Dear Handcrafted Paper Goods. I wanted a place to keep my writing where the outside reflected what's inside. A place created from my own passions, which in turn creates new passions, yours. I find inspiration all around me. Mostly from nature. You'll see it not only in the words I write, but in the products I make and papers I choose – from hand-deckled edges to dried flower accents to tree-free papers like recycled cotton and lokta. I keep my designs simple so the focus stays on the words and illustrations you'll carefully put inside.
