A fresh start


I have decided to move to a new blog here: http://ameliaherbertsonblog.blogspot.com. I wanted a fresh start and to have a blog that actually has my name in the url! I am going to be posting more often and I hope you will visit me and follow me over here!


String and Twine




My sad collection of string and twine and some beautiful examples of why I love kraft paper and twine so much.

I spent my weekend outside in the winter sunshine with the dogs, looking forward to warmer weather. I hope you had a good weekend!

I've been working on some custom orders for monogram initial artworks. It's nice to know they are going to lovely homes. I have added a few more of these original artworks to my shop! Custom orders are welcome!

Postcards featuring my Red Bird linocut

The postcards I ordered arrived last week! I wanted just a little something extra for my lovely Etsy and Madeit customers, so will be including one of these in all my packages along with a stamped thank you gift tag and hand written note.


Some new things

Bits and Pieces

New Thank You tags. Hand carved stamps.

New Thank You tags made with hand carved stamps, for my lovely Etsy and Madeit customers.

My new logo stamp I ordered.

And my new logo stamp. I really love it, especially when I stamp it onto textured white cardstock or kraft paper. I am a paper/stationery nerd.


My Mother's Things

My Mother's things

I am a hoarder, my mother is a hoarder and her mother was a hoarder. As a result my parents house is filled with beautiful old knick knacks and things. Pictured are vintage wooden soldier skittles and a wooden toy dog on wheels, my Great Grandfathers cigar tins and old books, and a collection of broken shards of china and ceramics found in the backyard when gardening. I'm lucky to have such sentimental family members who hold on to these things.
