Since I was a really young girl I’ve always collected journals full of beautifully lined paper, or even better yet, a cover full of blank pages just ready to be filled with whatever my heart fancies. To me, these symbolize a world of possibility. Anything could be written on a blank piece of paper, (IE. a poem that helps a person explain their feelings, a novel that makes a person famous, or even a love letter that brings two people together.) Paper can easily be the medium that does all of that and more.
Now on to me and how this love for such a simple thing like paper has effected my life today. I am a person who loves paper goods of practically any kind. Walking into a store like “Paper Source” or “Papyrus” is like walking into Disneyland to me! I find the different kinds of paper to be utterly fascinating just like a child in Disneyland finds every ride and character to be fascinating. This has been one of the biggest factors that has steered my life in the course towards graphic artistry.
Because of my newfound interest in this subject I have been figuring out how to take my passions and create them into a realistic job. From this brainstorm, my very own stationery shop was born. Taking my love for paper goods and creating my own has brought me an unbelievable amount of joy (which everyone’s passion should)! Working with a client and creating a card or invite that fits exactly what they are looking for is an incredible rush! So with this crazy journey, Madeliene Designs has officially been born!
This shop has started with greeting cards, and I hope to eventually launch into creating wedding suites! I have been so blessed to have some sales already, and am really hoping to have this business grow even more! With the start of my company I am also hosting an Instagram giveaway. You can head over to the Instagram linked above and the rules are in the photo below. Anyone can win!! I love and appreciate all the support and entries!
