A new journey…

Hello, and welcome to the new Papermash blog! It was time for something new and more cohesive, so I’m wrapping up my Tea for Joy blog and I’m excited to launch this one with photos from a travel-themed shoot, styled by Charlotte Love.

I love the little Policeman! London notebook / London post-its / Travel gift tags / Red and white baker’s twine / Paris notebook / Paris post-its

Charlotte framed a page from the Rifle Paper Co 2013 calendar, which has lots of stunning images, including Sydney, Instanbul, and Amsterdam! We thought it would be a cute way to recycle the calendar when the year is done.

Our London snow globe print by Clare Owen, whose illustrations I love.

I’m officially self-employed {for now} and am loving working at home, devising little rituals, like making soup on Fridays and trying to venture outside in the first and last light hour of the day. I’m so much more aware of the seasons and the light than when I was working in an fluorescent-lit office all day. And, for any other homeworkers out there, I’d appreciate any tips on getting over the 3pm slump {which I also didn’t experience in an office.} A wise man told me recently that working at home alone {although I have a part-time helper for a while – much appreciated!} is not the same as having ‘alone time’ so as I start work early I’m sort of dedicating the 3-5pm slot to doing my own thing…still finding the rhythm.

If you didn’t read my old blog, or if you did – I hope you’ll come back and visit. Charlotte also styled an amazing Christmas story, which I’ll share very soon!
