: a paper doll and envelope :


I love to dress up my envelopes. There are so many things you can do with paper, string, and other pretty goodies. I'm a paper dork...yeah okay, and these little things thrill me.

This envelope I dressed up for my friend Makiko, who was so nice enough to get me my new Fuji Instax Mini 25 instant camera and a bunch of other goodies when she was in Japan.
Thanks Makiko!


  1. OMG U GOT A FUJI INSTANT CAMERA?! I saw one of those on ebay a while ago, and they're sooooooooooooo cute and cool! You're lucky u got one cause they don't sell them in the USA! Please bring it back to Kauai next month so we can play with it!

  2. Good idea! I will bring it when I come home :)

  3. oooo, i like what u did with your dollie! etsy is calling!

    Makiko: Hiyee! Thank you thank you! Oh and I want to go to Japan soo bad! I'm dreaming of it right now!

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
