Introducing: Swoon Paper Studio

The lucky winner is Marta! Please contact me at with your info so I can get you your prize :). Thanks for playing!

The shop is officially open for business!  I really hope you'll take the time to check it out.  I'm dying to know what you think!

I'm new to this, so if you run into any glitches with viewing products or ordering, would you mind letting me know?

About a year ago, I was doing the same things I am now (dreaming up designs, finding ways to make new things and swooning over lovely things).  I had this feeling that if I stepped out a bit that I might find some other people who felt the same way about life.  So I started to blog.  And I couldn't stop.

The fact that anyone would want to read this or be interested in the occasional project that I photographed in my pajamas is amazing to me.  I don't always believe it.  Until I remember how much I like peeking into other people's lives, reading the thoughts they think, and looking at pictures of their crazy pajama projects.  Thank you for sticking with me.

Alright, you've made it through the sappy part.  How about a little giveaway?  Consider it a big "thank you" for being a part of Swoon.

A mini party in a box!  Prize includes 6 black & white fill in the blank invites with coordinating yellow envelopes, 6 mini glassine favor bags, 12 gray stripey straws, 6 bamboo spoons, 12 yellow stripey cupcake liners, 6 Hooray cupcake toppers (find them in the shop here), and a bit of black & white ribbon on a vintage spool.
