We Are Packing For The Show - Sneak Peak

Elizabeth and I are BUSY BUSY BUSY packing Monahan Papers for the New York Stationary Show. Its only two weeks before we leave and we are designing, finishing projects and packing the boxes. I thought it would be fun to share a few new items featuring the artwork of STACEY MEADE!!! How exciting is that....... I am thrilled. Together Stacey and I are doing an entirely new Halloween line. Here are a few pieces of her artwork I turned into 11" X 17" wall pictures. The frame is by Beth and Bill at Primitiques. The picture can be popped out of the back if you want to change it out for each season. I love these frames. AND YES... before you email and ask these will be available in the new RUBBER STAMP LINE.

This is one of my favorite NEW items I have been trying to get done for a long time... Graveyard Cards. These are available as flat cards in a 5" X 7" or a postcard in 4" X 6". Each will come in a set of six with a quill all packaged inside a pitch envelope and closed with our own Monahan Papers Seal. The packaging will feature the artwork of the design inside and can be framed and used as cupboard print. There is NO WASTE here. WE ARE GOING GREEN with recycled hand dyed papers.

As ALWAYS please feel free to call us any time if you have any questions... We love hearing from you...

What Happens When The Pipes Break In The Kitchen

Sad to say Beth and Bill awoke to a lovely waterfall in the kithen in early April. This is what it looks like when the pipes break in the walls of a VERY VERY old home. More pictures to follow as they tear out the kitchen and do a complete make-over.
