Making everything from custom confetti and cake toppers to hand printed social stationery the old fashioned way, by hand with loads of patience and care, is my way of preserving an important way of life - one that is infinitely more personal and meaningful than anything that has been mass produced in a factory.
One of my simple joys in life is the smell of paper: old, new, printed on, or plain. I can often be spotted slipping into a bookstore just to get a quick whiff of a new book. So, its not much of a stretch that my love of folk art and paper have evolved into a bit of an obsession with me. I love taking a group of materials and transforming them into something else. Scissors, paper, ink, and glue is my kind of chemistry set. And Birdcage Cards is where I get to share all those hand crafted paper concoctions of mine with the world.
Over the years as my craft has grown this little paper shop of mine has evolved into a whole lot more than just hello and I couldn't be happier (and busier) because of it.
lots of love,
- Kate ♥
