Welcome! I'm Rachel. Paper goods thrill me. I create whimsical, cute, fun designs that will make you smile. I can't help itâmy love for design is innate. I grew up surrounded in artistry; my mom was a weaver, my dad was a blacksmith, and my Nana, Elsie, cultivated my creativity.
Elsie was an amazing woman who, from a tiny white cottage on Martha's Vineyard, would write me letters every week on the cutest stationery. She would have me practice drawing straight lines, and she was undeniably sweet. But there was one time when she made me clean her dentures for saying a not-so-lady-like word! To this day, I have flashbacks of standing in front of that sink, scrubbing away. Nana believed in me like no other. My nana understood that little things that made people smile were big things. So years later, I have dedicated my business to Sweet Elsie. I currently live in Austin, Texas, with my husband and daughter. I strive to be for my daughter what my own mom was to meâa creative inspiration to live my dreams.
Please take a look around. I hope you delight in seeing these designs as much as it delights me to create them. I hope they make you smile.
