I am so excited to finally tell you all about her and our little endeavor.
First off, her name is Tara Felder the owner of Jot Papers in Columbia, SC. An amazing graphic designer that has over the past 4 years developed quite a portfolio of beautiful custom stationery. If you want anything custom that has to do with paper and design....she is your girl!
AND (insert drum roll)
We are now partners in Creative Crime! About 3 weeks ago we started the arduous process of transforming a dreary office space into a light and bright studio space. I mean blood, sweat, and tears ya'll....literally! Late nights, weekends, kids in tow, it has been an adventure. More than once we would both step away, mulling over another decision...and blurt out the same idea. Separated at birth...maybe:)
We have so much in store for our little space. Lots of creative energy bouncing around the walls. From both of our business's everyday work to collaborative efforts involving everything from paper to fabric to furniture, there will be lots of projects to share.
Tara is working tirelessly on a new e-commerce Website Jot Papers showcasing all of her work, so for those of your that are not local, her work will be available to you with a click of a finger.
As for me, I am so happy to be out of my creative vacuum....life might just get a little easier and more productive....2012 is shaping up to be quite a year.
Oh, and if you want to stop by the studio. We are open by appointment, but if you stop by and the lights are on, knock twice hold your breath and knock 3 more times....someone will come to the door. Don't be surprised if there is a paintbrush or staple gun, or we are surrounded by paint and paper swatches in hand.....it is just 2 girls doing withat they love most....creating!
Stop by and see us, or you can find us both online. Tara has a fun inspirational blog, Jot Papers.
