Happy Friday Doodle :)

I really like doodles.
But, what do they mean? Why do we doodle a particular doodle?
I'm not sure why I drew this doodle on a rainy Friday as I listened to Conversations on 702, but here it is.

Oodles of Doodles Zine from Little Paper Planes for more oodley doodley fun!

Happy Friday Everyone :)

Coming soon!

Such a beautiful Monday, but no time to enjoy!

This week at The Little Paper House Press we are busy gathering quotes
for our first range of letterpress printed greeting cards. Letterpress printing
is at the premium end of the scale, in terms of cost, so its worth searching
near and far for that perfect supplier :)

We are also busy designing a very special fathers day card and gift pack,
for all those dad's out there who love to cook.

All these goodies will be available soon through our web site
due to launch late August

So much much to look forward too!
Can't wait :)

PS: A very HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY to one of our fav shop's Sweets Workshop.
To celebrate all prints are on sale for two weeks, as well as discounts on all
Sweets Workshop branded stationary.

Check out 'The Sun Sets in the West' prints by Emma Simmons.
Reminds me of my childhood and growing up in the inner west...
I think I might still be a 'westie' at heart :)

Pretty in Pink, Enmore Road was produced as part of the
'The Sun Sets in the West' series, by Emma Simmons

Fugu Fugu Press

It was such a beautiful day today, I couldn't bare to go home
after my morning errands, so I drove towards Manly and popped
into Pulp Creative Paper for some office supplies and a little inspiration.

I spend a lot of time looking at letterpress products on the internet,
but its nothing like holding a letterpress product in your hands.
I guess that goes for most things...

Anyway! I brought a letterpress card by Fugu Fugu Press.

How cute are these! :)

The Little Paper House Press has Biz Cards!

Its a pretty exciting day when you receive your first batch of business cards, as we found out this week when we received ours from The Hungry Workshop .

Our cards have been letterpress printed on premium grade, 100% recycled cotton stock (no trees, hooray), one colour, with a cheeky die cut on the top left hand corner.

We are so pleased the outcome.

Thank you The Hungry Workshop for your fantastic craftsmanship:)
ps: (Check out the cards they designed and printed for Mei Yen Chua. LOVE 'EM! )

Winter's here...

Winter seems to have finally settled in...

The trees are bare...

The spiders have disappeared....

I wonder if it might be a good time to re-pot our lemon tree, as it seems to have out grown its pot! :)

Colossal Clean Up

This is my imaginary book cover for a kids comic book titled Colossal Clean Up - How one squid rid the sea of plastic waste. Right that...
