large stationery box
This box is a curated collection of found and handmade items put together to create a magical little box of stationery. All paper is either repurposed or made from 100% post consumer recycled paper.
Everything is for the most part made, carved, stamped, painted, and found by me. A lot of time and love is put in these boxes with each one uniquely its own. I always include a handwritten note so please let me know if given as a gift to include another note in the message to sender section.

Personally made by me, these are blends I use constantly for myself and love. Hopefully you will enjoy them too!
Lavender black tea - *Assam black tea, *lavender flowers, *peppermint leaves
A fun switch up to regular black tea, it is great hot or cold with a little bit of honey and some oat milk (or whatever dairy/alternative you drink).
Happy days tea - *red rose petals, *oat straw, *raspberry leaf, *hibiscus, *calendula petals
The colours and smell of this blend just makes me feel happy. A nice light herbal tea; it isn’t overpowering in taste. If you find it tastes watery you can add more teaspoons of leaves per cup. The tea turns to a beautiful light pink when brewed.
Sleepy time tea - *peppermint leaves, *German chamomile, *licorice root, *valerian
A minty chamomile tea that can be good hot or cold (great for going to bed during the summer). A good alternative to help someone go to sleep if they don’t like a strong chamomile taste and prefer something slightly more invigorating to help calm down. Since there is a small amount of valerian root in this, people can find it smells bad, however I find it doesn’t transfer into the taste of the tea.
Inside dimensions - fits almost exactly a half sheet of paper (5.5x8.5 inches)
Outside dimensions - 23x15x5.5 cm (9 1/8x5 7/8x 2 1/4 inches)
For an additional charge, I can personalize the front of the box.
I try to be a low impact business (not sustainable) striving to bring joy and create with less of a negative impact on the Earth. However, there is always a contradiction between trying to limit pollution and producing art, consumerism can never be sustainable.
- Many materials I use are only thrifted or recycled including binding thread, fabric, and sometimes paper.
- All new paper and cardstock I buy is 100% recycled (30-100% PC recycled)
- All scraps when making jewelry and books are saved. Some are stored to figure out what to do with other are turned into embeds (from the wings), book marks, stuffing in fabric mushrooms, or bedding for my red wiggler worms.
Even with the intentional thought I put into the impact I make as a business and artist; I am cognizant that there is more that needs to be done to be sustainable. This is a responsibility we share together as members of society, by changing regulations and policies on top of individual choices.

Jewelry will come in a black velvet bag while books will be wrapped in paper. Products will be shipped in a reused cardboard boxes or bubble mailer so your items will arrive in perfect condition. Items are shipped through USPS.
I do NOT offer express shipping or rush orders (shipping is more efficient when they have more time = less environmental impact)
I am a very small business working on limited stock, so returns and exchanges are not always possible. Most of my products are final sale, all returns/exchanges/refunds are negotiated on a case by case basis. Please contact me about your request here.
